Stop and Really See Yourself

Do you really see yourself? Have you ever thought that you’re going through life like a robot? Reacting to situations without asking what’s inside of you that causes you to react? Maybe working on a job you don’t like because you have to eat and pay debts? Being in a battered relationship without analyzing how you are contributing to make it so, and how can you change to improve it?

And so, the days and years go by and one day you ask yourself, is this all there is? Then you start to wonder, what if what my parents, friends, society taught me, isn’t it? What if there is another way of looking at things? What if …

Once you ask yourself those questions, people, blogs, books, workshops begin to reach you, so you can see new ideas, new ways of being. Even in unpleasant, difficult situations, you can see how those situations have taught you to grow, how they have strengthened you, how, if you look inward, you can see how you contributed to make that situation so.

And in that way, you grow as a human being. Once you realize that you are not a robot, that you have control of your reactions, of your decisions, you are learning that you are something more than that body with which you have identified all life. And so, little by little, you are waking up to the love that you are.

A Course in Miracles, a life changing experience

Let me introduce you the book that changed my life

In 1965, Dr. Helen Schucman, and Dr. Bill Thetford, both psychologists and agnostics, were colleagues at the School of Medicine and Surgery at Columbia University in New York.

One day, Helen began to have a series of psychic experiences. She called Bill and told him that an Inner Voice did not leave her alone saying, “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.” Bill suggested that she take notes and decide the next day if it made sense or not.

Helen did this, and the process lasted seven years. Helen listened, wrote and both transcribed. The dictation was not automatic writing, nor was Helen in a trance. The Voice, which called itself Jesus, could stop while Helen continued her work.  

The manuscript, which is a teaching of spiritual psychology, was called A Course in Miracles (the Course). It is composed of:

  • the Text, which is fundamentally theoretical and exposes the concepts on which the Course’s thought system is based;
  • the Workbook which consists of 365 lessons, the practical application of the theory;
  • and the Teacher’s Manual, written in the form of Q&A, which answers some of the most common questions that students can ask themselves.

The Course’s mission is to help us achieve inner peace. Its goal is to teach us to eliminate the mental blocks that do not allow us to see our true essence, which is love.

The teachings of the Course have been so impressive that it has been translated into almost all the major languages.

Your Thoughts Create Your Life

When you experience anything unpleasant in your life how do you react? Do you blame someone? Do you feel guilty? Have you ever considered why your life is how it is? Did you know that only you can do something to change it?

Quantum physics has shown that if you look through a very powerful microscope, physical matter looks like small universes of atoms and electrons vibrating. If you continue to magnify it, you will eventually see that it is only pure energy.

There are several principles involved:

• The principle of magnetism – Each thing has its own particular magnetic quality. Being electromagnetic energy, this causes thoughts to attract energy that has a similar magnetic quality.

• The principle of radiation, everything that exists emits or radiates energy outwards, according to its vibratory level.

• The principle of attraction states that energy will attract to itself what it throws out. Therefore, what you think will come back to you. If you have negative thoughts you will attract negative energy. The more you think about something, the more you will attract it to you. What you resist persists.

Most thoughts are unconscious. You acquired them from the moment of conception, from your parents, teachers, siblings, religious leaders and society in general. Many times, the thought is so unconscious that you don’t see the relationship between it and your reaction. But you choose your reaction, it doesn’t choose you.

How you react to something depends on your perception. If you want to change your life you have to change your thoughts. You have to choose to see differently. Once you do, you will begin to awaken to the love you are.
