Moving From Conflict to Peace

There is no will but God’s.

The idea for today can be regarded as the central thought toward which all our exercises are directed. ²God’s is the only Will. ³When you have recognized this, you have recognized that your will is His. ⁴The belief that conflict is possible has gone. ⁵Peace has replaced the strange idea that you are torn by conflicting goals. ⁶As an expression of the Will of God, you have no goal but His.

There is great peace in today’s idea, and the exercises for today are directed towards finding it. ²The idea itself is wholly true. ³Therefore it cannot give rise to illusions. ⁴Without illusions conflict is impossible.”

²There is no will but God’s. ³I cannot be in conflict.

⁴Then spend several minutes in adding some related thoughts, such as:

⁵I am at peace.
⁶Nothing can disturb me. ⁷My will is God’s.
⁸My will and God’s are one.
⁹God wills peace for His Son.

Joy characterizes peace. ²By this experience [of joy] will you recognize that you have reached it. (A Course in Miracles, W-74.1:1–2:4;3:2-9;6:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 74 Insights.)

The ego believes it is in a battle with God. But it is only an attempt to change the unchangeable. God’s Will is one — the eternal extension of Love. His Love excludes nothing. This is why God’s Will cannot accommodate the ego’s wish for specialness.

The unchangeable unity of His Love is characterized by peace and joy. As we acknowledge that God’s Will is ours, we open our mind to the experience of His Will. The perfect happiness that is characteristic of Love becomes our living experience. Love is Life.

Today we are watchful for thoughts of conflict and replace them with the reminder that there is no conflict in God’s Will nor in ours. As we recognize His Will is ours, we experience joy beyond words and peace that cannot be disturbed.
