Being Willing to Return Home to God

Is it not [God] Who knows the way to you? You need not know the way to Him. Your part is simply to allow all obstacles that you have interposed between the Son and God the Father to be quietly removed forever. God will do His part in joyful and immediate response. Ask and receive. But do not make demands, nor point the road to God by which He should appear to you. The way to reach Him is merely to let Him be. For in that way is your reality proclaimed as well.

And so today we do not choose the way in which we go to Him. But we do choose to let Him come. And with this choice we rest. And in our quiet hearts and open minds, His Love will blaze its pathway of itself. What has not been denied is surely there, if it be true and can be surely reached. …Through every opened door His Love shines outward from its home within, and lightens up the world in innocence. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 189, W-pI.189.8:1-9:5,8. See also ACIM Lesson 189 Insights.)

Forgiveness is the means for removing the barriers we have built to keep God’s Love out. The oneness of God’s Love cannot coexist with the separation of the ego thought system. When we identify with the ego, the Light of God’s Love is unknown to us.

The practice of letting go of our plans to find what we believe will bring us peace and happiness clears the way to welcome the lessons of God’s Teacher. As we resign as our own teacher and welcome the Holy Spirit’s healing lessons, the self-made barriers against Love fade away.

This is forgiveness. This is how we let the Light of Love shine forth from within to bless our brothers and the world. As we let this Light extend, we also experience its blessing. Today we declare our willingness to be taught the way of Love. We are willing to return Home.
