Spiritual Experiences and how they affect our lives:

One of my friends, a well-known one on the Internet Scene, just sent me this observation:

I had a cool experience this morning. I was out side drinking my coffee and I was watching the sun rise and the thought came to me that this world will continue, the plants will thrive the birds will sing etc... no matter what problems I choose to create no matter what labels good or bad I choose to put on things. I thought that was pretty cool. Then I spent over 2 hours on the phone with the IRS and had basically a spiritual experience with the woman on the other end of the phone. It is amazing how kindness can be transmitted to others to help them

forgiveness helps too

js: And I agree! Forgiveness, kindness, not judging the other person on the other end of a call, or in direct contact, really does lead to peace. And that's what A Course in Miracles teaches you! The way to change the world is to change your mind about it. And forgive all the (apparent) others. They are only doing their jobs, or just having their fun!

And then I got another reply from my friend:

Thanks john. The coolest thing is to realize that for so many years I walked through this world asleep to these things not realizing the impact that my thoughts and actions have on others. To see the difference is really amazing for BTW at the end of the call to the IRS she wasn’t able to solve my problem. They lost my payment from last year somewhere... but the lady thanked me for having such a beautiful personality. It was pretty heart warming for me. Before I called though I heard you saying forgive them.

js: Now I won’t post his name here, or identity, but his phone number is 985-555-2512.
