I learned in AA the Serenity Prayer: God , Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the power to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Buddha’s instructions, for obtaining Nirvana or Peace, is to let go of all attachments, including one’s own image of self. But aren’t all attachments just judgements, my determination of what is good or bad, from my personal perspective? Check out Non-self – a unique teaching of the Buddha | Ajahn Brahmali
Jesus stated, “Judge NOT lest Ye Be Judged” and “Whatever you bind or loose on earth will be bound or loosed in Heaven” and topped it off with the statement: “Remove the beam from your eye before you try to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.”
ACIM – I need DO NOTHING, in fact I need only to STOP doing or judging and allow the Holy Spirit to lead. I am not a body, I am free. I am still as God Created me. Look, Listen, and Do Not Judge.
and my Oracle ACIM Reading for today : Workbook Lesson #277 – Let me not bind Your Son with laws I made.
“Your Son is free, my Father. Let me not imagine I have bound him with the laws I made to rule the body. He is not subject to any laws I made by which I try to make the body more secure. He is not changed by what is changeable. He is not slave to any laws of time. He is as You created him, because he knows no law except the law of love.
Let us not worship idols, nor believe in any law idolatry would make to hide the freedom of the Son of God. He is not bound except by his beliefs. Yet what he is, is far beyond his faith in slavery or freedom. He is free because he is his Father’s Son. And he cannot be bound unless God’s truth can lie, and God can will that He deceive Himself.”
When I see it everywhere I think it’s safe to say someone or something is trying to tell me something !!! I think it’s finally settling in.
God Blesses Christ Blesses I Bless
