Being Thankful for the Truth of Love

Be in my mind, my Father, through the day.

Be in my mind, my Father, when I wake, and shine on me throughout the day today. ²Let every minute be a time in which I dwell with You. ³And let me not forget my hourly thanksgiving that You have remained with me, and always will be there to hear my call to You and answer me. ⁴As evening comes, let all my thoughts be still of You and of Your Love. ⁵And let me sleep sure of my safety, certain of Your care, and happily aware I am Your Son.

This is as every day should be. ²Today, practice the end of fear. ³Have faith in Him Who is your Father. ⁴Trust all things to Him. ⁵Let Him reveal all things to you, and be you undismayed because you are His Son. (A Course in Miracles, W-232. See also ACIM Lesson 232 Insights.)

Gratitude is key to awakening to the Love we are. The ego is the antithesis of gratitude. It is never satisfied with the present moment. It wants to change things and make them to its own liking. Even when it seems to succeed at this, it is not satisfied. Its underlying attitude is to seek and not find. Dissatisfaction is its general state of mind. It began with the thought of dissatisfaction with the oneness of God’s Love.

The way out of this dismal perspective is thanksgiving for the truth. When we are grateful for Love, grateful for the Self God created as the extension of Love, we experience the satisfaction that comes from remembering we are one in the Love of God.

Today we call upon our true Self and welcome Its vision, which sees only Love because that is what It is. Fear disappears as we recognize the Love in which we dwell; the Love that is every brother. This is the eternal gift we give to ourselves, our brothers and our Creator.
