I call upon God's Name and on my own.

This morning I got a call from a brother asking: What name should I use all through the day? God, Jehova, Abba, Father, Jim?

We were laughing together because if you are in the experience of God you could call him anything, like coat hanger for example. God is the BIG Name behind any form and so little things and names join in that ONE meaning.

And...what does it say in today's lesson?
Repeat the Name of God, and little names have lost their meaning. No temptation but becomes a nameless (!!!!) and unwanted thing before God's Name. Repeat His Name, and see how easily you will forget the names of all the gods you valued.

I love this lesson because there is no room to ever be in conflict or unhappy, because you literally will create an altar for truth, each time you turn to God.

Those who call upon the Name of God can not mistake the nameless for the Name, nor sin for grace, nor bodies for the holy Son of God. And should you join a brother as you sit with him in silence, and repeat God's Name along with him within your quiet mind, you have established there an altar which reaches to God Himself and to His Son.

I went with friends on the Wisconsin river today. I live here about 10 years, but I never rented a boat to go play on the river and it was the most beautiful thing.
So, we parked the boat on a little beach and my friend read today's lesson.
We had been in this quiet almost surreal space. Nobody was around. No boats, no people. All of the sudden while reading this passage of the lesson:

God's Name can not be heard without response(!!!!), nor said without an echo in the mind that calls you to remember.

....and there they where, at least 6 boats at once with everyone waving at us, big waves coming up the shore and just a lot of energy. Like EVERYTHING responded to this lesson. I am telling you soon on every airport, shopping mall or bus station there will be an hourly reminder of the daily lesson of A Course In Miracles coming over the speakers.
God thank you for this day. I love you.

I love this story. It's true. When I met God, I was told that it really didn't matter what you wanted to call him/it. It wasn't even a him. God didn't care what attributes of gender or name you give, just as long as you believe in and call upon God. I also liked your story about the barber that doesn't exist! Lol. I need to remember that for when people come to me with the same issue. I just started my own ACIM blog, chronicling my personal experience with each of the daily lessons with the goal of trying to get through the whole workbook. I'm having a blast & meeting so many like-minded (or shall I say "miracleminded") people. I'd love for you to stop by. I need more positive feedback from other Acimers. My link is:
