Maybe it is left over monastic training on contemplation, but I often wish I could focus on one thought and go deeper into God through it. Today, reading the Manual for Teachers, A Course in Miracles, I got this thought:
"Holy are you, eternal, free and whole, at peace forever in the Heart of God."
I totally see how if I think that of everybody and everything, then the illusion of this world ends. And, the teacher of God is not asked to be perfect, merely willing to follow the Teacher. This is salvation and it is appropriate for Easter.
Now, off to the park for a few miles.
