I was shocked last year when I met an old school friend. He told me he remembered me as being really ambitious at school – highly motivated and driven to achieve. I replied “ Was I really?” I was a little horrified when the memory of my single minded drive to achieve flooded back into my mind. It all seemed so self centred, focused on me and what I wanted and no doubt seeing circumstance and others only in term of how they benefit me.
We all know the discomfort and the feeling of separation that comes from doing things just for ourselves Yet even the feeling that comes from doing things for others, for family, friends, clients and neighbours is also not completely comfortable. They are still my family, my friends, my neighbours. A separate individual is still involved in the doing. A self that feels incomplete and is really using others and things to feel better. Yet can anyone who sees their identity as being limited to a body act other than from a sense of lack?
What’s the alternative?
Acting from a place of knowing you are connected with others and circumstances?
Simply being present for what is required in the moment?
Responding to everything as the true loving Self you are?
A Course of Love says that the only thing that can be accomplished is yourself.
You who want to accomplish much good in the world realize that only you can be accomplished. P.13
All that you desire and cannot learn is already accomplished. Its is accomplished in you. It is you. C3.2
As The Accomplished you now are able to access the universal mind. The joy that will come to you from the thoughts of a mind joined in union will be unparalleled in your experience here. T1.9
So if you look at the year ahead and think about accomplishing something remember: only you can be accomplished.

Launch of the online Miracle Choice Pocket Game Guide Training
The Pocket Game Guide Training has been a success in both English and Portuguese. It was first launched as a live one day training in November 2017 in Scotland and Brazil. The online version was up and running in Portuguese shortly after but it is only now that the English online version is ready.
The online training is made up of 4 modules lasting 2 hours and spaced weekly.
The date for the first module is Wednesday 24th January at 9pm UK time (1pm PST) and then on 31st January, 7th February and 14 February. The modules are live and involve slides and online game play. If you miss a module you can watch the recording. The group size is a maximum of 4 so that all participants have time to practice guiding the pocket game. James will be the trainer and you can ask him any question about it by return of email. You only need access to the internet and a dice to participate. You can sign up and pay by clicking here.
