Lesson 160 – A stranger in the house

‘I am at home. Fear is a stranger here.’

Fear is a stranger to the ways of love. Identify with fear, and you will be a stranger to yourself.

There was a lot more than this but essentially it says the same thing over and over. When you fear you move out of your own house and give it up to a stranger. The only way to oust the stranger is with love because, as the course tells us over and over, love and fear cannot exist in the same place.

I’ve been pretty involved with the David Icke book and still marvelling at the similarities between it and ACIM. In a section on time he writes:

‘Past’ and ‘future’ are states of mind and emotion, not states of ‘fact’. People have a very different relationship with reality when they go into any form of deep meditation and move beyond the realm of perceived time.

In other words, there is no past, no future, only NOW, and NOW is the only time in which we can create. Without any fear of the future we are awesome.
