Lesson 189 – Feel the love

‘I feel the love of God within me now.’

There is a light in you the world can not perceive. And with its eyes you will not see this light, for you are blinded by the world. Yet you have eyes to see it. This light is a reflection of the thought we practice now. To feel the love of God within you is to see the world anew, shining in innocence, alive with hope, and blessed with perfect charity and love.

Who could feel fear in such a world as this? It welcomes you, rejoices that you came, and sings your praises as it keeps you safe from every form of danger and of pain. It offers you a warm and gentle home in which to stay a while. It blesses you throughout the day, and watches through the night as silent guardian of your holy sleep.

This is the world the Love of God reveals. It is so different from the world you see through darkened eyes of malice and of fear, that one belies the other. What would you see? The choice is given you. But learn, and do not let your mind forget this law of seeing: you look upon that which you see within.

It’s Sunday, and it’s another April-like day of sunshine and showers – in July. After the 3 hours outside Maplin’s last week I decided to have an easy Sunday of rest, meditation, and laughter. I reminded myself that the hectic world I’ve been experiencing is coming from an unsettled inner world. It was good to slow the pace right down. So I watched six episodes of the BBC comedy series EPISODES.

I also needed to remind myself that I cannot take responsibility for anyone else’s feelings or progress in life. I recognise when I’m doing this as it manifests as pain, and pain = guilt according to Louise Hay. I’ve found it challenging not to feel responsible for someone who has been making a concerted effort to hold me responsible for the hurt he feels in his life.

Today I focused on the future and resisted the temptation to over analyze the past. I was determined to remember the law of seeing – I look upon that which I see within. The future is very exciting, full of love and light.
