“Nothing prepared me for being this awesome. It’s kind of a shock to wake up every morning and be bathed in this purple light.”—Bill Murray
It has come to my attention that there are people out there who discount the importance of gratitude. They think it’s beneath them, too Pollyanish. They think it’s important right now to struggle, to fight, to fix all the problems.
But what if the frequency of joy and gratitude is just another synonym for the Divine? What if it’s the purple light Bill Murray is talking about? What if the only reason we think we’re in trouble is because our thoughts and energy are vibrating on a frequency that doesn’t match the Bigger Thing?
My Course in Miracles lesson for today is “I am blessed as a Son of God.” This is what all of us are entitled to—being blessed, being happy, being peaceful, being loving and loved. And anything that doesn’t line up with that frequency is an illusion, a mirage that we created and we can change. Simply by picking a different door.
As the Course also says, “The separated ones have invented many cures for what they perceive to be the ‘ills of the world.’ But the one thing they do not do is question the reality of the problem.”
Today, I have decided to question the reality of all my so-called problems and bask in the sheer deliciousness of the purple light.
And since you all seem to enjoy the stories, here’s one that recently popped into my inbox
“I am a single mother from Germany and today I wanna thank you. My life has changed so much in the past 12 month that I sometimes can’t believe this is really happening. Last June I hated my job and I prayed for help and the FP responded instantly. I woke up the very next morning and I couldn’t walk anymore because it was too painful. The doctors didn’t know why and so I stayed at home crawling on my butt for nearly 2 months.
“After 5 weeks I got fired (getting fired is not very easy in Germany :-)). Instead of panicking, I stayed calm and the first time in my life I was full of trust. I decided to become a freelance writer and artist and I have never been more happy.
“Actually it’s the first time in my life that I truly love my life and that I am not crying Friday night because I have to go back to work on Monday morning. I started a blog for other single mothers to become more happy with being a single parent and I started painting again. I don’t know why I ever stoped being creative because now I just can’t get enough! I send a portfolio to an online gallery and they send me a contract back!! I am so happy! Plus it’s the first time I got enough money to travel outside Europe! I have never left Europe although I wanted to travel since I am 4 years old.
“Because of you and your books I know that there is something out that’s helping me. And I don’t have to panic or work hard (Germans always want to work hard, hahah). I can just lean back and do what I love. I know that everything will be fine. The funny thing is I booked 2 flights to Thailand a couple months ago and we are flying in 2 weeks.”
Have a blast, my friend!!!
