This morning, my Course in Miracles lesson was number 151: "All things are echoes of the Voice for God."
And as the culmination of years of prayer and meditation, I had this astounding thought: All the others are my spiritual companions.
Now this thought is a healed thought. It is a thought the Voice for God could have thought with me. The Voice for God honors Christ (the Christ within all others). And I see the love beyond the hate. And so I experienced resurrection: life beyond this world.
And so I went to Brummerhop park and jog walked 50 laps. It is a small park so that is only 18.5 miles. It is a good place to meditate.
The first 13.1 miles were part of a virtual half marathon. Silly me, I signed up on-line for what I thought was a virtual triple race. I liked the idea of earning a medal for three half marathons in 3 days, my private Easter triple. But the RD e-mailed me and said I'd need to enter 2 more times and send her another $70 to get "credit" for 3 races. At which point I became cheap and annoyed.
So, one medal is in the mail. I have been assigned a number. The result of today will be recorded. But I still plan to do miles tomorrow.
Because miles are what I do. I do spiritual study the first hour of the day; and then meditate on the day's lesson while I do miles. Tomorrow however, I think I'll go to the Seabrook trails. Then I'll get a view of Galveston Bay. I have come to rather like that. The park there will be full of Mexicans camping for Easter weekend. I find myself happy with that idea.
Now, I feel a bit like my biceps need some work. So, upstairs I go.
Here is the medal for my virtual race. I like it.
