Memorial Day

Holy Spirit to Robert:
You are blessed, for you were blessed in your creation. If you do not feel blessed, you are simply denying the gift that Love gives you eternally. Accept Love’s gift. It is yours because God wills that It be yours. Accept Love’s gift by giving It. As you let Love guide all your perception, you give Love’s blessing and receive It as well. Let the Love in you join with the Love in all your brothers. It is one. There are no differences in Love.

Seek to see the Love in all your brothers and disregard the images of fear and guilt the body’s eyes show you. Love and fear cannot both be true. Because God’s Will is Love, only Love can be true. It has no real opposite. Choose the truth today and illusions will fade from your sight. Choose the gift of Love today by giving It. Identify with Love today, for that is What you are.

Let this be the Memorial Day in which you remember Life not death, Love not fear. And it will be a day of peace.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
This Memorial Day let yourself remember and give honor to your Source, to universal Love. Let yourself remember and give honor to your Father in Heaven. Let your Father remind you of all the gifts waiting for you as you are willing to return to your eternal Home. Let today be a day of remembering Where you really came from. Let today be a day of remembering the eternal peace, Love and joy that is yours to return to right now.

Let this Memorial Day be memorable as you allow God to return to your mind. Let this be a day of being willing to let go of foolish fantasies of separation. Hand them all over to the Holy Spirit Who will return your gift to Him with gifts of eternal peace, eternal joy, eternal Love. Let this Memorial Day be a day to remember and give honor to your Self.

The Holy Place of Eternal Quiet

Mary:
This morning we read a very wonderful section in Chapter 29 of the Text of A Course in Miracles called, “The Changeless Dwelling Place.” Basically it was reminding me that within me there is a resting place of peace where Heaven is remembered. It encouraged me to find that resting place in me by seeing that eternal place of peace in every brother. As I see the peace of God in my brother, I see that my Identity is there along with him.

In this section, Jesus also reminds us that this is how we experience the happy dream. “The quiet that surrounds you dwells in him, and from this quiet come the happy dreams in which your hands are joined in innocence.” (T-29.V.5:4)

This is my practice for today: To focus on that holy place of eternal quiet in everyone I think of or meet today. By focusing on seeing it my brother, I find that changeless dwelling place in myself. This is how I awaken from dreams of separation. This is my practice today, and I give thanks.


Robert:
This section reminds me that I can never be without Heaven, without the peace of God, without Love. When I see lack of Love of any kind, I am seeing a false image that blinds me to the truth but could never be true. I’m grateful for the reminder that I can never really lose my unity in Love.

Today my focus is to let the Holy Spirit show me the changeless truth beyond all images; to show me the Love that is everywhere. As I allow myself to accept Holy Spirit’s vision, I recognize my Self in all my brothers as well as in me. Everyone becomes a mirror of the truth in me, a reflection of God’s Love.

Stepping Back from the Senseless Dream

Mary:
I am seeing how important it is to allow time for stepping back to remember the truth. We all are all still perfect Love as God created us and nothing has happened to change our oneness in the Mind of Love. And yet we dream of being separate from that Love, separated and alone, weak and vulnerable, and subject to the whims of time. I am seeing that it takes a lot of dedication not to get lost in these dreams. Taking all the ego’s stories to the Holy Spirit is an important practice for me every day, because as I look out through the body’s eyes, it does seem so real.

In this morning’s reading of A Course in Miracles, the part that was most helpful to me was:

This is the way salvation works. As you step back, the light in you steps forward and encompasses the world. It heralds not the end of sin in punishment and death. In lightness and in laughter is sin gone, because its quaint absurdity is seen. It is a foolish thought, a silly dream, not frightening, ridiculous perhaps, but who would waste an instant in approach to God Himself for such a senseless whim?

“Yet you have wasted many, many years on just this foolish thought. The past is gone, with all its fantasies. They keep you bound no longer. The approach to God is near. And in the little interval of doubt that still remains, you may perhaps lose sight of your Companion, and mistake Him for the senseless, ancient dream that now is past. (W-pI.156.6-7)

I find that I get lost in the “senseless dream” again and again, and often forget the dream is just a senseless whim. I often forget the Companion Who walks with me. That is why it is so important for me, several times a day, to step back remember that I am not alone. It is important that I allow time for quiet listening to my Companion, Who remembers the truth for me. It is only the Holy Spirit in my mind That brings the peace and joy that is beyond this world. Today it is my practice to let my mind quiet and receive what is mine eternally. The truth is we are one Light and there is no distance between us. There are no differences and we are all at Home in God’s perfect Oneness now. And I give thanks.


Robert:
Today my practice again is to remember that Love walks with me, always. My practice is to let Love guide all my seeing and to be my interpreter of all images and circumstances. Thus will I learn to see the truth that lies beyond all form. Thus will I learn to recognize the blessing that is mine in every moment because it is given to all of God’s one Son.

