Being Truly Helpful

Our desire is to be truly helpful. From the perspective of a separate self-identity, we do not know what true helpfulness is. Our limited perception blinds us to how our choices affect everyone. Thus to be truly helpful, we need to be consistently willing, with an open mind, to receive Holy Spirit’s guidance moment by moment.

We start the day with that intention. We maintain an open mind by being vigilant for peace and frequently asking for help to see as the Holy Spirit sees and to respond to our perceptions as the Holy Spirit would respond. This is our practice for today.

We Let Holy Spirit Lead Us to Truth Today

If you would learn what the Holy Spirit would teach, just this willingness, and the commitment it engenders, must be developed. Your mind is based on illusion, your identity depends on it, your experience is shaped by it. Mind is constantly busy and, through its habitual and unconscious tendencies, is maintaining and perpetuating an illusory world and identity. Nothing less than a commitment that is continuously active, and an unceasing desire for Truth, will provide the willingness through which illusion is undone and the mind made ready to welcome Truth. The Holy Spirit needs your willingness; He can do nothing without it.” (From the Christ Mind, p. 210)

Today our focus is on letting Holy Spirit heal our minds… Today we are willing to step back frequently and welcome the Holy Spirit in…. We follow Holy Spirit’s lead… We receive Holy Spirit’s peace… We let ourselves be carried through the day, deciding nothing on our own… We make room for Holy Spirit’s healing Light… We want healing more than we want the ego’s illusory stories of separation and differences.

Today our highest priority is to let our minds be healed by the Holy Spirit. We let go of control. We let Holy Spirit be the Teacher and we are the student. We are willing to be brought to the Truth that nothing has happened to change God’s one Son. Only Love is real and we give thanks that this is so.

Peace Carries Us Home

Peace is like an eternal spring in our minds. As we connect with this peace, it carries us gently toward the remembrance of our Self, the eternal extension of God’s Love and peace.

Today we will focus on maintainng our connection with the flow of peace and let ourselves be carried through the day in gentleness and Love.

You Are as God Created You — Now

Salvation requires the acceptance of but one thought;—you are as God created you, not what you made of yourself. Whatever evil you may think you did, you are as God created you. Whatever mistakes you made, the truth about you is unchanged. Creation is eternal and unalterable. Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God. You are and will forever be exactly as you were created. Light and joy and peace abide in you because God put them there. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.93.7)

We are being asked to let go of identifying with the mistakes we think we have made and accept that we are as God created us. We are being asked to stop insisting that we are right and God is wrong. We are assured that the Light and joy and peace God gave us as He created us with His Love is ours eternally.

Because God is eternal and changeless, His creation is eternal and changeless. No matter whether we think we’ve made a mess of this dream life or even think it’s pretty good, it has nothing to do with what God created.

Beneath all the images of the dream world, we remain as Love created us, and Light and joy and peace abide in us. We can count on this, no matter what appears to be happening in our day-to-day experience. We can return to this assurance in any and every moment. And we can remember that this is true for every brother, along with us.

Today we dedicate to reminding ourselves often that we are as God Created us — now.

Let Go and Let God

Think not you understand anything until you pass the test of perfect peace, for peace and understanding go together and never can be found alone. (A Course in Miracles, T-14.12:4)

The practice of allowing our minds to quiet and open up to the healing Presence of God’s holy Light brings with it a healing river of peace that flows through our minds, cleansing our minds of the false ideas we are clinging to. This is the practice of letting go and letting God do His healing work.

When we get caught up in believing in the stories found in this world of separate bodies, we need to let go and let God to find the happiness we seek. We are still one with God, which means we are still one with all true eternal happiness, peace and unlimited joy.

When we believe in the world’s false stories, we forget our Source. We forget our true Identity. The pain of this forgetting reminds us to choose once again and return back to the healing waters of God’s peace. Letting go and letting God be in charge of minds is our practice for today.

We Live in God

We count on God, and not upon ourselves, to give us certainty. And in His Name we practice as His Word directs we do. His sureness lies beyond our every doubt. His Love remains beyond our every fear. The Thought of Him is still beyond all dreams and in our minds, according to His Will. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.165.8)

Today our practice is to remember where our real Life is. The truth is we live in God. We let ourselves remember this today. We let the peace, the sense of certainty and awareness of our well being permeate our minds today. We remain forever safe in God, along with all our brothers.

If fear thoughts come up, we let them pass by knowing that we live in God. And for this we give thanks.

Our Life Practice

Ask Him very specifically:

What would You have me do?
Where would You have me go?
What would You have me say, and to whom?

Give Him full charge of the rest of the practice period (the rest of your life), and let Him tell you what needs to be done by you in His plan for your salvation. He will answer in proportion to your willingness to hear His Voice. Refuse not to hear. (W-pI.71.9:2-8)

Our practice is to give our inner Guide full charge of the rest of our life. We know that this is what time is for. We know that this is what will bring us the happiness and peace we desire. We know that His plan for our release from pain and suffering will work.

As we begin this new year, we intensify our willingness to accept His plan, which will bring us lasting happiness. As we let our inner Teacher guide us in all our thinking and doing, we experience more and more the joy that is God’s gift to us.
