I gladly make the ‘sacrifice’ of fear.
Here is the only ‘sacrifice’ You ask of Your beloved Son. You ask him to give up all suffering, all sense of loss and sadness, all anxiety and doubt, and freely let Your Love come streaming in to his awareness, healing him of pain, and giving him Your Own eternal joy. Such is the ‘sacrifice’ You ask of me, and one I gladly make; the only ‘cost’ of restoration of Your memory to me, for the salvation of the world.
And as we pay the debt we owe to truth, – a debt that merely is the letting go of self-deceptions and of images we worshipped falsely- truth returns to us in wholeness and in joy. We are deceived no longer. Love has now returned to our awareness. And we are at peace again, for fear has gone and only love remains.
There were two sides to the day. One where I was immersed in my writing and one where I needed to lean heavily on the lesson to give up all sense of sadness, loss, anxiety and doubt. In fact, it was interesting that when I was writing all the other things that threatened a sense of loss anxiety and doubt was pushed completely out of my mind. Only when I stopped writing and had to attend to them did they become real. The trick for me was to face them head on, no procrastination.
So, having said there was no sacrifice in yesterday’s lesson, today’s asks us to sacrifice fear, I like the twist.
I wrote over four thousand words today. Only two more stories to write before the editing process starts.
