Accepting God’s Joy as Ours

Only God’s plan for salvation will work.

²It is senseless for me to search wildly about for salvation. ³I have seen it in many people and in many things, but when I reached for it, it was not there. ⁴I was mistaken about where it is. ⁵I was mistaken about what it is. ⁶I will undertake no more idle seeking. ⁷Only God’s plan for salvation will work. ⁸And I will rejoice because His plan can never fail.

These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically:

²God’s plan for salvation will save me from my perception of this.
³This is no exception in God’s plan for my salvation.
⁴Let me perceive this only in the light of God’s plan for salvation.
(A Course in Miracles, W-86.1–2. See also ACIM Lesson 86 Insights.)

What we believe will make us happy we think is our salvation. The ego has a plan for our salvation, but like everything else the ego directs, it will not work. The ego sends us on myriad fruitless searches for forms that it tells us will make us happy. But forms are illusions without real content so they never satisfy. We tell ourselves if we get the right job, we will be happy. If we find the right significant other we will be happy, and on and on.

The ego has a million decoys that glitter with the possibility of making us happy. But if we achieve any of them, they do not satisfy. At best they offer temporary happiness that does not compare to the indescribable joy that comes with accepting God’s Love.

God’s plan for our salvation provides means for us to let go of the mistaken beliefs that prevent us from experiencing God’s joy and peace. Everything He is, we are. God holds nothing back in His eternal sharing of His Love with His Creation. Throughout every day we make choices between the ego’s offerings of pseudo happiness and God’s gift of joy unlimited.

Today we practice welcoming the Holy Spirit’s vision in place of our perceptions of the world. This is how we accept God’s plan for our salvation, our happiness.
