The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. It pauses to caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing with it that remains forever and forever.
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
With intensified preparations for the celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace, A Course In Miracles International is calling all visual artists to submit digital reproductions of their works, for inclusion in a large slide show, part of the display in the exhibition entitled “The Art of Love and Forgiveness”, to be held in the enormous Revelation Hall at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, beginning on Friday, September 14 and continuing through Sunday, September 23, 2012.
According to prolific artist, and Event Coordinator, Arty Senger, “This is a great way for artists, world over, to join in this celebration, without the worry or expense involved in transporting large and often fragile artwork. We are urging artists to create or select works inspired by forgiveness and peace. At the forefront of our mind is our need and determination to experience the liberation of forgiveness, and the quietness of peace.”
An illuminate teacher of A Course In Miracles, Ms. Senger, who has been painting for over eighty years, spoke of the joy and peace she discovered in her awakening, and through sharing hundreds of painting. “Peace is our natural state. There is no greater joy than the ability to share it,” she continued. “One of the finest expressions of what I am trying to say can be found in Lesson 188 of our Course In Miracles, where Jesus Christ states, “The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. It pauses to caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing with it that remains forever and forever. What it gives must be eternal. It removes all thoughts of the ephemeral and valueless. It brings renewal to all tired hearts, and lights all vision as it passes by. All of its gifts are given everyone, and everyone unites in giving thanks to you who give, and you who have received.
“The shining in your mind reminds the world of what it has forgotten, and the world restores the memory to you as well. From you salvation radiates with gifts beyond all measure, given and returned. To you, the giver of the gift, does God Himself give thanks. And in His blessing does the light in you shine brighter, adding to the gifts you have to offer to the world.
“The peace of God can never be contained. Who recognizes it within himself must give it. And the means for giving it are in his understanding. He forgives because he recognized the truth in him. The peace of God is shining in you now, and in all living things. In quietness is it acknowledged universally. For what your inward vision looks upon is your perception of the universe.”
International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace, declared by A Course In Miracles International, will be globally observed on September 14 -23, 2012.
