Forgiveness Is Our Purpose Now

And when the memory of God has come to you in the holy place of forgiveness you will remember nothing else, and memory will be as useless as learning, for your only purpose will be creating. Yet this you cannot know until every perception has been cleansed and purified, and finally removed forever. Forgiveness removes only the untrue, lifting the shadows from the world and carrying it, safe and sure within its gentleness, to the bright world of new and clean perception. There is your purpose now. And it is there that peace awaits you. (A Course in Miracles T-18.IX.14)

As we open to the Holy Spirit and ask that our perceptions be purified, He shows us the real world beyond this world. He shows us that nothing has happened to change God’s one Son. The Holy Spirit shows us that ideas leave not their source and everything we see is a projection coming from the tiny thought of separation.

As we are willing, the Holy Spirit brings us to the Light behind our perceptions. Here we clearly see their unsubstantial nature. We don’t take them so seriously as our thoughts are purified through our willingness forgive our belief in separation. We return again to the truth that we remain Love, innocent and whole. This forgiveness process is our only purpose now in our return to the memory of God.

We Rest in God

Today our practice is to carry with us all through the day the remembrance that we rest in God. Our true Identity, joined with every brother, is changeless in the peace and joy of our Father, our one Source.

We can carry this remembering of deep peace and rest through every activity on which we are led. This is our practice for today. With this practice we move past the constantly changing fluctuations of the ego thoughts to the changeless eternal Presence That is our one Reality. We let the truth of our one Reality return to our minds today. It is worth the vigilance. And we give thanks.

Seeing Beyond Appearances

This is our prayer today: Holy Spirit, help us to see with Your vision today. Help us to see past appearances in the world to the loving innocence that is the truth in every brother. Help us step away from the temptation to judge the behavior of a body and remember that no one is a body. Everyone is the free, loving extension of God’s Love, and nothing else. We are willing to be taught. We are willing to learn the lessons that lead us Home to the joy of our Creator. Amen.

Today We Celebrate Everyone’s Holiness

Today we were reminded that our holiness envelops everything we see. (ACIM WB Lesson 36) When we allow ourselves to feel this, our world feels very safe. Nothing but holiness surrounds us and everything is included in that holiness. With this recognition, there is nothing to defend against, nothing to conquer, nothing to hide.

Holiness is all there is to see and all there is to be. Peace flows through us and we welcome all our brothers with joy. As we recognize that holiness surrounds us, we recognize that we are part of this all-encompassing holiness. Nothing real is left out of holiness. This is the recognition of Heaven. Let’s celebrate our holiness together today.

We Share One Life

We share one life because we have one Source, a Source from which perfection comes to us, remaining always in the holy minds which He created perfect. As we were, so are we now and will forever be. A sleeping mind must waken, as it sees its own perfection mirroring the Lord of life so perfectly it fades into what is reflected there. And now it is no more a mere reflection. It becomes the thing reflected, and the light which makes reflection possible. No vision now is needed. For the wakened mind is one that knows its Source, its Self, its Holiness. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.167.12)

The oneness of Life is what makes death impossible. Nothing exists separate from this one Life. We have done such a good job of making up images of separation and believing they are real that death seems to be inevitable. This seeming inevitability is really the sign that, despite all our efforts to believe separation is real, we know that it is inevitable that we will realize it is not true.

It could be said that this realization is the death of the idea of death. The ego proclaims death as an end. But when we realize that death is only a mistaken idea of being separate from Life, we easily let this false idea go and return to the full realization of the Life we share with God. The Course calls this waking up from the dream of death. Waking up only seems hard to do because we value the images in the dream.

Our practice today is to hold our minds open to Holy Spirit’s vision of all things, situations and events that seem to appear to us today. As we accept His vision, we let the Light of truth in and move closer to the full recognition that we share one Life with God.

We Walk to God

Step back in faith and let truth lead the way. You know not where you go. But One Who knows goes with you. Let Him lead you with the rest.

We walk to God. Pause and reflect on this. Could any way be holier, or more deserving of your effort, of your love and of your full intent? What way could give you more than everything, or offer less and still content the holy Son of God? We walk to God. The truth that walks before us now is one with Him, and leads us to where He has always been. What way but this could be a path that you would choose instead? (A Course in Miracles W-pI.155.10:3-6;12)

We walk to God in each now moment as we step back and let Holy Spirit lead the way. We hand over our images of separation; we hand over our images of being separate bodies with differences and conflict. We hand over these foolish thoughts to let our true Self take over… We no longer try to control our dreams… We willingly hand the reins over to the Holy Spirit, Who truly knows the way to eternal happiness.

The ego’s goal is to avoid God at the cost of Truth. Today we let go of the ego’s goal and choose the goal of Truth instead. As we let go and let Truth be our Guide, we let It lighten the path ahead that leads us Home to God.

Love Created Us Like Itself

Today our prayer is to remember that we remain as we were created by God; we remain the pure Spirit of Love, along with every brother. As the pure Spirit of Love, our happiness comes from giving and sharing all the Love we are with the whole Sonship. Sharing Love’s oneness is our only function today.
