Letting Love Direct Our Thoughts and Actions

What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought [judgments]. I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable. There is no sense in trying to understand it. But there is every reason to let it go, and make room for what can be seen and understood and loved. I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so. Is not this a better choice than the one I made before?

The thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything be­cause I am trying to think without God. What I call “my” thoughts are not my real thoughts. My real thoughts are the thoughts I think with God. I am not aware of them because I have made my thoughts to take their place. I am willing to rec­ognize that my thoughts do not mean anything, and to let them go. I choose to have them be replaced by what they were in­tended to replace. My thoughts are meaningless, but all creation lies in the thoughts I think with God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 51, W-pI.51.3:2-8;3:2-8. See also ACIM Lesson 51 Insights.)

Because God is Love, our real thoughts are thoughts of Love. These loving thoughts are all inclusive because Love makes no exceptions. God’s Love is given without condition or limit.

In the world it seems that we have different levels of love. Some love is reserved for certain special people. Other love is given with expectations of something of value to be returned, even if it’s only an expression of thanks.

This love is based on judging whether the focus of this love is worthy of it. Judgments can only be made if there is a belief that what is being judged is separate from the perceiver. To perceive the other as separate, we must first believe that we are separate. This belief is an attack on the oneness of God’s Love. We need to let go of this belief because it is costing us the awareness of God’s gift of Love and the peace and joy that come with it.

Today we practice pausing to remember Love and let Love direct our thoughts, our words and actions. By welcoming the loving thoughts we think with God, we remember Love we are.
