I feel the Love of God within me now.

Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed. Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.

I did just this in meditation this morning. I had been reflecting on an issue with a web design client and how I would proceed to make my needs known, yet honor theirs as well. I was guided again like yesterday’s lessons with many times of meditation, to be clear in my priorities and my boundaries. In this I felt much peace. Spirit whispered to me that I need to put my oxygen mask on first before I can be helpful to anyone, be it family, friends, ACIM students, web design clients, my studio clients, or others. With this a feeling of great love rushed in and filled my heart. I was experiencing the Love of God as I was loving myself.

I release judgment of everyone of whom I felt took time away from me, so to speak. It is I who was taking time away from “me.” Even though I know this and teach this, I can forget as well so I am quite thankful for the lesson and reminder that Love comes first above all. It is the honesty in accepting this, and then making a viable solution and communicating it to others.

Where it leads, I know not. Yet, if Love and Peace are my only goal, I can never fail.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
