Subject: Your guidance

Hi there, Star...

My study of the Course and its principles is one of a non-dualistic thought system. There is nothing to "fix" out there in the world, be it famine, war, disease, lack, corrupt governments, etc etc. Whenever there seems to be a problem "out there" it is my responsibility to look inward and ask HS or Jesus to help heal my mind, where the problem/cause really is. Non-duality means to me that there is no bad, good, healthy/sick, rich/poor, masculine/feminine traits, etc. If I keep allowing myself to get caught up in these things, I am not utilizing what the Course is trying to teach me but still in duality where there will always be war, conflict, lack, sickness etc etc. and there goes the Peace I desire. There is a song that states a fact, "Let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me." I do realize that everyone is exactly where they are in the "waking up" process however and as I end this post I suddenly realize I have also become caught in the ego by even registering an opinion, lol.

In a sense, your guidance is correct. All is well.

And... when you go to a restaurant, you place your order -- because that is what is called for. You are hungry. When the order arrives, you facilitate the food's journey to your mouth with your fork.

If you have children, I would imagine that, periodically, you remind them that peace is preferable to war.

Is there a difference, then, in reminding the President; in reminding the world?

When it's time for a holiday, you may choose Hawaii rather than Bali. Why would you do this? Because of your preference (opinion), of course.

I have always been curious as to the rationale behind your interpretation of the course, because a basic course premise is that we are brothers and sisters, and we are one. There is NO difference between feeding a hungry child in Africa and feeding a hungry child in your home. There is NO difference between facilitating peace in your home and facilitating peace in the world.

Thank you, sister, for sharing on this beautiful day.