Accept God’s Gifts

Holy Spirit to Robert:
Love walks with you in every moment. Let Love guide your vision and you will see Love shining on you from all around. You will feel Its beneficent grace and calm. Nothing will disturb your peace and your happy laughter will bring joy to all.

This is your natural state. This is God’s gift to you. Would you not accept this gift in place of the images of fear that you have made? God’s gifts are ever present, yours because it is His will.

Accept this gift. There is nothing else worthy of you. Nothing else will content you. This gift is your completion, forever yours. Bring this gift to everyone in your thoughts, everyone you see, everyone you meet, and you will know that you are Home.


Mary:
My practice for today is to give the time to receive God’s gifts of peace and joy. When I think about it, why would I not give the time to receive the awesome gifts of peace and joy? Happiness is mine if I will accept it.

My job today is to accept the gifts that are being given me by God every moment. In fact, when I think about it, what could be more important than this?

The way I receive God’s gifts is to put out the welcome mat to the Holy Spirit, Who shows me the truth of Love beyond the images of this world. As I let my mind be still, there are His gifts, waiting patiently for me to accept them. Today I am given another opportunity to be open to receive and extend God’s gifts. What a happy opportunity I am being given today. And I give thanks.

Safety Lies Only in Love’s Oneness

Holy Spirit to Robert:
You who believe you are a body looking at an outside world of images cannot plan for your safety. The thought of separation that is the foundation of this world is the denial of safety. It is the denial of the certainty of Love’s oneness. Seek not for safety within the thought system of the denial of safety. Such an attempt is to follow the ego’s principle tenet: Seek and do not find.

Safety lies in what you are in truth — in Love, your true Self. What is one cannot threaten because there is no conflict within oneness. Here in oneness you will find your safety. You have never really lost it but you have blinded yourself to it by believing you are what you are not. The belief in separation is the denial of what you are. Let this belief go. It does not serve you.

Accept yourself as Love created you. This is the Atonement. This is the healing that everyone who believes they are in the world is searching for. Let every perception of danger, of loss, of uncertainty, be a reminder to turn to the memory of your Creator in your mind. Offer these thoughts to Him. Open your heart and mind to receive the joyous peace that comes with remembering the Love you are. Share this gift of Love with everyone, for in the sharing you affirm that it is yours.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
Today, decide to remember what is eternal… Open your mind to what is eternally true… Let the Light of truth shine away your belief in separation… Let yourself rest in the truth today… Only What is eternal is true.

Let Yourself Be Carried

Holy Spirit to Robert:
Let yourself be carried today. You think you are getting tired of hearing this. But that perception is merely the ego defending its territory. The ego wants you to believe you are independent of God, separate and self-sufficient. To let yourself be carried would be to admit that you are not self-sufficient. This threatens the ego.

By letting yourself be carried you are demonstrating your willingness to accept your oneness with God. Can there be a more valuable lesson than this? This thought bears repeating often, for it is the way that will carry you to the lawns of Heaven, where God will joyfully carry you across threshold to your Home. Let yourself be carried today.


Mary:
To let myself be carried today, I need to be willing to step back and be led. I need to remember that I know nothing on my own. I must let go of the past and the future and be in the present moment. To let myself be carried I need to be willing to let my mind quiet and listen. To let myself be carried I must place all trust in God and not the ego. This is my practice today — to let myself be carried.

Whose Hand Am I Holding?

Mary:
In this morning’s reading of A Course in Miracles, this is what stood out to me:

Never accord the ego the power to interfere with the journey. It has none, because the journey is the way to what is true. Leave all illusions behind and reach beyond all attempts of the ego to hold you back. I go before you because I am beyond the ego. Reach, therefore, for my hand because you want to transcend the ego. My strength will never be wanting, and if you choose to share it you will do so. I give it willingly and gladly, because I need you as much as you need me. (T-8.V.6:4-10)

My practice today is to ask myself frequently, “Whose hand am I holding right now?” I know that there are only two choices, the ego’s or the Holy Spirit’s. I can tell which thought system I am joined with by the level of peace and joy I am feeling in the present moment. If I recognize that I am not in a place of peace, I have the opportunity to choose once again. This time I join with the Hand that is always there for me to lift me out of ego thinking to return to my true nature, which is eternal peace and Love.

I give thanks for the helping Hand that is always there to help me transcend the ego when I am willing. Today is another opportunity to practice joining with the truth instead of illusions.


Holy Spirit to Robert:
The Love in you is always truly helpful because It sees everything as part of Itself. Love sees no adversaries, no competition, nothing to compare Itself with because nothing is outside of Love. Hold the hand of Love in all your doing today and you will be truly helpful.
