Touching Base with the Love We Are

Christ is reborn as but a little Child each time a wanderer would leave his home. ²For he must learn that what he would protect is but this Child, Who comes defenseless and Who is protected by defenselessness. ³Go home with Him from time to time today. ⁴You are as much an alien here as He.

Take time today to lay aside your shield which profits nothing, and lay down the spear and sword you raised against an enemy without existence. ²Christ has called you friend and brother. ³He has even come to ask your help in letting Him go home today, completed and completely. ⁴He has come as does a little child, who must beseech his father for protection and for love. ⁵He rules the universe, and yet He asks unceasingly that you return with Him, and take illusions as your gods no more.

You have not lost your innocence. ²It is for this you yearn. ³This is your heart’s desire. ⁴This is the voice you hear, and this the call which cannot be denied. ⁵The holy Child remains with you. ⁶His home is yours. ⁷Today He gives you His defenselessness, and you accept it in exchange for all the toys of battle you have made. ⁸And now the way is open, and the journey has an end in sight at last. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 182, W-182.10:1–12:8. See also ACIM Lesson 182 Insights.)

In this world it seems that harm is not only possible but inevitable. Death is the one thing that seems certain in this world. When is only a matter of time. Yet the world along with time and death are all illusions. Only our belief in them makes them seem real.

The Christ in our mind remembers the Love we are and our eternal link with our Creator. To free ourselves from the world’s illusions, we need to practice opening to the Christ within, the part of our mind that knows of our innocence and the Love we are. The practice of frequently being still, even for a moment, throughout the day helps us remember our safety and the changelessness of Love.

Love needs no defense. It needs only to be extended without limit. The Source of Love is limitless and it can be given without limit. It can never be lost, though it can be forgotten while we believe in the ego’s dream of separation. We need frequent reminders of What and Where we are in truth. We welcome these reminders each time we are still and welcome the truth that only Love is real.
