Making Way for Happiness

Judgment always makes us unhappy. It can only seem possible when we believe there is something separate from us. Judgment is impossible in oneness. Love created us perfectly happy in perfect oneness. If we want to experience the perfect happiness of our true Nature, we must turn over all judgment to the Holy Spirit, Who knows how to judge truly.

The fundamental principal of awakening that we must understand and apply to all things in the world is that we do not know what anything means. As we accept and apply this, moment by moment, we open our minds to the true meaning offered us by the Holy Spirit. We become open minded to let our judgment be replaced by His. As we do this, the Holy Spirit shows us the Light of Love that is behind all appearances. This Light shines away the shadows of separation and reveals the unity we have with All That Is.

Today is another wonderful opportunity to let our minds be healed by turning over all judgment to the Holy Spirit with willingness to receive His in place of ours. This is the journey of awakening. It is the journey to perfect happiness. It is worth the vigilance to pay attention to our thoughts and be willing to be shown the way of Love.

Returning to Awareness of Oneness

Behold the Guide your Father gave you, that you might learn you have eternal life.… Your inheritance can neither be bought nor sold. There can be no disinherited parts of the Sonship, for God is whole and all His extensions are like Him.

The Atonement is not the price of your wholeness, but it is the price of your awareness of your wholeness.… Yet you must invest in [the Atonement], not with money but with spirit. For spirit is will, and will is the “price” of the Kingdom. Your inheritance awaits only the recognition that you have been redeemed. The Holy Spirit guides you into life eternal, but you must relinquish your investment in death, or you will not see life though it is all around you. (A Course in Miracles, T-12.IV.6:1,7-8;7:1,3-6)

Returning to the awareness of oneness requires the relinquishment of our investment in separation from God and our investment in death. We return to our awareness of oneness as we let go of our false ideas of separation.

In oneness there are no bodies; there are no differences. There is no time and space. It is only our inner Guide That can return us to the awareness that we are still one in the Mind of God. We are whole, perfect and complete because we are one with all Love. In truth we are not born into a separate body in a world of separate forms.

We are eternal spirit and our real life is changeless and eternal. All our needs are met because we are eternally complete in God. We are united in the one Spirit of Love. We cannot disinherit ourselves from our real Life, but we can make ourselves unaware of It.

We now open to the Holy Spirit within, Who gently guides us back to awareness of our eternal Home in God. With Holy Spirit, we see past the ego’s illusions to the Truth that we remain as God created us — one perfect Love, eternally.

We Were Created Happy

A Course in Miracles, Workbook Lesson 101 tells us that God’s Will for us is perfect happiness. That must mean that if we are not happy, we are denying God’s Will. The dream that comes from the belief in separation is the denial of God’s Will. Curiously, most of us are afraid to accept God’s Will because we believe that we will have to give up something valuable, to sacrifice something. This is only because we believe that we can make or do something in the world that will make us happy.

Yet if we honestly look at our life experience, we have to admit that anything that made us happy with circumstances in the world never lasted. If it’s not eternal, it is not real. Thus seeking for happiness in the world is looking for it in the wrong place.

To experience perfect happiness we need to stop looking for it where it cannot be found. We need to let go of our belief that separation could really happen. As we let go of this belief, we let go of a world of separation that comes from this belief. Judgment maintains separation. Forgiveness is how we let go of the belief in separation.

The practice of bringing every judgment, every interpretation, to the Holy Spirit with willingness to accept His judgment in place of ours clears the way for the experience of perfect happiness. Clearly, the experience of perfect happiness is worth the vigilance to let Holy Spirit be in charge of all our thoughts and all our doing.

Today is another day of vigilance for God and His Kingdom. It is a day for further clearing the way to let perfect happiness be our experience.

Observing the Ego Mind with Our True Self

We can realize that we are not the ego thoughts that are in our mind. Even though we have been “thinking” these thoughts for quite some time and have thought these were our real thoughts, we can see these thoughts in a new light. We can recognize ego thoughts and see that they are false ideas.

We have within us a Source of Inner Light That can help us see everything in our world of separation differently. We have within us a Source of Light and Love That can transform the way we see the world. Today it is our practice to open to our true Self and let It guide all our seeing and all our doing.

We ask our Source to shine a Light on every ego thought, every ego fear that resides in our mind. We accept the peace that naturally comes with this practice of seeing the world through our true Self’s eyes. We feel the peace… We feel the safety… We listen and receive the inspiration from our true Self all through the day… We welcome our inner Comforter and the wisdom we receive that is not of this world…

This is what today is for. We receive the lessons as they come, enabling us to see the world differently. We hand over our ego judgments gladly, knowing that handing them over brings us joy beyond measure. We are so grateful that this is our opportunity for today.

See Only Love for That Is What You Are

We want to remember our true Self, Which God created one with Him in Love. This Self can be seen in every brother, who is one with our Self. Because we have taught ourselves to believe that we are a separate self, we need help to look past this false image.

Today we dedicate to holding our minds open to the Holy Spirit’s vision, which always looks past the meaningless illusions to the unified Self that Love created. With His help, we see past appearances and experience the comfort and sense of completion that comes as we recognize the innocence and Love in all our brothers.

As we join with the Holy Spirit, all our doing is guided by the Him Who uses all the things in the world to reflect God’s Love. This is our practice for today.

Accepting Holy Spirit’s Bridge to Peace

To be at peace we need to be willing to accept and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit’s purpose to translate the certainty, safety and peace of God into forms we can experience and understand in the dream of separation.

The ego interprets every situation in terms of how it may affect the body and our individual identity. The Holy Spirit knows that we are neither the body nor an individual identity. But He understands that we believe that we are an individual body, separate from all others. His job is to bridge between the truth of what we are and God is and the belief we hold in our false identity.

Today we dedicate our willingness to practice opening to Holy Spirit’s vision and interpretation of Truth. Holy Spirit will provide a bridge we can follow out of the false world and return to awareness of our one true Self. As we follow the Holy Spirit’s bridge, we make way for the certainty and peace of God to fill our awareness. We make way for God’s Love to be expressed through us as our vision is opened to the recognition of our brothers as one with us in Love.
