We Are One In the Love that Created Us

Today will be a happy day as we let the Light of our one Self shine through. This Light shines through the shadows of false images and shows us the changeless Love that is the reality in all things. The certainty of Love brings peace, for we know that we remain invulnerable in this Love. We see the Love we are reflected back to us as the Light of our Self shines forth from within.

But if we identity with being a separate self, a body with private thoughts disconnected from other bodies, fear and guilt will occupy our minds. Happiness is impossible because we have denied our unity with Love. We feel empty, alone, in need of defense to protect our little kingdom that we have set aside for ourselves alone. It is impossible to deny our true Self and not feel a sense of loss and depression.

But this need not be. The Light of our Self always remains with us. We only need to be willing to give It our full attention and we will again remember that we have everything we need, given us by our Creator. We remember that we are one in the Love that created us and remains in us and as us.

Today we practice giving our attention to the heart of Love within and seeing that It unites us with all our brothers in our Source.

Our Prayer to Awaken to Our Home in God

Our prayer today:
Holy Spirit, today we are willing to let You decide all things on our behalf. Be our Interpreter, that we may see beyond our past to the truth in the present. Be our Light, that we may see through the shadows of fear and guilt. Be our strength that reinforces our little willingness to follow Your lead on our journey Home. We give thanks that You are ever present in our minds with the purpose of helping us heal our mistaken beliefs and awaken to our Home in God.

We Are One in God’s Love

Right now we are one in God’s Love. It is not off in the future. Our Identity is still Love, and that will never change. Our dreams of time and space cannot change our one, true Identity.

It is very helpful for us to return to the truth as frequently as possible as we go through our day. In Truth, we are not separate bodies. We were not born as separate individuals and we do not die. We have not changed ourselves into something that God did not create.

That is why the Course encourages us often to remind ourselves, “God is but Love, and therefore so am I” and “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”

The world of separate bodies appears so real to us as we look out though the ego’s mechanism for seeing illusions of separation. To wake up from this dream of separation we are encouraged to return to the truth that we are still eternal Spirit and never could be a weak and vulnerable separate self that suffers and dies. God did not create a world such as this. God is not cruel and would never create a world of guilt, suffering and loss.

In ACIM we are encouraged to remember the truth of our beingness in God. We are eternally safe in God, no matter what dreams we may dream. We are still innocent because nothing has really happened to change God’s one Son. It is helpful to remember this about ourselves and every brother.

The truth is we are eternally one in God’s Love. Opening to the truth frequently as we go through our day lifts us up and carries us past all the fearful stories found in the dream of being separate from God. As we are consistently willing to return to the truth, we are brought to our inner place of peace, happiness and joy. From this place we are grateful that separation could never be real. We are so grateful to find out we could never be separate from God’s Love. We rest eternally in God and we are thankful that this is so.

Let the Holy Spirit Lead the Way

Great peace comes with relinquishing all decisions to the Holy Spirit. Trying to make decisions based on limited information and myopic vision that cannot see the future nor comprehend the effects any decision may have on the world is exhausting and fearful. We try to rely on limited past experiences and research other people’s experiences, but still our decisions bring fear with them, for we know that they are based in uncertainty.

The Holy Spirit has no limitations, being one with God, All That is. To relinquish all our decisions to His infinite Knowledge is to choose the certainty of changelessness. What is changeless is wholly peaceful and invulnerable. The truth in us is changeless.

As we practice letting the Holy Spirit decide all things on our behalf, we open the way to the experience of God’s perfect peace. The strain of trying to be on our own, separate from God, fades away. As we let Holy Spirit lead, we experience His certainty in our minds. We experience the Love that is His message to us, given by God.

Today we practice stepping back and letting Holy Spirit lead the way.

What Do We Really Want?

All we really want is the peace of God. We cannot find it in the world because the world is the denial of our oneness with God. But we have a Guide in our mind Whose purpose is to remind us and lead us back to the awareness that we are eternally in God, in His peace and in His Love.

When we get wrapped up in the activity of the world and blindly follow the automatic responses we have learned in the world, we feel disconnected from God’s peace. To reconnect we need to pause and step back from the activity in our minds. Then relax and ask for the help of our Inner Guide to reconnect with peace and open to the vision that shows us the truth beyond the images we seem to see.

Today our practice is to walk lightly in the world, being mindful of our thoughts and remembering to let our inner Guide be our Interpreter and Leader on the way to God’s peace. This is all we really want.

We Receive and Extend God’s Peace Today

In order to extend the blessings of God’s peace, we must first receive it. Our practice for today is to open our minds to the loving Light of God’s peace and extend it everywhere. This is how we receive God’s blessings and extend it to the world. This is how we can be truly helpful.

As we consistently practice receiving God’s peace all through the day, our perceptions are transformed. We see the world anew through Holy Spirit’s eyes, because with God’s peace comes Holy Spirit’s understanding. Our minds are purified. Along with God’s peace comes gentleness and patience. We remember we are safe and everyone is safe in God’s holy Mind.

We receive and extend God’s peace today.

I Will There Be Light

Our opportunity today is to choose mind healing with the Holy Spirit in charge. The Holy Spirit knows how to heal our minds; we do not. Giving time to the Holy Spirit to use for His purposes is our highest priority today. We do this by letting our mind quiet and being willing to listen to the healing inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

When we truly will with the Holy Spirit, the Light of peace and joy automatically returns to our mind. In truth we are one with the mind of the Holy Spirit. If we do not experience our oneness, it is because we are blocking it from our awareness. We can choose once again, right now, to will there be Light. This is Holy Spirit’s invitation to join with us and bring Its healing perspectives. This is our practice for today.
