Do I Choose God’s World or the Ego’s World?

Heaven itself is reached with empty hands and open minds, which come with nothing to find everything and claim it as their own. We will attempt to reach this state today, with self-deception laid aside, and with an honest willingness to value but the truly valuable and the real.

Should you begin to let yourself collect some needless burdens, or believe you see some difficult decisions facing you, be quick to answer with this simple thought:

I will not value what is valueless, for what is valuable belongs to me.

(A Course in Miracles W-pI.133.13:1-2;14:2-3)

If we find ourselves tense about anything or worried about what the future may bring, these are helpful clues to let us know we have taken the reins ourselves. We have forgotten that “Heaven is reached with empty hands and open minds.” It is helpful for us today to practice noticing when we are collecting needless burdens and quickly hand them over to the Guide within That knows what is truly best in every situation.

Giving time for quiet listening to the Guide That can return us to the truth brings about a thought reversal and helps us remember that we are eternal Spirit, one with God’s World of peace and Love. In this place of quietness, the Holy Spirit brings us an awareness beyond the ego’s world to the formless Love we are eternally. The Holy Spirit brings us to a state of mind where we know we all are eternally safe and loved, no matter what appearances we may be seeing in the ego’s world of separate bodies. We let go of the valueless because we remember that we already have everything that is valuable.
