Lesson 301 And God Himself Shall Wipe Away All Tears.

II.  SECTION 9.  What is the Second Coming?

Lesson 301.  And God Himself Shall Wipe Away All Tears.

  1. Father, unless I judge I cannot weep.  Nor can I suffer pain, or feel I am abandoned or unneeded in the world.  This is my home because I judge it not and therefore is it only what You will.  Let me today behold it uncondemned, through happy eyes forgiveness has released from all distortion.  Let me see Your world instead of mine.  And all the tears I shed will be forgotten, for their source is gone.  Father, I will not judge Your world today.
  2. God’s world is happy.  Those who look on it can only add their joy to it and bless it as a cause of further joy in them.  We wept because we did not understand.  But we have learned the world we saw was false, and we will look upon God’s world today.[1]

The less enmeshed we become in this world, the less we feel the pain of neglect, misunderstanding, and downright spite!  Refraining from judgment of ourselves and others, we can live in a state of happy forgiveness which releases the world from condemnation.  When we pray God’s Kingdom come, we are asking for God’s everlasting and joyful world instead of this one.  All the ways in which we failed and the world failed us will hurt us no more as we experience the Second Coming. 

When we begin to see this world as false, there is only the Real World, God’s Kingdom, to embrace.  No longer content with ego world, the Real World comes into view – once only a hope, now it becomes a reality.  Christ born in us and living through us, makes us one. 

Imagine!  No more hidden agendas.  No more projecting our own darkness onto others.  No more hurt feelings, spite, and jealousy.  No more war, violence, disease, and death.  We have nothing to gripe or gossip about!  We bond through our shared joy and add to our joy by blessing instead of cursing, by loving instead of hating, by giving to receive and receiving to give.  Let’s welcome the Second Coming and open our hearts for His return.

Only misinterpreting the Second Coming, only misunderstanding God’s Kingdom would have us shrink and cry out in terror, afraid we have not done enough, afraid we will not make it through, afraid we will be left behind.  Let us forgive this world, and God Himself shall wipe all tears from our eyes!

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
