Lesson 294

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

What are your body’s special talents? What are you great at doing?

What if Love is calling you to do more of that?

Please, do!

Lesson 292

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

You are holding up a thought in between you and your happiness. Why grasp it so thight and grind your teeth, when you could loosen the grip and let it float away?

I know that isn’t easy to do, but that’s just the ego imagining it more complex than it truly is.

8. What is the real world?

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Haha! Sometimes ACIM does this to me as I’ve heard it does to so many others too. Just not wanting to hear what it says, sounds too good to be true.

Lesson 290

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

“My present happiness is all I see.”

This sentence alone makes you wonder what is it that I am looking at right now. If it’s not happiness, then what if happiness is there nevertheless?

Try to find that little glimmering spot that leads you to see it, because your happiness is in your present moment. Available at all times.

The ninth Mira(cle)Doodle Story is out!


– A Story of How Forgiveness Starts & Grievances Vanish –

Mira(cle)Doodle Stories weave together insights from A Course in Miracles in a joyful, uncomplicated way. The obscure concepts of the course are turned into whimsy and fun by elinap! 

Ego loves to try to help out. Here he is rolling Mira’s complaints into a ball of yarn. 

What will he do with it? 

In this story of ten doodles Mira admires her ego’s work, but eventually gets overwhelmed by it and decides to change things around.

This story is inspired by A Course in Miracles Workbook lessons 68, 72, 73, 84, 86, 256 and 289.
:: This booklet is available for $5 tiers and above. ::

Lesson 287

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Ah, we are free to choose. And most of the time it seems like we keep running after all the other gifts and prizes than what is there right next to us, or rather deep within.


That’s what we are after, but that’s what we won’t find until we stop to see it.

Lesson 285

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Indeed, if I just asked for joy and happiness and left all doubt away?

What if only happy thoughts would then come to me?

Lesson 279

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

When I take a closer look of the chains, or the bars of my imagined prison cell, I can see that they were weaved by the ego from threads of fear, so long time ago and so insidiously that I’ve forgotten where they even came from. But that’s not important, what’s more important is to look around and see that there’s a way out right now, in this moment. Peace!

This song has been one of my favorites when I’ve wanted to get some support for ending the waiting… What Are You Waiting For? (Link to You Tube)

Lesson 273

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

You can try to run, but you can’t hide – The gift you’ve got is there for you at any time like it was pinned to your dress like a safety reflector.
So stop so you can see it (and unwrap it, isn’t that the funniest part of receiving gifts!)
Peace is yours.

The eighth Mira(cle)Doodle Story is out!


– What to Do With a Mind That Races around Like a Wild Horse Seeking for Peace –

Some call it a monkey mind, but I think of it as a horse. Typically it’s a pretty wild one too! In this story Mira is trying to control her mind, and fails at it big time.

Then she rises from the ground, dusts off her dress and tries something different…

What she does makes her mind relax and what a relaxed mind does is that instead for seeking for peace, it brings more and more peace to her. Ahhhhh!

This story is inspired by A Course in Miracles Workbook lessons 96, 97, 135, 199 and 236.
:: This booklet is available for $5 tiers and above. ::

Lesson 268

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Somehow today’s lesson hits a wonderfully relieving nerve for me. “Let all things be exactly as they are.” 

That is so powerful! If even for just one day I let go of all my assumptions, refused to analyze and solve problems and threw out all the costumes I dress my world up with. 

What if I filled my day with curious wonder instead, and looked at everything as they are – Love?

Lesson 267

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

”Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength.” (ACIMW.PII.267.1:5)

So I breathe in strength, I breathe out peace. All day long.

I love these rhythms!

Lesson 258

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

I wonder how much do we miss when we keep keeping ourselves so small, going after the goals that are seemingly so extremely important to us!?! 

But training to overlook these senseless aims is the point here. To remember that the sun always shines, no matter what the weather is. Keeping the faith, remembering love. 

Going for the real deal!

Lesson 252

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

If you were about to see the truth of who you truly are with a drumroll, how would you feel? Giddy with excitement like Mira is?

Have you already found out who you truly are in essence?

Lesson 250

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Chuck away all illusions, and see how beautiful you truly are!

Today I felt so relieved to read the lesson, starting with feeling utterly limited, in lack and oh so just not fitting in anywhere I went. A sigh of relief came as I read the lesson, and again was reminded of this simple truth.

Oh wow, how many times do we need to be reminded! For a whole year, every day, multiple times a day!!!

Lesson 249

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

I sketched this in my study journal in early 2015 when I studied this lesson last time. I was just about to commit to doodle daily for the whole year, I had already done it for 22 days that year. It was around this point when I started to believe in myself, in my art, and in abundance, endless giving and sharing, that this world will be about once forgiven.

Taking this idea in my heart made my year unfold in miraculous ways all year long!

Lesson 248

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Haha! Yeah, you got me again!

What is the best use of your time in this lifetime?

Becoming more of yourself, or letting illusions define you?

Lesson 245

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Today my mantra was “Your peace is within me, your peace surrounds me”.

…And I felt it, people felt it. This changed the energy in different situations all through the day.

Lesson 243

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

AH, and again I got caught.. I’ve been tense and judgmental. And all this time that I’ve been pointing my finger at things, there has been this little one hanging patiently on my arm and whispering loving words to me.

Phew, it’s time to relax!

3. What is the World?

A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II

Okay, so now we are getting into business! If the past lessons have left you wondering why you then are here, when you are love and never even left the source – This is it!

When the light is bright in you, you can lead the way, and make everything easier for everyone. The world will follow.

It’s okay to shine!
