Accepting What Is Given Us by God

God’s joy and peace are given us in our creation. If we are not experiencing this, it is because we are choosing not to accept His gifts. Any judgement, any unforgiveness, is a denial of God’s gift. It is a defense against our Self. This is why forgiveness is the key to happiness.

The ego is incapable of forgiveness because it is the decision not to forgive. But through the strength of God in us, His Voice can teach us to see beyond the images of the world to the Light of Love that is everywhere. Our focus today is on our willingness to be taught of our innocence and the innocence of all our brothers. As we learn this joyful lesson, we recognize our dearest Friend everywhere.

Let Love Be

To let Love be is to let your Self be. They are one in the same. To let your Self be is also to let your brother be, for you are one in that Self. There really is nothing else. We let Love be through forgiveness, by letting go of judgment.

Today our practice is to make no decisions on our own, but to let ourselves be guided by Holy Spirit’s vision throughout the day. His vision will show us the Love beyond the forms in every circumstance. As we accept His vision as our own, we let Love be.

Let Conflict Be Replaced by Peace

The memory of God comes to the quiet mind. It cannot come where there is conflict, for a mind at war against itself remembers not eternal gentleness.

Welcome your brother to the home where God has set him in serenity and peace, and dwells with him. Illusions have no place where love abides, protecting you from everything that is not true. You dwell in peace as limitless as its Creator, and everything is given those who would remember Him. Over His home the Holy Spirit watches, sure that its peace can never be disturbed. (A Course in Miracles T-23.I.1:1-2;10:5-8)

When we think we are in conflict with a brother we are letting illusions of separation be our guide. The good news is that we can choose once again. We can remember that every brother resides in God, along with us. We can remember our holy Home in God, and that God’s peace can never be disturbed. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can let conflict be replaced by peace. This is our practice for today.

Identifying with the Christ in You

Where could your peace arise but from forgiveness? The Christ in you looks only on the truth, and sees no condemnation that could need forgiveness. He is at peace because He sees no sin. Identify with Him, and what has He that you have not? He is your eyes, your ears, your hands, your feet. How gentle are the sights He sees, the sounds He hears. (A Course in Miracles T-24.V.3:1-6)

Our opportunity today is to accept the Christ Mind as our one true Identity. Doing this requires a willingness to forgive all the false ideas of individuality and separation. Forgiveness brings the awareness of the peace of God.

We want what forgiveness brings and are willing to join with the true perception that comes with the forgiving mind. Here we see that all are blessed as one, united Mind. There are no differences. We accept the miracle forgiveness brings today. We accept the one Christ Mind we all are. With this acceptance, we recognize that there is nothing to forgive; only Love is real.

Choose Quiet Listening to Truth

We have a mission here. We did not come to reinforce the madness that we once believed in. Let us not forget the goal that we accepted. It is more than just our happiness alone we came to gain. What we accept as what we are proclaims what everyone must be, along with us. Fail not your brothers, or you fail yourself. Look lovingly on them, that they may know that they are part of you, and you of them.” (A Course in Miracles W-pI.139.9)

The Voice of Truth is ever present in our minds. It is always our choice whether or not to listen to this Voice. This Voice will always speak to us of reality that is the complete opposite of everything we perceive through the body’s eyes. When we choose to follow the ego thought system, conflict and uncertainty is inevitable. But the Voice for Truth brings certainty because it always speaks of changeless Reality. There can be no doubt in what never changes.

When we choose to listen to the Voice of Truth, we choose the way to perfect happiness because it is the way of Love. Our practice today is to choose quiet listening to the Voice that will undo all uncertainty, all guilt and fear so that we can recognize the changeless, loving Self we are.

Accepting the Presence of Our One Self

To teach is to demonstrate. There are only two thought systems, and you demonstrate that you believe one or the other is true all the time. From your demonstration others learn, and so do you.…

The curriculum you set up is therefore determined exclusively by what you think you are, and what you believe the relationship of others is to you. …It is the teaching underlying what you say that teaches you. Teaching but reinforces what you believe about yourself. …the self you think is real is what you teach. (A Course in Miracles M-Intro.2:1-3;3:1,7,10)

When we let the Holy Spirit teach through us, we learn that we and all our brothers are one Self, the unified Son of God. This is a happy lesson indeed, for it brings us the joy that comes with the loving presence of our one Self. Through forgiveness the curriculum peels away the layers of guilt so that the eternal presence of Love is revealed. This is a lesson we really want to learn.

Today our practice is to focus on welcoming Holy Spirit’s happy lessons so that we can see and learn of our Self through all our brothers.
