Accepting Our Will to Be Unlimited Love

If I am bound, my Father is not free.

If I accept that I am prisoner within a body, in a world in which all things that seem to live appear to die, then is my Father prisoner with me. ²And this do I believe, when I maintain the laws the world obeys must I obey; the frailties and the sins which I perceive are real, and cannot be escaped. ³If I am bound in any way, I do not know my Father nor my Self. ⁴And I am lost to all reality. ⁵For truth is free, and what is bound is not a part of truth.

Father, I ask for nothing but the truth [Love]. ²I have had many foolish thoughts about myself and my creation, and have brought a dream of fear into my mind. ³Today, I would not dream. ⁴I choose the way to You instead of madness and instead of fear. ⁵For truth is safe, and only love is sure. (A Course in Miracles, W-278. See also ACIM Lesson 278 Insights.)

We share God’s Will—to be and extend only Love eternally. For our will to be free, we can place no limits on Love. Love is everywhere, always. If we are not aware of the presence of Love, we have placed a limit in our mind—belief in separation.

The ego is the opposite of free will. It can seem to be independent from God only by deny God’s unity. In its place, the ego dreams of separate bodies, places and time. Everything in the ego’s dream is defined by limits. The consequence of accepting the ego is to believe in lack of Love. Because of this perceived lack, the ego sets us on a path of fruitless searching for Love. Its direction always leads to nothing and nowhere, for that is what its dream is.

Beyond this dream remains the reality of our true Self Whose will is free to be and extend Love without limit. We have lost our way in the ego’s dream but we have not lost our connection with our true Self. The Holy Spirit is with us always, ready to help us see past the ego’s limits to the Light of Love that surrounds us and dwells within.

Today we choose to pay attention to the Voice for God in our mind, for we would be free to be the Son God created one with Himself. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we will be guided in the way of Love—truly helpful, loving and loved.
