Accepting God’s Ocean of Love

Mary:
Everyone in the whole Sonship is an integral part of God’s one Ocean of Love. This Ocean is one and our opportunity now is to awaken to Love’s oneness. Letting this awareness return brings us peace, joy and a deep sense of well being.

Today I am given another opportunity to step back and move into the awareness of God’s one Ocean of Love, which includes everyone. In this quiet place of oneness, there is no tension, no fear and no lack of any kind. Giving time to letting the truth return brings with it the gift of true perception. In this quiet place my mind is cleansed of ego’s false ideas and I see that all is well and everyone is safe in God’s one Ocean of Love. My practice for today is to frequently allow awareness of God’s Love to heal my mind.


Robert:
In our reading of A Course in Miracles today, I was reminded that there is a quiet center within where I am at peace. This quiet center of peace is always with me. I can use it as my anchor to help me remember that Love is always with me, the peace of God is always with me. This quiet center is my Self that remains united with my Creator. The more I am willing to go to this quiet center within, the more I can bring this quietness with me for all the doings on which I am sent. This is my practice for today.

Resolving Problems

Robert:
Yesterday I read a quote from A Course in Miracles, “Trust will resolve all problems now.” This is not telling me to trust in my own strength. The Course says that if I trust in my own strength, I will have every reason to be apprehensive and fearful, because I have no strength apart from God. It is trust in Love, my Source, that will resolve all problems. There is no conflict in Love, so it is impossible for Love to have problems.

This reminds me again that my function is to let go of the barriers to Love, which are really forms of lack of trust. I let go of barriers to Love by letting go of the past, by forgiving. This is how I will open the way to see the face of Christ in all things. It is a process of learning to disregard the images my body’s senses show me and give all my regard to the vision of Love my true Self sees. This is my practice for today.


Mary:
ACIM reminds me, “In quietness is every problem quietly resolved.” Today it is my opportunity to open to the peace and quiet of the Holy Spirit to receive a change in perception. This is what time is for. This is my practice for today.

Let Peace Lead the Way Today

Holy Spirit to Robert:
Walk with Me today… Hold My hand by giving peace priority in your mind today… Where peace is, there I am…

As we walk together, I will guide you in the way of gentleness and Love. Your doing in the world will extend the Love and peace that you are. Being a place of symbols, your expression of Love will be in symbols. It does not matter if others consciously recognize the Love that is behind the symbols. The truth in them will recognize the truth in your offering. This is how your gift of Love is magnified a thousand times, and a thousand times again.

Walk with Me today… and together we will give the gift of Love that is What we are. There is nothing else to give.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
Let your doing in the world be led by peace… Let yourself remember that you are in God’s ocean of peace… Let peace fill your mind and extend to everyone in your dream of separate bodies… Let peace fill your heart and all your doing will reflect that peace… This is how to be truly helpful.

We Are All Safe in God’s Loving Light

Robert:
There is a line in A Course in Miracles that says we are far too tolerant of mind wandering. As I look back at my thoughts during the day it is clear that my thoughts wander around the ego thought system a lot. Yet I am grateful that the Course’s training program has helped me become much quicker at recognizing that I have gotten off the path that leads to healing and awakening. I am not as tolerant of mindless thinking as I used to be.

Today I dedicate to the practice of mindfulness to recognize when my thoughts are engaged in separation thinking. With that recognition I also commit to offering these thoughts to Holy Spirit with willingness to receive His perception in place of my own. This is how I will learn to look past appearances and experience the happiness that comes with the recognition that I remain Love as Love created me.


Mary:
When I find myself once again getting wrapped up in the world I see, this sentence helps me step back enough to receive the truth: “You travel but in dreams, while safe at Home.” (ACIM T-13.VII.17:7)

I find that I need this reminder frequently because as I look through the body’s eyes, limitation and lack often appear very real. As I go to the Holy Spirit in quietness, the mind healing I need fills my mind with peace. The truth is we are all safe in God’s loving Light. We cannot leave God’s heavenly Mind. We can relax now. We have been given all of God, which is all there is in truth, and we cannot disinherit what God gives. It is always there as we become willing to open to the truth.

