Choosing the Guide to Happiness

Your day is not at random. It is set by what you choose to live it with, and how the friend whose counsel you have sought perceives your happiness. You always ask advice before you can decide on anything.

You and your adviser must agree on what you want before it can occur. It is but this agreement that permits all things to happen. Nothing can be caused without some form of union, be it with a dream of judgment or the Voice for God.

It needs but two [you and your advisor, Holy Spirit] who would have happiness this day to promise it to all the world. It needs but two to understand that they cannot decide alone, to guarantee the joy they asked for will be wholly shared. For they have understood the basic law that makes decision powerful, and gives [the decision] all effects that it will ever have. It needs but two. These two are joined before there can be a decision. Let this be the one reminder that you keep in mind, and you will have the day you want, and give it to the world by having it yourself. Your judgment has been lifted from the world by your decision for a happy day. And as you have received, so must you give. (A Course in Miracles,T-30.I.15:1-3;16:2-2-4;17. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Everything we experience is the effect of our choice of an advisor in our decisions. If we experience anything less than perfect peace and supreme joy, we have chosen the ego belief in separation as our advisor.

The ego is the denial of God’s Love and Its attributes of peace and joy. To maintain he ego’s status as our advisor, we must judge all things based on the belief that separation is real. The dream of a world of bodies and forms, conflict and guilt, is the result of this choice.

But we can choose a different advisor Who understands unequivocally that only Love is real. His advice will always guide us to see the Love in all things beyond the appearance of forms.

Let us dedicate today to letting the Holy Spirit advise us about all our perceptions, that we may see the truth. In the acceptance of truth, we will find the perfect happiness of God’s changeless Love.
