Let Go and Let God

Today’s practice is to let go and let God… Today’s practice is to be as a little child and follow the guidance of our true Self… Today’s practice involves having an open mind — open to receiving and extending the peace and Love of our united Self… Today’s practice involves handing over thoughts that do not reflect God’s peace to be purified by the Holy Spirit…

We are grateful for the happiness and peace this practice brings to us today. This gift is guaranteed because God is Peace and His Will for us is perfect happiness.

Befriending the Holy Spirit

The extension of the Holy Spirit’s purpose from your relationship to others, to bring them gently in, is the way in which He will bring means and goal in line. The peace He lay, deep within you and your brother, will quietly extend to every aspect of your life, surrounding you and your brother with glowing happiness and the calm awareness of complete protection. And you will carry its message of love and safety and freedom to everyone who draws nigh unto your temple, where healing waits for him.

The Holy Spirit asks that you offer Him a resting place where you will rest in Him. He answered you, and entered your relationship. Would you not now return His graciousness, and enter into a relationship with Him? For it is He Who offered your relationship the gift of holiness, without which it would have been forever impossible to appreciate your brother. (A Course in Miracles T-19.IV.1:5-7;2:4-7)

The Holy Spirit’s purpose is to lead us out of the dream to the full awareness of our oneness in Love. We join with that purpose when we let the peace from deep within us flow through us and embrace everything and everyone. This flow of peace is blocked whenever we judge, so we feel lack of peace. This is why being vigilant for peace is a valuable step toward moving past it. It lets us know that we have made an obstacle to peace that needs to be let go. It is the Holy Spirit’s purpose to help us let it go.

The ego is afraid of the Holy Spirit, for it sees the Holy Spirit as a threat to its existence. When we are aligned with the ego, it seems that the Holy Spirit is asking that we sacrifice what we value. In actuality, the Holy Spirit is our only true Friend, Who will always be honest with us, showing us the deceit of the ego and its meaningless images.

It is time that we befriend the Holy Spirit as He has always befriended us. Let the Holy Spirit be our mighty Companion, Who will guide us truly to the joyful awareness that we are one with Love. Today we walk with our dear Friend, the Holy Spirit, and He will show us the Friend that is in everyone we meet.

Pausing to Receive Christ’s Vision

Behold the store of miracles set out for you to give. Are you not worth the gift, when God appointed it be given you? Judge not God’s Son, but follow in the way He has established. Christ has dreamed the dream of a forgiven world. It is His gift, whereby a sweet transition can be made from death to life; from hopelessness to hope. Let us an instant dream with Him. His dream awakens us to truth. His vision gives the means for a return to our unlost and everlasting sanctity in God. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.159.10)

We cannot give what we have not received. Today it is our opportunity to practice pausing frequently to receive the Holy Spirit’s gift of Christ’s vision. Here we see everything anew. We see with forgiving eyes and see the Light of innocence everywhere.

We are lifted up and carried to the truth. Here the veil of separation is lifted. We are reminded to see past the images of the world to the changeless truth that we remain Love and nothing has happened to change God’s one Son. We are reminded not to take the world too seriously. Our highest priority is to let the Holy Spirit wake us from the dream.

Forgiveness Brings Release

There is no death because the Son of God is like his Father. Nothing you can do can change Eternal Love. Forget your dreams of sin and guilt, and come with me instead to share the resurrection of God’s Son. And bring with you all those whom He has sent to you to care for as I care for you. (A Course in Miracles C-5.6:9-12)

Loneliness, depression, illness, lack, fear and guilt are all effects of belief in death. If we accepted without reservation that we remain at one with Love as we were created, we would experience none of the effects of belief in death. This belief is nothing more than the mistaken idea that we could ever leave the Mind of God, that we could be separate and alone.

The remedy for these painful effects is to let the Holy Spirit share His vision with us. With His vision, we easily see past all the images of the world to the one Light that is the Love of God, our Self. This is forgiveness. The Holy Spirit is kind and will accept whatever willingness we offer without imposing His perception beyond our willingness to accept it.

The daily, moment-by-moment practice of bringing all thoughts to the Holy Spirit to receive His vision that shows the truth behind the false ideas builds our willingness. Our willingness grows each time we experience the release and deepened peace that forgiveness brings. This practice is the only meaningful use of time. It is the journey of return to our true Home in Love.

Sharing Holy Spirit’s Vision

Nothing in the world can bring us the exquisite joy that is in God’s Love. God’s Love is already given us. But we don’t experience it when we seek for satisfaction or happiness in anything in the world. To make way to fully receive God’s gift, we need only be willing to withdraw all value we give to the world. The ego warns us that this would be a big sacrifice. But the truth is we give up nothing to receive everything that is real.

Our practice today is to bring all our thoughts about anything in the world to the Holy Spirit so that He may show us what He sees in them. As we share His vision, the form loses value and the true content of eternal Love shines through. With this perspective, our doing in the world becomes an extension of Love. And by this extension, we receive and give God’s perfect happiness.

Accepting God’s Gift of Peace

This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate your rest remains completely undisturbed. Yours is the rest of truth. Appearances cannot intrude on you. You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God. They will not hear another voice than yours because you gave your voice to God, and now you rest in Him and let Him speak through you. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.109.4)

As we open to God’s peace today, all the concerns of the world are lifted away. We remember we are in God and of God. He is our safety and our strength. We see that nothing really matters except returning to the truth that we are still as God created us. We remain safe as Love in the mind of Love. Image making has not changed What we are and Where we are. In truth we rest in God eternally.

All we really want is the peace of God. Since we have already been given God’s peace, all we really want is to clear away the barriers that interfere with accepting His gift. The Holy Spirit is God’s Answer, placed in our minds to help us do this clearing so that we can recognize that in truth we do rest in God.

God’s Peace Is Ours to Receive and Give

Peace will be yours because His peace still flows to you from Him Whose Will is peace. You have it now. The Holy Spirit will teach you how to use it, and by extending it, to learn that it is in you.

Learn that even the darkest nightmare that disturbs the mind of God’s sleeping Son holds no power over him. He will learn the lesson of awaking. God watches over him and light surrounds him. (A Course in Miracles T-13.XI.8:3-6;9:5-7)

It is helpful to develop the habit of responding to every fear thought by extending peace to it. When we remember to extend peace, we learn that peace is in us. Accepting the deep peace of God opens the communication link that helps us remember our Home in Heaven. As we extend the peace we receive, we join with the peace in every mind and remember our oneness.

The truth is we are all immersed in God’s ocean of peace. Peace heals our darkest nightmares as we practice letting peace in and extending it to the Sonship. Knowing God’s peace is God’s Will for us and returns us to the awareness of Heaven.
