The Problem with "Love"

“Love” is one of those words that I wish was not used in spirituality. We use the word in two ways when discussing human love and only one of them describes the experience of True Love. This leads to confusion as the two ideas become conflated. As humans when we say “I love you” we mean “I like you a lot”, “I enjoy you”, “I enjoy being with you”, “I like how I feel about myself when I am with you”, “I enjoy the role that I play in our relationship”, “I am grateful to you for the role that you…See More

Acceptance

Acceptance is one of those ideas that I see students resisting, largely because they confuse “acceptance” with “embracing” or “liking” or “condoning”. So when I say “Accept that growing your awareness of Truth is a process” or “Accept that your boss is unfair” or “Accept that you have a chronic illness” they think I am suggesting that they try to like or approve of these things. But what I mean by “acceptance” is “acknowledge a situation the way it is without resisting it or judging it”.…See More

Ask: What is the best way to deal with idols?

“I now see clearly my attachment to various false idols - the so-called special relationships - those things of the world that appear as sources of peace but which I know intellectually, intuitively, and through endless disappointing experience can never deliver lasting peace. Nevertheless, they feel so real and appealing as I covet and pursue them on a daily basis. As bright as these golden calves seem to be, worshiping them is fraught with fear, and a gnawing sense of lack. Obsessing over…See More

Safety in Defenselessness

 “In my defenselessness my safety lies.” (W-153)             You have two thought systems in your mind. The ego is the thought system that teaches you that you are a self in a body in a world. Because this isn’t true when you identify with the self you experience lack and vulnerability. You spend your time defining and defending the self’s identity in an attempt to undo your sense of lack and to feel safe.            The “defenselessness” referred to in this lesson is the other thought system…See More

Thanks Elizabeth! I'm glad you're here. Your blog and work is helping me a lot in this process. Recieve loving greetings from Mexico.

Hello Liz, thank you so much for mentoring "the rest of us" learning the new  thought system of ACIM. I am an avid reader of your PLACIM and really enjoyed your podcast on the 4 Habits, not to mention tuning into your archived phone sessions.  As I have mentioned to a couple of other people here on ms.com, I have been reading, re-reading and going through the "practices" in Henry Grayson's book "Mindful Loving." Some of themhave been quite helpful in eliminating the most troublesome ego interruptions that our personal thought systems generate willy-nilly 24x7. 

Anyway, thanks again for accepting my friend request. 

Blessings to you, Liz.
