A loving gift of freedom to the world
“There’s no such thing as a moment that isn’t rich with treasures.”—Esther Hicks
So, I’m embarking on a road trip tomorrow. My best friend from college flew in and, like Thelma and Louise, we’re heading west.
In a car.
Only thing for sure is a Sarah McLachlan concert at Red Rocks.
The point (maybe an excuse) I’m trying to make is I probably won’t be blogging for awhile. And I know you guys sometimes worry about my temporary disappearances.
But here’s the thing. Computers and road trips don’t really mix. Now as for Brad Pitt?
Anyway, ACIM Lesson 202 (as well as the next 18 days) are a review. Just keep remembering that you’re forever free, that you have a purpose that transcends the world and that whatever you need or want is a simple thought away.
This review doesn’t have a lot of words (thank ya, Jesus). Rather it urges us to relinquish all that clutters up our minds, to give it all up to the Big Cheese.
When that seems too vague, I like to think of Hobson, the hilarious butler who took care of Dudley Moore in the 1981 movie “Arthur.”
Deftly performed by John Gielgud, Hobson loved his irresponsible charge with an open heart, no matter what ridiculous, immature thing he did. All Arthur had to do was ring a little silver bell.
The Course tells me that my own personal Hobson (AKA the Holy Spirit) will always, without fail, be available. Always. Always. Always.
So whenever I notice my mind settling into problem state or forgetting to be grateful or worrying about anything at all, I just stop, think of Hobson and ring the silver bell.
We got this, boos!
