The Voice of God Is Within Me

Change

Only an instant does this world endure.
(ACIM - lesson 300)


What does this mean to me? It means that the miserable state I feel in any given moment can be changed by changing my thoughts or attitudes. It is a shift which comes about through my willingness to give those miserable thoughts to the Light of the Holy Spirit in me. They can bust like a soap bubble and disappear into the nothingness of false belief from which they have come.

Only an instant does this world endure.

This is the thought that can be used to say that death and sorrow are the certain lot of all who come here. YET this is also the idea that lets no false perception keep us in its hold nor represent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene. And it is this serenity we seek, unclouded, obvious, and sure today.

We can use Byron Katie’s method and ask of each negative thought, ‘Is this true?’
After having used this question, we can pray with today’s prayer:

We seek Your holy world today.
For we, Your loving Sons, have lost our way a while.

But we have listened to Your Voice
and learned exactly what to do
to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity.

And we give thanks today
the world endures but for an instant.

We would go beyond that tiny instant to eternity.

Breathe….. breathe… breathe…
Be still…...... go Home into the peace of God, ever-present in our holy minds.

AMEN
