Have a Wonderful Week

I was recently asked how to deal with someone who could really use the message of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) but didn’t seem to want to hear it.
My short answer: If someone doesn’t want to hear a message, they won’t hear it.
If someone is so intent on listening to the babble of egoic voices inside their head, they cannot hear the whispers of God. In Alcoholics Anonymous we know that only you can refer to yourself as an alcoholic. Only you can make the decision that you are willing to try a new way of living without alcohol…[or drugs, or sugar, or sex, or ego-centered drama, or religion, or gambling, or shopping, etc.] All we can do is be there whenever they really do “hit bottom,” while praying that they make it back alive.
But, sometimes they don’t make it. Sometimes the pure-hearted prince does not save the princess. Sometimes the frog, after being kissed, remains a frog.
A deeper question is to ask about your motive in trying [perhaps compulsively?] to help “save” someone who doesn’t want to be “saved.” Just maybe, that person who appears not to want your help is there to allow the Holy Spirit to help you… if you ask Him. Just maybe. .….
All your issues and perceived problems do not exist “out there.” They all exist in that small universe that lives between your ears.
I have to be out of town over the weekend, which explains the terseness of this message.
Although these messages are mostly for me, thanks for listening. As always – feel free to forward this message to your friends, family, and those accompanying you on your spiritual journey.
