A Visit to Love’s Peace Spa

“I rest in God.” This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. “I rest in God.” This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is. Here is the end of suffering for all the world, and everyone who ever came and yet will come to linger for a while. Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize himself.

“I rest in God.” Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem that it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

You rest today. And as you close your eyes, sink into stillness. Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind that all its frantic fantasies were but the dreams of fever that has passed away. Let [your mind] be still and thankfully accept its healing. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 109,W-pI.109.2-3;5:3-6. See also ACIM Lesson 109 Insights.)

Within us is our Home in the changelessness of God’s Love. It is the truth of What we are as His Creation. The belief that we have separated from our Creator makes us unaware that we are at Home in God. It is this belief that makes a world of different people, different places, the passing of time, perception of loss and harm — a world of constant change — seem real. It makes us unaware that we rest in the certainty of changeless Love.

It is time to pause and step back from the world of dreams. It is time to direct our attention to the center of peace within. Here is our true Home. Here we rest and remember that we have all of God’s Love and we are perfectly safe in Love’s changelessness.

We can relax in this peace… We rest in the spa of Love’s peace… We feel the Love soften our anxiety and stress that come from believing in the dream world… As we feel the calming presence of Love, the dream fades and the certainty of God’s Love steps forward… We know that we are safe and we are Home.

We are rejuvenated and bring the certainty of our safety with us as we return to the world to bring the message of the Love we all are to the world.
