Letting the Light of Love Shine Brighter

I feel the Love of God within me now.

There is a light in you the world can not perceive. ²And with its eyes you will not see this light, for you are blinded by the world. ³Yet you have eyes to see it. ⁴It is there for you to look upon. ⁵It was not placed in you to be kept hidden from your sight. ⁶This light is a reflection of the thought we practice now. ⁷To feel the Love of God within you is to see the world anew, shining in innocence, alive with hope, and blessed with perfect charity and love.

Who could feel fear in such a world as this? ²It welcomes you, rejoices that you came, and sings your praises as it keeps you safe from every form of danger and of pain. ³It offers you a warm and gentle home in which to stay a while. ⁴It blesses you throughout the day, and watches through the night as silent guardian of your holy sleep. ⁵It sees salvation in you, and protects the light in you, in which it sees its own.

⁵If you feel the Love of God within you, you will look out on a world of mercy and of love. (A Course in Miracles, W-189.1:1–2:5;5:5. See also ACIM Lesson 189 Insights.)

Only our wish for specialness keeps us from seeing the presence of Love in everyone, everywhere. This wish for specialness appears as bodies and myriad forms. It brings with it the ideas of time and space which reinforce the perception of separation that is required to make specialness seem real.

This is what we must forgive, with the Holy Spirit’s help. His vision looks past form, for it does not give form reality. It sees only Love.

As we practice choosing Christ’s vision, the Light of Love shines brighter in our world. Our unity with every brother becomes more clear. Forgiveness welcomes Love and appearances that cause fear diminish. We feel the Love of God within. Joy replaces sadness. Gratitude fills our heart, for we remember we dwell in Love.
