The two words to avoid whenever possible
“Let go all the trivial things that churn and bubble on the surface of your mind.”—A Course in Miracles
I’ve talked about the most dangerous four-letter word in the English language. And I’ve shared the two magic words I use when I’m feeling off.
Today I’d like to share two words that, spoken together, tend to put a curse on all that’s possible.
These words sound innocuous enough. But when we say them and/or believe them, we slam shut the door of further investigation. We put an arm lock on the field of infinite potentiality.
The words are “I know……”
These two words are sneaky, because isn’t that what we’re sent to school for? Isn’t that what we spend our lives trying to accomplish? Aren’t we supposed to know.
But here’s what’s critical to remember. There are more sides to every story.
When “I know,” I basically put this unbelievably powerful force into a tiny box.
When I’m convinced and therefore attached to such stories as “I’m just not good at______________(insert your own personal nightmare)” or “The world is skidding to disaster” or “So and so is such an a-hole,” I’ve basically thwarted the field of infinite potentiality in its hell-raising-anything-goes tracks.
I’ve basically decided that this is as good as its going to get.
ACIM Lesson 47 (God is the strength in which I trust) asks me not to put the F.P. in handcuffs. It tells me that whatever “I know” pales in comparison to what’s really possible.
So today, I’m overjoyed to admit that I’m not nearly as smart as Infinite Intelligence and I gladly bow to all the really groovy things it has in store for me.
To summarize: Yo universe, bring it!!!
