It is OK.
You are safe.
You can let go.
Life can be easy.
God’s got this handled.

Many of us within the Evolve Community are finding great value in meeting any and all upset with these 5 lines. They seem simple and yet they pack a powerful punch. In this blog post I am inspired to combine each line with a quote from A Course in Miracles.

We create our life experience through our attention. When we look at “a world out there” and call it fearful we are placing our intention on fear.

When instead we practice bringing our attention back to some of these core teachings from A Course in Miracles we can allow each moment to become an opportunity to dissolve the appearance of a fearful world into the Peace that is always available to us.

Before continuing I invite you to take a few moments to tune in to how you are feeling right now. If there is something in your life that is upsetting you let it momentarily rise to the surface of your awareness. Allow it, just for a moment, affect how you are feeling.

Go ahead and taste the upset.

And then come back here and read each line and the corresponding quote from A Course in Miracles slowly. If you are inspired feel free to read each section two or three times before moving onto the next section.

It is OK.

This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate, your rest remains completely undisturbed. Yours is the rest of truth. Appearances cannot intrude on you. You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God. They will not hear another voice but yours, because you gave your voice to God and now you rest in Him and let Him speak through you.  – ACIM Workbook Lesson 109

You are safe.

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind — not necessarily in a place which you recognize as yet — you have remembered God and let His strength take the place of yours. The instant you are willing to do this, there is indeed nothing to fear.  – ACIM Workbook Lesson 47

You can let go.

Father, I give You all my thoughts today.
I would have none of mine. In place of them,
Give me Your Own. I give You all my acts
As well, that I may do Your will instead
Of seeking goals which cannot be obtained
And wasting time in vail imaginings.
Today I come to You. I will step back,
And merely follow You. Be You the Guide
And I the follower, who questions not
The wisdom of the Infinite, nor love
Whose tenderness I cannot comprehend,
But which is yet Your perfect gift to me. 

– ACIM Workbook Lesson 233

Life can be easy.

Your present trust in Him is the defense which promises a future undisturbed, without a trace of sorrow, and with joy which constantly increases, as this life becomes a holy instant, set in time but heeding only immortality. Let no defenses but your present trust direct the future, and this life becomes a meaningful encounter with the truth that only your defenses would conceal.  – ACIM Workbook Lesson 135

God’s got this handled.

And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because e speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.  – ACIM Workbook Lesson 361–365

How are you feeling now? Take a few moments and tune in.
More peaceful? More open? Perhaps, dare I say, happier?

As cool as that is let us take it even a step further. From this more open, happier space, turn your attention back to the story that had been upsetting you before.

Can you find it? How does feel? Is it as upsetting as it was before?

If you are finding any level of upset let it rise for a moment and then go back and read each of the 5 sections above again.

Go ahead and do it now — the rest of this post isn’t going anywhere. ๐Ÿ˜Š

You don’t have to tell me that each run through is neutralizing the upset.

I know it is.

And at a certain point, as you relax into a practice as easy as this one, you will discover that this particular upset has lost all charge — and future upsets will become easier and easier to neutralize.

And it will not require even the minute or so it took you to read all the quotes. Just carry the 5 lines…

It is OK.
You are safe.
You can let go.
Life can be with you.
God’s got this handled.

With you wherever you go and AS SOON AS you notice an upset smile and begin repeating these 5 lines to yourself and watch what happens.

More and more I am discovering that there are easy, simple ways to incorporate the most powerful Spiritual Principles into our day to day Life Experiences. Talking about A Course in Miracles and other Truth teachings is fun. Implementing them into our life is mind-blowingly fun. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Not to mention transformational.

Thank you for investing your time with this post. Thank you for all you are doing to heal your mind and improve your life. For as we are taught in A Course of Miracles (Workbook Lesson 137):

As I am healed I am not healed alone.
And I would bless my brothers, for I would
Be healed with them, as they are healed with me.

So — from my heart to yours — thank you, thank you, thank you. ๐Ÿ˜Š
