Opening to Truth and Healing

We will be still and listen for the Voice of healing, which will cure all ills as one, restoring saneness to the Son of God. No voice but this can cure. Today we hear a single Voice which speaks to us of truth, where all illusions end, and peace returns to the eternal, quiet home of God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 140, W-pI.140.10:2-4. See also ACIM Lesson 140 Insights.)

We listen to God when we relax and let go… There is no strain nor efforting… We simply stop and open to the Light within our mind… We acknowledge that this Light of Truth is there, waiting for our receptivity and openness… We let the feeling of gentleness, patience and Love fill our mind until it is overflowing and reaches everyone equally… We are filled with gratitude and peace… We remember that we are safe in the Heart of God eternally… And for this we give thanks.

God Walks With Us Always

“Who walks with me?” This question should be asked a thousand times a day, till certainty has ended doubting and established peace. Today let doubting cease. God speaks for you in answering your question with these words:

I walk with God in perfect holiness. I light the world, I light my mind and all the minds which God created one with me. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 156, W-pI.156.8. See also ACIM Lesson 156 Insights.)

In this world it seems that we are alone and left to our own devices to survive. Yet the Course is reminding us that God walks with us always, whether we are aware of Him or not. If we ask the simple question, “Who walks with me?” God’s answer reassures us that we walk with God.

All of God’s strength, Love, peace and joy are available to us right now. We need only let go of the veil of self-deception that shows us an image of apparent separation and lack. We have been given the Holy Spirit, the Voice for God, to guide us in the way that leads us out of self deception and to the acceptance that we remain God’s Son. We remain Love’s extension, along with all our brothers.

Today we would remind ourselves again and again that we walk in God’s Love, share His strength and in truth live in His peace. As we let His Light guide us, we easily see and let go of the false images that blind us to the awareness that we remain at Home in Love.

Choosing Peace to Find Spirit’s Joy

You are part of Reality, which stands unchanged beyond the reach of your ego but within easy reach of Spirit. When you are afraid, be still and know that God is real, and you are His beloved Son in whom He is well pleased.

The ego is afraid of the Spirit’s joy, because once you have experienced it you will withdraw all protection from the ego, and become totally without investment in fear. Your investment [in fear] is great now because fear is a witness to the separation, and your ego rejoices when you witness to [separation]. Leave it behind! Do not listen to it and do not preserve it. Listen only to God, Who is as incapable of deception as is the Spirit He created.

Of your ego you can do nothing to save yourself or others, but of your Spirit you can do everything for the salvation of both. (A Course in Miracles, T-4.I.8:5-6;10:1-5;12:1. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Today we practice listening to God, our Source. We open to the Spirit of Joy Which is God’s gift to us as we open to Him. With God, our values are set straight. We are willing to let go of wandering in the wilderness of the ego’s false values.

As we go through our day, we continue to practice choosing peace, which opens our mind to that Light of Love’s oneness. As we let the remembrance of Love’s Presence return to our mind, we give It joyfully as we have received.  All this comes naturally and effortlessly as we choose peace to find Spirit’s joy.

Reclaiming Our Self in the Heart of God

“I rest in God.” This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. “I rest in God.” This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is. Here is the end of suffering for all the world, and everyone who ever came and yet will come to linger for a while. Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize himself.

“I rest in God.” Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem that it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 109, W-pI.109.2-3. See also ACIM Lesson 109 Insights.)

In the world, our days seem to be filled with change, uncertainty and struggle. The daily and hourly practice of stepping back and letting ourselves rest in the peace of God within can change our experience completely. From the place of peace, we are open to see with the vision of Christ. This vision sees past appearances and shows us that beyond appearances there is a solution to every apparent problem.

There is safety beyond the chaos. There is strength beyond the sense of vulnerability. There is true perception beyond the perception of guilt and fear. Each time we pause to welcome and rest in the peace of God, we remember with greater certainty that we have all the help we need to reclaim the Self that remains changeless in the Heart of God. And we give thanks.

We Sing the Song of Thankfulness Today

Today let us be thankful. We have come to gentler pathways and to smoother roads.

Today in gratitude we lift our hearts above despair, and raise our thankful eyes, no longer looking downward to the dust. We sing the song of thankfulness today, in honor of the Self that God has willed to be our true Identity in Him. Today we smile on everyone we see, and walk with lightened footsteps as we go to do what is appointed us to do.

We do not go alone. And we give thanks that in our solitude a Friend has come to speak the saving Word of God to us. And thanks to you for listening to Him.

Receive His thanks, and you will understand how lovingly He holds you in His Mind, how deep and limitless His care for you, how perfect is His gratitude to you. Remember hourly to think of Him, and give Him thanks for everything He gave His Son, that he might rise above the world, remembering his Father and his Self. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 123, W-pI.123.1:1-2;4:1-5:3;8. See also ACIM Lesson 123 Insights.)

Today we would remember the one Self That is everyone’s true Identity. Today we would remember our one Identity in God. Today we would remember God’s perfect Love, which He shares with everyone equally. We would forgive ideas of greater and lesser and open to the changeless Reality that is our Home.

We listen to the Holy Spirit throughout the day, and follow in gratitude as we are led to gentleness and peace. We let the happiness of our true Self flow freely to all. We rise above the world as we welcome Holy Spirit’s meaning for everything. This is how we sing the song of thankfulness.

Learning to Welcome God’s Happiness and Peace.

God is your safety in every circumstance. His Voice speaks for Him in all situations and in every aspect of all situations, telling you exactly what to do to call upon His strength and His protection. There are no exceptions because God has no exceptions. And the Voice which speaks for Him thinks as He does. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 47, W-pI.47.3. See also ACIM Lesson 47 Insights.)

Think how happy and peaceful our day would be if we welcomed the Voice for God and followed Its direction. There would be no conflict because every situation would be lovingly guided for the highest good of everyone concerned.

Our vision, guided by God’s Voice, would see the truth in every brother — we would see every brother as extensions of God’s Love. Appearances of disunity or conflicting interests would be recognized as false images. The Light of God’s Love would shine through the false and show us the truth that only Love is real. We would rest in the certainty of God’s changeless Love and feel His sure protection.

All this is available to us now. All we need do is forgive the false ideas that present a world of fear and guilt. Best of all, we do not need to forgive by our own efforts. Indeed we cannot. But the Voice for God offers us all of God’s strength and all of God’s Love. As we are willing to accept It, we forgive the world and forgive ourselves. God’s joy and peace are recognized as our own and we give thanks.

Living in the Presence of Love

Today we have one focus — we focus on following where Love leads us.

We keep the truth of Love’s Presence in the forefront of our mind… We are willing to see past the barriers to Love to the awareness that, behind all forms of separation, which is illusion, only Love is real.

We let the eternal Presence of Love be in the forefront of our mind… We let ourselves feel the peace and blessings that come with remembering eternal Love is all that is real…

We give thanks and feel full of gratitude as we remember that nothing has happened to change God’s one Son. We are eternally safe as Love in the Mind of Love.
