We Are Safely At Home in Love

A meaningless world engenders fear. The totally insane engenders fear because it is completely undependable, and offers no grounds for trust. Nothing in madness is dependable. It holds out no safety and no hope. But such a world is not real. I have given it the illusion of reality, and have suffered from my belief in it. Now I choose to withdraw this belief, and place my trust in reality. In choosing this, I will escape all the effects of the world of fear, because I am acknowledging that it does not exist.

God did not create a meaningless world. How can a meaningless world exist if God did not create it? He is the Source of all meaning, and everything that is real is in His Mind. It is in my mind too, because He created [everything that is real] with me. Why should I continue to suffer from the effects of my own insane thoughts, when the perfection of creation is my home? Let me remember the power of my decision, and recognize where I really abide. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 53, W-pI.53:3-4. See also ACIM Lesson 53 Insights.)

It seems that we are really at the mercy of outside forces from the world, which we cannot control. Accidents happen. People seem to do helpful and harmful things unexpectedly. We try to arrange our world to our liking, yet our best efforts still leave us feeling out of control. This is because all our efforts to manipulate the world are focused on illusions, which obey no laws that would make them reliable.

Only what is changeless is reliable. The Love of God is changeless. We can be confident that all God’s Love and gifts are ours now because He gave them to His Son in His Creation. We have been given all that is Real. To know we have these gifts, we have to let go of our insistence on making the world’s illusions seem real. We have to give up our belief in the thought of separation from Love.

We already have the help we need to correct our mistaken beliefs. We need only choose the Holy Spirit as our Guide in all our thoughts and doing. As we let ourselves be taught to let go of the unreal and accept the real, changeless Love of God, we find peace. We remember we are Love and we are Loved. We remember we are at Home in the safety of Love.
