Claiming Our Light, Joy and Peace

Why would you not be overjoyed to be assured that all the evil that you think you did was never done, that all your sins are nothing, that you are as pure and holy as you were created, and that light and joy and peace abide in you? Your image of yourself cannot withstand the Will of God. You think that this is death, but it is life. You think you are destroyed, but you are saved.

The self you made is not the Son of God. Therefore, this self does not exist at all. And anything it seems to do and think means nothing. It is neither bad nor good. It is unreal, and nothing more than that.

Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God. Over and over this must be repeated, until it is accepted. It is true. Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God. Nothing can touch it, or change what God created as eternal. The self you made, evil and full of sin, is meaningless. Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God, and light and joy and peace abide in you.

If a situation arises that seems to be disturbing, quickly dispel the illusion of fear by repeating these thoughts again. Should you be tempted to become angry with someone, tell him silently:

Light and joy and peace abide in you.
Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 93, W-pI.93.4:1-5:5;6;11:1-4)

God is perfect Love and nothing else. What God creates must be the same, an extension of Himself — Love and nothing else. We are all, collectively, God’s Creation, His one Son — Love and nothing else. This is God’s guarantee that the truth of what we are is innocence.

It does not seem that we are innocent because we have taught ourselves to believe that we are a self in opposition to God’s Will. This could only seem to be true in a dream that denies Love. But a dream is not real. When we wake up from a dream we realize that what seemed to happen in the dream did not occur at all.

As we remind ourselves that our sinlessness is guaranteed by God, and light and joy and peace abide in us, we teach ourselves that we are not the image of a self that we thought we were in the dream. We open our mind to accept that God’s Will is our will. We really do want to be the Love He created us to be. The light and joy and peace of Love are in us now.
