“The way will open if you believe it’s possible.”—A Course in Miracles
You might have heard. The Kansas City Chiefs won the Superbowl last weekend. It was head coach Andy Reid’s 222nd professional win and it happened on 2/2/20.
Needless to say, it was highly significant for me. And for the 222 Foundation that honors the brilliant, beautiful Tasman McKay Grout. The three amazing projects (out of 100 applications) we’ve chosen to fund this year will be announced on February 22.
In the meantime, I wanted to share something I learned about Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, that applies to today’s Course in Miracles lesson.
In the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs were down ten points with less than nine minutes to go, Mahomes was chanting to each of his teammates, “We got this, baby.”
Despite what the scoreboard said, despite two earlier interceptions, despite the fact the game was nearly over, Mahomes was convinced, “We got this, baby!”
That’s classic ACIM Lesson 41 that tells us to quit inventing cures for made-up problems. It advises us to, instead, question the reality of the problem.
And that’s exactly what Patrick Mahomes did last Sunday. So what if they were down 10 points? Who cares there are only eight minutes left?
Those “facts” are only a “problem” if he saw them as a problem. He did not. In a short eight minutes, the Chiefs made a flurry of three touchdowns, won the Superbowl and proved the Course that says, “The way will open if you believe it’s possible.”
So today, instead of coming up with a solution for whatever “problem” appears to plague you, remember Patrick Mahomes. Remember the Course in Miracles that teaches us to “give up our allegiance to problems.” We can make an attempt this very day to go past the cloud of insane thoughts and reach the light beyond.
