The particular Miracle Regarding Forgiveness

I needed to fairly share this story with most of you. As a student of A Course In Miracles, certainly one of my goals is to look at each moment as a way to practice forgiveness.

I’d some of those moments another day. This is a simple, yet very tangible connection with the power of forgiveness inside our everyday lives.

I’d just finished my night with the band I use regularly best course in miracles podcasts in Las Vegas. A patron had thrown a $100 chip up onto the stage as a tip.(Nice!) So I visited the casino cage to money in this chip so the band could split it up.

As I was waiting in line, another man came out and simply walked right before me. He did not look my way, he just acted as though I was invisible, and proceeded to stand before me. So, my first instict is, like, “uh, you’re NOT planning to cut before me, pal”, and I began getting all tense red and in the facial skin and all that. And this man, who cut, then was grumbling to himself about how long it was taking in the line!! “Oh, man what’re they doing back there, oh, come ON!!” Geez.

But I remembered the Course and what it says, so I thought about considering this situation differently. I thought, what does it matter if he goes first anyways? Is it planning to kill me if I wait one more 30 seconds to money in this chip which I was fortunate to obtain in the very first place? You realize, maybe this man just gambled away his whole house or something!
