Finding Peace in Love’s Oneness

I am upset because I see a meaningless world.

The importance of this idea lies in the fact that it contains a correction for a major perceptual distortion. ²You think that what upsets you is a frightening world, or a sad world, or a violent world, or an insane world. ³All these attributes are given it by you. ⁴The world is meaningless in itself.

What is meaningless is neither good nor bad. ²Why, then, should a meaningless world upset you? ³If you could accept the world as meaningless and let the truth be written upon it for you, it would make you indescribably happy. ⁴But because it is meaningless, you are impelled to write upon it what you would have it be. ⁵It is this you see in it. ⁶It is this that is meaningless in truth. ⁷Beneath your words is written the Word of God. ⁸The truth upsets you now, but when your words have been erased, you will see His. (A Course in Miracles, W-12.1;5:1-8. See also ACIM Lesson 12 Insights.)

The world has no meaning of its own. It only seems to have meaning because of what we project on it. We project our belief that we are separate from everything. We see differences in the world that seem to conflict, sometimes resulting in battles, others that seem to make us happy. All of these images only serve to reinforce our belief in being separate and alone.

If we are willing to acknowledge that we do not know what anything means in the world, we make way for the Holy Spirit to show us God’s meaning for everything. We see the presence of Love’s oneness instead of differences that conflict. We find joy in joining with God’s Love. We find peace in Love’s oneness where no conflicting differences exist. Today we are willing to accept the Holy Spirit’s meaning of the world in place of our own.
