‘Let me remember I am one with God.’
Today we will once again give thanks for our Identity in God. Our home is safe, protection guaranteed in all we do, power and strength available to us in all our undertakings. We can fail in nothing. Everything we touch takes on a shining light that blesses and that heals. At one with God and with the universe we go our way rejoicing, with the thought that God Himself goes everywhere with us.
No miracle can ever be denied to those who know that they are one with God. No thought of theirs but has the power to heal all forms of suffering in anyone, in times gone by and times as yet to come, as easily as in the one who walks beside them now. Their thoughts are timeless, and apart from distance as apart from time.
Peace be with you today. Secure your peace by practicing awareness you are one with your Creator, as He is with you. Sometime today, whenever it seems best, devote a half an hour to the thought that you are one with God. This is our first attempt at an extended period for which we give no rules and no special words to guide your meditation. We will trust God’s voice to speak as He sees fit today, certain He will not fail. Abide in Him this half an hour. He will do the rest.
‘Let me remember I am one with God, at one with all my brothers and my Self, in everlasting holiness and peace.’
Two things leapt out at me from today’s lesson. Both are highlighted in the first two paragraphs above. The first one was, We can fail in nothing. Put another way, when our identity is in God, everything we do is a success. I read it about ten times, and let it sink in before carrying on with the rest of the lesson. What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What would you do if you knew success was guaranteed?
The other was about our power to heal suffering in the past and future as well as in the present. I was stunned because this was a discussion I was having with a friend just the night before, and had also focused on it during my morning meditation, prior to reading the lesson. I watched an amazing film called What the Bleep Do We Know, and an accompanying box set of five DVD called Down the Rabbit Hole a few years ago which clearly shows what all mediators know: that time exists only in the mind. It’s based on quantum physics, but for me the physics is only now catching up with what the mystics have known for eons.
It’s the basis of Family Constellations, where we can return to situations in the past in order to heal them so that they are not carried into the future. It is the basis of clairvoyance where the future is visible to those willing to see it.
Sitting for half an hour seemed like such a long time when I first did the course, now it is a welcomed haven in overcrowded days. Was it the stillness that brought the call that helped clear my writer’s block? I don’t know, but my friend from Barbados called and when I explained that I was having difficulty writing the course because my parenting hasn’t exactly been conventional, she suggested that I write the book I want to write about my parenting and then take what seems right from it for the course. That way I will not have compromised my integrity, and in any case, maybe the book is more important than the course.
I felt freed from the constraints of academia and the words began to flow.
Other great news! I got my first cheque from the publisher today for the first quarter’s sales of Dare to Love. I won’t be giving up my day job just yet but I am extremely happy!
