We Live in Love

Fear is not justified in any form.

Fear is deception. ²It attests that you have seen yourself as you could never be, and therefore look upon a world which is impossible. ³Not one thing in this world is true. ⁴It does not matter what the form in which it may appear. ⁵It witnesses but to your own illusions of yourself. ⁶Let us not be deceived today. ⁷We are the Sons of God. ⁸There is no fear in us, for we are each a part of Love Itself.

How foolish are our fears! ²Would You allow Your Son to suffer? ³Give us faith today to recognize Your Son, and set him free. ⁴Let us forgive him in Your Name, that we may understand his holiness, and feel the love for him which is Your Own as well. (A Course in Miracles, W-240. See also ACIM Lesson 240 Insights.)

Only if we are vulnerable to change is fear justified. But God is one, changeless and changeable. What He creates is invulnerable like Himself. He gives all of Himself to His Creations, so His Creations share His invulnerability.

We have made an image of our self that denies the invulnerability of God’s Creations. This is what we believe we must defend. We are afraid that this self-made identity may be taken away from us. We believe we need to defend it and protect it because it represents our life to us. But this is not the life we share with God. It is just an idol we worship, believing it brings us something we want.

We pay for this with fear, but it need not be. The truth of What we are remains unaffected by this made up image. It is time to forgive the wish that made this image. We are not a body. We are not separate and alone. We do not live in a loveless world. Our Self, the Son of God, lives in Love eternally.

Today we ask the Holy Spirit to help us heal the fearful thoughts that accompany the false identity we have accepted as our own. We want to remember the Love we are. We want to see that Love in every brother. As we accept His help, we will awaken to our eternal Self in Love.
