Claiming the Power of Love in Us

I am one Self, united with my Creator.

Today’s idea accurately describes you as God created you. You are one within yourself, and one with Him. Yours is the unity of all creation. Your perfect unity makes change in you impossible. You do not accept this, and you fail to realize it must be so, only because you believe that you have changed yourself already.

You see yourself as a ridiculous parody on God’s creation; weak, vicious, ugly and sinful, miserable and beset with pain. Such is your version of yourself; a self divided into many war­ring parts, separate from God, and tenuously held together by its erratic and capricious maker, to which you pray. It does not hear your prayers, for it is deaf. It does not see the oneness in you, for it is blind. It does not understand you are the Son of God, for it is senseless and understands nothing.

You have seen the extent of your lack of mental discipline, and of your need for mind training. It is necessary that you be aware of this, for [your lack of mental discipline] is indeed a hindrance to your advance.

…you have not yet formed the habit of using the idea, “I am one Self, united with my Creator,” as an automatic response to temptation.

Assure yourself:

I am one Self, united with my Creator, at one with every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and in peace. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 95, W-pI.95.1-2;4:4-5;5:3;11:2. See also ACIM Lesson 95 Insights.)

This passage makes it clear that identifying with the ego as our self is not in our best interests. The consequences of this misidentification are not what we really want. We want to experience the peace of God. We want to know that we are safe, protected by the eternal Love of God. We want to feel the joy of the limitless flow of Love that unifies us with every brother and with our Creator.

Let’s join together hourly in remembering the one Self we are, united with our Creator, limitless in the power of Love, free to be as Love created us.
