It’s Time to Choose Everything Instead of Nothing

³Deny your own Identity, and this is what remains. ⁴You look on chaos and proclaim it is yourself.”

Yet what is it except a game you play in which Identity can be denied? ²You are as God created you. ³All else but this one thing is folly to believe. ⁴In this one thought is everyone set free. ⁵In this one truth are all illusions gone. ⁶In this one fact is sinlessness proclaimed to be forever part of everything, the central core of its existence and its guarantee of immortality.

But let today’s idea [I am the holy Son of God Himself] find a place among your thoughts and you have risen far above the world, and all the worldly thoughts that hold it prisoner. ²And from this place of safety and escape you will return and set it free. ³For he who can accept his true Identity is truly saved. ⁴And his salvation is the gift he gives to everyone, in gratitude to Him Who pointed out the way to happiness that changed his whole perspective of the world. (A Course in Miracles, W-191.2:3-4;4:1–5:4. See also ACIM Lesson 191 Insights.)

A single change in what we choose to believe is our identity can free us from the world and awaken us to our true Identity as God’s Son. This choice disowns the mistaken identification with the body as our identity. For the body to be real, separation must be real. But God’s Creation is one with no separation, no differences.

We have learned and over learned that we are a body, with a unique personality that defines us as different from everyone and every thing. This is so important in what we believe that anything that seems to suggest that it is not true or real is perceived as a threat. Our defenses arise immediately to protect this limited identity.

The choice for freedom is simple but it is difficult because of our fear that we will lose the identity we treasure. Yet we treasure an empty image to the exclusion of the Reality of God’s Love, joy and peace. It is time to stop choosing nothing and choose everything by accepting God’s gift of all of Himself to His Son, our true Self.

Today is a day to walk with our mind open to the Voice for Love. It will guide us to see beyond the meaningless forms to the oneness of Love that is our Home. Following this Guide is the choice to be free and be as God created His Son to be.
