Bringing Awareness of Oneness to All Minds

You are one Self, united and secure in light and joy and peace. You are God’s Son, one Self, with one Creator and one goal; to bring awareness of this oneness to all minds, that true creation may extend the allness and the unity of God. You are one Self, complete and healed and whole, with power to lift the veil of darkness from the world, and let the light in you come through to teach the world the truth about yourself. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.95.12)

The truth is we are all the same Spirit of Love, and this can never change. Our prayer today is to welcome awareness of the truth and extend it to all equally. This healing practice brings peace of mind because it releases all conflict. It is impossible to be in conflict within our one Self. It is the unity of the one Self we share that we would recognize today.

Giving Our Thoughts to God

Father, I give You all my thoughts today. I would have none of mine. In place of them, give me Your Own. I give You all my acts as well, that I may do Your Will instead of seeking goals which cannot be obtained, and wasting time in vain imaginings. Today I come to You. I will step back and merely follow You. Be You the Guide, and I the follower who questions not the wisdom of the Infinite, nor Love whose tenderness I cannot comprehend, but which is yet Your perfect gift to me. (A Course in Miracles W-pII.233.1)

This prayer is very comforting. To say it and mean it is to have complete release from trying to make and control the world around us. Releasing all our own thoughts that exclude God is how we make way for the recognition that we are in Heaven now. There is no other place we could ever be.

Our practice today is to give all our thoughts to our loving Father. He welcomes them and knows what to do with them. And in return, He gives us His only eternal Thought of Love. This one Thought answers every need we think we have. It returns us to the Truth we are. And we give thanks.

Remembering the Eternal Present

Love is in us all eternally, for Love is What we all are. Our one real need is to return to this awareness of Love’s eternal presence. In this awareness we see that giving and receiving are the same. Here we know that as we extend Love, we are receiving Love. Here are Holy Spirit’s gifts of peace and inner joy received.

Today’s practice is dedicated to following Holy Spirit’s lead in accepting and extending our one true Identity as Love. Letting go of our own agenda and following, minute by minute, is how we return Home and remember that every brother is eternally at Home in God with us. Heaven is now. This practice redirects our attention from the past to the eternal present. It is here that we remember our true Identity.

Letting How We See Everything Be Corrected

How can you tell when you are seeing wrong, or someone else is failing to perceive the lesson he should learn? Does pain seem real in the perception? If it does, be sure the lesson is not learned. And there remains an unforgiveness hiding in the mind that sees the pain through eyes the mind directs.

…let us think about all things we saved to settle by ourselves, and kept apart from healing. Let us give them all to Him Who knows the way to look upon them so that they will disappear.

This is the lesson God would have you learn: There is a way to look on everything that lets it be to you another step to Him, and to salvation of the world. To all that speaks of terror, answer thus:

I will forgive, and this will disappear.

To every apprehension, every care and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. And then you hold the key that opens Heaven’s gate, and brings the Love of God the Father down to earth at last, to raise it up to Heaven. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.193.7:1-4;11:4-5;13:1-5)

Pain and fear are not natural. They are simply the effects of hanging on to a false image of ourselves. The joy of Heaven is available to us in every moment. We simply need to be willing to turn over our false ideas about what we are and what everyone is to the Holy Spirit. When we are willing, He will show us how to see beyond the false image, the false belief, to the truth.

Pain and fear become valuable signals that show us where there is a need to turn over our perception for His loving correction. We can experience peace and happiness in our lives. We need only be willing to turn every disturbance over to the Holy Spirit for Him to help us forgive and the disturbing perception will disappear.

Today we will be mindful of the signals that show us the need for forgiveness and bring them to the Holy Spirit to help us see truly.

Remembering Christ in Everyone Brings Gratitude

We will remember Him throughout the day with thankful hearts and loving thoughts for all who meet with us today. For it is thus that we remember Him. And we will say, that we may be reminded of His Son, our holy Self, the Christ in each of us:

I am as God created me.

Let us declare this truth as often as we can. This is the Word of God that sets you free. This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven, and that lets you enter in the peace of God and His eternity. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.110.11)

Whenever we truly forgive, we always experience gratitude. Forgiveness clears away the barriers to Love’s presence. Gratitude is an attribute of Love, so when barriers to Love are let go, gratitude is inevitable.

With the practice of reminding ourselves that we are God’s Son and we remain as God created us, we open our hearts to Love’s gratitude. We see our brothers without the clouds of guilt that would hide the Love, and see the Love we are reflected back to us. As we see this magnificent gift in our brother, gratitude is inevitable.

Today our practice is to remind ourselves frequently that we are as God created us. And as we see a brother or think of him, we will also hold the thought, “You are as God created you.” And it will be a day of happy joining.

Following God’s Plan for Happiness

God’s plan for salvation works simply because, by following His direction, you seek for salvation where it is. But if you are to succeed, as God promises you will, you must be willing to seek there only.

Ask Him very specifically:

What would You have me do?
Where would You have me go?
What would You have me say, and to whom?
(A Course in Miracles W-pI.71.5:1-2;9:2-5)

This lesson reminds us to pause frequently to pay attention to our inner Teacher, Who knows the way to true and everlasting happiness. Pausing frequently puts out the welcome mat for the Holy Spirit to be heard. It brings us into alignment with the Love, peace and joy of our true Identity as Love and nothing else.

Letting our inner Teacher guide us in what to do, where to go, what to say and to whom is the fast track to happiness and peace. No other way will really work. Making plans of our own for what we think will bring us happiness only delays the experience of God’s limitless joy, His gift to us, His Son. Today’s practice is to remind ourselves to ask these three important questions frequently throughout the day.

Listening to Our Appointed Friend

Each day, and every minute in each day, and every instant that each minute holds, you but relive the single instant when the time of terror took the place of love.… And all of time is but the mad belief that what is over is still here and now.

Who dwells with shadows is alone indeed, and loneliness is not the Will of God. Would you allow one shadow to usurp the throne that God appointed for your Friend, if you but realized its emptiness has left yours empty and unoccupied? Make no illusion friend, for if you do, it can but take the place of Him Whom God has called your Friend. And it is He Who is your only Friend in truth. He brings you gifts that are not of this world, and only He to Whom they have been given can make sure that you receive them. He will place them on your throne, when you make room for Him on His. (A Course in Miracles T-26.V.13:1,4;VI.3)

Here we are reminded that everything in this world of time and separate bodies is but illusion. We are reminded that we have a Friend right there in our minds, waiting to lead us out of illusions to the truth.

Today our practice is to open up and pay attention to the Teacher of God within. Receiving His gifts of peace, joy and Love lifts us up out of the shadows of separation to the oneness of Love’s presence, which is everywhere. Our practice is to make room to receive His gifts today.
