Being a Messenger of Love

Let this day be a day of stillness and of quiet listening. Your Father wills you hear His Word today. He calls to you from deep within your mind where He abides. Hear Him today. No peace is possible until His Word is heard around the world; until your mind, in quiet listening, accepts the message that the world must hear to usher in the quiet time of peace.

This world will change through you. No other means can save it, for God’s plan is simply this: The Son of God is free to save himself, given the Word of God [the Holy Spirit] to be his Guide, forever in his mind and at his side to lead him surely to his Father’s house by his own will, forever free as God’s. He is not led by force, but only love. He is not judged, but only sanctified.

In stillness we will hear God’s Voice today without intrusion of our petty thoughts, without our personal desires, and without all judgment of His holy Word. We will not judge ourselves today, for what we are can not be judged. We stand apart from all the judgments which the world has laid upon the Son of God. It knows him not. Today we will not listen to the world, but wait in silence for the Word of God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 125, W-pI.125.1-3. See also ACIM Lesson 125 Insights.)

While we identify with the ego’s belief in separation, we are constantly tempted to react to the appearances of the world. We react to them because we believe they are real. But the Course is teaching us that this world is nothing more than a dream.

We have Help to wake up from this dream of guilt, fear and death. God gave us His Word, the Holy Spirit, in our mind to teach us to discern between illusion and Reality, separation and Love’s oneness. The practice of pausing before reacting to connect with the center of peace within interrupts the chain that continues the ego’s reign.

We are not the ego. Our true Identity is the Love of God. Interrupting the chain of reactions gives us an opportunity to let the Holy Spirit replace our fearful perceptions with Christ’s vision. It enables us to see past the images of separation to the unifying Presence of Love. From this state of mind, we serve as messengers of His Word to bring peace and healing to the world.

Today let’s join together to be messengers of Love in the world.
