Remembering Our Strength Is in Love

There is nothing to fear.

The idea for today simply states a fact. ²It is not a fact to those who believe in illusions, but illusions are not facts. ³In truth there is nothing to fear. ⁴It is very easy to recognize this. ⁵But it is very difficult to recognize it for those who want illusions to be true.

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. ²The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness. ³The instant you are willing to do this there is indeed nothing to fear. (A Course in Miracles, W-48.1:1-5;3:1-3. See also ACIM Lesson 48 Insights.)

The ego is a thought that denies Reality. It is nothing more than an illusion. It has no strength of its own because it has denied the Source of all strength. The ego’s presence in our mind depends only on our belief and allegiance to it.

Our fear always comes from believing an appearance is real. Yet all appearances are illusions made by the ego. The Reality of Love has no form and cannot have an appearance. The Light of Love dispels all appearances and reveals our oneness with our Creator. This fact revealed makes it clear that we have nothing to fear.

God’s strength is ours. There is nothing real that opposes it. When illusions are dispelled, we are certain of our invulnerability. We rest in God. Today we ask for Christ’s vision to help us see past illusions to Love’s presence.
