Finding Our Real Thoughts of Love

³There is no relationship between what is real and what you think is real. ⁴Nothing that you think are your real thoughts resemble your real thoughts in any respect. ⁵Nothing that you think you see bears any resemblance to what vision will show you.

You think with the Mind of God. ²Therefore you share your thoughts with Him, as He shares His with you. ³They are the same thoughts, because they are thought by the same Mind. ⁴To share is to make alike, or to make one. ⁵Nor do the thoughts you think with the Mind of God leave your mind, because thoughts do not leave their source. ⁶Therefore, your thoughts are in the Mind of God, as you are. ⁷They are in your mind as well, where He is. ⁸As you are part of His Mind, so are your thoughts part of His Mind.

⁴We will not let the thoughts of the world hold us back. ⁵We will not let the beliefs of the world tell us that what God would have us do is impossible. ⁶Instead, we will try to recognize that only what God would have us do is possible.

…tell yourself gently:

⁴My real thoughts are in my mind. ⁵I would like to find them.

⁶Then try to go past all the unreal thoughts that cover the truth in your mind, and reach to the eternal.

…this is no idle game, but an exercise in holiness and an attempt to reach the Kingdom of Heaven. (A Course in Miracles, W-45.1:3–2:8;4:4-6;6:3-6;8:7. See also ACIM Lesson 45 Insights.)

We have so thoroughly indoctrinated ourselves into believing the ego’s make-believe world is real that it is hard to fathom that the thoughts we are aware of are not our real thoughts. Yet this fact is the basis upon which our release from the ego’s limitations rests.

We can dispel the veil of the ego’s thoughts which hide our real thoughts if we are willing to reach for the eternal changeless Love of God. God’s Thoughts extend His Love. Our real thoughts we share with Him join in the limitless extension of Love. They dwell in Heaven, the Home of our Creator and our true Self.

God wills that we remain one with Him. It must be possible to awaken to what has always been real. Today we welcome the thoughts of Love we share with our Source.
