Day 2 of “A Course in Miracles.” I’ve really enjoyed doing these exercises. They may seem a little nonsensical at first, but then I’ll have HUGE moments of clarity throughout the day. Like yesterday, I was at a Soundology Lab at Wanderlust Hollywood (which includes an amazing sound bath full of gongs, bowls, and chimes… which also lent itself to a little light napping; awesome because I’m no longer allowing naps in my Time Management schedules. Hooray for multi tasking!) At the end of the class we did a seven minute chant “Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung.” (which I just realized was Hung instead of the HUM I was saying when I looked it up just now.) You can listen to this beautiful chant HERE . The point is, these words truly didn’t mean anything. I literally had no clue what I was saying (apparently, its about life and stuff) but they made me so calm and full of joy!
I think that’s a good thing. If you give something a positive meaning that works for you, great! Just be observant throughout the day of both the good or bad meanings you make about things. I’m guessing this will eventually culminate in us realizing that our judgements may or may not actually be true, and we’ll finally get control of our ego minds. But, for now, just realize that the things alone really don’t mean anything. Like the toaster I pulled out of my cupboard this morning. Doesn’t mean anything… except that I get to eat some toast and that’s pretty cool. Damn, am I giving meaning to the toaster now?
Here’s Lesson Two of “A Course in Miracles”:
I have given everything I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) all the meaning that it has for me.
And here’s my experience of this!
OK. I promise tomorrow no more cat jokes. Maybe.
If you like this/hate this/want me, for the love of God, to stop the cat videos, please let me know! This course is motivating me to touch base with everyone once a day, but I promise I’ll still do my other articles when I’m so inspired!
And so it.
