I will not be afraid of love today

I will not be afraid of love today.

If I could realize this but today, salvation would be reached for all the world.

This decision not to be insane, and to accept myself as God, My Source, created me. This the determination to not be asleep in dreams of death, while truth remains forever living in the joy of love.

Today I wake with joy

My holiness shines bright and clear today.

Today I wake with joy, expecting but the happy things of God to come to me. I ask but they come, and realize my invitation will be answered by the thoughts to which it has been sent by me.

Creation’s Gentleness is all I see

I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I had laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me. How fierce they seemed! And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of my mind alone.

Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines. There is no fear in it. Let no appearance of my sins obscure the light of Heaven shining in the world.

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering

Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceivable? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light it reflects. And so the journey which the Child of God began has ended in the light from which it came.

Father, we would return our minds to You. We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death. Now would we rest again in You, as You created us.

I am in danger nowhere in the world

We are safe wherever we may be, for You are there with us. We need but call upon Your Name, and we will recollect our safety and Your Love, for they are one. How can we fear or doubt or fail to know that we cannot suffer, be endangered, or experience unhappiness, when we belong to You, beloved and loving, in the safety of Your embrace.

~ Jesus, A Course of Miracles, Lesson 244
