This can happen only through the relinquishment of judgement
and the practice of forgiveness.
The world you see rests on judgement;
through the act of judging,
you maintain the world in your mind.
30 October 2021
Happiness does not depend on the changing conditions and circumstances of this world;
it is not a result of goals attained
or pleasures or stimulations or honors or recognition that the world bestows.
Happiness is what you are in truth;
it is your nature to be happy, to be happy for no reason.
29 October 2021
as you relinquish your personal attachments to having answers and being right.
Today, when you think you know, and your mouth opens to make your opinions,
pause and ask “Do I want to be right, or happy?”
Humbly Surrender all your old ideas of defense
as you accept that your defenselessness is safety, peace and joy.
Humbly and happily accept that only Love is real!
28 October 2021
This desire, this inspiration to return to your Father,
is the gift of the Holy Spirit,
Who has been holding it for you since time began.
He joyfully offers it to you when you are ready,
and through your acceptance is salvation assured.
27 October 2021
Salvation is the process of spiritual awakening.
Its purpose is accomplished through the healing of the mind.
26 October 2021
Truth is not somewhere else far away,
a something that must be diligently sought.
It is closer to you than your own heartbeat.
There is no distance that separates you from the Truth
at this very moment.
25 October 2021
A self that is separate from the world and everything in it,
seemingly complete in itself,
is in fact the denial of the Self created by God,
and a very effective defense against it.
24 October 2021
All others are but different forms of this one problem.
You have been learning to look past form that you may see content.
Be willing to have the Holy Spirit show you the content behind the form
every time you must make a choice.
Only then can you be sure of choosing rightly.
23 October 2021
all that exists has its Being and Life in Him.
What is unlike God,
what contradicts or opposes Him, does not exist in fact,
for He is the only Source and all that He created shares His qualities.
Anything created by God cannot change itself into something else.
Its being is in God, remains in God, and is unalterable in Truth.
22 October 2021
a constantly strengthening intent to realize Truth,
to return to your Father, that becomes your single purpose.
As investment is withdrawn from the ego, from bodily identification,
the mind is progressively freed of habitual tendencies, of the past,
and allowed to return to its true nature as freedom and presence here and now.
21 October 2021
The mind misidentified as a body, a separate entity in time and space,
is the denial of the Self, of Truth.
As the Self is always and only in the present,
the resistance to being truly present,
a fundamental characteristic of the ego,
is also an effective defense against the Truth.
20 October 2021
Sink into peace and harmony and rejoice that you are under no Laws but God’s.
Resist the temptation to believe that you “know“ what and how this day will unfold for your learning.
Moment to moment you choose Love or fear, Truth or illusion.
Listen with devotion to the healing Truth of Love
and rest in the unconditional Love of God’s Grace.
19 October 2021
that you have cherished in your attempt to be safe from the illusion of danger.
The ego continuously wraps bitterness, righteousness, jealousy and fear
into your beliefs of right and wrong as you unwittingly imprison your wondrous spirit
with made up lies and distortions.
Come rest in the schoolroom of Love and accept that only Eternal Love is real.
18 October 2021
the world you experience will change.
To see It in another, is to recognize your brother as he truly is.
This will change the way you see yourself and the world,
and nothing will be the same.
17 October 2021
leaving all judgement to the Holy Spirit.
To judge is to condemn;
you cannot condemn a brother and not share in that condemnation.
Forgiveness replaces all condemnation with a miracle of Love.
To forgive is to recognize the Truth in your brother,
and overlook all appearances.
16 October 2021
Every human being desires happiness, seeks happiness above all else.
If you would be happy in this world, you must be forgiving.
Forgiveness is an expression of Love,
and without Love is happiness impossible.
15 October 2021
and learn to recognize Its absence.
While you believe in the world’s version of love
and seek to find it in forms based on its denial,
you will drive Love from your mind and make Its return impossible.
14 October 2021
He speaks for God, knowing God’s Will for you,
and He perceives through your mind.
He is aware of what you see and experience, and knows it is not true.
He translates what is true into a form you can recognize in this world,
leading you away from illusions, back to what is true.
13 October 2021
Nothing can ever lessen this Light,
for It is the Light of God shining eternally in His Mind.
It is unchanged even as It continues to extend Itself forever.
12 October 2021
And in that Light is your Oneness made manifest.
In the return to this Light, are you restored to Wholeness,
and separation is healed.
You are Light, just as you are Mind, and Being or Spirit.
11 October 2021
Whenever you choose to follow the egoic thought system,
and base your decisions on the values it represents,
nothingness is what you will get.
Always is this true and it will never change.
10 October 2021
Each holds out the promise of satisfaction,
of fulfillment, of completion, waiting at the end of the road.
The forms of this world may vary but never will their content differ.
Illusion represents nothingness, no matter how attractive it may appear.
9 October 2021
They are not real.
The endless series of journeys undertaken by those hypnotized by the world of appearances,
merely repeat themselves over and over again,
treading the same well-worn path, failing to recognize the road they travel.
8 October 2021
You are not aware of the need to make this choice,
for the one alternative that can be chosen, has been forgotten.
So long accustomed to choosing between illusions,
which is no choice at all,
you do not realize the only choice that can be made.
7 October 2021
What you believe becomes the “reality” of your experience.
What you do not believe vanishes from your world.
Each and every day, every hour of every day,
and each and every moment, you must decide between Truth and illusion.
6 October 2021
Your mind has been given to falsity.
The belief in separation has taken the place of Reality,
and all your experience witnesses to and “proves” separation is true.
5 October 2021
Whenever you so decide,
the memory of what you are will rise to awareness,
and all doubt and confusion will vanish.
4 October 2021
the replacement of guilt with innocence.
Whatever is not Love is fear.
The Holy Spirit helps you face fear and heal it by choosing to let it go,
withdrawing your belief and investment in it,
and inviting Love to take its place.
3 October 2021
but you must not waste time looking for it where it is not.
Happiness, like all of Truth, cannot be found in the things of this world,
for it is not here.
2 October 2021
being independent of appearances and conditions that constantly change.
When you realize the Self, awaken to and as the Self,
you find a happiness that is unshakeable, that will never leave you,
for it is forever a part of you.
1 October 2021
for it knows nothing of happiness.
The ego is based on fear, having arisen as a fearful response.
To identify with the ego is to continue that dependence on fear,
and though you may seek happiness through various things and activities,
it will elude you for it cannot be found without.
