There is no middle ground in any aspect of salvation

There is no middle ground in any aspect of salvation. You accept it wholly or accept it not.

Either there is a gap between you and your brothers and sisters, or you are as one.

There is no in between, no other choice, and no allegiance to be split between the two. A split allegiance is but faithlessness to both, and merely sets you spinning round, to grasp uncertainty at any straw that seems to hold some promise of relief.

The past is over. It can touch me not.

The past is over. It can touch me not.

Let me not look upon a past that is not there. For you have offered me Your Own replacement, in a present world the past has left untouched and free of sin. Here is the end of guilt. And here am I made ready for Your Final step. Shall I demand that You wait longer for Your Child to find the loveliness You planned to be the end of all dreams and pain?

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.

~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles L.282

Grace over control 

Another replacement is that of control with Grace. This occurs as you give up the control you have but thought you exerted over your life and its circumstances, and live in a state of grace, meeting grace with grace by accepting what is given for your regeneration.

Sustaining this harmony will keep your body in perfect health

The mind, once released from the ego’s thought system, has but to relearn the thought system of the truth. Your mind, heart and body have joined in alignment to bring this learning about. They now exist in harmony.  

Your mind and heart in union have brought harmony to your body.  Sustaining this harmony will keep your body in perfect health, even while the manner of this perfection of your health will remain one of many options. 

Jesus, A Course of Love T4.7.6

When you think in terms of evangelizing or convincing, you think in terms of future outcomes rather than in terms of what is

Those whom you would seek to evangelize or convince are as holy as your Self. This holiness need only to be observed. When you think in terms of evangelizing or convincing, you think in terms of future outcomes rather than in terms of what already is. This type of thinking will not serve the new or allow you full awareness of the new.

Jesus, A Course of Love T4.2.19

Your task is to create the new world and make it observable, not for you to recruit others to it

You are a pioneers to this new world. Its mere existence will attract others and each will find the price of admission is their willingness to leave the old behind. This is a price they must freely give and it cannot be extorted from them, not from special ones of your choosing, and not from anyone.  Thus you are released from a burden never meant to rest upon you even if it is one you might have freely chosen. Your task is to create the new world and make it observable, not for you to recruit others to it.

Jesus, A Course of Love T3.20.18
