Finding Our Refuge in God’s Love

Sin [separation from Love] is the only thought that makes the goal of God seem unat­tainable. …What else but sin [lack of Love] en­genders our attacks? What else but sin could be the source of guilt, demanding punishment and suffering? And what but sin could be the source of fear…?

Father, I would not be insane today. I would not be afraid of love, nor seek for refuge in its opposite. For love can have no opposite. You are the Source of everything there is. And everything that is remains with You, and You with it.

Father, I did not make myself, although in my insanity I thought I did. Yet, as Your Thought, I have not left my Source, remaining part of Who created me. Your Son, my Father, calls on You today. Let me remember You created me. Let me remember my Identity. And let my sinlessness arise again before Christ’s vision, through which I would look upon my brothers and myself today.

Now is our Source remembered, and Therein we find our true Identity at last. Holy indeed are we, because our Source can know no sin. And we who are His Sons are like each other, and alike to Him. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 259, W-pII.259:1:1,3-5;2. 260:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 259 Insights.)

The world is the ego’s refuge, a dream where it can hide from the oneness of God’s Love. Because the ego is the belief that separation is real, it cannot exist in Love’s oneness. Because only Love is real, separation does not exist at all. Yet the world with all its separate images seems real only because we believe it is true. It is this mistaken belief that must be undone for our mind to return to the refuge of God’s Love. Forgiveness, guided by the Holy Spirit is the way we undo our mistaken beliefs.

Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts today in the way of Love. I want to remember my true Self, the holy Son of God. I want to remember that I and all my brothers are Love and nothing else. I want to remember I am eternally safe in the Heart of God.
