Let Love teach you what You are.
Yes Eric, it's all opportunity. All appearance of challenges are setup for the miracle... development of trust section in Teachers Manual is a section I've returned to over and over again. Everything falls into place. I join with you in love and light.
Thank you for sharing with us Mike. LOL... well put... "It's at those times that I think that plodding through a 1300 page book that denies everything I really believe about myself deep down (like thinking I'm a body, special, etc)....just might be worth it." It does take great willingness to question everything you ever believed...as Jesus tells us were this Course not so heavily reinforced with God's Help (Holy Spirit) responding to our slightest willingness, it would be hard indeed.
