Returning to Our Sanctity in God

Christ’s vision is the bridge between the worlds. And in its power can you safely trust to carry you from this world into one made holy by forgiveness.…

This is the Holy Spirit’s single gift; the treasure house to which you can appeal with perfect certainty for all the things that can contribute to your happiness.

Christ has dreamed the dream of a forgiven world. It is His gift, whereby a sweet transition can be made from death to life; from hopelessness to hope. Let us an instant dream with Him. His dream awakens us to truth. His vision gives the means for a return to our unlost and everlasting sanctity in God. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.159.5:1-2;6:1;10:4-8)

Today our practice is to open to the truth of Christ’s vision… As we let go of our hold on the world and open to the holiness of Christ’s vision, we are able to see the truth about everyone… We are open to seeing the forgiven world, where guilt has no part… With Christ’s vision we are able to see past the false ideas of separate bodies… We are carried to the truth of our unity with God… We return to the truth that we are all united in God’s one holy Mind… In truth we remain as God created us eternally… In this remembering we are filled with the peace and Love of God… And we are so grateful that this is so.

Residing in God’s Peace

Today we make residing in God’s peace our highest priority… We let the beingness of God’s peace fill our minds and hearts… We allow ourselves to feel the fullness of God’s peace… We let peace fill every part of our mind…

Our acceptance of God’s peace becomes like a filter, clearing out false ideas… The acceptance of the beingness of peace brings Inspiration with it… We allow time to let it fill our minds…

We let ourselves feel the gratitude and joy that comes with accepting God’s peace… We let our day be filled with joy and happiness as residing in God’s peace becomes our highest priority.

Being Reflections of Love in the World

Holy Spirit, there seems to be much to do in the world. We are willing to lay down our own ideas and expectations of what needs to be done.

We ask Your help to abide in the center of peace within in all our busy doing. Guide us that we may be Your hands, your feet, your voice in all that we do. We would make no decisions on our own. We trust that You will direct us in the way of Love so that we will bring only reflections of Love to the world. We give thanks.

Overflowing Gratitude

Gratitude is the inevitable effect of forgiveness… Forgiveness removes a barrier to Love’s presence, and gratitude is an attribute of Love.

Today is designated as a national day for gratitude. It is in truth a day for forgiveness. When we focus on what we are grateful for, we remind ourselves of the value of forgiveness. Gratitude welcomes what we are grateful for. When we forgive, we forgive an illusion. When we let it go, we welcome the truth that was hidden by illusion — we welcome Love.

Today we dedicate to setting aside our perceptions and interpretations of our brothers and the world to open our minds to receive the true vision of the Holy Spirit. With this practice we let go or forgive the past and welcome Love in the eternal present. In forgiveness and gratitude, we heal. As we join with the Holy Spirit’s vision we see a happy world and our gratitude overflows.

Offering the Gift of Peace

To give is to receive. Today we will attempt to offer peace to everyone, and see how quickly peace returns to us. Light is tranquility, and in that peace is vision given us, and we can see.

To everyone I offer quietness.
To everyone I offer peace of mind.
To everyone I offer gentleness.

(A Course in Miracles, W-pI.108.7:3-5;8:6-8)

Do we want God’s peace? Then we need to give God’s peace. But to give peace, we need to accept His gift. The belief in the dream of being separate and alone buffeted by images of conflict and loss, fear and guilt is the denial of God’s gift of peace. He has never stopped giving us this gift, but it is unknown to us because we have turned our back on it and focused on the ego’s world of separation. Gratefully we can change our focus.

Today we take time to go within and settle in to the quiet center of peace that is always there for us… It is our true Self… Here we find the peace that cannot be found in the world outside… Here we find the Light that shines through the images of conflict to the changeless Love that is everywhere… From this quiet place we draw from the limitless well of peace and extend it to all our brothers…

We offer it to our dearest friends… and we offer it to those unknown to us… We offer it to those who have passed by this world and those yet to come… And as we offer this gift, we experience its blessing and know this peace as ours… We offer the gift of peace today in gratitude and joy.

Finding What We Really Want

Today we will again give thanks for our Identity in God. Our home is safe, protection guaranteed in all we do, power and strength available to us in all our undertakings. We can fail in nothing. Everything we touch takes on a shining light that blesses and that heals. At one with God and with the universe we go our way rejoicing, with the thought that God Himself goes everywhere with us. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.124.1)

What do we really want? We may believe we want a partner who loves us, the right job, more money or any number of things in the world. But we’ve all had the experience of getting things or circumstances we thought we wanted, only to find they did not satisfy. Perhaps they did briefly, but they did not last. These things in the world are just empty images which are incapable of offering what we really want.

All we really want is the Love that is already given us. We do not recognize the Love we have and are because we are looking for it in forms where it cannot be found. The Love we seek is already in us. We need only look within to find It.

To find what we really want, the only thing that can truly satisfy, we need to follow the Guide That can lead us out of the quagmire of self-deception we have made up.

Holy Spirit, I take your Hand today. Lead me to see past the false images to the eternal Presence of Love. Show me the Love in my brothers so that I may see It in myself. Help me to recognize the meaninglessness of the false images so that I can let them go. Today I would follow in gratitude.

We Remain at Home in Love

Do we want to experience a happy world, where Love is recognized as flowing uninterrupted through all things? Or do we want to experience a world of conflict and loss, guilt and fear, sadness and death? In every moment we choose between these two options.

When we choose to believe we are a separate identity governed by the ego thought system founded on guilt, we choose the second experience. When we choose to let the Holy Spirit guide all our doing, we choose the experience of the happy dream, we choose the experience of Love flowing through us. We experience Love’s blessing and extend It to all that is.

Today we choose to see what Love sees by setting aside our judgments and letting the Holy Spirit be our Guide in all things. With this practice we will be truly helpful in all our doing. We will know that we are safe and strong in Love. We will know that our brothers are also safe and fully supported by Love’s strength, no matter what appearances may be in the dream.

With this practice today we take a giant stride to remembering we remain at Home in Heaven, at Home in Love.
