The goal is peace. It can be ever-changing, but the goal is peace. A Peace Within that knows that whatever I choose.... hmmmm... today I will think on this....
After these past years, peace, for me, means an unconscious place within that is content just being alive to experience life. It is loving and aware, alive with excitement, knowing that there is so much out there in the world for each and every one of us to explore. Its being able to give to others without restriction. It's allowing myself to be and to experience every beautiful aspect of every single moment of the day, and seeking to discover more. It's knowing that with every decision, choice, and action, comes an effect, and that this is part of that discovery and life itself is about. And that when we come to that effect or consequence, that we take a deep breath inward, connect with our inner knowledge once again, and make a new decision, choice, and action plan. And this is all done with the integrity of the situation, rather than the hidden meaning or intent. Its finding our truth within, a gentle and loving honesty that allows. Just allows us to be.
To be quiet and still, in this fast paced world. What if we saw within each and every person their unique gift. What would this look like, how would this feel. What if, upon meeting someone for the first time, we stopped and met with their soul, their inner being. What if we felt them. What if we recognized, saw, and felt their spirit first rather than our reflection of our self, our ego, our fears and judgement.
What if, upon birth, we asked to recognize and see the spark of beauty within each individual and work towards nurturing this. What if we all had the same opportunity to be the best 'me' that we could all be. What if this was the most important role as a parent.
Crazy crazy thoughts today. Merely a day of wondering; allowing my mind to create its next thought and to take each one on a journey of discovery. What if? and What would that look like?
Where has this taken me to today? To God. Let me remember I am one with God. And in this I will settle in Peace. I am safe. Today we will remember once again our Identity in God. This is our place of peace; connected. Here our home is safe, protection guaranteed in all that we do. Power and strength is available to us in all our undertakings.
With this, we can fail in nothing. Everything we touch takes on a shining light that blesses and it heals. As one with God and with the universe we go our way rejoicing, with the thought that God Himself goes everywhere with us.
And so each morning, go to this place of Peace, to wonder, to remember.
A Course in Miracles~ Lesson 80~ Let me remember I am one with God. Everything I touch takes on a shining light that blesses and it heals.
Let me remember I am one with God. Today we will again give thanks for our Identity in God. Our home is safe, protection guaranteed in all we do, power and strength available to us in all our undertakings. We can fail in nothing. Everything we touch takes on a shining light that blesses and that heals. As one with God and with the universe we go our way rejoicing, with the thought that God Himself goes everywhere with us. Sit with this today.
How holy are our minds. Everything we see reflects the holiness within the mind at one with God and with itself. How easily do errors disappear, and death give place to everlasting life. Our shining footprints point the way to truth, for God is our Companion as we walk the world a little while. And those who come to follow us will recognize the way because the light we carry stays behind, yet still remains with us as we walk on. This, is peace.
What we receive is our eternal gift to those who follow after, and to those who went before or stayed with us a while. And God, Who loves us with the equal love in which we were created, smiles on us and offers us the happiness we gave. This is peace.
Today we will not doubt His Love for us, nor question His protection and His care. No meaningless anxieties can come between our faith and our awareness of His Presence. We are one with Him today in recognition and remembrance. We feel Him in our hearts. Our minds contain His Thoughts; our eyes behold His loveliness in all we look upon. Today we see only the loving and the lovable. This is peace.
We see it in appearances of pain, and pain gives way to peace. We see it in the frantic, in the sad and the distressed, the lonely and afraid, who are restored to the tranquility and peace of mind in which they were created. And we see it in the dying and the dead as well, restoring them to life. All this we see because we saw it first within ourselves. There is only life.
No miracle can ever be denied to those who know that they are one with God. No thought of theirs but has the power to heal all forms of suffering in anyone, in times gone by and times as yet to come, as easily as in the ones who walk beside them now. Thoughts are timeless. This is peace.
We join in this awareness as we say that we are one with God. For in these words we say as well that we are saved and healed; that we can save and heal accordingly. We have accepted, and we now would give. For we would keep the gifts our Father gave. Today we would experience ourselves at one with Him, so that the world may share our recognition of reality. In our experience the world is freed. As we denied our separation from our Father, it is healed along with us.
Peace be to you today. Secure your peace by practicing awareness you are one with your Creator, as He is with you. Sometime today, whenever it seems best, devote a half an hour to the thought that you are one with God.
There are no rules nor special words to guide your meditation. Trust God's Voice to speak as He sees fit today, certain He will not fail. Abide with Him, He will do the rest.
You may not be ready to accept the gain today, yet sometime, somewhere, it will come to you. Perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will see your own transfiguration in the glass, a reflection of your love. When you are ready you will find it there, within your mind and waiting to be found. Perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will look into this glass, and understand the sinless light you see belongs to you; the loveliness you look on is your own.
Todays lesson is your gift to God, seeking peace within yourself. His return will be a sense of love you cannot understand, a joy too deep for you to comprehend, a sight too holy for the body's eyes to see. And yet you can be sure someday, perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will understand and comprehend and see.
Each hour, add further to the golden frame that holds the mirror offered to you today, by repeating to yourself:
Let me remember I am one with God, at one with all my brothers and my Self, in everlasting holiness and peace.
Find your place of peace and go there often, in love and in light, peace within, Lori-Lynn
