Peace Is Union

⁵There is nothing else for you to find except the peace of God, unless you seek for misery and pain.”

Yet you can ask as easily for love, for happiness, and for eternal life in peace that has no ending. ²Ask for this, and you can only win. ³To ask for what you have already must succeed. ⁴To ask that what is false be true can only fail. ⁵Forgive yourself for vain imaginings, and seek no longer what you cannot find.

²But you must change your mind about the purpose of the world, if you would find escape. ³You will be bound till all the world is seen by you as blessed, and everyone made free of your mistakes and honored as he is. ⁴You made him not; no more yourself. ⁵And as you free the one, the other is accepted as he is.

…peace is union, if it be of God. ⁷We seek no further. ⁸We are close to home, and draw still nearer every time we say:

⁹There is no peace except the peace of God, and I am glad and thankful it is so. (A Course in Miracles, W-200.1:5;3:1-5;5:2-5;11:6-9. See also ACIM Lesson 200 Insights.)

The ego’s purpose for the world is to make separation real. This could never happen except in dreams. Images of lack, loss, sickness and death are all ego images that seem to “prove” separation is real. In the ego’s universe, nothing escapes its laws.

We need to change our mind about the purpose we would serve. With that change of mind, the world we experience is transformed. When we want only the peace of God, we find happiness and peace.

God’s purpose for the world is only to maintain the oneness of His Love. He created His Son to remain eternally one with Himself. That is His gift, forever true. To seek the peace of God is to seek to remember our true Self, His Son. As we accept our union with God, the dream of separation fades away into a nothingness from which it came.

Today we are willing to accept our union with our Father and find the Love we have always been.
