We Rest In Oneness with Every Brother

You rest within the peace of God today, and call upon your brothers from your rest to draw them to their rest, along with you. You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting no one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest. Open the temple doors and let them come from far across the world, and near as well; your distant brothers and your closest friends; bid them all enter here and rest with you.

You rest within the peace of God today, quiet and unafraid. Each brother comes to take his rest, and offer it to you. We rest together here, for thus our rest is made complete, and what we give today we have received already. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 109, W-pI.109.8:1-9:3. See also ACIM Lesson 109 Insights.)

It is so helpful to remember that in Reality, our true Self rests in the Mind of God eternally… As we make opening to our true Self our highest priority, we move into a space of inner peace and quiet joy… We feel Love’s happiness and connectedness with all that is… We feel Love’s tranquility and sense of complete safety… We remember we cannot harm or be harmed as we rest in God’s complete oneness…

We remember the truth about everyone’s innocence… And because we are able to see past time, we become aware of an inner contentment and peace that is beyond this world’s understanding… We open to this awareness today and share it with all our brothers… We are in deep gratitude.

Accepting our True Self’s Happiness

Heaven itself is reached with empty hands and open minds, which come with nothing to find everything and claim it as their own. We will attempt to reach this state today, with self-deception laid aside, and with an honest willingness to value but the truly valuable and the real.

And then receive what waits for everyone who reaches, unencumbered, to the gate of Heaven, which swings open as he comes. Should you begin to let yourself collect some needless burdens, or believe you see some difficult decisions facing you, be quick to answer with this simple thought:

I will not value what is valueless, for what is valuable belongs to me.

(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 133, W-pI.133.13:1-2;14. See also ACIM Lesson 133 Insights.)

Today we focus on letting our minds be healed of artificial values. Today we open up to receive inspiration from the Holy Spirit, Who shows us where true value lies. Because we want to return to the truth that only God’s Love is real, we receive inspiration in a form that is perfect for us regarding misplaced values we have been holding from the past.

We feel Holy Spirit’s confidence in the certainty of our healing journey Home. We open to Holy Spirit’s Love, peace and joy as we let the gate of Heaven be opened for us. As we awaken we find that all that is valuable is ours already. We become aware of the happiness of our true Self.

You Are One Self, United with Your Creator

When you fail to comply with the requirements of this course, you have merely made a mistake. This calls for correction, and for nothing else. To allow a mistake to continue is to make additional mistakes, based on the first and reinforcing it. It is this process that must be laid aside, for it is but another way in which you would defend illusions against the truth.

Let all these errors go by recognizing them for what they are. They are attempts to keep you unaware you are one Self, united with your Creator, at one with every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and in peace. This is the truth, and nothing else is true. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 95, W-pI.95.9:1-10:3. See also ACIM Lesson 95 Insights.)

As we attempt to practice the daily lesson of the ACIM Workbook, it seems impossible to follow the directions exactly as prescribed. The ego may use this to justify a sense of unworthiness, weakness and guilt. This reinforces the idea that we are separate from everything, including God.

But we are reminded that if we wander away from the lesson, all that is needed is to correct the error rather than reinforce it with guilt and a sense of unworthiness. As we practice and notice we have wandered off track, all that is called for is to return to the practice. Nothing more.

The lesson’s are training us to direct our attention away from the ego’s thought system of guilt and fear. As we practice giving our attention to the Holy Spirit with willingness to receive His loving correction, we are released from the ego’s tyranny. This is our practice for today as we remember that we are One Self, united with our Creator.

Giving God’s Love to All

Consider the kingdom you have made and judge its worth fairly. Is it worthy to be a home for a child of God? Does it protect his peace and shine love upon him? Does it keep his heart untouched by fear, and allow him to give [Love] always, without any sense of loss? Does it teach him that this giving [Love] is his joy, and that God Himself thanks him for his giving? That is the only environment in which you can be happy. You cannot make it, any more than you can make yourself. It has been created for you, as you were created for it. God watches over His children and denies them nothing. Yet when they deny Him they do not know this, because they deny themselves everything. You who could give the Love of God to everything you see and touch and remember, are literally denying Heaven to yourself. (A Course in Miracles, T-7.XI.3. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

There is no form in the world that can bring us the joy that comes with giving God’s Love to all. To give His Love, we must see past form, seeing only innocence. The Light of Love shines in us and through us when we are willing to set aside our learning from the past and welcome the ever present Love that is our true Nature. The Love in us is then free to join with Love everywhere and in everyone.

We set aside our learning from the past through forgiveness. We must be willing to let the Holy Spirit teach us to recognize what is true and what could never be true. It is only the wish for the untrue to be real that needs to be forgiven or let go. Today we practice opening our minds to the Holy Spirit’s vision of Love that we may give God’s Love everywhere.

Accepting God’s Light as Ours

Your right mind sees only brothers, because it sees only in its own light. God has lit your mind Himself, and keeps your mind lit by His light because His light is what your mind is. (A Course in Miracles, T-7.III.4:10-5:1. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Today we practice opening to the Light of our real Mind. Our intent and willingness to open to the Light is what brings us the experience of its presence. As we place our full attention on receiving God’s Light, we allow peace, contentment and a sense of well-being to enter. We see that Love is universally true everywhere. We feel safe and fear has disappeared.

We want our right mind and because we want it we receive it. We know that we share this right mind with everyone. As we see God’s Light in others, we accept it as our own.

Seeing Past Appearances to Reality

Appearances deceive, but can be changed. Reality is changeless. It does not deceive at all, and if you fail to see beyond appearances you are deceived. For everything you see will change, and yet you thought it real before, and now you think it real again. Reality is thus reduced to form, and capable of change. Reality is changeless. It is this that makes it real, and keeps it separate from all appearances. It must transcend all form to be itself. It cannot change. (A Course in Miracles, T-30.VIII.1. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

The Course has given us a very clear benchmark to help us recognize what is real and what is illusion: If it changes, it is not real. Everything we see with the body’s eyes changes. A rock seems to be changeless, but the Grand Canyon demonstrates that even stone changes over time.

With this benchmark, we can say unequivocally that the world we see is not real. This is good news. It means that we are not stuck with the world we see. If we are willing to receive the miracle offered us by the Holy Spirit, we will be given a new way of seeing.

This new way of seeing does not use the body’s eyes. It is the vision of Love that sees only formless Love everywhere in everything. It is why the early lesson states, “God is in everything I see.” We cannot see God with the body’s eyes, but we can know God through the Love that is our true Self. Nothing else exists.

Today we are willing to receive the Holy Spirit’s gift of miracles.

Accepting Treasures Beyond Measure

Behind every image I have made, the truth remains unchanged. Behind every veil I have drawn across the face of love, its light remains undimmed. Beyond all my insane wishes is my will, united with the Will of my Father. 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 Workbook Lesson 56, W-pI.56.4:2-6. See also ACIM Lesson 56 Insights.)

Perfect peace, boundless joy and Love without limit are treasures beyond measure. This treasure is our inheritance, given us by our Creator. God’s Will is that we accept this gift. To know this gift is ours we need only let go of the image of a limited self, which could never be true. This is no sacrifice, but only a welcoming of the truth.

When we accept God’s Will as ours, we accept a treasure beyond measure and give up nothing that we mistakenly thought had some value. Today we would welcome our inheritance and accept our Home in Heaven.
