“I am forever an Effect of God.”
As I go through my day, let me remember that “I am forever an Effect of God.” This thought reminds me that I am still as God created me. Nothing has changed. Illusions of individuality cannot change the Truth of what we all are.
I open my mind to the Holy Spirit today and ask that the Light of Truth shine away all the false ideas I have been holding on to. I am willing to follow God’s plan of awakening. I am willing to let my mind be healed today. Let me apply this remembering to every circumstance I encounter in the dream today. I choose to let today be a day of mind healing. I choose to remember that “I am forever an Effect of God.” I choose to be happy instead of right.
The world is transformed when forgiveness is complete, when all illusions have been let go. This transformed world is seen for an instant and then disappears as we awaken in the Heaven that is our Home. Once again we see that forgiveness is the key to release from insane dreams of separation, suffering, pain, loss and death.
The Holy Spirit eagerly awaits our gifts of fear and guilt, judgment and grievances. To Him they are gifts, because when we turn them over to Him, He can exchange them with the gift of Christ’s vision, of peace and happiness and Love. This is His purpose. Our gifts of judgment, guilt and fear He recognizes as illusions and thus to Him their only purpose is that they are an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to give us His blessing in return. He is a Friend indeed. He takes our gifts of pain and transforms them with His Love to gifts of blessing.
Today I dedicate to practicing giving all my thoughts to Him so that I may receive His blessings, which shine on me and show me my Self. His blessings reveal the truth in me and all my brothers. And so I gladly give my gifts of illusions and receive the truth. Thus I will remember, “I am forever an Effect of God.”
