Let Me Be Still and Listen for the Truth

Robert: The greatest gift I can give my brother is to see him with Christ vision. In the giving of that gift, it is returned to me and shows me my Self. In order to see with Christ vision, I must let go of my attachments and the barriers I have built against Love. Each time I turn over my perceptions to the Holy Spirit for reinterpretation with an open mind and heart, my Christ vision becomes clearer. Christ vision is always available, but judgments block awareness of it.

Today I will continue my practice of being mindful of my thoughts and holding an open mind to the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of all my perceptions. This is how I am able to give and receive the gift of Christ vision.


Mary:
  When I let my mind quiet and listen, I hear the words, “Let me be still and listen for the truth. Let me rest in Holy Spirit’s healing Light a while. Let me make no decisions on my own.”

These words come out of a quiet desire to awaken to my true Self. Resting here in this place of quietness brings with it a gentle sense of inner peace, a sense of constancy and changelessness. There is also a feeling that comes with it of safety and stability.

From this state of mind, I see the world differently. It is easier not to take its stories so seriously. There is a quiet inner knowing here that everything really is all right, no matter what seems to be going on in the dream of separate bodies. From this quiet place, a sense of peace and calm prevails. There is a feeling of trust and relaxed certainty of the true safety behind all the stories of every “individual” in the world. There is a knowing that all is well, despite all appearances of lack, sickness and death. The quiet, constant Light of God is felt, and the veil of forgetfulness is seen as thin and meaningless.

I am very gently and quietly shown that it is important for me to come to this quiet place and let myself be reminded of the truth often. Even though the world appears quite real at times, there is a sacred place in my mind where I am brought to the truth, when I am willing to let my mind be healed. Right now I feel so grateful that oneness is the only truth and that separation could never be real.

Accept Love in the Present Moment

Mary:  This morning we were guided to read from the book, “The Mirror on Still Water.” Robert randomly opened to a page that said, “The greatest gift you will ever give to yourself is your trust in the Love Which created you. Nothing can ever really hurt you here except your unwillingness to take the risk that your complete trust would offer. And even that is temporary. The Gift of your real Life is fully recognized the moment you proceed to follow and live in the Light that God gave you.”

The only way that I know how to live in the Light that God gave me is to accept Love in this present moment. This means that I have to let go of the past and the future. This is my lesson today — lab time in the practice of accepting and extending Love this moment. As I do this right now I am moving toward recognizing the gift of my real Life.


Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Let Love guide your way today. Let Love guide your seeing and show you all your brothers who are one with you. There are no exceptions. Let Love show you the strength of God in you. Let Love show you the perfect peace that is God’s gift to you. Let Love help you look past all appearances with gentle laughter as you remember that you remain as Love created you.

Receive a Change of Mind

Holy Spirit to Mary:  Let go of control. Don’t try to figure anything out on your own. Open your mind to the Holy Spirit and let yourself be carried.

Let your true Self fill your mind with the peace of God. That is your job — to have the willingness to allow Holy Spirit to do Its healing work in your mind. Your job is to receive a change of mind.

The Holy Spirit is the opposite of the ego. When you truly let the Holy Spirit in, the Holy Spirit’s Light dissolves the ego’s darkness, the belief in separation. Let your mind be washed with the Light of peace right now. Let it relax you deeply. Let go. Surrender to the healing Light. Here you receive Christ vision. In this holy place, you are able to truly see the truth in each brother. Let yourself reside in this healing state of mind today. Let yourself receive peace and extend peace today.


Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Every moment is an opportunity to choose peace. Choose peace and be happy. When you choose peace, you open the door to welcome God’s gift to you. God’s Will for you is perfect happiness. Love has already given you everything you need.

When you feel lack of any kind, you have closed your mind against Love’s eternal gift to you. You are perceiving false images that hide the truth only because you believe in them. Offer these images and beliefs to the Holy Spirit, your Self, and open your mind to Its reinterpretation. It will show you the opportunity to Love that heals the perception of separation.

This practice will bridge the seeming gap between you and your Self. It is the way to perfect happiness.

Let Peace Flow Through You

Robert:  I’ve become aware of my mind wandering into old stories of vulnerability that bring up fear in me. This morning I brought that fear and laid it on the table before Holy Spirit. I released the fears to Him and I expressed my willingness to receive His gift of peace. After a little time I became aware that I did feel more peaceful.

