Accepting Holy Spirit’s Gentle, Forgiving Dream

You are the dreamer of the world of dreams. No other cause it has, nor ever will. Nothing more fearful than an idle dream has terrified God’s Son, and made him think that he has lost his innocence, denied his Father, and made war upon himself. …God willed he waken gently and with joy, and gave him means to waken without fear.

Accept the dream He gave instead of yours. It is not difficult to change a dream when once the dreamer has been recognized. Rest in the Holy Spirit, and allow His gentle dreams to take the place of those you dreamed in terror and in fear of death. (A Course in Miracles, T-27.VII.13:1-3,5;14:1-3)

Judgment is hazardous to our health. Judgment denies the Source of health — the Love and peace of God. Judgment proclaims our isolation and makes the world appear to be outside of us. And judgment maintains guilt in our mind, keeping us imprisoned in a self-made world of fear.

This need not be. If we are willing to let Holy Spirit take over the role of judge, He will clear from our minds all the mistaken perceptions that hold guilt in place. With His help, we will forgive ourselves and our brothers for the perceived errors that seemed to justify attack and defense. As we accept Holy Spirit’s help, dreams of judgment are replaced by gentle, forgiving dreams, which let the Love of God shine through. Forgiving dreams lift the veil that hides the Love we are from our awareness.

Our practice today is to let Holy Spirit judge all things on our behalf. His simple judgment will teach us what is true and what is false, so that we may easily lay down the false.

Forgiveness — Letting Go of Guilt

The attraction of guilt produces fear of love, for love would never look on guilt at all. It is the nature of love to look upon only the truth, for there it sees itself, with which it would unite in holy union and completion. As love must look past fear, so must fear see love not. For love contains the end of guilt, as surely as fear depends on it. Love is attracted only to love. Overlooking guilt completely, it sees no fear. Being wholly without attack, it could not be afraid. Fear is attracted to what love sees not, and each believes that what the other looks upon does not exist. Fear looks on guilt with just the same devotion that love looks on itself. (A Course in Miracles, T-19.IV.A.10:1-9)

Love is ever present in our hearts and minds. We are unaware of Love when we harbor guilt. This guilt is inevitable when we see ourselves as separate and alone, because that perception comes from the belief that we have separated ourselves from Love, our Source.

Love is closer than our hand. We recognize Its presence when we forgive, let go of guilt. The daily, moment by moment practice of bringing all our perceptions to the Holy Spirit with willingness to see as He sees is how we remove the barriers of fear that hide the eternal Presence of Love. Love is always there to be experienced now.

The practice of forgiving is a practice that returns us to the happiness and peace that the Love of God offers us. If we want to be happy, if we want to experience God’s Love, if we want to feel safe and at peace, the practice of forgiveness will bring all of these to our awareness. Today is another happy day of practice.

We Open Our Minds to God

We open our minds to receive God’s gifts today. We are willing to receive God’s gifts of peace and happiness. We let a sense of well being and safety fill us up to overflowing.

We practice hourly through the day renewing and refreshing our connection to God. We let our communication be strong. We are committed to listening and receiving God’s gifts all through the day.

We let our minds be inspired in all our doing, knowing that God goes with us wherever we go. We let today be a happy day filled with God’s Love and peace and joy. For this we give thanks.

Remembering Heaven

In truth, everyone in the world is our sibling, created equally by Love and as Love. If there are some whom we find difficult to see as Love, it is because we are seeing them and ourselves as false images.

The Truth in us will always see the Truth in everyone. But, when we identify with the ego false idea, we will see the false in others. Everyone we see as not Love is reflecting back to us the lack of Love we see within ourselves.

The antidote to this perceived lack of Love is forgiveness. Every seeming irritation, disturbance, pain, guilt or fear is offering us an opportunity to bring it to the Holy Spirit in our minds. He will shine His Light upon it, dispelling the shadows of false ideas and revealing the loving Light that is everywhere.

This moment-to-moment practice opens our hearts to God’s gifts of Love and peace and joy. It leads us to our remembrance of Heaven, which we never really left.

You Are So Blessed

You receive the fruits of God’s blessing when you give the fruits of God’s blessing. The fruits of God’s blessing are Love, peace and joy.

As we open our minds to receive these gifts, we are filled with the awareness that we have all Love, all peace and all joy to give. The more we give these gifts away, the more our awareness of these gifts we have increases.

Today it is our opportunity to realize how blessed we truly are. We take the time to remember how truly blessed we are with God’s blessings of Love and peace and joy. We know these gifts cannot be contained. They are to be given to everyone. We joyful see that our one true function is to extend God’s blessings to the world.

Remembering Our One Self

You are one Self, united and secure in light and joy and peace.

You are one Self, the holy Son of God, united with your brothers in that Self; united with your Father in His Will. Feel this one Self in you, and let It shine away all your illusions and your doubts. This is your Self, the Son of God Himself, sinless as Its Creator, with His strength within you and His Love forever yours. You are one Self, and it is given you to feel this Self within you, and to cast all your illusions out of the one Mind that is this Self, the holy truth in you. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.95.12:1;13:2-5)

Our one Self is Love and nothing else. We can never be without Love in truth. If we feel lack of Love in any way, it can only be because we believe we are not our one Self. We believe we have succeeded in separating ourself from the Love we are. We release ourselves from this mistaken belief through forgiveness.

Each time we bring a thought or perception that disturbed our peace to the Holy Spirit and let Him correct our mistaken belief, we more clearly see past the veil that hides our one Self from our awareness. Today our practice is to remember that anyone we meet or think of is our one Self, united with us in the Love of God. As we remember this, we welcome peace and experience more fully the joy of our one Self.

We Are the Same Love

In this world it may appear that there are differences in love. It appears as if love can come and go and change into different forms. All this is the ego’s way of interpreting what Love is.

In truth, we are all the same Love, and everyone is included equally in the united Love we are. God has shared all of Himself with everyone equally. Inherent in God’s Love is true equality, true union, true sharing of All That Is with all.

Today our practice is to recognize the reality of everyone as Love and nothing else. In that recognition, we learn that we are Love and nothing else. This is accepting the truth and extending the truth to everyone we meet or think of.

This is how we heal and are healed today. This is how we serve as Love’s messenger today. We remember the truth and see the truth in everyone. We let the veil of separation be lifted and accept the miracle that shows us Love is everywhere equally and eternally.
