At Home in Heaven

Mary:  This morning during our reading of A Course in Miracles, one sentence that particularly stood out to me was, “Remember that all sense of weakness is associated with the belief you are a body.” (Lesson 91)

When I feel uncertain or afraid, it is very helpful for me to remember that all sense of weakness comes from the belief that I am a body. It doesn’t seem like it, but I know that this is true. My job now with every thought of vulnerability or weakness is to hand it over to the Holy Spirit in my mind.

As I truly hand it over, the Holy Spirit dissolves these thoughts which allows the Light that lies beyond the thoughts to shine through and bring me peace. I always have the answer that heals these false ideas when I am willing to not keep them but hand them over. If I am not feeling peace and happiness, then I can know that somewhere I am keeping these false ideas. The only answer that works is to move into a place of quietness and allow the Holy Spirit to do Its healing work in my mind. I must be willing to let my mind quiet and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.

This is very reassuring to know that there is only one problem and one solution. The problem stems from the belief that I am a body. The solution lies in my willingness to let my mind be quiet and hand over these thoughts. It is here that I find my real strength. It is here that I find a real experience of the Light that is always in my mind. It is here that I am quietly shown my true Identity. I am Spirit at Home in Heaven. This is true and only this is true. From this place of remembering the truth, trust is easy.


Holy Spirit to Robert:
  When you allow yourself to rest in deep peace, you experience the strength and safety of your Self. This is all you really want. This strength is within your reach because it is what you are. The more you are willing to allow yourself to accept peace and to turn over all disturbances to Me and let Me resolve them, the more you will know as personal experience your real Strength.

All perception of weakness comes from belief in a false image of what you are. You made the belief and so you cannot undo it on your own, but I am ever present to provide the vision that shines Light upon the false idea to show you its emptiness and it will disappear into the nothingness from which it came.

Your only function is to offer Me all those thoughts of disturbance. Let them go into My hands. Leave the rest to Me. It is this letting go that opens your heart and mind to the full awareness that you are at Home in Heaven.


Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Offer all your thoughts to My healing Light, for in releasing them, you receive total peace. Let My Love envelop your heart and mind and bring you to the full realization that only Love is real.

Let the Light Heal Every False Idea

Robert:  Holy Spirit, I have no clue as to what I really need. What I see through the body’s eyes is a deception. I am willing to let go. I offer You all my perceptions and all my little thoughts of being alone and separate. I do not know what they really mean and I am willing to be taught. I welcome Your kind and gentle lessons. I know they bring me freedom, peace and joy. Help me to remember that these are my birthright. Help me to see as You see. I would no longer deny my Self.

Holy Spirit to Robert:  I am always here in you. It is impossible to leave you comfortless, for I am part of you. I am your Self, shining in the Light of God’s Love. I am the part of you that remembers What you are. I am the part of you that is changeless and joined with the Love of the Universe. I am ever present, ready to help you each time you open your heart to Me. We walk together, you and I, for we cannot be apart. I am your Friend, so close that there is no distance between us. I am your Self, joined with our Creator, complete and healed and whole.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Let each moment be with Me. Open your mind and let the Light in. We are one Light. There is no distance between us. Let the Light be in charge of every minute of your day. Let the Light heal every false idea. This is forgiveness. This is how you heal: You let your mind be healed by Me in each present moment.

I Place the Future in God’s Hands

Robert:  When I place the future in God’s hands, I rest in His Love. Love guides me and protects me in His changelessness. I have all of God’s Love and there is nothing else I need. I may think I am in a world of lack and loss, but I remain safe in the Loving Hands of God. As I remember to place the future in the hands of God, I am letting go of the past at the same time. When I turn over all my thoughts about the future to Him, there is nothing left but the joyous present in God.


Jesus to Sharyn:
  Let us walk through this so-called world holding hands, knowing we are so loved by our Father. As we walk hand in hand, we are aware of that peace that resides everywhere, including our minds. As we go about our business together, everything becomes clear. We have no needs or want. We have only trust and patience. We know those are gifts from our Father and we accept them gladly.

Opening our hearts and minds to our Father’s Love is all that is important now. As we do this, we are reminded of our True Self and Its only job. As we walk together down the road of “life,” we carry the Light for many and we bless those who have forgotten Who they really are. As we bless others more and more, we are accepting our Father’s blessings more and more. Let us together remember to bless everything that we see or touch today.


Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Go forth in joy remembering this: I have prepared the way for you. You need not fear, but only go forth in joy. Expect miracles. Know that they are there for you. Go forth in confidence, extending Love to all. This is your function. Accept it. Rejoice in it.


Mary:
  I place the future in the Hands of God. There is nothing else to do.

Use Christ’s Vision Today

Robert:  When I am willing to see a brother as one with me, a profound sense of peace washes through me. My heart reaches out with Love to embrace him. All sense of differences fades away. I am in gratitude for this loving presence with me. If I allow myself to stay in this place of unity, this sense of extending out and bringing in with the embrace of Love expands.

