Let Him Lead the Way

Let Him evaluate each thought that comes to mind, remove the elements of dreams, and give them back again as clean ideas that do not contradict the Will of God.

…Now has our ministry begun at last, to carry round the world the joyous news that truth has no illusions, and the peace of God, through us, belongs to everyone. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.151.13:4,17:3)

If we want to be happy, we need to let go of trying to interpret anything on our own. Believing that we are on our own is the denial of happiness because it is the denial of the Self that God created as His Son. This is why the practice of letting the Holy Spirit, our true Self, be the Interpreter of everything is the key to happiness. He knows that nothing that the body’s senses perceive means anything and looks past it to the truth that is the Spirit of Love in everyone and everything. It is the recognition of this that brings happiness. We want to be happy and so our practice today is to put the Holy Spirit to the forefront of our minds as our preferred Interpreter in every moment. This is how we let Him lead the way.

Trust in the Spirit of Love, Our True Identity

As peace extends from deep inside yourself to embrace all the Sonship and give it rest, [peace] will encounter many obstacles. Some [obstacles] you will try to impose. Others will seem to arise from elsewhere; from your brothers, and from various aspects of the world outside. Yet peace will gently cover [these obstacles], extending past completely unencumbered. The extension of the Holy Spirit’s purpose from your relationship to others, to bring them gently in, is the way in which He will bring means and goal in line. The peace He lay, deep within you and your brother, will quietly extend to every aspect of your life, surrounding you and your brother with glowing happiness and the calm awareness of complete protection. (A Course in Miracles T-19.IV.1:1-6)

When we are willing to accept Holy Spirit’s precious gift of peace, a sense of well-being and inner contentment comes with it. The beingness of our true Identity as the Spirit of Love comes with accepting peace. The fearful stories of vulnerability, weakness and death fall away. We know that we are safe in the certainty of God’s changeless Love.

As we become more willing to claim the peace of our true Identity, our trust in God replaces our misplaced trust in the ego’s false stories based on being separate from God. Our trust in the Spirit of Love we are shines away the old and tired attraction to the false images of separation from our Source. We value the peace of our true Identity more than we value the ever-changing fearful stories of sickness, vulnerability and death. The peace of our true Identity helps us see past bodies to the Spirit of Love that is eternal everywhere. We let peace embrace the whole Sonship and give it rest from all the turmoil of the world. We put peace first today.

Accepting True Perception

f you are willing to accept what is true in everything you perceive, you let it be true for you. Truth overcomes all error, and those who live in error and emptiness can never find lasting solace. If you perceive truly you are cancelling out misperceptions in yourself and in others simultaneously. Because you see them as they are, you offer them your acceptance of their truth so they can accept it for themselves. This is the healing that the miracle induces. (A Course in Miracales T-3.II.6:3-7)

While we believe we are on our own, it is impossible to perceive truly. True perception is based on the recognition of oneness. We connect with this recognition through the Holy Spirit in our mind, Who knows that only the oneness of Love is real.

To accept true perception, we must be willing to accept Holy Spirit’s vision. This vision will show us our innocence. It will show us the changeless in ourselves, our brothers and God. The more we maintain a state of peace, the more receptive we are to the Holy Spirit’s true perception. This is our practice today.

Vigilance for Thought Purification

Purify my thoughts, Holy Spirit. I am open to Your healing Light. I welcome thought reversal because I am willing to welcome the truth instead of illusions.

As I let my mind be purified, I remember that I am still as God created me and this truth applies to everyone in the dream. Everyone in this dream world of separation is still safe in the Mind of God. There is no death. The one Son of God is still as God created Him, right now. With this mind purification comes peace. In truth we all share the one Mind of God, because we are the one Mind of God. With this purification comes accepting Reality, now and for eternity. In this remembering there is only gratitude, peace and joy.


Joy and peace beyond words are the natural condition of the Kingdom of God, and of His one Son. To be vigilant for God and His Kingdom means that I measure every thought against the condition of the Kingdom. Does this thought foster joy and peace? If it does, it is worthy to be kept in the Mind of God’s Son. If it does not meet this standard, then the thought needs to be let go.

The Holy Spirit’s function in my mind is to help me in this evaluative process. Through my vigilance I accept His help, which will set me free.

Nothing Has Happened to Change God’s One Son

You are as God created you. Today honor your Self. Let graven images you made to be the Son of God instead of what he is be worshipped not today. Deep in your mind the holy Christ in you is waiting your acknowledgment as you.

…Today we make a great advance to truth by letting idols go, and opening our hands and hearts and minds to God today.

…This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven, and that lets you enter in the peace of God and His eternity. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.110.9:1-4;10:4;11:7)


The birth of Christ is the reawakening to the truth in our minds. As we accept that we are as God created us, we accept the one, loving Self that joins us all. We let go of all the false images that made it look like we were separate and alone. We give joyous welcome to the Love we are and see It everywhere. The appearance of conflict is replaced by the experience of peace. We remember that we remain as God created us. Nothing has happened to change God’s one Son.

Let Truth Return to Our Minds

What am I and where am I in truth? When I am willing to go within and let the Truth be shown to me, I see that this same Truth applies to everyone in the dream that I see as outside myself through the body’s eyes. In truth, I am Spirit. I am the Spirit of Love and peace and joy. I am as God created me. And this one Identity applies to everyone I see in the dream.

When I am willing to go within and receive the Truth, all problems disappear because I am brought to the awareness that anything not of Love could never be. Peace and happiness reigns in this state of mind. The Light has come and I see past the images of separation in the world.

So today my practice is to ask frequently, “What am I and where am I in Truth?” And then step back and let the truth return to my mind. From this state of mind, I see clearly that only Love is real. I join with the Truth in everyone. Here is where peace is found. Letting the truth return to my mind is all that is important for today.


Today is another day to practice making no decisions on my own. To do this, I need to be vigilant for peace. Peace and understanding go together. As I stay in peace, my mind is open to Holy Spirit’s inspiration. And my doing will be motivated by Love.

Waken Gently with Joy

God willed [His Son] waken gently and with joy, and gave him means to waken without fear.

Accept the dream He gave instead of yours. …Rest in the Holy Spirit, and allow His gentle dreams to take the place of those you dreamed in terror and in fear of death. (A Course in Miracles T-27.VII.13:5,14:1,3)


The ego would have us believe that God is to be feared. This is simply a projection of the ego belief in the reality of separation and the guilt that is its consequence. This passage from the Course is an assurance that fear of God is never justified. In fact, He has given us the means to awaken without fear, to let the dream end gently. The Holy Spirit offers us the means to forgive or let go of the idea that separation could ever occur. As we let the Holy Spirit help us forgive, we make way for the Holy Spirit’s happy dream in which we recognize the innocence of every brother and ourselves.

Today our practice is to stay in peace where the Holy Spirit will help us let go of the mistaken belief in guilt. In peace, we will see the truth in our brother and ourselves. In peace, the Holy Spirit will help us let go of the barriers to love we have made, and we will remember the joy of unity in the reality of Love.
