Peace First

Learn to be quiet in the midst of turmoil, for quietness is the end of strife and this is the journey to peace. Look straight at every image that rises to delay you, for the goal is inevitable because it is eternal. The goal of love is but your right, and it belongs to you despite your dreams. (A Course in Miracles, T-12.II.5:5-7)

The ego is in constant turmoil. Being an illusion, the ego is wholly uncertain. All our thoughts that are aligned with the ego thought system bring uncertainty with them, no matter how much we try to inflate them with seeming
importance and validity.

When we choose peace, we are choosing the path to certainty because we are choosing the path to our true Self. Nothing is more certain than God and His Creation. Though the dream is filled with uncertainty, the path to certainty is always available. Just choose peace.

Our practice today is to be mindful of our state of peace and to choose peace whenever a sense of uncertainty, of turmoil, seems to be in our minds. As we accept peace, we accept the certainty of God’s Love.

Today We Quiet Our Minds and Practice Following Holy Spirit

No matter what — we practice relaxing and letting Holy Spirit be in charge… The Holy Spirit is in our mind in every now moment. Our opportunity today is to let ourselves be carried by the Holy Spirit in each now moment… Letting ourselves be carried means we do not try to do anything on our own. We are following; we are not leading. We are listening in a place of quiet to receive our guidance in the present moment…

We practice today letting ourselves be carried. We let go of the past and the future, and pay attention to how we are being guided right now.

We Open to the Light

Your Friend goes with you. You are not alone. No one who calls on Him can call in vain. Whatever troubles you, be certain that He has the answer, and will gladly give it to you, if you simply turn to Him and ask it of Him. He will not withhold all answers that you need for anything that seems to trouble you. He knows the way to solve all problems, and resolve all doubts. His certainty is yours. You need but ask it of Him, and it will be given you. (A Course in Miracles, W-Epilogue.1:2-9)

As we make opening to the Light our highest priority, we relax and follow the inner Inspiration we receive. We stick closely to this inner Inspiration and follow its flow with ease and peace. We remember we are immersed in God’s Love and have everything we need to serve God’s plan of awakening. We are filled with gratitude and peace and joy as we hold our minds open to the Light.

God’s Strength Is Ours

To identify with the ego is to identify with weakness, because it is the denial of the strength of God in us. To identify with the Love of God as what we are is to identify with God’s strength. We have but these two choices for our identity. The first is the choice for nothing; the second is the choice for Everything.

Today we will remind ourselves frequently that we are sustained by the Love of God. The Love of God is our strength. It is what we are. And what is true for us is true for every brother. If we see the appearance of weakness in a brother, we will remind ourselves that he is sustained by the Love of God, as are we.

This practice opens our hearts and minds to welcome God’s Love, to welcome our true Identity. As we remember this, we identify with God’s strength as ours.

Rise Above to See the Love

Put not your faith in illusions. They will fail you. Put all your faith in the Love of God within you; eternal, changeless and forever unfailing. This is the answer to whatever confronts you today. Through the Love of God within you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence. Tell yourself this often today. It is a declaration of release from the belief in idols. It is your acknowledgment of the truth about yourself. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.50.4)

The truth is only the Love that we all are is real. Our focus for today is to allow the Holy Spirit to be in charge of our mind. We want to see as Holy Spirit sees. We want to see past illusions to the truth that nothing has happened to change God’s one Son from the Love he is. Only this brings happiness and joy to world, including ourselves. All this happens automatically as we rise above to see the Love.

Peace on Earth. Good Will Toward All Men

The attainment of a steady and constant state of peace can be said to be the goal of A Course in Miracles. A peaceful mind is quiet, and a quiet mind easily attains the condition in which God is remembered. A peaceful mind is happy and shares its happiness with everyone. A peaceful mind is kind, for it looks on everyone as itself. Its gratitude is offered to all, for it perceives the gifts it is constantly receiving from its brothers. Love and kindness are the hallmarks of a peaceful mind, offered to all its brothers without conditions, asking nothing in return.” (From the Christ Mind, pages 202-203)

We dedicate today and every day to the practice of receiving and extending the peace of God. As our willingness to receive peace expands, the Light of our true Self shines in our mind and brings with It the awareness of what is true.

As we consistently choose to receive and extend peace, the veil is lifted and we are able to experience the real world, the world beyond illusions. The ego thought system is seen as meaningless and without effect. As we consistently choose peace, we are choosing to let Holy Spirit be our Guide. And lasting joy and happiness are the result.
