In Truth, We Are in God’s Light and of God’s Light

God is the light in which I see.

In order to see, you must recognize that light is within, not without. You do not see outside yourself, nor is the equipment for seeing outside you. An essential part of this equipment is the light that makes seeing possible. It is with you always, making vision possible in every circumstance. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.44.2)

Because we carry God’s Light with us wherever we go, we can open to seeing with this Light. This is our practice for today. We become open to the truth by wanting to see the truth. This is accepting our inheritance.

In truth we are always in God’s Light and we only see truly as we see with God’s Light. As we practice this, our thoughts are purified. Fear disappears as the Light of Love returns to our awareness. This Light within us shows us the truth in our brothers, which is the truth of our one Self. We joyfully practice this today.

Opening Our Hearts to God Today

You are as God created you. Today honor your Self.…

Seek Him today, and find Him. He will be your Savior from all idols you have made. For when you find Him, you will understand how worthless are your idols, and how false the images which you believed were you. Today we make a great advance to truth by letting idols go, and opening our hands and hearts and minds to God today.” (A Course in Miracles W-pI.110.9:1-2;10)

Opening our hearts to God is the same as opening our hearts to receive God’s peace, joy and Love… This is the opposite of the roller coaster ride of the journey the ego takes us on. To the ego mind, opening our hearts to God is boring. It is not filled with constant change. It is not filled with seeing differences. It is not filled with the fear-ridden ride of the ego’s dream.

Today we choose to experience the simplicity of God’s peace and changeless Love… We choose God’s quietness… We let ourselves be carried as we rest in God’s peace… We want only Love and we find only Love…

Making Way for Indescribable Happiness

The ego has set it up to make the world seem believable and real. The body with its eyes and other senses is the principal mechanism to provide feedback of the seeming reality of the world of form. Yet the Course is telling us that the body is itself an illusion and can only show us illusions. The Course is leading us to let go of believing what the body’s senses show us and to redirect our attention to the vision offered us by the Holy Spirit — Christ’s vision. This is an inner vision that does not have anything to do with the body’s eyes.

Today we are determined to give our full attention to the vision of Christ. This means we are willing to set aside the meaning we habitually give to the images of the world. We hold our minds open to receive Holy Spirit’s meaning through His vision. As we accept His help, we open the way to indescribable happiness. We open the way to remember Heaven.

What Is Today’s Purpose?

Today’s purpose is to awaken to the truth. Holy Spirit’s purpose for today is to help us see past our dreams of separate identities to the truth of Love’s Oneness. He wants to return us to Heaven, our natural Home. In truth we are There now, but are not aware of it. We are not aware of it because we are too busy looking at dreams of separation and differences.

Today we will focus on remembering our real purpose, which is to receive Holy Spirit’s thought reversal all through the day. Our purpose is to let the Holy Spirit use every circumstance to return us to the awareness of Love’s Presence.

We still belong to our Father, our Source. We recognize this when we let Holy Spirit show us the Light of truth beyond the forms of the world. Holy Spirit’s thought reversal always brings us peace, as we are brought past time to the changeless present.

Looking Past the Body to the Light

You are the means for God; not separate, nor with a life apart from His. His life is manifest in you who are His Son. Each aspect of Himself is framed in holiness and perfect purity, in love celestial and so complete it wishes only that it may release all that it looks upon unto itself. Its radiance shines through each body that it looks upon, and brushes all its darkness into light merely by looking past it to the light. The veil is lifted through its gentleness, and nothing hides the face of Christ from its beholders. You and your brother stand before Him now, to let Him draw aside the veil that seems to keep you separate and apart. (A Course in Miracles T-25.I.4)

Our practice today is to look past the body to the Light of Christ in everyone. We want to see the truth about every brother. The Holy Spirit is in our minds and will show us the truth as we are willing. Our willingness to let the Holy Spirit be in charge of what we see is our primary focus today. As we accept His vision, we learn of the Christ in us. The Christ is all we want to see and it is there to be seen. It takes only our willingness.

Opening to the Light of Love

There is no death because the Son of God is like his Father. Nothing you can do can change Eternal Love. Forget your dreams of sin and guilt, and come with me instead to share the resurrection of God’s Son. And bring with you all those whom He has sent to you to care for as I care for you. (A Course in Miracles C-5.6:9-12)

We do not go Home alone because we go Home by recognizing that we are not alone. It is only the mistaken belief that we are separate that makes us feel that we are not alone. Yet we were created by Love as Eternal Love. That will never change. To return Home we must let the Light of Love, the Holy Spirit, shine away our misperceptions so that the Eternal Love that is everywhere and in everything is recognized.

Today we will practice opening our minds to the Holy Spirit’s Light to let It shine on all our perceptions. His Light will show us the truth of our unity with every brother and of the Love that we share. In gratitude we join with our brothers and walk with them into the Light of our Home.

Accepting Holy Spirit’s Lessons

This is the lesson God would have you learn: There is a way to look on everything that lets it be to you another step to Him, and to salvation of the world. To all that speaks of terror, answer thus:

I will forgive, and this will disappear.

To every apprehension, every care and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. And then you hold the key that opens Heaven’s gate, and brings the Love of God the Father down to earth at last, to raise it up to Heaven. God will take this final step Himself. Do not deny the little steps He asks you take to Him.” (A Course in Miracles W-pI.193.13)

This is our prayer for today: Holy Spirit, we take every doubt and uncertainty to You as we go through this day. We make no decisions on our own. But, rather, we open our minds to Your inspiration. We know You are there waiting for our openness and willingness to join with You. Today our consistent practice is to join with You in everything, holding back nothing to settle by ourselves. We are here to serve Your purpose, letting You lead the way. And we give thanks for your constant guidance and lessons in forgiveness.
