“The Son of God is free to save himself, given the Word of God to be his Guide, forever in his mind and at his side to lead him surely to his Father’s house by his own will, forever free as God’s. He is not led by force, but only love. He is not judged, but only sanctified.”
I find these words immensely reassuring. So many times as a child and even as an adult, I heard of God as an arbitrary, even tyrannical being, and I didn’t believe in such a god. In high school, even before coming to the Course, which hadn’t been scribed in the sixties, I adopted a personal motto: Wherever there is love, there is God.
“Today we try to understand the truth that giver and receiver are the same. You will need help to make this meaningful, because it is so alien to the thoughts to which you are accustomed. But the Help you need is there. Give Him your faith today, and ask Him that He share your practicing in truth today. And if you only catch a tiny glimpse of the release that lies in the idea we practice for today, this is a day of glory for the world.”
More reassurance for the journey; I’m not walking alone. Not only do I have the help of my brothers and sisters, but also of my inner Teacher as well. Thank you, Holy Spirit.
