“I have given everything I see in this room all the meaning that is has for me.” – A Course In Miracles: Lesson 2
Journal, April 17, 2012 • A fitting lesson to dowse in the Course, as I look around me. From room to room, I see boxes stacked wherever there is a spare space. Some holding 36 years of marriage. Some holding the last 18 years of reconciliation.
I give them the meaning that they have. The objects inside are clueless to the purpose assigned to them. On a good day, they speak to relief and gratitude for the honesty expressed that made it necessary to pack them up. On a bad day, they speak to surprises and sideswipes. If I am the meaning-maker, which meaning shall I embrace today?
Yesterday, I made my first serious “pass” through the divorce papers while my husband packed up his “pieces” of the kitchen that was our kitchen – soon to be my kitchen. I am somewhat in awe as this process of acceptance and forgiveness unfolds. And I am grateful that I am journaling through this – writing under fire as it were – and know that I am benefiting exponentially.
Exponentially? Really? How do I know?
We are always choosing stories, are we not? Well then …
that’s my story and I am sticking to it!
Any other meaning-makers out there with stories to tell? What are YOU embracing today? This is the place to share!
The Messy Room and my Facebook Page are two ways that I share the “HOW” of it!
You CAN get here from there!
