Lesson 77 – My entitlement

‘I am entitled to miracles’

You are entitled to miracles because of what you are. You will receive miracles because of what God is. And you will offer miracles because you are one with God. Again, how simple is salvation! It is merely a statement of your true Identity. It is this that we will celebrate today.

Today we will claim the miracles which are your right, since they belong to you. Today, however, we will also make sure that we will not content ourselves with less.

Begin the longer practice periods by telling yourself quite confidently that you are entitled to miracles. Closing your eyes remind yourself that you are asking only for what is rightfully yours. Miracles do not obey the laws of this world. They merely follow from the laws of God.

Our shorter practice periods will be frequent, and will also be devoted to a reminder of a simple fact. Tell yourself often today:

I am entitled to miracles.

The vigilant among you will realise that there was no blog yesterday. This was not because I didn’t do the lesson, far from it.  It idea was my mantra throughout the day. It was Mother’s Day in England and I had to make a choice between going out for a meal or staying in and finishing editing the novel. I choose the latter. And the miracle was that I did not feel lonely because I remembered a sentence from lesson 76, ‘You really think you are alone unless another body is with you.’ In fact it was one of those joyous moments when I realised I was nearing the completion of something that was soon to be release to the world. Throughout the day I experienced moments of sheer exhilaration.

Novel update: I needed a miracle to complete the editing and I got it. I sent themanuscript off to readers last night (well, forty minutes past midnight). It was a most amazing feeling, one the writers among you will recognise. No celebratory glass of bubbly, as I’m still on the wagon, but a huge sense of relief, and an even bigger bunch of flowers from son and husband. Start to end of first of draft in 76 days. That’s a miracle for me!!!
