I am never upset for the reason, I think.

A Course in Miracles has a lesson a day for a year, supporting the transition from ego and fear-based thinking to thinking thoughts of and from love.

 I was with a friend recently and going on about a pet peeve and found myself getting quite `energised` about it. I then recalled the lesson for the day. “I am not upset for the reason I think I am”. It was like a needle puncturing a balloon deflating the energy as I realised my upset came from another source, yet I had chosen to vent it through my `peeve`!

It reminded me to keep in closer touch with my inner witness. To regularly tune into where I am to more swiftly spot when I am out of alignment, or, of course, be more aware of when my thoughts are `out` of love.

Self-awareness and staying aware of it keeps the inner witness busy!

Loving thinking rocks!!

  1. I absolutely resonate with your experience and the profound lesson you shared from A Course in Miracles. It’s fascinating how we can become so engrossed in our pet peeves and allow them to consume our energy. The realisation that “I am not upset for the reason I think I am” is truly transformative.

    Maintaining a closer connection with our inner witness is indeed crucial. By regularly tuning into our inner state, we become more attuned to our thoughts and emotions, allowing us to swiftly identify when we are out of alignment with love. It’s a practice that requires self-awareness and mindfulness, but the rewards are tremendous.

    Loving thinking truly rocks!

    When we choose thoughts rooted in love, we align ourselves with a higher perspective and invite peace and harmony into our lives. Thank you for sharing your powerful insight and reminding us of the importance of staying connected to our inner witness. May we all continue to cultivate a loving mindset and contribute to a more compassionate world.
