Our Prayer of Release from the Ego

Holy Spirit, I no longer want to equate myself with the ego with all its guilt and fear. I want to remember that I am Love as Love created me. Help me to see with Your vision the Love that is beyond all the images of the world.

Help me to see beyond the words and behaviors of bodies in the world to see the innocence of every brother. Help me let go of beliefs in vulnerability, limitation, lack and guilt from the past. I am willing to let them go.

I am willing to accept God’s gifts of Love and peace and joy, which are ever present, now. It is these gifts I would give today and receive the gift in return of the certainty that God’s gifts of perfect happiness, deep peace and limitless Love are mine. Amen.

Giving and Receiving the Peace of God — Now

The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. [The peace of God] pauses to caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing with it that remains forever and forever. What [the peace of God] gives must be eternal. [The peace of God] removes all thoughts of the ephemeral and valueless. [The peace of God] brings renewal to all tired hearts, and lights all vision as it passes by. All of its gifts are given everyone, and everyone unites in giving thanks to you who give, and you who have received. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.188.3)

Today we will reinforce our practice of receiving and extending the peace of God… As we receive this all-important gift from our Source, clarity and understanding come with it… Our artificial values are purified… We feel Love’s blessings wash through us… We remember we are connected as one mind… We remember that we are extending the blessings we receive… and as we give, the blessings continue to come back to us…

As we continue this practice through the day, we feel so blessed… We realize we are accepting our Inheritance… We are putting God first… We are putting Love first in the present moment… We are letting Love’s messengers return messages of Love back to us… We rest in gratitude as we continue to give and receive the peace of God in each now moment…

Receiving Love’s Messages

Love’s messengers are gently sent, and return with messages of love and gentleness. The messengers of fear are harshly ordered to seek out guilt….

The Holy Spirit has given you love’s messengers to send instead of those you trained through fear. They are as eager to return to you what they hold dear as are [fear’s messengers]. If you send [love’s messengers] forth, they will see only the blameless and the beautiful, the gentle and the kind. They will be as careful to let no little act of charity, no tiny expression of forgiveness, no little breath of love escape their notice. And they will return with all the happy things they found, to share them lovingly with you. Be not afraid of them. They offer you salvation. Theirs are the messages of safety, for they see the world as kind. (A Course in Miracles, T-19.IV.A.11:1-2;14:1-8)

Holy Spirit, we accept your messengers of Love… In gratitude, we open to receive all the happy things they find… We openly welcome their messages of Love and kindness… We remember that as we look for the Love in others, we find it in them and in ourselves… In deep thankfulness we move through the day, seeking and finding the Love that is the truth about everyone… Oh happy day!

Opening to the Quiet Mind

In quietness are all things answered, and is every problem quietly resolved.

Yet it must also be that, in your state of mind, solution is impossible. Therefore, God must have given you a way of reaching to another state of mind in which the answer is already there. Such is the holy instant. It is here that all your problems should be brought and left. (A Course in Miracles, T-27.IV.1:1;2:2-5)

Today our practice is to consistently open to the quiet Mind of the Holy Spirit… The Holy Spirit is not fooled by the fearful antics of the ego mind. The Holy Spirit knows how to return our minds to the Truth.

As we practice consistently opening our minds to receive the Holy Spirit’s inspiration in the moment, we are led to lasting and eternal happiness… We are led to help everyone be brought to the same state of mind… For this consistent Help we are eternally grateful.

Seeing Through the Eyes of the Holy Spirit

I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God.

God is still everywhere and in everything forever. And we who are part of Him will yet look past all appearances, and recognize the truth beyond them all. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.56.3:4;4:5-6)

It is our belief in the thought system of separation that keeps the door closed to the world beyond and prevents us from seeing beyond to the World of Love. We need help from beyond our belief system to open that door. This is why we need to bring all our thoughts to the Holy Spirit with willingness to let Him open the door to what lies beyond — the world of Love, safety and joy.

The moment by moment practice of putting Holy Spirit in charge of all our perceptions is how we let our mistaken beliefs be transformed. Holy Spirit’s vision shows us what is real and what is not… When we recognize the unreal for what it is, we naturally let it go… Illusions recognized have no value to us.

Our dedication today is to let the Holy Spirit, our true Self, be our Interpreter in each moment. This is how we let the door to the World of Love be opened for us.

We Accept God’s Gift of Grace

In our creation [God] gave us all of Himself, including all of His power. Thus when we chose in our insanity to misdirect that power, He could not interfere with that choice or He would be making us of a lesser order of power. We would no longer be equal in power as He created us. But by His grace, the moment we made the mistaken choice, we were given the means to undo the mistake. We still need to make the choice to let it be undone, but the means is already given. 



My heart is filled with gratitude that I have a Father so loving that He was unwilling to make me lesser than He and equally unwilling to leave me comfortless and without a means to return to Him. The Holy Spirit is His Answer to all my mistaken ideas. 



My only need is to acknowledge my mistakes and accept the means for them to be undone. I do not need to undo them alone. To attempt to do so is to reject the means He gave me. Rather, I need to accept His help and it will be done for me. As long as I continue to believe in false ideas and desire that they be true, I will not accept the means for them to be undone. (Excerpt from Pathways of Light Workbook Daily Lesson 168 Insight)

R-E-L-A-X into the Truth

Peace is an attribute of Truth. When we get involved in the conflicting, illusionary images of the world and believe they are real, we are not at peace. When we are not at peace, we can step back from our involvement in the world by relaxing… It can be helpful to pause, to take a time out, to take a deep breath and relax as we let it out…

As we take the time to relax deeply, the seeming reality of the world softens and we can open our minds to the vision of the Holy Spirit… It will always show us the truth behind the false images of the world.

The daily, even moment-by-moment practice of relaxing into peace will transform our experience of the world. It will lead us out of judgment and bring us Christ’s vision, which shows us the reality of changeless Love that is ever present… As we accept the Love, the perception of conflict fades away… We open to the experience of joining in the Love we all share with God… We R-E-L-A-X into truth…
