The Benefit of Welcoming God’s Peace

This is a day of stillness and of peace.

Christ’s vision looks through me today. ²His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace, and offers this same vision to the world. ³And I accept this vision in its name, both for myself and for the world as well. ⁴What loveliness we look upon today! ⁵What holiness we see surrounding us! ⁶And it is given us to recognize it is a holiness in which we share; it is the Holiness of God Himself.

This day my mind is quiet, to receive the Thoughts You offer me. ²And I accept what comes from You, instead of from myself. ³I do not know the way to You. ⁴But You are wholly certain. ⁵Father, guide Your Son along the quiet path that leads to You. ⁶Let my forgiveness be complete, and let the memory of You return to me. (A Course in Miracles, W-291. See also ACIM Lesson 291 Insights.)

The ego constantly defends against stillness and peace. It clutters our mind with myriad forms of conflict. Some of these conflicts we seem to win, and others we lose. Some seem to threaten our life, which the ego welcomes because it reinforces its belief in the reality of death. All this clutter the ego fosters shows that the ego is not our friend.

We are not controlled by the ego. It is only our wish for specialness that puts it in charge of the dream. We have a choice. We can choose to welcome stillness and peace. But because we have been enamored with the ego’s goal for so long, it takes time, vigilance and practice to quiet our mind and welcome God’s peace in place of the ego’s chaos.

The willingness to pause and welcome God’s peace in our mind opens the door to freedom from the ego. It opens our mind to Christ’s vision, which sees the presence of Love and peace everywhere. Every effort to welcome the peace of God brings us closer to awakening to the Love of God within us.

The blessing that God offers us becomes clearer as we let go of our mistaken beliefs in separation through forgiveness. In peace we remember the Self God created eternally one with Him. We practice welcoming God’s peace today.
