Giving Each Day to God

How simply and how easily does time slip by for the teacher of God who has accepted His protection! All that he did before in the name of safety no longer interests him. For he is safe, and knows it to be so. He has a Guide Who will not fail. He need make no distinctions among the problems he perceives, for He to Whom he turns with all of them recognizes no order of difficulty in resolving them. He is as safe in the present as he was before illusions were accepted into his mind, and as he will be when he has let them go. There is no difference in his state at different times and different places, because they are all one to God. (A Course in Miracles M-16.7:1-7)

We give this day to God… Of ourselves, we do not know what to do with it. We have no separate will of our own. We rely on opening to God’s Will in every circumstance… We know our safety lies in keeping in constant contact with our inner Guide Who cannot fail… What can be more certain than the strength of God? We feel His strength as we give the day to God.

Forgiveness Offers You Peace and Joy

Today it will be given you to feel the peace forgiveness offers, and the joy the lifting of the veil holds out to you.

Before the light you will receive today the world will fade until it disappears, and you will see another world arise you have no words to picture. Now we walk directly into light, and we receive the gifts that have been held in store for us since time began, kept waiting for today.

Forgiveness offers everything you want. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.122.11:2-13:1)

Whenever we are unhappy or out of peace, it is always because we are judging the situation we perceive. We think that if somehow the situation were different we would be happy. This is characteristic of the ego, which always directs us to seek where we cannot find what we truly want. Happiness cannot be found in any circumstance that appears to be outside us. Happiness can only be found in the acceptance of our Self.

The denial of our Self is what needs to be forgiven, or let go. From the perspective of being alone and separate, it is impossible to know how to reach the experience of our oneness in Love. But the Holy Spirit is in our minds with the sole purpose of guiding us to that awareness — that we are Love and nothing else.

Today our practice is to walk with Holy Spirit, letting Him point the way and share His vision with us. With His help, we will pierce through the veil of Self denial and return to our Home in Love. Today will be a happy day indeed.

You Are Entitled to See as God Sees

Because you are God’s Son, you have the inherent ability to see as God sees. You have the inherent ability to love as God loves. God has given you all of Himself. He has given you all of His Love. And so God’s Love and Light is yours to receive and give. As you give God’s Light, you naturally heal and are healed.

The Majesty of God is there, for you to recognize and appreciate and know. Recognizing the Majesty of God as your brother is to accept your own inheritance. God gives only equally. If you recognize His gift in anyone, you have acknowledged what He has given you. (A Course in Miracles T-7.XI.5:3-6)

We cannot see as God sees if we see our brother as a body. As we practice asking in every circumstance, “Help me see this as Love sees it,” we will learn to see past the body to the eternal truth that only Love is real. Appearances of danger, loss, inadequacy, limitation and guilt will be recognized as having no substance. They will fade away as we let ourselves see the brilliant Light of Love that is eternally present. This is our practice for today.

The Boundless Circle of Our Peace

You rest within the peace of God today, and call upon your brothers from your rest to draw them to their rest, along with you. You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting no one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest. Open the temple doors and let them come from far across the world, and near as well; your distant brothers and your closest friends; bid them all enter here and rest with you. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.109.8)

Giving time to rest in God is our highest priority today. Here we remember our safety and innate happiness. Here the veil is lifted and we receive the vision that sees beyond appearances to the truth that we reside in God’s boundless circle of peace. As we willingly go to this inner place of stillness and quiet, the door to the real world is opened to us.

We go past time to the eternal truth that the whole Sonship remains as it was created by God. God’s Will is done, and we remain in Heaven. Everyone who has ever experienced lives throughout time still remains within God’s holy Light. We call to all our brothers to rest with us today to receive and extend the peace of God. The peace we give, we receive.

Forgiveness Reveals Our Holiness

Forgiveness gently looks upon all things unknown in Heaven, sees them disappear, and leaves the world a clean and unmarked slate on which the Word of God can now replace the senseless symbols written there before.

Anger becomes impossible, and where is terror then? What fears could still assail those who have lost the source of all attack, the core of anguish and the seat of fear? Only forgiveness can relieve the mind of thinking that the body is its home. Only forgiveness can restore the peace that God intended for His holy Son. Only forgiveness can persuade the Son to look again upon his holiness.” (A Course in Miracles W-pI.192.4:1;5:3-7)

We were created holy by Holiness Itself. When we identify with the body as what we are, it is impossible to know our holiness because we are believing we are separate from the Source of Holiness. At its core, all forgiveness is letting go of belief in separation.

Our experience in the world is constantly showing us a reflection of what we believe. Bodies and what they seem to do are simply images that reflect our belief that we are separate. These images serve the ego’s purpose of making separation seem real. But these images can also serve the Holy Spirit’s purpose as a reminder that we need to let go of believing we are bodies, separate from other bodies and the world. Images in the world then become the Holy Spirit’s teaching aids to help us learn to forgive the world of everything we believe it is.

When we let the Holy Spirit be our Guide, every situation in the world becomes an opportunity to forgive and let our holiness be revealed to us. Today our practice is to let Holy Spirit be our interpreter of every circumstance we perceive. Thus will we learn to recognize our holiness which includes the holiness of every brother.

I Will There Be Light

When illusions seem to cover us and make the fearful dream seem real, we can choose not to keep them. The consistent habit of choosing to see only Light is an invitation to the Holy Spirit to help us see every circumstance through the eyes of Love.

Saying, “I will there be Light,” invites the true perception of the Holy Spirit to show us what lies past the illusions of separation — He brings us to the eternal truth that we are still one in the Mind of God. We remember that are still as God created us, and nothing can harm God’s one Son.

As we accept Holy Spirit’s thoughts, we receive the peace of Heaven. The ego’s thoughts disappear because, when we choose the truth, what is not true disappears. The song of Heaven is heard clearly now and we feel the strength and vision of our true Self. The dream of separate bodies is no longer fearful and we can smile with Holy Spirit at our mistaken thoughts that we believed were true. We give thanks for our healed perception and our gratitude extends endlessly. We are in a world of Light and our acceptance of this truth allows us to become aware of It.

Today our practice is to say frequently to ourselves, “I will there be Light.” Our willingness throughout the day to see past illusions to the truth is an invitation to the Holy Spirit to guide us to the awareness our oneness with God’s eternal Creation. “I will there be Light” brings with it the willingness to return Home and see that we are eternally safe in God’s oneness.

We Stand Together in Innocence

…forgiveness is the only means whereby Christ’s vision comes to me. Let me accept what His sight shows me as the simple truth, and I am healed completely. Brother, come and let me look on you. Your loveliness reflects my own. Your sinlessness is mine. You stand forgiven, and I stand with you. (A Course in Miracles W-pII.247.1:3-8)

Our opportunity today is to see every brother we encounter, or even think of, as God sees them. This is how we let go of suffering and pain. This is how we are healed. We accept that God’s Will is our will today and God has given all of Himself to every part of the Sonship. We free ourselves as we accept today that we stand together in innocence with every brother. We are the same Light. There is no distance between us.
