Reminding Myself Who I Am

by Rev. Peggy Rivera, O.M.C.

Rev. Peggy RiveraWhen I opened to A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 56 for today I was so grateful that what I read was really what I needed to hear, “My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.”

I had been feeling a little down because of some family misperceptions. I say misperceptions because I know from the Course that whenever I am unhappy about something I know it isn’t real, it is my perceptions from an unhealed mind.

If I get into the drama of picking apart all of the feelings of injustice that I feel, I can get lost in a dark and lonely dream. I have to remind myself who I really am and who we all are, and how we all get sucked in to the roles we play here on the earth plane.

When I remind myself that we make up these roles as we go along, but the truth of who we are as eternal Love is never changing, I can see there really isn’t anything to be upset about.

I realize that I have to go to Holy Spirit continually to help me see things differently. I need to let go of the image that I have created of myself so I can easily see the truth. As I let go of the image that I see in the world, I make room for seeing the reality of God and His Love for all of us. I see He doesn’t see the darkness I get wrapped up in because darkness does not exist in the light. In God’s Light there is only Love, joy, peace, beauty, creativity, etc. And He wants all of this for us. He gives all of this to us. When we get lost in the drama of the world, we don’t recognize God’s gifts. What a shame it is to miss out on all of His gifts.

I ask for my eyes to be opened to see only Love. I ask to be released from my fears and insecurity. I know that every time I begin to let myself fall back into the thoughts of the ego I will be judgmental of others and myself. It feels like being depressed and full of darkness. I love that, when I call on the help of Holy Spirit, my Higher Self, I am quickly and pleasantly reminded to see the beauty in everyone and everything. I know that I get to choose how I live — in peace and Love or in dark depression. I think that’s a no-brainer.
