Conflicting wishes cannot be my will. 

 

 

Lesson 307

 

Conflicting wishes cannot be my will.

 

 

In an earlier lesson it says, “God is but Love and therefore so am I.” I am learning that I am the same Love that God is and that there are no differences of any kind. There is only seamless, undifferentiated, universal Love. This one universal Love has one Will. Therefore conflicting wishes cannot be my will.

 

A false will, with a wish for individuality, only brings illusions of pain and lack. This false Will can be undone by taking every thought of differences, individuality, and separate bodies, to the Holy Spirit to be undone. Love is. God is. There is nothing else. I remain as God created me. I will open my mind to remember this today.

 

It is impossible to know peace while believing separation is real. I must let the Holy Spirit’s lesson of forgiveness if I am to know the peace of God. Every lesson that I learn from the Holy Spirit to forgive a circumstance, event or the behavior of another, I come closer to recognizing that there are in truth no differences. I share the Light and Love of God equally with all that lives. God is Life. Love is Life. Existence in this world of illusions is not Life. To experience the Life God has given me I must let go of the belief in the reality of form and of separation. 

 

When I forgive and realize that there was in truth no harm, for Love is changeless and Love is what I am, I am opening up to the recognition that my will and God’s are the same. I am moving toward acceptance that God’s Will for me is happiness. God is one and there is no conflict in Him. To know my Self, I must accept my oneness with God. When the Course first came to me, it wasn’t the oneness with my brothers and sisters I resisted, it was the thought that I could have a will that is one with Gods Will. Once, I saw the thought for the stumbling block it was; a simple ego tactic to try to keep me from my peace. When each mistaken thought is handed over to the Holy Spirit, it is only then that I will know freedom from conflict. I will know the peace of God. 

 

Today I will practice taking each thought of conflict, loss, and sacrifice, as well as each thought of fear or guilt to the Holy Spirit to receive His vision. I will learn to recognize in God and in my Self there is no conflict, it is not my will. God’s Will and mine are one.

 

 

Wishing each of you the Deepest Peace,

 

Ryan
