Update Ourselves

I have to say, I’m not a fan of all the updates that come with the Apple products.  I know they are probably universal and there are updates for all electronic devices, but since I have Apple products, I notice it the most.

As my school year comes to an end, and I finally get the summer to recoup from a long year of hard work, I am starting to feel like I am in huge need one of these updates.  I need to plug into some new energy and let my body just re-energize for a while.

I am ready for a new and improved version of myself.  I’m ready to put some energy into me.  I want to sit back all summer and read books, listen to videos and educate myself as much as I can on anything spiritual and how to become all that I was created to be.  I’m ready for an update.  If only it was as easy as updating your electronic device!

How many of us let ordinary life pass us by and never take time for ourselves.  To better ourselves?  To love ourselves!  To spend alone time with ourselves so that we can see life through the eyes of love and peace and not exhaustion, anger, bitterness or hate.  If a phone or electronic device takes time to make itself better, I’m hoping that as humans, and the top of the intellectual chain, we should take time for ourselves to make ourselves better.  But how many of us don’t?  How many of us just continue through life as we are. We might even have the same hair style, or wear the same styles that we did in high school.  But here we are.  Years later, and we haven’t changed a bit.

As much as I am not a fan of change, I realize it is a part of our lives on this planet.  We have come here to become better people.  To get our updates and to become a better version than we were before.  Just like Apple products.  We need to update ourselves and find why we were put in this world.

That’s what I love about A Course in Miracles.  It is a book perfectly formatted to actually update your brain.  Your life.  Through its teachings you can become a better version of yourself.

For those who have never heard about this book, A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system.  Its focus is on universal love and peace, by reprogramming this thought system of guilt that has been inbred into us from infancy.  Its target is forgiving others and ourselves.  The Course teaches us how to heal relationships and making them holy, especially within ourselves.  The best part for me is, A Course in Miracles is just a type of universal spiritual teaching and not a religion.  It just focuses on making you a newer improved version of yourself.

I love this quote from this beloved text, “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.”  It is time that we all finally let our updates happen.  Let the new version of you download.  Take time to start seeing the world differently.  You can’t change the world, but you can change how you perceive it.  A Course in Miracles will help you with your update.  It has a 365 day reprogramming system for your brain.  You just have to make the effort to plug yourself into the book for five to ten minutes every day.  I promise it will be the best time you ever spent on yourself.

As much as we all hate to get the new update notice on our electric devices, we appreciate them after we learn how to function with them.  The same will happen if your take the time to update your thought system to that of love and peace.  Take the time to update yourself this summer.  Make it a summer goal.  Who doesn’t want to become a better version of themselves?
