Accepting the Loving Thoughts We Share with God

We practice coming nearer to the light in us today. We take our wandering thoughts, and gently bring them back to where they fall in line with all the thoughts we share with God. We will not let them stray. We let the light within our minds direct [our wandering thoughts] to come home. We have betrayed [the thoughts we share with God], ordering that they depart from us. But now we call them back, and wash them clean of strange desires and disordered wishes. We restore to [our wandering thoughts] the holiness of their inheritance.

Thus are our minds restored with [the thoughts we think with God], and we acknowledge that the peace of God still shines in us, and from us to all living things that share our life. We will forgive them all, absolving all the world from what we thought it did to us. For it is we who make the world as we would have it. Now we choose that it be innocent, devoid of sin and open to salvation. And we lay our saving blessing on it, as we say:

The peace of God is shining in me now.
Let all things shine upon me in that peace,
And let me bless them with the light in me.

(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 188, W-pI.188.9-10. See also ACIM Lesson 188 Insights.)

The peace of God brings with it the Light of Love. As we let ourselves dwell in the peace of God, we become like a lighthouse, broadcasting the Light of Love to all who seem to be lost in their wandering thoughts. The peace of God is forever shining in us. As we practice letting the peace of God within us become stronger in our awareness, our Light shines brighter and that Light of Love reflects back to us, reminding us of the Love we are. Our joy is magnified as we join with our brothers in the remembrance of the loving Thoughts we share with God.
