Love Heals All Fear

“The holy instant is a time in which you receive and give perfect communication. This means, however, that it is a time in which your mind is open, both to receive and give [God’s perfect Love]. It is the recognition that all minds are in communication. It therefore seeks to change nothing, but merely to accept everything [God’s Love].”

“Every thought you would keep hidden shuts communication off, because you would have it so. It is impossible to recognize perfect communication [extending and receiving God’s perfect Love] while breaking communication holds value to you. Ask yourself honestly, “Would I want to have perfect communication [of Love’s unity], and am I wholly willing to let everything that interferes with it go forever?” If the answer is no, then the Holy Spirit’s readiness to give it to you is not enough to make [God’s Love] yours, for you are not ready to share it with Him. And [Love’s unity] cannot come into a mind that has decided to oppose it. For the holy instant is given and received with equal willingness, being the acceptance of the single Will that governs all thought.

“The necessary condition for the holy instant does not require that you have no thoughts that are not pure [Love]. But it does require that you have none that you would keep. Innocence is not of your making. It is given you the instant you would have it.… You will not be able to accept perfect communication as long as you would hide it from yourself. For what you would hide is hidden from you. In your practice, then, try only to be vigilant against deception, and seek not to protect the thoughts you would keep to yourself. Let the Holy Spirit’s purity shine them away, and bring all your awareness to the readiness for purity [God’s perfect Love] He offers you. Thus will He make you ready to acknowledge that you are host to God, and hostage to no one and to nothing.” (T-15.IV.7:5-8;8-9)

Communication with God is joining with the eternal giving and receiving of His perfect Love. In this joining, we experience the flow of Love through us by receiving It and giving It. If we try to keep any Love for ourselves alone or try to limit who we give Love to, we are opposing Love and lose awareness of Love’s Presence. We break communication with God and His Creation (all our brothers).

Any time we experience a disturbance of our peace, we are engaged with the ego’s thoughts of denial of God’s Love. We need to be vigilant to bring these thoughts to the Holy Spirit with willingness to accept His vision in place of the ego’s deceptive perception. With His help we will recognize the call for Love and answer it with Love. Love heals all fear and brings peace to our mind.
