Lesson 188 – Peace shines out of me?

The peace of God is shining in me now.’

Why wait for Heaven. Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now. Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all. Light is not of the world, yet you who bear the light in you are alien here as well. The light came with you from your native home, and stayed with you because it is your own. It is the only thing you bring with you from Him Who is your Source. It shines in you because it lights your home, and leads you back to where it came from and you are at home.

The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. The peace of God can never be contained. Who recognises it within himself must give it. And the means for giving it are in his understanding. He forgives because he recognises the truth in him. The peace of God is shining in you now, and in all living things.

For it is we who make the world as we would have it.

The peace of God is shining in me now.
Let all things shine upon me in that peace.
And let me bless them with the light in me.

There seem to be a relentless drive to implant the idea that we are the creators of our world. I looked around today and wondered how on Earth I created some of the crap that I’m experiencing at the moment; the doubts, the fears, the uncertainties. How did all this creep back in to my life? I’m trying hard to focus only on what I want and therefore create more of that, but my mind keeps wandering back to the things I mistakenly created.

Yet, let me not be too maudlin. Let me take credit for some fantastic things that are also happening. I think the issue for me is how to stay focused enough on the positives so as not to create any of the negative stuff. Is that possible? I guess it will be when I can truly accept that I am not a mind and body. When I can accept that I am pure Consciousness and therefore pure light, then anything and everything is possible.

We had Jan Watts,Birmingham’s 2011-2012 poet laureate visit us at our Writer’s Without Borders meeting to talk to us about writing humorous poems and to share some of her own with us. I made a pledge today to try and write more humorous stuff, maybe that will bring a little more laughter into my life.
