“Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love.
To offer them is to remember Him,
And through His memory to save the world.”
The Son of God was created to be one with God and therefore one with all That Is. Thus, “The Son of God incorporates all things within himself.” The truth is that we are the Son of God and the Son of God is not changed by our weird and wild imaginings.
But if we deny our identity as a Son of God and believe we are something else, then what we perceive will be a world where the Son of God is unrecognized, unknown and unseen. The world our body’s eyes show us is such a world, for it was made to be a place where God could not enter. The world is a judgment against God, representing our rejection of Him as our Creator. That is why if we are to return to awareness of the Son of God as our Self and God as our Creator, we must forgive.
Judgment keeps us feeling separate. Forgiveness opens our minds to the recognition of our oneness with all. Judgment brings conflict. Forgiveness brings peace of mind. Judgment brings depression. Forgiveness welcomes the joy of God and makes it our own.
Father help me to recognize my unforgiving thoughts so that I may bring them to You for help in releasing them. It is through Your strength in me that I am able to forgive. I would accept Your strength today. Into Your hands I commend my Spirit, for I would know once again the joy of my unity in You. Thank You Father for Your holy Son, the Self that I would remember I am.
Focusing on the things of this world as if they were real is a way not to remember God, not to remember everyone’s eternal reality as Love. Being willing to open my mind to receiving miracles lets that memory of changeless Love return.
As we receive the miracles the Holy Spirit brings, we see that nothing other than Love could be real. We see the falsity of the world’s illusions. We see that we are still as God created us. We see God’s Son as one. That is why this lesson says, “Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love.”
The world is a distraction from accepting the truth of God’s oneness. Focusing on a world of separation will not bring me eternal happiness. It is not what I want. It is just a decoy, hiding what is really mine. Today I would not close off my mind to what receiving miracles would bring. Today I would practice opening my mind to the Thoughts of the Holy Spirit.
If I am to awaken to the truth, I need my thoughts purified of all my evaluations and judgments of what is real. I need to be reminded that separate bodies are not God’s Will and therefore are not real. I do not know what anything means on my own. I need to remember that I am not on my own. I need Holy Spirit’s gentle correction of all my perceptions.
Today I would quiet my mind of all the world’s distractions and let my mind open to the truth. As I allow my mind to be changed, the world I see changes, because I now recognize the world I see is coming from my thoughts.
I am willing to give up my belief in what is constantly changing and accept what is eternal. I am willing to return to my true Self and see the true Self of everyone. I am willing to see that there is only one Light and that there is no distance between us.
