What am I except the Christ in me?

My oneness with the Christ establishes me as Your Child, beyond the reach of time, and wholly free of every law but Yours. I have no self except the Christ in me. I have no purpose but His Own. And He is like His Creator. Thus must I be one with You as well as Them. For who is Christ except Your Child as You created Them? And what am I except the Christ in me?

You have not left me comfortless

Love, reflected in forgiveness here, reminds me You have given me a way to find Your peace again. I am redeemed when I elect to follow in this way.

You have not left me comfortless. I have within me both the mem­ory of You, and One Who leads me to it. Lord, I would hear Your Voice and find Your peace today.

The way is not hard, but it is very different

The way is not hard, but it is very different. Yours is the way of pain, of which God knows nothing. That way is hard indeed, and very lonely. Fear and grief are your guests, and they go with you and abide with you on the way. But the dark journey is not the way of God’s Son.

Walk in light and do not see the dark companions, for they are not fit companions for the Son of God, who was created of light and in light. The Great Light al ways surrounds you and shines out from you. How can you see the dark companions in a light such as this? If you see them, it is only because you are denying the light. But deny them instead, for the light is here and the way is clear.

Unless you hurt yourself you could never suffer in any way, for that is not God’s Will

When you are weary, remember you have hurt yourself. Your Comforter will rest you, but you cannot. You do not know how, for if you did you could never have grown weary. Unless you hurt yourself you could never suffer in any way, for that is not God’s Will for His Son. Pain is not of Him, for He knows no attack and His peace sur rounds you silently. God is very quiet, for there is no conflict in Him. Conflict is the root of all evil, for being blind it does not see whom it attacks. Yet it always attacks the Son of God, and the Son of God is you.

You cannot enter God’s Presence with the dark companions beside you, but you also cannot enter alone

You cannot enter God’s Presence with the dark companions beside you, but you also cannot enter alone.

All your brothers must enter with you, for until you have accepted them you cannot enter.

For you cannot understand wholeness unless you are whole, and no part of the Son can be excluded if he would know the Wholeness of his Father.
