Recognizing the Truth Beyond Appearances

Letting the Holy Spirit guide all our thoughts is essential for our happiness. The ego is the denial of happiness because it is the denial of Love. We have been accustomed to following the ego’s lead, seeking for happiness where it cannot be found. Sometimes it seems that we find some happiness in the world, but then circumstances change and what seemed to make us happy goes away. This is because the ego does not know the way to happiness.

Today we again practice keeping our minds open to the Holy Spirit’s lead. We are willing to let Him be our Interpreter in each moment. He will teach us to recognize the truth beyond appearances. He will teach us to see the Love and the innocence that is always true. With this practice we will have a happy day.

Receiving and Extending God’s Love

Receiving God’s Love is my top priority… As I pay more and more attention to my top priority, I realize that God’s Love is all there is to give in truth… Inner Guidance will be there in each moment to show me the perfect way to extend the Love that I receive… I see the reflection of this Love in every person or situation I encounter… This brings deep peace…

I let the Light of my True Self shine through me today… I let it show me the Love beyond all appearances… It reminds me of my innocence and It shows me the innocence in everyone… It brings me the joy that is characteristic of Love… The quietness of Love’s peace will carry me through the day…

The Bountiful Harvest

The harvest of our forgiveness is happiness and peace. It is by our continuing practice of forgiveness that the mind is prepared to receive the bountiful gifts of our Creator. Doing our forgiveness work day by day, hour by hour, is the means by which a continuous flow of happiness, joy and peace is received and accepted. These are the fruits of our “labor.”

Today our practice is to hold our minds open to the Holy Spirit’s vision which will always show us our innocence and the innocence of everyone. With His help, we easily see past bodies and know that we are eternal Spirit and everyone is eternal Spirit. We feel safe and trust that we are being brought to the bountiful harvest that has been given.

Let Your World Be Gently Lit by Miracles

The miracle alone is your concern at present. Here is where we must begin. And having started, will the way be made serene and simple in the rising up to waking and the ending of the dream. When you accept a miracle, you do not add your dream of fear to one that is already being dreamed. Without support, the dream will fade away without effects. (A Course in Miracles, T-28.III.1:3-7)

To say, “I will there be Light,” is an invitation to the Holy Spirit for help to see past appearances to the Light that is always present, here and now. As we are willing to open to the Light, Love rushes in and washes away the false ideas that caused the appearances in the world. Where once separation was perceived, our unity is recognized. Fear is replaced by Love. Uncertainty is replaced by certainty. Sadness is replaced by joy.

Today our practice is to let the world by gently lit by miracles all through the day.

Let Holy Spirit Turn On the Light

We have been in the dark so long that we don’t always realize we are peering around trying to see in the darkness. When we are not at peace or happy, it is a clue to let Holy Spirit turn on the Light. Holy Spirit waits on welcome.

As we relax and let go, there is a natural, easy change of mind. What appeared difficult and hard is transformed into the experience of ease and gentleness. The rough seas are calmed. What appeared to be a mountain is transformed into a mole hill. It naturally feels easier to let the appearance pass by because it is recognized as meaningless.

As we learn to apply this to every circumstance where fear comes up, we learn we have a constant Companion That is ready and willing to turn on the Light in every darkened situation. We always have the Help available. It is our job to accept the Help. We do this by stepping back from our thoughts and allowing ourselves to return to a state of peace.

Turning on the Light allows Christ’s vision to transform our perception. We are able to see past the form to the truth of our unity in Love. In gratitude we accept the Help.

The End of Dreams

The end of dreams is promised me, because God’s Son is not abandoned by His Love.

The goal the Holy Spirit’s teaching sets is just this end of dreams.

Accept your Father’s gift. It is a Call from Love to Love, that It be but Itself. The Holy Spirit is His gift, by which the quietness of Heaven is restored to God’s beloved Son. (A Course in Miracles, W-pII.279.1:1;7.2:1;5:1-3)

We accept our Father’s gift by opening to the peace within and welcoming Holy Spirit’s guidance. As we do this, we see that efforting is not necessary. We let ourselves be led to the gentle vision of innocence. There we experience the quietness of Heaven. We experience the joy of joining with all our brothers in the oneness of Love.

Our practice today is to facilitate the end of dreams by seeing past images of separation to the truth. Thus will we experience the blessing of God’s Love.

Giving the Body a New Purpose

The body was made to make separation appear to be real. But now we are learning to give the body a new purpose. With Holy Spirit as our Guide, the body becomes a vehicle to be helpful in the Holy Spirit’s plan for undoing the dream. As we follow the meaning the Holy Spirit gives to the body, we heal and are healed.

Simple, uncomplicated Love takes over and we are able to see past the separated forms to the one Mind of Love that is eternally there. In truth we are all joined in that one mind of Love. It is this that we want to remember. This is our practice today.
