Joy To The Girl

Posted on

From time to time, a book falls at your feet and when picked up from the floor of Barnes & Noble, it quite literally drags you to the cash register…sometimes kicking and screaming.    I have often resisted this oh.so. powerful urge (mainly because I am cheap…I confess).  I beg of you…if you are inclined to resist these messages from God (or Source, Buddha, Universe, the freaking Beatles…whoever)…STOP immediately!!  Buy the book!

This “situation” which I will describe in more literal detail in my PS, happened to me last week at Barnes & Noble (or in Lori world…nirvana).  And…on a very tight budget, I heard a little voice in my head say, “Sold!”.  The book and “Barnes and Noble-men” were nice enough to offer an amazing sales price of $12.95.  I love a bargain!!

So…

I know what you are thinking…

What is the book….?

Well, wait for it….close your eyes and hear the melody of your favorite song….and…

It is called “A Course In Miracles”.  It is not credited to any author.  The copyright is listed as :

“Compilation (insert that little copyright do-hickey which I don’t know how to type)2005 by New Christian church of Full Endeavor, Ltd.

I am currently on page 126, but I couldn’t hold out on you guys…I had to share.  Every non-fiction book I read changes me, it’s true…but, this book is simply revelatory!  Sorry to be so “ethereal” and all; but, I really mean it..DAMMIT!!  As you can see, it didn’t change my trademark irreverence.

So, I am about to shut this down for today, but, I want to talk about this book more.  I am going to blog about it for the foreseeable (thanks SpellCheck…didn’t know it had the ‘e’ behind the ‘r’) future; because:

  1. I can (and you can’t stop me)
  2. It’s freaking awesome….I mean it!!
  3. Because I love YOU and you will only benefit from this beautiful text
  4. The “Holy Spirit” made me do it…

K?  So, sorry I have been away for so long.  I wrote a book called “Building Better Believers: The How-To Parenting Guide To Raising Entrepreneurs, Innovators, and Visionaries”.  I obsessed over it…to put it mildly.  I completely detest multitasking; because God granted me with a one-track mind and I finally stopped fighting it.  Enough said?

Don’t misinterpret my absence for lack of love, laughter or words (not that you would..haha)…just a temporary shift in focus of which there will be more to come in the future.  Thanks for reading…tell a friend and leave a comment, will you?

Much Love and Laughter,

Lori

(PS)  I heard about the book from another book called “Spirit Junkie” by Gabrielle Bernstein (which I highly recommend).  Also, Marianne Williamson is a Course in Miracles interpreter.  I just love the visual image of the book dragging me better…don’t you?

(PPS)  If you want to buy MY book, which will also change your life…you can do it right here.  Also, close2bliss will be moving soon to my new website which is under construction (believersvillage.com).  I’ll be sure to send you the details when the move occurs..until then…See ya!!!!

  2. Lori,

    I read A Course in Miracles. It is a life changing book. I will spend the rest of my life working on losing my ego.

  3. Please also get and read 1) Disappearance of the Universe, and 2) Your Immortal Reality. I have working away at A Course in Miracles for something like 15 years, but in a matter a short time reading these books, I now have a framework for understanding it’s essence and a simple, powerful practice that I use every day.

    • Scott, that is amazing. I just read both of those books over the last months and currently reading the new Gary Renard book “Love Has Forgotten No One”. I totally agree…these books really helped my ACIM studies! Keep choosing love my friend and thank you!
