Accepting Love as Our Identity

⁶In quietness is [the peace of God] acknowledged universally. ⁷For what your inward vision looks upon is your perception of the universe.

Sit quietly and close your eyes. ²The light within you is sufficient. ³It alone has power to give the gift of sight to you. ⁴Exclude the outer world, and let your thoughts fly to the peace within. ⁵They know the way. ⁶For honest thoughts, untainted by the dream of worldly things outside yourself, become the holy messengers of God Himself.

We practice coming nearer to the light in us today. ²We take our wandering thoughts, and gently bring them back to where they fall in line with all the thoughts we share with God.

…we acknowledge that the peace of God still shines in us, and from us to all living things that share our life. ²We will forgive them all, absolving all the world from what we thought it did to us. ³For it is we who make the world as we would have it. ⁴Now we choose that it be innocent, devoid of sin and open to salvation. ⁵And we lay our saving blessing on it, as we say:

⁶The peace of God is shining in me now.
⁷Let all things shine upon me in that peace, and let me bless them with the light in me.
(A Course in Miracles, W-188.5:6–6:6;9:1-2;10. See also ACIM Lesson 188 Insights.)

A fundamental message of the Course is that God is only Love and He creates by extending His Love. This is the basis for acknowledging that His Son shares His Love. To know the Love we are as His Son, we need to let go of the images we have made that seem to disconnect us from God.

We are called to quiet our mind and welcome God’s peace. He has given us His peace in our creation. We are simply being called to acknowledge our true Identity as Love. Love knows no conflict. As we forgive all the thoughts of lack and loss, fear and guilt, we awaken to the peace that is our natural state. We are grateful that we have a Guide to forgiveness Whose vision shows us the presence of Love within and all around us.

We are grateful to let God’s peace shine through us upon a forgiven world.
