Happy 2017, everyone! This month I will be drawing passages from my beloved book “A Course in Miracles” scribed by Helen Schucman. I am so deeply in love with this book. Starting around the summertime of this past year, 2016, I had been given increasing signs and symbols, whispers and Spirit nudges, that I should go out a purchase a copy of “A Course in Miracles” and start to infuse it into my Spiritual life. I did not know why. I only knew that I was meant to meet the writing and discover how it transitions my life. So… Here we go. Let’s do this! Today is day one of my month’s-long inquiry into God with this miraculous book. A book of love…
Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “A Course in Miracles” by Helen Schucman.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Wishing You a very Happy New Year. What is the start to 2017 in the Loving Energy this book provides?”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal the following passage on page 347:
“And though we use a different name for each awareness of an aspect of God’s Son, we understand that they have but one Name, which He has given them. It is this Name we use in practicing. And through Its use, all foolish separations disappear which kept us blind. And we are given strength to see beyond them. Now our sight is blessed with blessings we can give as we receive.
Father, our Name is Yours. In It we are united with all living things, and You Who are their one Creator. What we made and call by many different names is but a shadow we have tried to cast across Your Own reality. And we are glad and thankful we were wrong. All our mistakes we give to You, that we may be absolved from all effects our errors seemed to have. And we accept the truth You give, in place of every one of them. Your Name is our salvation and escape from what we made. Your Name unites us in the oneness which is our inheritance and peace. Amen.”

In this transition, may we be reminded that we are, each and every one of us, the Sons and Daughters of God. Our Names to God are of Divine Sons and Divine Daughters. Change does not mean that we are forced into a Love narrative that does not serve us. Our Love narrative is not meant to be forced, it is meant to be perfectly natural. We are the natural Children of God. And this is a place from which to begin. This is a perfectly natural beginning, a perfect force of nature. And we may create a narrative Love Song that flows from Divine Creativity, through inspired destiny.