In our group sharing this morning, there was much that was shared of experiences we each have had of feeling fear and what happened when we were willing to open our minds to Holy Spirit’s healing. I am deeply grateful for all my brothers, who are one with me. We walk together, returning to our Home in Love. And I give thanks.


Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Walk toward the Light. See nothing else. Immerse yourself. Bask in the Light. Feel Its healing power. Know this: You are the Light. Believe this! You will always be the Light! Go forth and shine on everyone!!!


Self to Annie:
Jump up for joy for you are getting closer and closer to your awakening in Heaven. The memory of the beautiful Self that you are is sprouting forth in your consciousness, as you are willing to look deeper. You are the peace of God and nothing can erase that truth. Rejoice that you are remembering as you let go of old hurt and pain. In doing that, you are perfectly safe.


Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Let peace flow through you like a river. Let yourself become aware of the river of peace that is flowing everywhere. Stay in the now moment for that is how you become aware of the river of peace that is flowing through you. Let the river of peace carry you to a state of mind where you can remember the truth.

The truth is you and everyone are in Heaven now. The whole Sonship is still as God created it. Nothing has happened to change God’s creation. You are learning to let go and allow yourself to be brought to the truth. Each now moment teaches you that only the truth is true. Only God is real. Be still. Be still and allow. Be willing for the truth to return to your holy mind.

This is your answer now to whatever concerns you may have in each present moment. Take everything to God. Here you learn that only God is your strength and vision is His gift. Be willing to receive the gift now.

What’s up, God?

Robert:  One of Bugs Bunny’s favorite sayings is, “What’s up, Doc?” The only true answer to that question is Love. Love is always up, always present. If we perceive anything else, we are listening to a mistaken voice. Today I’m going to be asking myself, “What’s up, Doc?” and opening my mind and heart to the recognition of the Love that is always there.


Holy Spirit to Dorie:  Be the Love! For Love is all there is. Look within. Look without. It is everywhere. It hasn’t been hiding. You’ve been chasing it away. Look within. See the Love within yourself. Extend it to all, without reservation. Do not watch for results. Just extend. A new step each moment will lead to a life fulfilled.


Self to Annie:  “What’s up God?” God’s answer will always be, “I AM.” If you ask, “What about me, God?” He will answer, “I AM.” “What about this whole world, God?” He will answer, “I AM.” And I ask, “Am I?” And God will answer, “Yes, I AM.”


Holy Spirit to Mary:  Love is One. Love is up because Love is All. Give yourself the time to let that awareness in. Take it in. Soak in Love’s awareness. Rest in Love. Rest in the truth today. Feel its innate happiness. Feel its strength. This strength and happiness is what you are. Let yourself realize that there is nothing else. You can relax now and set yourself free from the thought that there ever could be anything else. The choice is up to you every moment.

Peace Be to You

Holy Spirit to Mary:  Today, sing the song of joy. Let laughter and happiness fill your heart. You still are as God created you. Nothing has changed God’s one Son. Joy and happiness abound in God’s one Mind. Let yourself remember the truth and accept the happiness, peace and joy that God gave you. Rest in the truth today.


Annie:
This reminds me of the song, “Peace be to you. Peace be to me. Peace be to all and the world is free.” This is what every heart has always been longing for, the inner peace that we are and that we offer to each other. This is the true healing. This is perfect health—to be peace and to offer peace.


Dorie:
Let today be a day of peace and healing.


Robert:
Today I choose to take a peace walk. In form it may appear to be like every other day, but as I hold my focus on the peace in my heart, it becomes a day of blessing and of joy.

Step Back, Rise Above and See the Love

Holy Spirit to Mary: In the ego’s world of separate bodies where differences seems so real, it is important to learn to see it differently. You now know that seeing the world differently enables your release from the heavy burden that belief in separation and the guilt that comes with it brings.

You are learning to rise above to see the Love that lies beyond the illusion of separate bodies. This is your practice today. As you practice again and again, stepping back from your thoughts and perceptions and listening for the truth, you will rise above to see the Love.

Here is where you find your peace and happiness. It is here that you are released from the hell of belief in separation. Practice this today. With Holy Spirit’s help, rise above to see the Love in every situation. It is always there with your willingness to find It. Let Holy Spirit be your Guide today to find the Love that is always there.


Robert:
  Today is a day for practicing stepping back and letting peace lead the way in every moment. In peace my heart and mind are open to Holy Spirit’s gentle guidance. In peace I follow in the way that is truly helpful. This is my desire.
