Accepting God’s Eternal Gifts

All things are given you. ²God’s trust in you is limitless. ³He knows His Son. ⁴He gives without exception, holding nothing back that can contribute to your happiness. ⁵And yet, unless your will is one with His, His gifts are not received. ⁶But what would make you think there is another will than His?

Here is the paradox that underlies the making of the world. ²This world is not the Will of God, and so it is not real.

Yet in his lonely, senseless wanderings, God’s gifts go with him, all unknown to him. ²He cannot lose them. ³But he will not look at what is given him. ⁴He wanders on, aware of the futility he sees about him everywhere, perceiving how his little lot but dwindles, as he goes ahead to nowhere. ⁵Still he wanders on in misery and poverty, alone though God is with him, and a treasure his so great that everything the world contains is valueless before its magnitude.

³One walks with you Who gently answers all your fears with this one merciful reply, “It is not so.” ⁴He points to all the gifts you have each time the thought of poverty oppresses you, and speaks of His Companionship when you perceive yourself as lonely and afraid.

⁴Be witness in your happiness to how transformed the mind becomes which chooses to accept His gifts, and feel the touch of Christ. (W-166.1:1–2:2;5;11:3-4;15:4)

We have a mighty Companion, Whose sole purpose is to teach us that this dream is not real. We already have all that we need. We are wholly loved and eternally united with the Source of Love. The gift given by our Creator includes all His strength, peace and joy. As we accept our Companion’s lessons, we know we are eternally safe, invulnerable to any images in the dream.

What God gives is given eternally. His strength is ours with His guarantee. It can be helpful to remind ourselves when our peace is disturbed: “God is with me. His strength and Love are mine. I am safe. I rest in His peace.” With this reminder, we ask the Holy Spirit for His vision to help us see the truth beyond the dream.
