Lesson 274 Today Belongs To Love, Let Me Not Fear

PART II.  SECTION 6: WHAT IS THE CHRIST?

Lesson 274 Today belongs to Love.  Let Me Not Fear.

  1. Father, today I would let all things be as You created them, and give Your Son the honor for his sinlessness, the love of brother to his brother and his FriendThrough this I am redeemed.  Through this as well the truth will enter where illusions were, light will replace all darkness, and Your Son will know he is as You created him.
  2. A special blessing comes to us today, from Him Who is our Father.  Give this day to Him, and there will be no fear today because the day is given unto Love.[1]

Notes and Personal Application In today’s prayer, Jesus directs us to commit all things to God.  We just let everything stand the way it is.  We do not ask for healing, we do not ask for forgiveness, we do not ask for a job so we can pay our bills, and we do not ask for the salvation of our loved ones.  We let things be the way they are and see past them to our oneness in Christ, to our sinlessness in Christ, to the love we have for one another in Christ, and the love that God has for us His Son.  When we look upon our world as it is right now with the eyes of Christ, we are redeemed, and the world, indeed all of creation along with us. 

We do not arrive at truth by coming to God in sackcloth and ashes, fasting and smiting ourselves in sorrow.  We do not arrive at truth by reporting the sins of our brothers, agonizing to Him about the sorry state of the world, pleading and groveling before Him to save the world.  When we lay down the eyes of flesh and see with the vision of Christ, light will replace darkness.  Our minds will be flooded with the sure knowledge that we are as He created us. 

God wants us to exercise the power of our Christ mind so that we may come to understand that He made us to be like Him.  He did not make us to be underlings!  He did not make us to be eternal babies and toddlers who must always come to Him for help, for sustenance, to get our diapers changed.  God made us like Him because He loves us.  He shares everything He is with us, His Son, because He loves us.  We were created to inhabit the Universe with Him.    

Today free your mind from the ego’s god who would design creatures who were perpetually dependent upon it, perpetually manipulated by its need for attention and admiration, its changeable moods, tempers, and demands. When we free ourselves from this concept of our Father we come to Him in love and respect.  We understand our worth to Him for with Christ, we are His beloved Son, and still as He created us. 

Today look at the world as it is with the faith, the courage, the power and glory to see beyond it.  Instead of seeing it through the eyes of ego which were designed and put into our flesh faces to see discord, destruction, and deviltry, see the world through the spiritual eyes of Christ – returned to our Father in peace and joy and love, where each and every aspect of Creation is holy, innocent, pure, where each one of us live – loving and laughing forever, together as one.

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.
