This Is My Holy Instant of Ielease

Father, it is today that I am free, because my will is Yours. I thought to make another will. Yet nothing that I thought apart from You exists. And I am free because I was mistaken, and did not affect my own reality at all by my illusions. Now I give them up, and lay them down before the feet of truth, to be removed forever from my mind. This is my holy instant of release. Father, I know my will is one with Yours.

And so today we find our glad return to Heaven, which we never really left. The Son of God this day lays down his dreams. The Son of God this day comes home again, released from sin and clad in holiness, with his right mind restored to him at last. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 227, W-pII.227. See also ACIM Lesson 227 Insights.)

In every moment we have a choice. Are we going to insist that our perceptions are correct — that we live in a world of separate images, independent of our thoughts and capable of conflicting with our wishes and our needs? Or are we going to accept the Will we share with God that sees only the unified innocence of eternal Love as real. The first choice inevitably brings with it guilt, fear and a sense of uncertainty and vulnerability. The second choice brings peace and joy as we accept the gifts God wills us to have and be.

Today we choose to lay down our self-imposed limitations and accept the will we share with God. With this choice we release ourselves from bondage to mistaken beliefs and return to Heaven.
