A Brasilian friend recently challenged me to take on the year-long practice of A Course In Miracles. He and another Brasilian friend have invited me to this work after having experiencing my Honor Window and related honoring work, and sharing with me how aligned my work is with A Course In Miracles. Indeed, the Honor Window work especially opens up profound “miracles” for people.
And right now I am not feeling A Course In Miracles as my path. I felt into it, and I am not a “Yes.” Therefore I am a “No.” Not a “maybe,” not a “not right now,” but a no. Clarity for me on my path arises from my body and heart in the form of a YES! Or, it doesn’t. And if it doesn’t, I’m a No. Not a maybe, a No. Tomorrow things could be different, I am speaking only for this moment–as the heart speaks in the present. But only the mind can say “not right now, maybe tomorrow.” The heart, methinks, says YES or it doesn’t. This, I feel, is an essential guidance tool for the Visionary Troubadour.
In my mind I have reasoning for saying no, which is less important. For example, from my exposure to A Course In Miracles previously and from reading excerpts over the past few days, I feel it as a very intellectual path to the miracles of the heart. And on my journey away from American Culture, I’m far more interested in following a path of miracles which invites me into and through the wisdom of my own experience,my body and my heart… and which does not take me through the tunnels of my intellect to open up my heart and body.
For me the Visionary Troubadour path is a kind of “course in miracles,” as it invites me daily to confront the fear-based conditioning of my culture that would keep me separate from others, and calls me to open, to trust, to see beyond, to give without care for reciprocation, to connect, to love…
And the intellectual weaving of Christianity through everything for me just serves to invite me further into my head right now…
So, I am a No to A Course In Miracles, and a YES to A Path In Miracles. And I am a YES to both of my dear Brasilian friends and the invitation they are to me in who they are.
