Letting God’s Voice Lead Us to Happiness

The ego’s plan for salvation centers around holding grievances. ²It maintains that, if someone else spoke or acted differently, if some external circumstance or event were changed, you would be saved. ³Thus, the source of salvation is constantly perceived as outside yourself. ⁴Each grievance you hold is a declaration, and an assertion in which you believe, that says, “If this were different, I would be saved.” ⁵The change of mind necessary for salvation is thus demanded of everyone and everything except yourself.

God’s plan for salvation works simply because, by following His direction, you seek for salvation where it is. ²But if you are to succeed, as God promises you will, you must be willing to seek there only.

²Ask Him very specifically:

³What would You have me do?
⁴Where would You have me go?
⁵What would You have me say, and to whom?

⁶…let Him tell you what needs to be done by you in His plan for your salvation. ⁷He will answer in proportion to your willingness to hear His Voice. (A Course in Miracles, W-71.2;5:1-2;9:2-7. See also ACIM Lesson 71 Insights.)

We think what will make us happy is our salvation. The ego looks to forms in the world for happiness. But nothing in the ego’s world is real. So any form we find in the world will not bring us lasting happiness.

Joy is an attribute of God’s Love. If we let His Voice direct us in all our doing, we will always be led to recognize His everlasting gift of all of His Love. Nothing in this world can limit the joy that comes with His Love, because only His Love is real.

Today we are willing to be happy. We are willing to let His Voice direct our thoughts and actions.
