The Course In Miracles

Feeling Sideways

by Frank Dobner

Maybe you have also had the experience of having a day, when for no apparent reason, there is nothing you can do to change the way you feel. You woke up just feeling “sideways.” You even get heroic and start going through the motions….take a shower, go for a walk, exercise, brush your teeth…but nothing can get your heart purring.

I had a day like this on Thursday this week. I actually had a good day on Wednesday. I had a pleasant noontime business meeting on Wednesday and the usually good discussion at my A Course in Miracles (The Course) group on Wednesday evening. And then, for whatever reason…..Thursday morning I woke up feeling like the farmer guy in the beginning of the movie Men in Black that is killed by the alien and get his body used as a human costume……”more sugar!”
