“God’s healing Voice protects all things today.”
What stands out to me today is, “Join me in hearing.” (1:3) As long as I try to be a separate identity, I will not welcome the Voice for God. God’s Voice teaches me that I am not separate and alone.
Jesus represents the full recognition of our unity in God and so he is the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. By joining with him, we share his recognition of oneness. In oneness there can be no loss or harm of any kind. And so we experience the full protection of God’s Love. What greater safety could there be than God’s safety?
I particularly appreciate the practical help which comes from listening to God’s healing Voice: “I need be anxious over nothing. For Your Voice will tell me what to do and where to go; to whom to speak and what to say to him, what thoughts to think, what words to give the world.” (2:2-3)
Holy Spirit, help me to see the Light of truth in all my brothers. Help me to recognize that Light as the Self we all share. I open my mind to Your Word, for I would learn of my safety and my strength, my kindness and my gentleness. With Your help Holy Spirit, I will learn to see that in all my brothers as well. I am grateful for my elder brother’s example of remembering Love and nothing else. And I would join with him in this remembrance. With him I walk in Love. With him I see the face of Christ in everyone. With him I know the Christ in me and I am Home. My heart is filled with joy.
When I quiet my mind of all the ego’s chatter and ask the Holy Spirit to heal my mind, I am very quietly brought to a deeper level of peace. I am brought to a place of stillness and quiet. Here I rest a while.
Here I am brought to the truth that only oneness in God is real. Herein lies my safety. Herein lies the peace of God. Here I see that all the conflict that comes with believing in separated bodies is unnecessary because the appearance of separate bodies is only a dream.
The appearance of separated bodies comes with joining with the ego thought system. The whole thought system is false and therefore not true. The whole thought system could never be in reality. It is just a dream and means nothing.
This is what I learn from my inner Teacher, the Voice for God. I learn that dreams of separation are just dreams and therefore I need not fear them. I need not believe them. With the Voice for God I can understand the difference between what is unreal and what is real. I can let my mind be brought to the truth. I can let my mind rest a while in the truth of oneness. I can let go of all grievances because I now realize that they are not based on reality. Nothing but universal Love can really happen. The rest is dreams. “God’s healing Voice protects all things today.”
This lesson contains such a beautiful prayer. It made my heart sing with joy when I read it. I am going to copy it into my day-timer and read it frequently to protect my peace throughout the day.
