The Joy of Forgiveness

There is a popular cookbook called

The Joy of Cooking.

It is filled with tips and recipes for preparing food for the body.

A Course in Miracles could also be called The Joy of Forgiveness. It is filled with tips and recipes to nourish our minds to help us accept the gift of Life given us in our creation. Just as in cooking recipes that have a variety of forms and tastes, the Course offers a variety of forgiveness recipes.

We have an inner forgiveness Chef who offers us wonderful recipes to help us dissolve the barriers to Love’s Presence so that our real Life can emerge and fill our awareness. Each encounter, each experience contains ingredients we can offer to the Holy Spirit Who will use them to ‘cook up’ a delightful lesson in Love that brings joy to our hearts.

Today we dedicate to offering the ingredients of each moment to the Holy Spirit with eager willingness to receive the transformation that reveals the joyous holiness we share with all.

Learning to See the Truth in Everyone

Again and again we are reminded to make no decisions on our own. Thinking we are on our own in a world of separation means that the only choices we see are all illusions — all the same. They are really not choices at all.

The only meaningful choice is to choose the oneness of God’s Love. To do this we must be willing to accept that we are not on our own and follow the Guide Whose purpose is to show us the real choice that is before us in every moment. When we are willing, the Holy Spirit will show us the oneness of Love beyond the veil of images of separation.

With His help we can make the only meaningful decision — to decide for the oneness of Love. Every brother represents the only choice we have. We can choose to see him as a body, thereby choosing illusion. Or we can choose to look beyond the body to see him as our one Self, to see the truth.

Forgiveness is the means that releases us from choosing illusion and opens our vision to see our brother truly. Today we ask from deep within our hearts for the Holy Spirit’s help to see the truth in everyone that we may recognize the truth within ourselves.

Seeing Oneness Instead of Separation

Oneness and sickness cannot coexist. God’s teachers choose to look on dreams a while. It is a conscious choice. For they have learned that all choices are made consciously, with full awareness of their consequences. The dream says otherwise, but who would put his faith in dreams once they are recognized for what they are? Awareness of dreaming is the real function of God’s teachers. They watch the dream figures come and go, shift and change, suffer and die. Yet they are not deceived by what they see. They recognize that to behold a dream figure as sick and separate is no more real than to regard it as healthy and beautiful. Unity alone is not a thing of dreams. And it is this God’s teachers acknowledge as behind the dream, beyond all seeming and yet surely theirs. (A Course in Miracles, M-12.6.)

Our job is to not be deceived by what we see with the body’s eyes. We will be deceived if we try to interpret these images on our own. We need to ask the Holy Spirit, our true Self in our minds, to be our interpreter in all things.
The Holy Spirit is not deceived by dreams of separation.

As we practice letting Holy Spirit be our full time Interpreter, we will become aware that we are dreaming. We will learn to look past the veil of the dream to the changeless Reality that we remain Love as Love created us. Separation will be recognized as nothing and having no effect. We will recognize every brother as our one Self and we will join with each one in joyous peace. Every encounter becomes a celebration of Love as we let the Holy Spirit teach us what is true and what is false.

We dedicate today to the practice of letting the Holy Spirit be our full time interpreter.

A Day of Extra Vigilance for Peace

The Course acknowledges that while we perceive ourselves as in the world, there will be things for us to do. It gives us an approach that will let this doing be done with Love. We are to start by going to the center of peace within us and joining with that peace. This peace is the natural state of our true Self.

As we are anchored in this peace, we are open to the Holy Spirit’s guidance in all our doing through the day. We are open to His inspiration so that our doing is done with ease, gentleness and kindness, free of judgment.

Today there seems to be a lot to do. This means we need to be extra vigilant for peace so that we don’t get wrapped up in the doing and close off the inspiration that Holy Spirit is always offering.

Peace first today will bring us a day of fulfillment and happiness.

Light and Joy and Peace Are Ours

Light and joy and peace are ours, given us in our creation. We can only experience this in the present moment by letting go of all thoughts from the past. This is why forgiveness is the key to happiness.

Today is a day of vigilance for Light and joy and peace. We will bring any thoughts that do not reflect this to the Holy Spirit and welcome His loving correction, which sets us free from the past and guides us gently along the path that leads us Home. With vigilance, willingness and acceptance of Holy Spirit’s correction, today will be a day filled with Light and joy and peace.

Choosing the Light of Love

Your mind is constantly active, constantly thinking, constantly choosing, and is ruled by its past habits, tendencies and experiences. Unless corrected it will simply repeat the past and reinforce the hold the past has on the present. You must continually correct your mind in the present by being aware of its activity and consciously choosing what is true, again and again, with the help of the Holy Spirit. This constant correction is fundamental and absolutely necessary. (From the Christ, p. 93. For more information about From the Christ Mind, click here.)

Today is a day of vigilance. We want to awaken to our joyful, loving Self. We want to let go of the barriers that make us unaware of Who we are. With the Holy Spirit as our Guide, we will be vigilant for the thoughts that interfere with our experience of being as Love created us. With His help, these interfering thoughts will be released as we choose instead the Light of Love.

Seeing with Holy Spirit

If nothing but truth exists, right-minded seeing cannot see anything but perfection.” (A Course in Miracles, T-3.II.3:5)

Today our practice is to open our minds to seeing with the Holy Spirit. He will show us the truth that lies beyond the false images of the world. This brings us peace and happiness because it shows us the Love that joins us all as one. It shows us that we share the perfection of that Love. We are grateful that we have a Guide that brings us to the truth.
