“like smearing my ears with honey” ~ Ergo Maas, YouTube commentator

I choose to see my brother’s sinlessness. . . . In him I find my Self.
Forgiveness lets me know that minds are joined.

(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lessons 335 & 336)

We are being called. Let us drift down together on the current of acceptance. When we allow the ripples of the river—when we choose to cloak our minds in forgiveness—we rejoin the heavenly waters of Oneness.


There is no other, for there is nothing else.

(ACIM Urtext, Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice. P 4 B 5)

With Love and Light,
Mira Carroll

Flower Duet lyrics translation:

Thick dome of jasmine,
Under the dense canopy where the white jasmine,

Blends with the rose,
That blends with the rose,

Bank in bloom, fresh morning,
On the flowering bank, laughing in the morning,

Call us together.
Come, let us drift down together.

Ah! Let’s glide along
Let us gently glide along; For its enchanting flow

The fleeing current;
Let us follow the fleeing current;

On the rippling surface,
On the rippling surface,

With a nonchalant hand,
With a nonchalant hand,

Let’s go to the shore,
Come, let’s go to the shore

Where the bird sings,
Where the spring sleeps.

the bird, the bird sings.
And the bird, the bird sings.

Thick dome, white jasmine,
Under the dense canopy, Under the white jasmine,

Call us together!
Ah! Let’s drift down together!

But, an eerie feeling of distress
overcomes me.
When my father goes into their damned city
I tremble, I tremble with fright!

In order for him to be protected by Ganesh
To the pond where joyfully play
The snow-winged swans
Let us pick blue lotuses.

Yes, near the swans with wings of snow,
And pick blue lotuses.

Thick dome of jasmine
Under the dense canopy where the white jasmine. . .
Together call us!
Ah! Let’s drift down together!

  1. […] I’ve been following the unfolding of the most recent Ebola epidemic centered in West Africa with the persistent sense that Ebola is a teacher of oneness. A harsh teacher, to be sure. But what greater lesson would be heard by a student of A Course in Miracles about a virulent killer that refuses to be contained? The contagious disease Ebola knows no boundaries. Ebola plays dirty with boundaries of personal protective equipment. Ebola scoffs at political borders, ocean-wide continental separations and humanly-defined roles. Thanks to Ebola, the caregiver becomes the patient, the grief-stricken die, and those who wash, dress and bury the dead return to the earth themselves with distressing speed in the trail of yet another violent eruption of sickness.  Anything so eager to be shared must come with a lesson about oneness.
