As you know, we celebrated Labor Day on Monday.
What does the word labor mean to you? I always think of birthing babies, and images of hard work, such as shoveling dirt and moving mountains.
Right now, as I write this, and as you read this, we are creating our day. Will there be conflict and struggle, or will we slide through in ease and grace? Will whatever we are praying for manifest for us in the twinkling of an eye, or do we assign degrees of difficulty? (The Universe can provide a parking place without breaking a sweat, but that “ordinary miracle” of an extra $1,000 is gonna be a major project.) A Course in Miracles reminds us that there is no degree of difficulty in miracles, with the miracle being any answered prayer (or manifestation or demonstration), but do we really believe that?
If you were with me on Sunday, you know that our book for September will be Let It Be Easy by Tolly Burkan. Each person at the service received four colored index cards, with the following assignment:
- Write the words Let It Be Easy on the colored index cards, and post them in prominent places
- Notice how you make things difficult by telling yourself certain activities are hard
- Think about how you can change that perception
- Notice the wisdom you receive, from within and without
- Re-mind yourself that compared to childbirth, this task is a piece of cake
- Let the cards re-mind you that you have the ability to experience things in a different mode than you have in the past.
I invite you to join me in this heart and mind opening project. How will things be different today, and tomorrow, if you let it be easy?
