Accepting Love’s Gentleness and Patience

My Prayer of Accepting Love’s Gentleness and Patience

Love, I surrender to Your gentle and patient care. I let go of my perceptions of a past. I let go of my perceptions of a future. I accept only Your eternal Loving Presence.

I have no need to plan for my safety. My needs are provided for continuously in Your gentle and patient care.

I let go of all I thought the world was. I let go of what I thought my brothers were. I give back to You all I thought was mine alone.

I accept Love’s gentleness and patience by giving Love’s gentleness and patience to the whole Sonship. (Poster from ACIM Practitioner course 914: The Power of Gentleness and Patience.)

Peace Through Forgiveness

God’s peace can never come where anger is, for anger must deny that peace exists. Who sees anger as justified in any way or any circumstance proclaims that peace is meaningless, and must believe that it cannot exist. …Therefore, forgiveness is the necessary condition for finding the peace of God.

Is conflict what you want, or is God’s peace the better choice? …A tranquil mind is not a little gift.” A Course in Miracles, (M-20.3:3-4,6;4:6,8)

A touch of frustration, a hint of disappointment and intense rage are all the same. They all occur because we perceive conflict. We want something to be different than what we perceive in order to be happy. Conflict and peace cannot coexist. To return to the peace of God, we need to forgive or let go of the perception of conflict. This is how we remember the peace of God and claim the gift that is already ours.

Our practice today is to bring any perception of conflict in which our peace seems to be disturbed to the Holy Spirit. He will offer His true perception, which will show us the reality of Love’s oneness and the unreality of conflict. With His gentle guidance, we will easily let go of the belief that conflict is possible. As we let go of belief in conflict, we welcome the peace of God. Today we would welcome God’s peace.

Accepting Our True Identity

The power of decision is my own. This day I will accept myself as what my Father’s Will created me to be.

Then will we wait in silence, giving up all self-deceptions, as we humbly ask our Self that He reveal Himself to us. And He Who never left will come again to our awareness, grateful to restore His home to God, as it was meant to be.

In patience wait for Him throughout the day, and hourly invite Him with the words with which the day began, concluding it with this same invitation to your Self. God’s Voice will answer, for He speaks for you and for your Father. He will substitute the peace of God for all your frantic thoughts, the truth of God for self-deceptions, and God’s Son for your illusions of yourself. (A Course in Miracles, W-pI.152.11:3-12:3. See also ACIM Lesson 152 Insights.)

Today we welcome the truth of our eternal Reality as one with all Love… We welcome the truth of every brother’s reality as eternal Love… We focus on letting the truth return to our minds… We receive the peace of God as this memory returns…

We know that we are safe… We know that everyone is safe… We accept our Father’s Will that we could never change the Love that He created us to be… And we are filled with gratitude that this is so.

I Remember Who I Am

I accept that I am Love.

I release all judgments of others and know that they are doing the best they can.

I keep my life simple and follow my highest path. I stay in tune with the Highest Source within me and let It guide my ways.

I am gentle and kind with myself and others. I pace myself with one step at a time.

I know the perfect circumstances present themselves for my perfect continued growth.

I am Love.
I am Joy.
I am Peace.

I Take All My Relationships to the Holy Spirit

Specialness is not my goal… I am willing to let go of the past, where I looked to form and bodies to find happiness…

I am willing to see that universal Love is in me… I have no need to look for special love outside.

I am willing to let my mind be host to the Holy Spirit, and receive the holy instant. In the holy instant, my mind is opened to receive and give universal Love…

I see that all minds are in communication and host to the One Mind of God… In God I remember I always have all to give…

I give Love to all equally. (Excerpt from ACIM Practitioner course 905: Special Relationships versus Holy Relationships.)

We Welcome Love’s Presence

Our prayer for today:
Holy Spirit we give all our perceptions to You today to receive Your interpretation in place of ours. We know that You will show us the Love that shines behind every form.

In the Light of this Love we will see the Love in every brother and remember we are joined with him in Love. In the Light of Love, the conflicting forms of the world become less compelling and fade in their seeming importance.

As we see the Love everywhere with Your help, we will feel Its peace and safety. We will feel Its beneficence and strength. As we exchange our own interpretations for Yours, we welcome Love’s presence and feel Its blessing.

Remembering Heaven

Forgiveness takes away what stands between your brother and yourself. It is the wish that you be joined with him, and not apart.

Salvation, perfect and complete, asks but a little wish that what is true be true; a little willingness to overlook what is not there; a little sigh that speaks for Heaven as a preference to this world that death and desolation seem to rule. In joyous answer will creation rise within you, to replace the world you see with Heaven, wholly perfect and complete. What is forgiveness but a willingness that truth be true? What can remain unhealed and broken from a unity which holds all things within itself? There is no sin. And every miracle is possible the instant that the Son of God perceives his wishes and the Will of God are one. (A Course in Miracles, T-26.VII.9:1-2;10. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Judgment depends on believing that what we judge is separate from us. Judgment brings with it fear and guilt, pain and suffering, isolation and a sense of loss. It brings the appearance of Heaven’s opposite. When we let go of judgment, we open our minds to the recognition of Heaven as our Reality. Forgiveness is the willingness to let Oneness be true, and therefore let Heaven be our reality.

As we practice bringing all our thoughts of fear and guilt, of unhappiness and unworthiness, to the Holy Spirit in our minds to receive His healing vision, we move closer to letting the reality of Heaven dawn upon our minds. We choose to remember Heaven with this practice today.
