We Choose Again

Father, we are like You. No cruelty abides in us, for there is none in You. Your peace is ours. And we bless the world with what we have received from You alone. We choose again, and make our choice for all our brothers, knowing they are one with us. We bring them Your salvation as we have received it now. And we give thanks for them who render us complete. In them we see Your glory, and in them we find our peace. Holy are we because Your Holiness has set us free. And we give thanks. Amen. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.170.13)

Today we step back and choose to look through Holy Spirit’s eyes. Here the veil is lifted. Here we see past the fear thoughts of the ego. Here we see the real world the Holy Spirit shows us. We see innocence where once we saw guilt. We see Love where once we saw fear.

We join with our brothers as we see the face of Christ in everyone. We feel safe and loved and know we, along with all our brothers, are safe in the Mind of God eternally. As we choose to see with Holy Spirit, we give thanks for all the blessings we receive.

All There Is to See Is Love

How could I think that Love has left Itself? There is no will except the Will of Love. Fear is a dream, and has no will that can conflict with Yours. Conflict is sleep, and peace awakening. Death is illusion; life, eternal truth. There is no opposition to Your Will. There is no conflict, for my will is Yours.

Forgiveness shows us that God’s Will is One, and that we share it. Let us look upon the holy sights forgiveness shows today, that we may find the peace of God. (A Course in Miracles, W-pII.331.1:5-2:2)

Forgiveness shows us that all there is to see is Love. Forgiveness is the means to dissolve the barriers that interfere with our awareness of Love’s presence. Forgiveness teaches us to recognize our false beliefs for what they are and in this recognition, we freely let them go. Because only the Light of Love is real, each time we let go of a false belief we let more of the Light of Love into our awareness. Depression diminishes, for as we accept the Love, joy comes with it. Fear fades away, for there is no conflict in the oneness of eternal Love.

If we want to be happy and conflict free, forgiveness offers it. Every moment is an opportunity to release the false beliefs that interfere with our happiness and peace. We need only let the Holy Spirit help us forgive our false beliefs — to let them go. This is our practice for today so that we may remember that all there is to see is Love.

The Light of Truth

The light of truth is in us, where it was placed by God. It is the body that is outside us, and is not our concern. To be without a body is to be in our natural state. To recognize the light of truth in us is to recognize ourselves as we are. To see our Self as separate from the body is to end the attack on God’s plan for salvation, and to accept it instead. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.72.9:1-5)

The key to our salvation, to our release from the dream of separation, is to recognize that we are not a body. The body is an ego construct carefully designed to make it seem like we are each isolated, alone and separate from our brothers, our Self and from God. The body is a defense against the Light of Truth, which would clearly show us that we remain as God created us if we allowed ourselves to see the Light.

One of the most emphasized ideas in the Course is that we are not a body. The workbook lessons have us repeat this idea many times a day for 20 days. It is an idea that is completely foreign to the world we seem to see. It is the key to release from illusion and to opening our minds to the Light of Truth that is God’s eternal gift to us, His one Son. As we learn to withdraw our identification with the body as what we are, we free ourselves from its limitations and open ourselves to the experience of the limitlessness of our true Self.

Grievances keep us focused on the “reality” of the body, holding us in a self-imposed prison. This is why forgiveness is the key that sets us free to return to the Home we never left in truth. Today is another happy day for the practice of forgiveness that we may welcome the Light of Truth.

In Gratitude We Heal

Today we open to the healing gifts of being in a state of gratitude. We are grateful for all that is truly ours. God’s Love for us is eternal as is ours for Him. We are grateful for the heavenly Help of the Holy Spirit, which brings remembrance to what we have and are in truth.

Because God has given us all of Himself, we are grateful to our inner Teacher, Who reminds us that we are still God’s Son, complete and healed in whole, shining in the reflection of His Love. We truly have nothing to fear as we allow the healing perspective of the Holy Spirit to clear away all the fearful thoughts of the ego’s false ideas.

We are grateful that we are still as God created us and that this can never change. We gratefully accept our inheritance today. In gratitude we heal.

The Goal of Truth

The Holy Spirit’s goal is always truth. He is always available to help us sort out the false from the true.

Our goal today is to open to the Light of Truth in every situation. We all are still as God created us, but the dream of separation shows us a different story. Our inner Teacher can lead us back to truth as we are willing to be open and receptive to what our real purpose is, which is to return to remembering our true Identity.

The Holy Spirit is there in our minds to return us to sanity. We have forgotten we are God’s Love and that Love is all there truly is. We would step back frequently today and remember our goal of returning to the truth. We give thanks for our inner Helper as we consistently turn to the Holy Spirit to see things truly. We are confident that the Help is there, and remember our goal of truth all through the day.

Peace First

Our prayer for today is to open to and receive Holy Spirit’s peace… In this holy place of receiving Holy Spirit’s peace, the Light of understanding comes with it… We are able to remember that we are safe, we are innocent, we are loved, we are Home…

We follow peace as it leads us in each now moment… We are gentle with ourselves and others… We take fear thoughts to the Holy Spirit to receive a correction in our perception…

We gratefully allow the Holy Spirit’s gift of true perception to undo our belief in being separate from Love’s Presence… As we continue throughout the day to choose peace first, we are filled with gratitude for the gifts peace brings with it.

Accepting Help from Beyond the Dream

Every day seems to be filled with decisions to make — what to say, what to do, where to go, what to buy, what to believe. The world was made to be complex to make it seem real. It seems to be that there are many influences from outside of us that can affect us.

The Course is telling us that we are the dreamer of the dream. The seeming complexity is coming from our own mind based on the belief that we have succeeded in separating from our brothers and our Source. We are told that this is not true. We remain at one with our Source as we were created.

In the dream it seems inconceivable that all the things that appear to happen are coming from our mind, but that is because of the self deception that is built into the dream. The fact that we are the dreamer is good news. It returns the power to change the dream back to us.

The first step in awakening is the recognition that we are the cause of what we experience in the dream. The next step is to ask for Help from beyond the dream to help us change our dream. This Help will teach us how to forgive ourselves and the external forces that seem to work against us by showing us their unreality.

The dream can never show us the truth because of what it is. But if we are willing to turn to the Help that is the Voice for Truth, we are guided to a gentler dream of forgiveness, which clears the way for the Light of Love to shine through. This dream of forgiveness is peaceful and happy. When our forgiveness is complete, it is a simple, joyous step to Heaven, where we are truly at Home.
