Review: “God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“There is one life, and that I share with God. Your grace is given me. I claim it now.”
If my real Life I share with God, then my real Life must be an eternal Life of Love. A ‘life’ of judgment and fear, guilt and loss cannot be real. What I have been thinking as living all my life cannot be real and can never be fulfilling. I was created as Love and given the purpose of extending Love. Only fulfilling my purpose can bring me happiness. So if I want happiness, my only job is to extend Love. That is all that ever happens in reality.
But because I have made illusions in my mind, they interfere with my awareness of reality. Forgiveness is the means by which I let go of the interference so that I can experience God’s Life of Love that is mine in truth. Each time I am able to release a moment of frustration, recognizing that it had no cause, I open my awareness more to my Life of Love.
Each time I am able to take a long-standing resentment to the Holy Spirit and receive His gift of vision that shows me it had no cause, I move another step closer to full awareness of my Life of Love. Forgiveness gives me the gift of Life. By God’s grace, all the illusions I have made cannot change the reality that my Life is Love and nothing else. Forgiveness is the means by which I accept His grace. In every moment I have the opportunity to let go of the past and be free to live my real Life.
Holy Spirit, I give my mind to you today to guide and protect with the power of your Love. I ask your help to recognize my mistaken ideas that interfere with my awareness of true Life. Separation and individuality are not Life. But I have thought they were. I need your help, Holy Spirit, to recognize the illusions I have made for what they are. I am willing to be taught. I am willing to let illusions go and receive the gift of Life, long since given and mine now. Thank you Holy Spirit for your comfort, your strength and your sure direction.
