The Key to Happiness

God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.

Accept Atonement with an open mind, which cherishes no lingering belief that you have made a devil of God’s Son. There is no sin. We practice with this thought as often as we can today, because it is the basis for today’s idea.

God’s Will for you is perfect happiness because there is no sin, and suffering is causeless. Joy is just, and pain is but the sign you have misunderstood yourself. Fear not the Will of God. But turn to it in confidence that it will set you free from all the consequences sin has wrought in feverish imagination. Say:

God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
There is no sin; it has no consequence.

You are set on freedom’s road, and now today’s idea brings wings to speed you on, and hope to go still faster to the waiting goal of peace. There is no sin. Remember this today, and tell yourself as often as you can:

God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
This is the truth, because there is no sin.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 101,W-pI.101.5:3-6:7;7:3-7. See also ACIM Lesson 101 Insights.)

The central idea the Course offers us is that only Love is real. This excludes the possibility of harm or guilt because Love cannot harm. Love is one. Harm could only be possible if there were an “other” that could be attacked. The appearance of differences in separation is impossible in the oneness of Love.

Yet differences, separation and harm seem to be all that exists in the world we perceive. Only our belief that separation is true makes the world seem real. Thus we believe the impossible is possible. This could only occur in dreams.

Harm is not real, for only the changeless Love of God is real. Accepting the truth of this thought is the key to freedom from fear and guilt. If harm is impossible, then guilt can never be justified. The acceptance of the reality of God’s changeless Love brings with it His perfect happiness.

When we identify with the Truth that we are an extension of God’s Love, the illusions of harm, guilt and fear fade away to be replaced by God’s joy and peace. All the attributes of God’s Love are ours forever, never to be diminished. Today we practice this thought — to remind ourselves that we are free, for sin is not real. Only Love is real. This is the key to happiness.
