“There is nothing my holiness cannot do.”
This lesson reminds me of the opening statement of the Course, “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” I equate holiness with remembering the truth of our wholeness or oneness. This world of separation is a dream. In truth, in reality, there are no problems. Nothing real can be threatened. Love cannot be threatened. What is not Love is a dream and is coming from the false mind that makes up dreams.
When put in Holy Spirit’s hands, any dream can change. Lemons will be turned to lemonade when put in Holy Spirit’s hands. Once I put a problem in Holy Spirit’s hands I can confidently say, “I can hardly wait to see the good that comes from this.” The Holy Spirit can bring peace to my mind with any perceived problem, if I let It. The Holy Spirit brings me a reversal in thinking. I see the whole situation differently. I see that every perceived problem comes from false thinking, and false thinking can be changed.
I can be taught to bless instead of curse. I can be taught to see peace instead of conflict and fear. I can be taught to see past every form the ego mind makes up to the constant, eternal Light of truth that is always there behind the dream story. I can be trained to open up to the truth behind every dream, behind every problem. I can be taught to hold to the truth. The truth is true and nothing else is true. Herein lies the peace of God. Herein lies the Love of God and herein lies the healing idea that I can extend Love instead of the ego’s lies in every situation There is nothing my holiness cannot do.
For me, the most remarkable statement Jesus makes in regard to today’s lesson is that I have dominion over all things. It is a statement of freedom and a release of the need to control. For me, dominion means to be that which is whole, and all circumstances and events and relationships are experienced accordingly. It seems that every lesson weaves a powerful thread of inspiration to be aware of my wholeness, to be in the moment, to be Love as I was created.
What a tremendous burden is lifted from my mind when I accept that peace and joy are not dependent upon my outer circumstances, but that how I perceive my outer circumstances are the effect of whether I am being peace and joy or not. What a sense of freedom to be in a moment where I truly accept and need not control anything to be fulfilled. It occurs naturally if I just make the choice to be in Love and allow it to flow.
