Love Is Our Constant Companion

…ideas leave not their source. If this be true, how can you be apart from God? How could you walk the world alone and separate from your Source?

You cannot walk the world apart from God, because you could not be without Him. He is what your life is. Where you are He is. There is one life. That life you share with Him. Nothing can be apart from Him and live.

Yet where He is, there must be holiness as well as life. No attribute of His remains unshared by everything that lives. What lives is holy as Himself, because what shares His life is part of Holiness, and could no more be sinful than the sun could choose to be of ice; the sea elect to be apart from water, or the grass to grow with roots suspended in the air.

There is a light in you which cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 156, W-pI.156.1:3-5;2:4-4:2. See also ACIM Lesson 156 Insights.)

The Truth in us, the Thought of Love in the Mind of Love, can never die. This Thought of Love is Love’s extension with an unbreakable connection with Its Source. We share Love’s invulnerability because we remain eternally the Thought of Love. Nothing else exists.

The fear and guilt, conflict and sadness, we feel in the world comes from believing in a false image of what we are. Being an illusion, this image is vulnerable because it has no substance, no reality in truth. It is maintained only by our belief in its reality.

But beliefs can change. So there is always an underlying sense of doubt as long as we believe we are this image of a body with a personality. We feel that something is missing. Each of us in our own way is searching to find what will fill that emptiness. But as long as we look for it in the dream world of illusions, the void will remain. We cannot fill the hole with meaningless images.

Yet throughout our journey in this wilderness, Love walks with us. It has never left. We are simply unaware of It because of our identification with an identity that denies Love. Still, our life depends upon the eternal presence of Love, which is the Source of Life.

As we remind ourselves that we walk with Love as our constant Companion, the Light of Love begins to dawn upon our mind. Love’s Light shines through the false images and we feel the Love that is in us and all about us. The certainty of Love’s changelessness brings us comfort and peace when we begin to remember Who we are.
