How to Hasten Our Journey Home

My home awaits me. I will hasten there.

If I so choose, I can depart this world entirely. ²It is not death which makes this possible, but it is change of mind about the purpose of the world. ³If I believe it has a value as I see [the world] now, so will it still remain for me. ⁴But if I see no value in the world as I behold it, nothing that I want to keep as mine or search for as a goal, it will depart from me. ⁵For I have not sought for illusions to replace the truth.

Father, my home awaits my glad return. ²Your Arms are open and I hear Your Voice. ³What need have I to linger in a place of vain desires and of shattered dreams, when Heaven can so easily be mine? (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 226, W-226. See also ACIM Lesson 226 Insights.)

We remain tethered to the world as long as we value anything in it. This is why it is so important that we recognize that all the forms in the world are illusions. We don’t value that we know is an illusion.

The curriculum of A Course in Miracles is designed to help us recognize illusions for what they are. We have so thoroughly convinced ourselves that we are a separate identity in a world we believe is real that we cannot simply let it go without resistance. The lessons of the Workbook and the understanding offered through the Text, Manual for Teachers and Clarification of Terms take us on a progressive journey of awakening.

This journey is accelerated as we are willing to welcome the Holy Spirit’s lessons in our mind. His lessons are highly specific to help us release our mistaken beliefs. In the world everyone is different with different beliefs which keep them bound to the world. So our Inner Teacher recognizes what we believe but does not buy into them.

Gradually we accept His lessons and learn that what we thought was valuable is really nothing. Having recognized the valueless, we become open to receive God’s gifts, which we never really lost. We hasten our journey to our Home in God’s Love.

As we learn the images of the world have no substance and can do nothing, we see more clearly beyond them to the Light of Love that is there to be seen with the vision of our true Self. Today we focus on our happy journey by remembering our mighty Companion who walks beside us as we accept the gift of Love that surrounds us and dwells in us.
