Living in the World While Waking Up

Use all the little names and symbols which delineate the world of darkness. ²Yet accept them not as your reality. ³The Holy Spirit uses all of them, but He does not forget creation has one Name, one meaning, and a single Source which unifies all things within Itself. ⁴Use all the names the world bestows on them but for convenience, yet do not forget they share the Name of God along with you.

Father, our Name [Identity] is Yours. ²In It we are united with all living things, and You Who are their one Creator. ³What we made and call by many different names is but a shadow we have tried to cast across Your Own reality. ⁴And we are glad and thankful we were wrong. ⁵All our mistakes we give to You, that we may be absolved from all effects our errors seemed to have. ⁶And we accept the truth You give, in place of every one of them. ⁷Your Name is our salvation and escape from what we made. ⁸Your Name unites us in the oneness which is our inheritance and peace. ⁹Amen. (A Course in Miracles, W-184.11;15. See also ACIM Lesson 184 Insights.)

As God’s creation, our function is to extend Love and nothing else. While we believe we are in the world of limitation and form, we need to use the symbols of the world to communicate and express the Love we are. Here we have guidance in how to live in the world while waking up to the truth that God shares His Identity with us. But we must learn to use the symbols while remembering they are not real.

We learn this by following the Holy Spirit’s lead. We have duped ourselves into believing the world of separation is real. But the Holy Spirit recognizes our mistaken beliefs while remembering they are not true. Thus He is in the unique position to help us use the symbols of the world while we learn to let go of our belief in their reality.

We dedicate this day to following His lead to be expressions of Love in the world.
