Symbols are stand-ins for that “which is,” or that which we think exists. Spiritually speaking, the ego is a symbol for that part of our mind that constantly judges, scorns, and sends message for us to verbally and/or physically attack ourselves or another. The ego is never satisfied. It simply wants to take over more and more of our mind and haul us into the cave of darkness. Spiritually speaking.
As an ordained ministerial counselor, I am not a psychotherapist. Nor do I attempt to psychoanalyze those who seek healing. I leave that to the expertise of my psychology and psychiatry colleagues.
What do I do? I seek to have you identify that part of your spiritual self in need of healing. And, you do that by recognizing that you (and the rest of us!) either listen to ego’s rants or you seek to feel and hear the Love of Spirit over the cacophony of falsities.
The inner child is simply a symbol for that part of our spirit-Self that is joyful, playful, loving and carefree…
…or a part of our ego that is hurting, crying, lashing out, in need of comfort; calling out for love.
Through a series of discussions and activities, you will be able to get in touch with that “little one within” who has been crying out for love. You will also learn how to, first remember and then apply, the love and comfort offered by your “parent within”…
…and then remember and experience the Love and Peace of Spirit, the ultimate “parent within.”
Even when I was young, I felt a calling to serve in a spiritual capacity. As a child, I could never put it into words. From the core of my being, I felt the Light within me growing strong yet didn’t fully understand this Love that asked to be shared and joined with others.
About five years ago I was drawn to the spiritual path that answered those stirrings. A Course in Miracles is an educational program in spiritual development. The Course helps us to understand that we are living in one of two ways: either we are calling out for love because we are living in fear, or we are living in joy and extending love to others. It’s all a choice.
I have answered the Call by furthering my insights into the full meaning of the Course and by becoming an ordained minister. Through the Pathways of Light Spiritual College, I continue to actively study the application of the principles of the Course in greater depth. I am awakening to my true Self and to removing the blocks to love’s awareness. Through prayer, meditation and by listening to my Inner Wisdom, I am finding the peace and joy that God has willed to to me so that I may share it with others.
The term, miracle, as used in the Course seems to cause confusion to many. If you think of the words love, peace or joy it may make more sense: A Course in Love/Peace/Joy! Who wouldn’t want to pursue that goal? By remembering the love within yourself and others and by making the choice to look past perceived errors, you and others experience love, peace, joy and harmony. Voila, the miracle!
