Awakening to Heaven’s Happiness and Peace

Heaven is the decision I must make.

Heaven is chosen consciously. ²The choice cannot be made until alternatives are accurately seen and understood. ³All that is veiled in shadows must be raised to understanding, to be judged again, this time with Heaven’s help. ⁴And all mistakes in judgment that the mind had made before are open to correction, as the truth dismisses them as causeless. ⁵Now are they without effects. ⁶They cannot be concealed, because their nothingness is recognized.

The conscious choice of Heaven is as sure as is the ending of the fear of hell, when [hell] is raised from its protective shield of unawareness, and is brought to light.

We make the choice for Heaven as we wake, and spend five minutes making sure that we have made the one decision that is sane. ²We recognize we make a conscious choice between what has existence and what has nothing but an appearance of the truth.

Before we close our eyes in sleep tonight, we reaffirm the choice that we have made each hour in between. ²And now we give the last five minutes of our waking day to the decision with which we awoke. ³As every hour passed, we have declared our choice again, in a brief quiet time devoted to maintaining sanity. ⁴And finally, we close the day with this, acknowledging we chose but what we want:

⁵Heaven is the decision I must make. ⁶I make it now, and will not change my mind, because it is the only thing I want. (A Course in Miracles, W-138.9:1–10:1;11:1-2;12. See also ACIM Lesson 138 Insights.)

We make the choice for Heaven when we choose to actively listen to the Holy Spirit. He will teach us to understand our mistaken choices in the world. With this understanding we will recognize that choosing separation in the world brings us nothing that we really want.

We will learn that we have chosen empty illusions with no meaning or value and freely let them go as valueless. Without interference by mistaken values, we awaken to the Heaven of God’s Love. Truth replaces illusions that were hidden beneath unconscious choices for the meaningless.

We make the decision for Heaven by actively listening to the Holy Spirit’s lessons in Love, moment by moment throughout the day, every day.
