Ask: Why don't I hear God's messages of love?

I was just re-listening to lesson 155…"And now He asks but that you think of Him a while each day, that He may speak to you and tell you of His Love, reminding you how great His trust; how limitless His Love." I was wondering why I don't hear those messages of love, why I think I need and want the love of a "man" (in this case, a particular one) more than the "love of God". "Death" sometimes seems as if it will be the only release from all this emotional agony! Sigh... – MCD
            You read A Course in Miracles so you do hear God’s messages of Love. The Course is a love letter from the Truth (God) in you asking you to remember What you really are. Remember this as you learn how to hear the Teacher of Truth (Holy Spirit) within your mind. You are not comfortless. The Course was scribed by one (Helen Schucman) who was obviously hearing the Teacher of Truth within her mind at the time. Not everyone who picks up the Course is already hearin…

Ask: I feel like I'm never going to "get it"...

I read the lessons for the day. It's breathtaking, yet I feel so far from experiencing what the Course talks about. I feel pain in the body, emotional distress, and obsess about people places and things. When I notice this going on ~ how much of my mental, emotional and physical space it all takes up I feel like I'm just never going to "get it" or be able to keep my mind focused on "God" or not be affected or afflicted by all the things people suffer. I can't really say I've ever experienced a moment's respite from these afflictive thoughts of what happened in the past, what will happen in the future, what I did wrong, what they said, what they meant bla bla bla! …I'm wondering what your days are like? Is your mind clear? What does it all feel like? Or are you just telling yourself certain things? I feel like I have no new thoughts, just recycling the same ole same ole. - MCD
Don’t aim for a perfectly quiet mind. Instead, simply open yours…
