A Course In Miracles

A Course In Miracles
Let me remember I am one with God. Our shining footprints point the way to truth, for God is our Companion as we walk the world a little while.

The one wholly true thought one can hold about the past is that it is not here. To think about it at all is therefore to think about illusions.


Everything is unfolding perfectly. And as you relax and find ease in your attitude of trust, knowing that Well-Being is your birth-right, amazing things will happen, things the likes of which you have not seen before.

Let go of the oars...  Everything you want is downstream.

The purpose of your life is Joy.

Your life is right now. It's not later. It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now... until it gets better right now!

Your time is a perceptual thing, and even though the clock is ticking the same for everyone, your alignment affect your perception, as well as the results that you allow.

Adele  1988
Everything I do, in every channel of my life, is part of a legacy that I’m making for my child. For my children, if I have more. I’m not motivated by much, certainly not money - but I’m motivated by that.

It’s very easy to give in to being famous, because it’s charming, it’s powerful, it draws you in. Really, it’s harder work resisting it. But after a while I just refused to accept a life that was not real.

The energy of the mind is the essence of life.

Thou wilt find rest from vain fancies if thou doest every act in life as though it were thy last.

We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence therefore, is not an act... but a habit.

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.

The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow... are the BUTS you use today.

The world is waiting for you to wake up to the person you are called to be. Stop listening to the negative inner conversation that's causing you to play small.

Lorna Byrne

Lorna Byrne  1953
Children are our future, and the only way for the world to evolve, as I have been shown it should be, is for each generation to be more loving and compassionate than the one before. This is only possible if we support the children around us, and protect and encourage them so that they don’t need to lock their love away.

If we could acknowledge to ourselves and to our good friends that we love them, our lives would be more fulfilled and happy.

The sadness and pain surrounding the death of a parent, brother or sister can bring with it an unexpected gift, and help families to become closer. It can help bring shared memories to light, and be a reminder of love that was shared in the past.

Rhonda Byrne

Rhonda Byrne 1951
Every day in every moment, you make the choice... whether to love and harness the positive force or not.

Life doesn't happen to you, you receive everything in your life based on what you've given.

Life is so much easier than you think it is, and as you come to understand the way life works, and the power you have inside you, you will experience the magic of life in its fullness.

The life of your dreams, everything you would love to be, do or have, has always been closer to you than you knew... because the power to everything you want is inside you.

The positive force of love can create anything good, increase the good things and change anything negative in your life.

Whatever you give out in life is...  what you receive back in life.

Without exception, every person who has a great life used love to achieve it. The power to have all the positive and good things in life is love.

You are creating your life with your thoughts and your feelings. Whatever you think and feel creates everything that happens to you and everything you experience in life.

You can change your life, because you have an unlimited ability to think and talk about what you love, and so you have an unlimited ability to bring everything good in life to you.

Lord Byron

Lord Byron1788 - 1824 
Life's enchanted cup sparkles near the brim.

Every day that is born into the world comes like a burst of music and rings the whole day through, and you make of it a dance, a dirge, or a life march, as you will.

Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain, but what we do.

History shows that the majority of people that have done anything great have passed their youth in seclusion.

No great man lives in vain. The history of the world is but the biography of great men.

Nothing that was worthy in the past departs; no truth or goodness realised by man ever dies, or can die.

Jim Carrey

Rachel Carson

A child can teach an adult three things...  
To be happy for no reason.

And to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.

All you have to do is to pay attention; lessons always arrive when you are ready, and if you can read the signs, you will learn everything you need to know in order to take the next step.

Important encounters are planned by the Souls long before the bodies see each other.

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

Straight roads do not make skillful drivers.

When each day is the same as the next, it's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

Life is just a vehicle through which you get to unleash your presence.

The quality of your life is determined by the clarity of your connection to yourself.

Your commitment to honouring your perfection and potential is the key that opens the door to endless days of vitality, abundance and love. Your connection to your health and spirituality is not sourced from your identity or your mind. It is sourced from the Soul. This deeper place - your authentic Soul Signature - is where we have to go to find the truth of your being.

Your Soul Signature is your spiritual DNA - who you are at your core, the most authentic part of you. When we begin to tap into our inherent power, step out of the shadows of fear and self-doubt, and begin living and speaking our truth, we're healthier, happier and in harmony with ourselves.
