I loose the world from all I thought it was.
“Belief is powerful indeed”
It is my belief that holds the world as I see it. I think it real. What I see are the effects of my thoughts. I could stop there and tremble in fear or I could see as truth sees. I prefer to see as truth sees for in its sight there is clarity. I could stay marred and broken by the past and the ego would gladly remind me I have good cause to be defensive. Instead I have chosen love as my guide and an exceptional guide it is.
The caves of pain and suffering collapse in love’s presence. Why should I continue to dwell there when the power I possess within leads me elsewhere into Heaven. In all my years with this spiritual study of ACIM, hasn’t the words of Jesus enlightened my mind? Has not the dedication to practical application infused my life with joy.
“The present now remains the only time. Here in the present is the world set free. For as you let the past be lifted and release the future from your ancient fears, you find escape and give it to the world.”
Healing is a gift. A precious, sacred gift I bestow upon myself each time I take these lessons to heart, day after day, year after year. It becomes more than mere words but a way of life. A life I am happy to live.
