A Course in Miracles Experiment (by Pam Grout) Day 86

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”- The Red Queen, in “Alice Through the Looking-Glass”, by Lewis Carroll.

Practice this today!

We get so conditioned to believe in society’s “norms” that sometimes we forget they are just the product of our minds.

Our ancestors spent time finding food, building shelters, and taking general care of each other.  They mostly had plenty of time for other pursuits, though, including making art and caring for animals.  The biggest difference that strikes me, though, is our sense that we don’t have time to spend just hanging out with our friends, our family, or our kids.  They did.  Why don’t we?

Today I’d like you to take half an hour to imagine something impossible.

Maybe it’s having that time for relationships every day.

Maybe it’s having the space for your art or creative enterprise.

Maybe it’s being able to support yourself by doing your art.

Maybe it’s having a million dollars in the bank.

Whatever it is, set your timer and really make the effort to experience what that will be like.

What exactly will you do with your friends?  Do you like to see the newest movies, go to the best restaurants, dance all night?

What will you do with your kids?  Take them to those cool museums or National Parks you’ve never had time for?  Go to the beach, the mountains, the desert?

If it’s your creative space, draw up plans, and start figuring out on paper exactly what sort of shelving you’ll need, how you’ll set up the lighting, and how you’ll organize your supplies.

Whatever YOUR impossible dream is, spend time each day living that dream.  Even if you only have a couple of minutes!

Every time you open your senses to the world of miracles, the world that’s out there that we can’t see but that we CAN experience, the closer that miraculous world moves to you.

So make it a priority to draw that world into your sphere.

Quantum physics tells us that distance is an illusion.  It also reminds us that anything we observe is changed by the act of observation.  

Put your untapped potential for making miracles happen to work today.  Because the reality you experience is controlled only by your mind.
