A Practice That Will Return Us to Love

We ask for rest today, and quietness unshaken by the world’s appearances. ²We ask for peace and stillness, in the midst of all the turmoil born of clashing dreams. ³We ask for safety and for happiness, although we seem to look on danger and on sorrow.

“I rest in God.” ²This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. ³“I rest in God.” ⁴This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is.

In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future and no past regrets. ²In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all. (A Course in Miracles, W-109.1:1-3;2:1-4;5:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 109 Insights.)

We have been given a very simple practice that can transform our mind to awareness of a world beyond every dream. It is the real world God created one with Himself. This is where we have always been, no matter what dream we have dreamed.

“I rest in God.” The frequent reminder of this in our mind can help us step away from fear, guilt, sadness and a sense of loss. Whenever we feel anxious, we can affirm this in our mind as a way to bring us back to remembrance of our true Home. This affirmation of the truth cannot be repeated too often.

Each time we remind ourselves of this fact, we help our mind awaken to the awareness of the Life we live in God. It is a call to remember that we live in eternal unity with the Love of God. This is our natural state. We rest in God, where nothing can disturb our peace or disrupt the joy we share with Him.
