How are you today?
I am sat cosily indoors today as we have showers of rain and hailstone, with intermittent bursts of sunshine.
I have had a long walk through the forest, along the coast and along some farm tracks, it was beautiful, wild and invigorating.
And now, here I sit, with you, with a crisp white page and words tumbling through my fingertips. The pot is boiling on the stove, the scent of lavender and lemon oils diffusing, and a cat sat on the window ledge, looking in at me curiously, as I look out at it.
I have been quite wordy in my blogs of late, so I feel called to keep this short and sweet!
It is day 53, of my self-studying A Course in Miracles, lesson 53 is a review of the previous 50 lessons, I find that it is so good to have time to consolidate learnings as I study.
Time to reflect and, see if I truly understood something, of course, we only understand to the degree our own filters allow us, but the process of the Course is to clear any false perceptions.
Whenever we have a chance to return to an area of study, especially philosophy and Spiritual Law, I find the level of understanding is deeper and clearer over time.
Do you find this too?
Often my yoga teacher training students will say to me that when they pick up their study manuals a year or more after they qualify, that they read things they have no recollection of, or their understanding is greater because the teachings have become embodied and felt into over the course of time.
We are only ever able to fully take on board what we are able and open to, at a given moment in time, due to our own filters, readiness, and experience.
Studying something complex like metaphysics or yoga philosophy is a beautiful process of learning, releasing, clearing and gathering a deep knowledge and level of comprehension.
These are not areas that we take a course and are done, it is lifetime learning, and most importantly lifetime living of the principles.
“Ask for light and learn that you are light.”
