Finding Our Safety in God

Let me perceive no differences today.

Father, You have one Son. And it is he that I would look upon today. He is Your one creation. Why should I perceive a thousand forms in what remains as one? Why should I give this one a thousand names, when only one suffices? For Your Son must bear Your Name, for You created him. Let me not see him as a stranger to his Father, nor as stranger to myself. For he is part of me and I of him, and we are part of You Who are our Source, eternally united in Your Love; eternally the holy Son of God.

We who are one would recognize this day the truth about ourselves. We would come home, and rest in unity. For [at Home in Unity] is peace, and nowhere else can peace be sought and found. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 262, W-pII.262. See also ACIM Lesson 262 Insights.)

Perception of differences — bodies, all forms, even different, private thoughts — is a sure sign we have chosen the ego as our identity and guide. Choosing our Identity as the Son of God means we choose His oneness, His perfect, changeless Love, His peace and His joy. There can be no conflict in His unity, for there is nothing different within what is one.

In this world we have accepted the dream of separation as real. We blinded ourselves to the presence of Love’s unity. We need the help of the Holy Spirit, Who does not believe in our dream of separation, to help us awaken to our Identity in God. He is with us in every moment, ready to show us the truth beyond the loveless dream of fear and guilt. We have sought refuge in illusions of defense and safety that do not work.

Today we open our hearts and minds to the Holy Spirit’s kind and gentle lessons which lead us to our true Safety, our Home in God. With His help, our mistaken perceptions are transformed and we see the safety of Love which surrounds us. And we give thanks.