The Purity of Love

Robert:
I remain as Love created me. I am not the image of myself that I have made that is separate, limited to a body. When I identify with this limited self-concept, I feel alone and weak, fearful and guilty, unworthy of Love. When I believe I am this self-concept, I am believing I have turned my back on Love.

A Course in Miracles is telling me that this is just a false idea. I have a Teacher in my mind Who is always ready to show me the truth of my Self. To receive this truth, I must be willing to let go of the concept of myself I have made. This seems hard to do because I have made this self-concept my identity through my belief. It seems that if I let go of this identity, there will be nothing left. I will disappear into nothingness. That is what the ego would have me believe.

But the truth is that if I let go of this false identity, what will be revealed is a Self so full of joy, so loving and so peaceful that it is beyond anything that can be experienced in the world of form. As I step back and let Holy Spirit guide me, I gradually learn that I really do want to remember that I am the Self that Love created, unchanged and unchangeable. I don’t have to keep making a limited self-image any more. I can step back and let Holy Spirit show me the purity of Love that I share with all my brothers.


Mary:
It is my opportunity today to focus on the purity of Love That is the only Reality of everyone that I see in this world, including myself. The purity of Love… I let the Holy Spirit show me again and again and again the purity of Love that is there to see as I am willing. This is my practice for today.

I Don’t Have to Keep Doing This

Robert:
I had a dream last night in which I was with some other people looking at some bodies on the ground covered with blankets. I was starting to look for more bodies and then I thought to myself, “I don’t have to keep doing this.” That is when I woke up.

This was a very powerful message to me, reminding me that I don’t have to keep making a world of separation and death. The simple answer for every perceived problem is, “I don’t have to keep doing this.” The way I stop attempting to make the world real is to take these images and perceptions willingly to the Holy Spirit. Remembering, “I don’t have to keep doing this,” opens my mind to the Holy Spirit’s healing perception. With His help I forgive or let go of the mistaken beliefs that hold the seeming reality of the world in place.

As A Course in Miracles says: “Forgiveness removes only the untrue, lifting the shadows from the world and carrying it, safe and sure within its gentleness, to the bright world of new and clean perception. There is your purpose now. And it is there that peace awaits you.” (T-18.IX.14:3-5)

Mary:
When Robert told me about his dream, and the message, “I don’t have to keep doing this,” I really resonated with it. I told him, “Let’s practice this together in the way we perceive the world during each day.” This message was very clear that we don’t have to keep perceiving separation. We can lay all false perceptions down now, if we are willing. We can support each other in this holy purpose of letting go of the idea of separation in every circumstance.

As we are more willing join with every brother in this one purpose, the Light of truth shines through more clearly than ever. We don’t have to keep maintaining the separation game. We can forgive it and lay it down for good. The truth waits eagerly for our willingness to return to our innate Oneness. Our only true purpose is to practice this forgiveness today by remembering, “I don’t have to keep doing this.”

Let the Truth Return to My Mind

Mary:
The past and the future or the eternal Present — which will I focus on? Remembering the reality of the eternal Present comes from the Holy Spirit. The stories of a past and future come from ego scripts and will always reflect the ego’s inherent belief in guilt, pain and lack. Which hand will I hold today? Do I want the experience of conflict and lack, or do I want to experience the peace and happiness of the eternal Present?

My function today is to let the past go and allow the Holy Spirit to lead me to the truth of our eternal Presence in the Mind of God. Looking through the body’s eyes, I am watching an old video that was made up to replace God’s eternal oneness. As I practice allowing the Holy Spirit to purify my mind of these false ideas today, I will once again see that these stories of separate minds are not true. Only the eternal Present is true. Only God’s eternal abundance in the Mind of Love is true. Letting the truth return is my practice for today.


Robert:
The Holy Spirit always leads me to peace. It is His guidance I choose to follow today. As I follow with an open mind, I see the Holy Spirit’s purpose applied to all things in the world. His purpose is always to show me that only Love is real. With this as His purpose, He shows me the Love that is everywhere and the calls for Love from those who may be perceiving themselves as lacking, including myself.

Today I walk in quietness with a Friend Whose gentle hand points to the path that leads me Home.
