A soundtrack for our lives
I adore this book. This is A Course In Miracles for, well, everyone. This finally makes ACIM all make sense for me. On a live-your-life-daily level.
The how-to. In specifics. With all my human-ness, included.
For example, Pam Grout has connected songs to some of the lessons. Reviewing that nothing is as it appears, we can play James Brown’s “I Feel Good” either in our head or out from a speaker. We can be reminded that true reality presents a world of peace, safety, and joy, through Meghan Trainor’s “Better When I’m Dancing.” We celebrate that we are made of light, and supersonic light at that, through Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” And of course, Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World” helps us to see what is real.
If you want to connect with and learn the amazing lessons, go get the book. In the meantime, just listen to the songs. I’ve curated her connections and made a playlist to share. Just click the Spotify image to take you to it there. Or, play it in YouTube, below.
I recommend making this the new audio playlist of your day. It will upgrade the mental playlist of your life.
Now excuse me, I’ve got to go dance through my day.
PS — I don’t get paid to promote this book or an author. It’s just really all that awesome!
