Our Peace and Happiness Depend on God’s Gift

I will accept Atonement for myself.

Here is the end of choice. ²For here we come to a decision to accept ourselves as God created us. ³And what is choice except uncertainty of what we are? ⁴There is no doubt that is not rooted here. ⁵There is no question but reflects this one. ⁶There is no conflict that does not entail the single, simple question, “What am I?”

Yet who could ask this question except one who has refused to recognize himself?

Nothing the world believes is true. ²It is a place whose purpose is to be a home where those who claim they do not know themselves can come to question what it is they are. ³And they will come again until the time Atonement is accepted, and they learn it is impossible to doubt yourself, and not to be aware of what you are.

Only acceptance can be asked of you, for what you are is certain.

…our mission is:

³I will accept Atonement for myself, for I remain as God created me.

⁴We have not lost the knowledge that God gave to us when He created us like Him. ⁵We can remember it for everyone, for in creation are all minds as one. ⁶And in our memory is the recall how dear our brothers are to us in truth, how much a part of us is every mind, how faithful they have really been to us, and how our Father’s Love contains them all. (A Course in Miracles, W-139.1:1–2:1;7:1–8:1;11:2-6. See also ACIM Lesson 139 Insights.)

The Course is consistent and unequivocal in its statement that nothing the world believes is true. Our salvation depends on this fact. Beliefs can be changed. We are always free to choose what we believe. Instead of choosing the ego’s denial of reality, we can choose to accept the truth that we remain as God created us. We are still one with Him in His Love. Everyone is one with us in that Love. No exceptions. There are no conditions we must meet to qualify for God’s Love. He has not changed His Mind about His Creations. They remain forever at one with Him.

The only condition is that we must be willing to accept only the truth and nothing but the truth. We must accept no substitutes for God’s Love. Everything the ego offers that seems to be attractive or valuable is a substitute for Love. Being the denial of Reality, the ego offers only illusions with no meaning whatsoever in truth.

Today we make a choice. We choose to accept God’s gift of all of His Love. We welcome His loving embrace. We take comfort in the changelessness of His Love. As we look upon the world today, we remind ourselves that beyond what we see in the world is the Reality of God’s Love. Our happiness and peace depend upon this practice.
