I am reading a spiritual book, finding many heartfelt ideas there. One thing that it says, though, is that we must learn through pain, pain that arises when subconscious thoughts come up to the conscious mind and get us off center. A Course in Miracles differs, saying that it is not necessary to learn through pain—that rewards are more lasting.
We often, it is true, learn from pain. But I don’t think this way comes from You. You are all happiness, and it is this I would experience today and every day.
I appreciate Your listening to me and giving me Your best ideas.
