Let Truth Replace Illusions

In our reading in the Workbook today, this stood out to me: “Father… I am surrounded by Your Love, forever still, forever gentle and forever safe.” (W-pII.272.1:7)

This is very comforting to me. It is helpful to remember this when things in the world seem to be disruptive. No matter what appearances the body’s eyes show me, I remain surrounded by God’s Love. The truth in me, the one true Self, cannot be disturbed because It is surrounded by God’s Love.

The part of me that experiences disturbance is a mistaken image of being separate, vulnerable and weak. This comforting sentence reminds me that this image is false. I can let it go with the help of the Voice for God in my mind.

Today I will remind myself often that I am surrounded by the quiet peace of God’s Love. This helps me hold my mind open to the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of all the images of the world. It is with this help that I will release the world from all I thought it was and remember my place in the Heart of God. And I give thanks.

There is only one Reality and that is the Reality of Love’s universal oneness. Love extends Love and nothing else. Love’s extension (God’s Son) cannot change from what Love is. My opportunity for today is to let this truth return to my mind. I do this by being open to the truth and being willing to return again and again when I let the world’s distractions replace the truth. Today I ask the Holy Spirit to replace all my illusions with the truth and let my mind be healed today.

Receiving the Light of Truth

I received a metaphorical image today that helps me understand what I need to do to awaken. It is a variation of the two pictures described in the A Course in Miracles Text.

I saw myself in a room that had two display screens. One was like a 14 inch television. It has an infinite number of channels that I can tune to to display all kinds of stories. Happy stories, sad stories, painful, dramatic, traumatic, attack and defend, isolated — the list goes on and on. I sit close to this screen and all the drama captivates my attention.

The other display dominates the room. This one I will call tele-experience. It offers me more than images. It offers me the experience of oneness and Light. If I give it my full attention, I am in joy beyond this world, deep peace that cannot be disturbed and joined in Love with all that is. It is an experience that is all encompassing. With my full attention, the display disappears and it becomes a total experience.

The part of me that focuses on the little television with all its channels of drama may look up occasionally and observe the other screen. But with eyes dedicated to seeing images, the other screen appears dull and boring because all it displays appears on the surface to be only light—no action or drama. The seeing that is dedicated to seeing images cannot take in what is offered by tele-experience.

But as I offer this all encompassing screen more of my attention, I let in more of the experience it offers. The dramatic images of the television have less appeal and are less distracting as I experience the limitless joy offered through tele-experience. The Source of the tele-experience channel is the one Self we all share. It is eternally broadcasting this experience to all because It knows that nothing is outside of It.

Today is another opportunity to direct my attention to what our true Self offers in every instant.

What is the purpose for seeing a world of separate bodies? It is to hide the light of truth. Today I practice giving the world I see a new purpose — to see the world through the Light of truth.

Receiving the Light of truth is my main goal today. And what I ask for in my heart of hearts I will receive today. The Light is always there, but the question is, am I willing to receive It? There is only one true purpose for today, and that is to let the Light of truth shine through so that I am able to see Love’s oneness beyond the images of separate forms. This brings me happiness. This brings me peace. What a wonderful opportunity today brings with it as the day is dedicated to truth.
