I learned after long soul-searching that my interest in the status of a job (and all that goes with that false value), and my dedication to having an academic career mean that I am trying to prove something to somebody that doesn’t need proving. 

“Going into work matters too much to you” was the message of a particularly symbolic and insightful dream.

For some reason I knew I needed to write a book.  And I did—one for my field of library science.  Did I need the discipline or did I need the credential?  Or did I need both? 

My motive is hard to fathom.

I intend "Miracles Each Day" to offer inspiration and insight into A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, The Way of Mastery, Choose Only Love, Mirari, and similar readings.

  1. I hear u, sister.  Beautiful contemplation with an open Heart; willingness to question and investigate habitual firing of egoic mental-emotional patterning; Gorgeous Awareness stabilizing; Presence deepening; old conditioned patterns being clearly seen through and dissolving.  Intellect sitting in service to revelation, ready to communicate through pointing towards direct experience; full cooperation with Awakening; identificationnwith the human dream loosening; Awakening Consciousness unfolding.

    Who is the “i” which has motive, needs discipline, wants credential, cannot fathom?

    Who sees this? 

    What is Here, Now, need-less, want-less, clear, Knowing, word-less?

    1. Good observation. These words I am posting now were written in the nineties, and I hope that I have made more progress in the way you suggest than I had at that time. Love, Celia
