The Holy Spirit’s Happy Lessons

I follow in the way appointed me.

I have a special place to fill; a role for me alone. Salvation waits until I take this part as what I choose to do. Until I make this choice, I am the slave of time and human destiny. But when I willingly and gladly go the way my Father’s plan appointed me to go, then will I recognize salvation is already here, already given all my brothers and already mine as well.

Father, Your way is what I choose today. Where it would lead me do I choose to go; what it would have me do I choose to do. Your way is certain, and the end secure. The memory of You awaits me there. And all my sorrows end in Your embrace, which You have promised to Your Son, who thought mistakenly that he had wandered from the sure protection of Your loving Arms. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 317, W-pII.317. See also ACIM Lesson 317 Insights.)

God’s Will for us is perfect happiness. His plan for us leads us to accept the perfect happiness that has already been given us. In every moment we choose between God’s plan for our happiness or the ego’s plan that denies our happiness and the presence of Love.

The ego is afraid of God’s plan because if we accept it, it would be the end of the ego. So the ego offers us all kinds of trinkets and schemes as substitutes for God’s Love. Sometimes they give us temporary satisfaction, but they are soon recognized as empty and unfulfilling.

Our special function is to forgive or let go of the beliefs we have accepted as true in place of the oneness of God’s Love. Every moment of every day is a learning opportunity. If we follow the Holy Spirit’s lessons, we will learn to recognize the ego’s empty and meaningless substitutes for Love and pass them by. We will learn that we remain Love’s extension and nothing else. We will learn that we do not need to seek for Love because we already are Love. This is God’s plan for each of us — a progression of lessons that lead us to the perfect happiness God wills for us.
