A call for love and healing

 Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes. ACIM

I have been reading A Course in Miracles for a few years (yes a few years, its a biggggggg boook!!) and many times I go back to the part which says "Some of the ideas the workbook presents you will find hard to believe, and others may seem to be quite startling. This does not matter. You are merely asked to apply the ideas as you are directed to do. You are not asked to judge them at all. You are asked only to use them. It is their use that will give them meaning to you, and will show you that they are true"  

I went to a meeting last night and there were some politicians there talking and talking and talking! As I sat there I started to become cynical then it hit me, remember what you read this morning in ACIM.  Which basically says, people who act in ways which are unloving including lying, cheating, you name it, are really in a place where they require love and healing and it is up to the person on the other side of it to decide what their response to a call for love and healing would be. And that response can be from afar! So I decided right there, ok let me try this, let me look at the talk, the behaviour as a call for love and healing and respond accordingly! I tell you, resistance is tiring, I surrendered to it and was able to listen in a whole other engaged and aware state!  With even a bot of compassion! 

Made me think about how many times I looked upon a call for love or healing and thought of it as an attack! Made me think about how many times I put out a call for love and healing as well. Made me think about how much more pleasant it was to listen with an open mind rather than complaining and being cynical. A whole lotta thinking went on!
