We Put Love in Charge of Our Thoughts

²My mind holds only what I think with God.

³That is a fact, and represents the truth of What you are and What your Father is. ⁴It is this thought by which the Father gave creation to the Son, establishing the Son as co-creator with Himself. ⁵It is this thought that fully guarantees salvation to the Son. ⁶For in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares. ⁷Lack of forgiveness blocks this thought from his awareness. ⁸Yet it is forever true.

²Because [forms] are illusions, they are not perceived to be but what they are; defenses that protect your unforgiving thoughts from being seen and recognized. ³Their purpose is to show you something else, and hold correction off through self-deceptions made to take its place.

…place [God’s] Mind in charge of all the thoughts you will receive that day.

They will not come from you alone, for they will all be shared with Him. ²And so each one will bring the message of His Love to you, returning messages of yours to Him. ³So will communion with the Lord of Hosts be yours, as He Himself has willed it be. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Review IV, W-rIV.in.2:2-8;3:2-3;5:4–6:3. See also ACIM Lesson 121 Insights.)

Most of the thoughts of which we are aware come from the ego. They are formations based on the past, used either to justify guilt or anger or to project a future like the past. These thought forms are illusions, but our belief in them makes them seem real. They cast a shadow on the present making us unaware our real Thoughts we share with God.

It is essential to the ego that this shadow be maintained so it floods our mind with a constant stream of meaningless thoughts to hide our only real Thoughts, the Thoughts of Love we share Him. To dispel the shadow of the ego, we need to put Love in charge of all our thoughts. The ego’s thoughts keep us in darkness. We want to welcome the Light of Love. We want the peace of God. Today we practice stepping back and letting Love lead the way.
