“You have so little faith in yourself because you are unwilling to accept the fact that perfect Love is in you, and so you seek without for what you cannot find within.~ACIM
The problem is not the judgment or hatred we have for others – it’s the judgment we have for ourselves. If we stopped judging ourselves, we would cease to judge others. ~ Anita Moorjani
You can be happy for no reason at all, and peace can be experienced in spite of whatever seems to be going on. Explore the freedom of being able to choose the way that you feel.
Holy/Wholly/Divine Spirit will direct you only so as to avoid pain. Surely no one would object to this goal if he recognized it. The problem is not whether what the Wholly Spirit says is True, but whether you want to listen to what Spirit says.
All worldly desires have nothing to do with what you really want. But it does you no good to just pretend that you don’t have these desires. Go ahead and get these things of the world that you think you want. The sooner you do, the sooner you will see that this is not what you really want. Then we can talk about Peace, Joy and an awareness of Love.
