Are You Created for The New?

Are You Created for The New?

In A Course of Love’s 4th treatise, A Treatise on the New, all are called to continue as forerunners and prophets of the new. Asked to accept a wisdom beyond our personal capacity, we have been summoned to be beacons of the new and to establish the covenant of the...

Acting on Faith

…in the source of A Course of Miracles and A Course of Love   In October of 1962, when I was seven years old, the country was gripped by the Cuban missile crisis. Soviets had installed missiles 90 miles from the coast of the United States. This was a clear...
The Manner of Knowing and Sharing

The Manner of Knowing and Sharing

One thing I’ve come to know by receiving what I have in the last twenty-five years, is that what we know we’re meant to do, is a non-choice. It’s a non-choice because it’s a knowing. This is not something we know because we’ve learned it, or heard about it, and...
The Element of Surprise

The Element of Surprise

Time is an element, tied to its own becoming. There, in our awareness, it’s loosened from what it was; our passage happening within time’s unfolding of itself.  Time carries us. The sense of being caught in it may be, could be, wouldn’t it be nice if it were actually...
The Surprise of Being Spontaneous

The Surprise of Being Spontaneous

Yesterday I went to the Farmers Market with my husband, Donny, the first time we’ve gone together this year. We bought parsley, green onions, and tomatoes, the makings for tabouli. Back at home, I stood at the sink for an hour or two getting it ready—washing all the...

When my family bought the rambler where I still live, I was 40 years old, and was moving from a neighborhood just a block from where I’d grown up. It was a pleasant surprise, then, to find that our next-door neighbor was Mr. Mooney. He was an English teacher to both...
Expanding The Theme of Time

Expanding The Theme of Time

My friend Lee Flynn reminded me the other day of an early article I wrote for Miracles Magazine. Most of it was taken from the journal I kept in the time leading up to my reception of A Course of Love. My work, from ACOL to Creation of The New, to the books of the Way...
Expanding Space in us for The New

Expanding Space in us for The New

My time with Jesus (receiving ACOL, 1998-2001) set me in motion for the mystical experience that writing Creation of the New became. Jesus and Mary both invite us to newness in a way that elicits change, yet we’re encouraged in a manner subtle enough that we don’t try...
Expanding on Themes and Memories of Love

Expanding on Themes and Memories of Love

The reading we do can be among the greatest change agents of our lives, whether it’s of “holy” writing, environmental warnings, or great literature. Since writing “Memoria,” many memories have been swirling around in me. Some are memories of life events I’d long...
Expanding Events of Memory

Expanding Events of Memory

Memory and “Memoria” (oddly enough) expand “The New.” I say “oddly” because when speaking of memory, I imagine that most of us usually think of the past. “Memoria” (Book II of The Way of the Marys), speaks of “the miraculous and often ignored human capacity for, and...
