The Practice That Returns Us to Heaven

Today He speaks to you. His Voice awaits your silence, for His Word can not be heard until your mind is quiet for a while, and meaningless desires have been stilled. Await His Word in quiet. There is peace within you to be called upon today, to help make ready your most holy mind to hear the Voice for its Creator speak.

He speaks from nearer than your heart to you. His Voice is closer than your hand. His Love is everything you are and that He is; the same as you, and you the same as He.

It is your [true] voice to which you listen as He speaks to you. It is your word He speaks. It is the Word of freedom and of peace, of unity of will and purpose, with no separation nor division in the single Mind of Father and of Son. In quiet listen to your Self to­day, and let Him tell you God has never left His Son, and you have never left your Self.

Only be quiet. You will need no rule but this, to let your practicing today lift you above the thinking of the world, and free your vision from the body’s eyes. Only be still and listen. You will hear the Word in which the Will of God the Son joins in His Father’s Will, at one with it, with no illusions interposed be­tween the wholly indivisible and true. As every hour passes by today, be still a moment and remind yourself you have a special purpose for this day; in quiet to receive the Word of God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 125, W-pI.125.6;7:2-9:5. See also ACIM Lesson 125 Insights.)

The ego feeds our mind a constant stream of meaningless thoughts to keep us distracted from the quiet Voice for God within. These thoughts are meaningless because they are based on the illusion of separation from the oneness of God’s Love. Separation denies Love’s oneness. God’s Love threatens the ego because, were we to accept His Love as ours, the ego would cease to seem to be.

Going to the quiet place of peace in our mind opens us to receive the Voice for Truth. In quiet, every perceived problem is resolved. In quiet we remember our True Self. We accept Christ’s vision and see the loving reality of every brother. The practice of pausing and quieting our minds leads us Home to Heaven.
