Day 57 Awakening Grace and Miracles - My Personal Journey with A Course In Miracles

Hello, beauty,

How are you this day?

It is a grey wet day here in the Highlands, there is something comforting about being tucked up cosily in our cottage, looking out at the world and drinking a large mug of coffee.

I went out for a walk earlier than usual today, as I have a full teaching day ahead of me into the evening.

It felt wonderful to be wrapped up snuggly and feel the elements wildly around me, to be immersed in nature in all of her forms, with the sea crashing its waves upon the shore, the flowers hiding their pretty faces, and the wind whipping at my hair as I moved swiftly along the shore and up into the woods.

It is quite something to feel a part of that which is in constant motion, a process of change and to experience that through all senses, perceptions and emotions and through somatic bodily movement.

Have you been outside for a walk today, to feel the elements upon your skin and a part of our vast expansive universe?

I have a one to one session scheduled in with a beautiful student and soul friend, who is also a lovely yoga teacher, I shall be sharing with her my knowledge, experience and practises related to the psoas. After that I shall be working with another student who is in her final days of training, she will qualify on Saturday.

I find these transition times so exciting and tinged with sadness, too. I love seeing my students flourish and head out into the world with all they have learned, as they are inspired to share their passion with others.

It is also a period of adjustment for us both, particularly when I have been leading the training, which I mostly do, on a one to one basis, as we develop powerful bonds and connections, it is a deep and transformational journey together.

My work is to serve these students, as best as I can, by sharing with them the programme, tools, practices, theories, philosophy and experience I have gathered through many years of personal practise, study, teaching and integration that I have embodied.

And then let them go, out into the wilds of their own journey, knowing that we both, because of our time together, will always be linked across the span of time and energy and that we are both different on some level for the deep sharing and experiences we had together.

It is such an incredible, potent and beautiful process, a privilege and a joy, and sometimes incredibly challenging!

I personally learn so much during these trainings, as we explore yoga in all its’ forms together by interacting with one another and the study material.

As we come to the end of this training, for me it is tinged with the awareness of the completion process, a life, death and rebirth all wrapped up in one, for both of us. There is also, for me, great excitement to be able to guide and nurture and watch the unfolding of the students onwards journey.

It is magic.

And finally, to round of my day of teaching, I have a yoga session scheduled with my nephew. I am loving connecting with him through yoga and togetherness every couple of days online.

The lesson today, lesson 57, from A Course in Miracles is also a review of the past 50 lessons.

It spells out these ideas for us:

I am not the victim of the world I see.

“I would give up my insane wishes and walk into the sunlight at last.”

- A Course in Miracles

I have invented the world I see.

“I made up the prison in which I see myself.”

- A Course in Miracles

There is another way of looking at the world.

“I would look upon the world as it is, and see it as a place where the Son of God finds his freedom.”

- A Course in Miracles

I could see peace instead of this.

“And I will perceive that peace also abides in the hearts of all who share this place with me.”
