Let the Veil Be Lifted

My prayer today is to let the veil be lifted that I may be aware of the Light of Love That is always present beyond every form. The Holy Spirit brings this to my awareness as I am willing. This is why my willingness to receive Holy Spirit’s gift of vision is my focus for today.

An important part of my practice for today is to be willing is to take time out frequently to tune in to Holy Spirit’s peace and perception. Stepping back into peace and listening frequently to receive Holy Spirit’s gifts throughout the day is how I make way for the veil to be lifted. This is how I will experience a happy day of forgiveness and of peace.


There is an old song that frequently repeated the sentence, “I will follow you.” I will sing that to Holy Spirit today in my mind. The practice of following Holy Spirit is how I open my mind to let the veil of false beliefs be lifted. It is the way to happiness and peace. I will be happily singing to Holy Spirit all day today.

Awareness of Ever Present Joy and Peace

My focus for today is to allow into my awareness the ever present joy and peace of God. This is what today is for — accepting God’s joy and peace and extending God’s joy and peace. I pray that I remember this helpful focus.


If I want to be at peace, I need to let go of all judgment. Judgment is the cause of all conflict in the world. I let go of judgment through forgiveness. Within the thought system of separation, forgiveness is impossible because separation is held in place by judgment. That is why I need to offer all my perceptions to the Holy Spirit Who sees all things as one. As I am willing to receive His kind and gentle instruction, I will learn to see has He sees and lay judgment aside.

Today my practice is to accept Holy Spirit’s instruction in the way of freedom and peace.

Remembering the Peace of God

In A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 205 we read that, “Peace is my one goal; the aim of all my living here….” We all share this goal. How we think we can achieve this goal depends on which thought system we identify with.

If we are aligned with the ego thought system of belief in separation, then we will seek to organize the circumstances around us in a way that we think we will be safe and happy. We seek relationships, a place to live, a work environment, status, the “right” appearance that we think will help us feel safe and loved. Yet all this is based on arranging images that are not real and could never satisfy.

If we align with the Holy Spirit and the Thought of our oneness in God, the Holy Spirit shows us that images are meaningless. Our attention is focused on the Love that is everywhere while the images of the world are dismissed as offering us nothing.

With our attention on the Love that is everywhere, we welcome the peace of God because we are accepting the peace of our one Self. Being one, there is no conflict in this Self. We feel perfectly safe. Being Love, this Self that we are automatically extends Love without limit. In that extension of Love, we experience the Love we are.

Today I choose to give my attention to the loving vision of the Holy Spirit and learn that I truly am already in the peace of God.


My job today is to welcome God’s gift of peace and accept the quiet mind that comes with opening to God’s peace. In this quiet place I am reminded that I rest in God’s united Love eternally.

My true Identity is one With Love. This is my Home. This is where I belong. All this comes with giving the time to welcome God’s gift of peace. I am eternally grateful that peace is always there when I am willing to remember the peace of God.

Seeking Love Where It Can Be Found

Everyone in this world is seeking for Love. This is because this world is the effect of denying the all encompassing oneness of our Creator’s Love. Because of this denial, we feel that we lack Love.

Efforts to be liked, to not offend, to gain value through status, possessions, relationships, etc., are all part of misdirected seeking to find Love. Consistent with the ego’s dictum, it is seeking where Love cannot be found. All this searching comes from the belief that we have lost the Love that we are. This is impossible in truth, but belief makes the false seem true.

My prayer today is to accept Holy Spirit’s help in letting go of the false beliefs that interfere with the awareness of Love’s presence in my mind. This is forgiveness. I am grateful for the Holy Spirit’s help to recognize false beliefs for the nothingness they are so that I can awaken to the Love I share with God.


Today I am guided again to practice as frequently as possible to pause for inspiration. This pause returns me to peace, gentleness and a sense of well being. A sense of trust and the feeling that everything is all right rises to the surface of my mind.

I can relax now and receive the guidance I need in each present moment. As I follow, I am guided to be of service in a way that is most truly helpful to the awakening of the Sonship. My job is to listen and receive.

I Rest in God

I rest in God. Reminding myself of this helps me to step back when something seems to bother me or I am struggling to make something “work.” I rest in God. This thought brings rest to my mind when my peace has been disturbed. It reminds me that nothing in the world can have any affect on me in truth. It helps me recognize that if something disturbs my peace, it is only because I have temporarily forgotten that I rest in God.

Today I will remind myself often that I rest in God to help me hold my mind open to the gentle, loving lead of the Holy Spirit guiding me Home.


How can I be truly helpful? Receiving inspiration from the Holy Spirit always begins with my willingness to accept His gift of peace. As I am willing to do this, it is the Holy Spirit that shines away the false ideas that are not true. So today my practice is to consistently open, again and again, to Holy Spirit’s gift of peace. Receiving peace opens the door to extending peace to everyone I meet or even think of. From this holy place of peace, all that I need to know arises in my mind in the moment. This is my practice for today.

Making the Choice for Heaven

God is simple. God is not complex. God is changeless and is not in a constant state of flux. God is All There is.

Everything in the world of time is in a constant state of change. Nothing stays the same. It is a world of separate interests and conflict. It is the opposite of God, our Source. It is the opposite of changeless Love. It is the opposite of oneness.

I make the decision of what I am willing to be aware of in every moment. Am I willing to be aware of Love’s constant state of changeless oneness? Or am I focusing on separate bodies with separate interests, different than my own?

This morning we read A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 138, “Heaven is the decision I must make.” Here I am reminded to allow my one true Self to be in charge of my perception. This requires that I step back from the ego’s constant chatter about what everything means. This requires that I open my mind to God’s peace and changeless awareness of oneness. This is my practice for today.


Today’s lesson reminded me that the unconscious mind is a key mechanism the ego uses to hide the choices I have made so that the illusion of separation seems real to me. It makes me unaware of the choices I make in every moment to see justification for guilt and fear.

By keeping those choices unconscious, the effects of those choices appear to be happening to me. I seem to be the victim of situations and events in the world because I am unaware of the choices I made that put me in those situations.

In many places the Course tells us that we must raise all our thoughts, all our fears, all our guilt, to the Light. In the Holy Spirit’s Light, what seemed to be insurmountable obstacles are seen as no more than wisps of smoke, easily passed by as I allow the Light to return to my awareness.

Today my practice is to be alert to any disturbance of my peace and bring it to the Light of Holy Spirit to receive His vision in place of my image making.

Accepting the Love of God

Today my focus is on accepting the Love of God. The Love of God is all that there is in truth. And my job today is to accept the truth as it is.

I have believed that something else was there to see, and have suffered from my belief in the illusions of a world of separate bodies. I can be done with this if I so choose today.

This is why I have one focus: Accept the Love of God. This means that I must be willing to receive the truth. I must want the truth above all else. I must want to let go of what I think I made as Love’s replacement. I always get what I want in my heart of hearts. That is why I have just one focus today — to accept the Love of God.

Love is simple. Love is kind. Love is everywhere as I am willing to see the only true Reality.


Forgiveness is the means to accept the Love of God. God’s Love is ever present, but judgment makes me unaware of it. As I forgive and let go of substitutes for God’s Love, I see His Love everywhere. I see the radiant Light of Love in my brother shining back to me.

The images of the world fade in importance as the magnificence of Love is accepted. The world was made as a defense against Love. As I forgive, I let go of this defense. And once again I remember the quiet joy of the Self I share with all in Love.

My prayer today is to accept the Holy Spirit’s help in letting go of the barriers to acceptance of God’s Love.
