Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “A Course in Miracles” scribed by Helen Schucman.
Continuing in this month’s-long exploration of “A Course in Miracles”, I am delighted and oh-so-very excited to share these Prayer to Passage moments and reflections with you.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Today was your gift for all of my hard work throughout these past six months. Everything that seemed to be symbolic of endings, of death, at the close of last year was made pure and adored in this evenings culmination of delight. Thank You for joy, for love, and for honor. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage on page 59:
“It cannot be emphasized too often that correcting perception is merely a temporary expedient. It is necessary because misperception is a block to knowledge, while accurate perception is a steppingstone towards it.”
—A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Tonight I had a the most romantic full circle moment I could have ever hoped to receive. I was in union with my childhood crush. We were physically together in a long awaited evening of bliss and enjoyment. I am longing for this big cup, this big love. I am longing for this blooming flower. I am longing for this surfacing story. The magic of our conversation across the table at the romantic French restaurant, the years-long awaited first kiss beneath the twinkling lights in winter’s barren trees.
The hug and the holding of hands in the city’s central park. The song that played in the lobby as we stated our loving goodnight to one another. It was all a fairytale. Wait. No, this all really happened. The evening of passionate embrace. The hope and discovery available in it all. The possibility of a continuing fairytale in a real, down-to-earth life. Two people finally brought together in union. The very beginning of a continuing story, a new horizon, and a promising future in Love.