Others come in to the circle of Love by my recognition of their inclusion. They were always there. I need only to recognize the truth. I am able to experience this when I am willing to hold my heart and mind open to the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of all things. I hold this intent for today.


Mary:
Today I must ask myself frequently, “What do I think I am and where do I think I am?” This same question is to be asked about every brother, “What do I think my brother is and where do I think my brother is?”

There are two voices that can answer, depending upon my choice. If I listen to the ego, I will think my brother is a separate body with a separate mind, different from me. If I choose, rather, the Holy Spirit, I will be shown the eternal Light that my brother is forever. I will be shown that this same Light that, I see in my brother, is what I truly am. I will be shown that this one eternal Light is where my Home is and, in truth, I have never left. Neither has any brother.

This is the choice that I have today. Today it is my opportunity to practice stepping back and allowing the Holy Spirit to show me the difference between the real and the unreal. The Holy Spirit helps me let go of my belief in illusory bodies that are nowhere and mean nothing. Forgiveness is my goal today.


Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
The gift of vision was given you. Only you can choose to use it, not through the body’s eyes but through Christ’s eyes. Christ’s vision is in line with your true purpose. When looking at a situation or someone, ask Me for Christ’s vision and I will give it to you. Then and only then will you have true perception of what is real. Be sure to ask and it will be given you. It is your inheritance. Use Christ’s vision today and always.

Just Let Go

Holy Spirit to Robert: Just let go. You have thought you needed to be in control to provide for your safety. Just let go. It is impossible for you to know the outcome of any moment, any circumstance that will be the most helpful for all, now or in the seeming future. Just let go. Let Me do My job. I am here to bring you the joy that is God’s gift to you. I am here to bring you His peace.

If you will let me, I will orchestrate the circumstances that will serve to bring God’s peace and joy to you and everyone. Just let go. See yourself as being in control of turning over all your decisions to Me. For your happiness, that is your job. That will allow me to deliver on God’s promise for your perfect happiness. I stand at your door with all God’s gifts to present to you. You need only open the door. Just let go.


Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Stop leading and follow. For in following, you always walk in truth. Your safety is assured. Look not at outcomes. Stay in this moment. Know that all is provided and as you follow, others learn by your example. Words are not required. The Light of Spirit enlightens the Sonship. It is seen in all your brothers and sisters as you look through Spirit’s eyes. Just follow and all peace is yours.


Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
  Having no private thoughts means having total honesty. Honestly accepting your oneness with all your sisters and brothers. You realize there is no specialness. No one is better than another one and you are all connected. When one is totally connected to your Self, there is no fear in sharing your thoughts with anyone. There is no fear at all, only Love. You keep nothing to your little self, and you share everything from the Higher Self. “There are no private thoughts” means allowing yourself to be free from anyone else’s opinion or judgment. It doesn’t matter. If you just get that: It doesn’t matter. Be honest with yourself when looking in the mirror and see only the beauty that you are. You are one of God’s holy children. Accept your oneness with everyone.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Today let yourself remember your true Home. Let yourself remember that in truth you rest in God eternally. You are eternal Spirit in the one Mind of God. Let yourself remember this frequently today. Stop and let yourself remember the truth.

Here and Now

Holy Spirit to Mary:  It is time once again to remember that there is no future and there is no past. Only the eternal present is true. Let yourself remember that in truth you are in Heaven now. Love is. God is. And then we cease to speak.


Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Peace is now; there is no other time. Peace is here; there is no other place. All attempts to seek outside here and now are directed by the ego tenet: Seek but do not find. What you truly want is here and now. Fantasies can distract you and block your awareness that you have everything you want and need, but they cannot change the fact that you have it right now, right here.

Forgiveness is very simply the letting go of distractions, the relinquishment of seeking where you canot find. Rest in Me. As you recognize your attempts to seek beyond the here and now, bring them to Me. Release them to Me and I will help you find what you really want, what you already have. This practice will lead you out of the sense of lack and vulnerability to the strength and completion given you by God. It is this you want to remember and it is this I am here to help you recognize as yours.

Healing Comes to the Quiet Mind

Robert: When I remember Who I am, I look on a world where everyone is my friend. Apparent behavior does not change my recognition of them as my brother in God. What is Love cannot change. Appearances come and go like passing clouds, but the certainty of Love is changeless. When I remember Who I am, I am at peace, because I rest in Love’s changelessness. In the strength of Love I know I am safe. There is nothing to defend and I welcome, with outstretched arms, the Love of God in everyone. Nothing else is there. All judgment has ceased and I stand in the oneness of Love.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
Healing comes to the quiet mind. Your job is to let all wandering thoughts be healed by the Light that the Holy Spirit brings. Your willingness to let the Light come brings with it peace and quietness that heals all the false ideas that enter your mind.

Let your mind quiet today. There is a place in you where all healing lies. You can go to that place any time you choose. The choice is yours. Let that time be now. In quiet is every problem quietly resolved. Let the Holy Spirit do Its healing work by allowing your mind to quiet. Handing every thought to the Holy Spirit to be undone is how quietness is achieved.
