This Instant is the Only Time There Is.

I have conceived of time in such a way that I defeat my aim. If I elect to reach past time to timelessness, I must change my perception of what time is for. Time’s purpose cannot be to keep the past and future one.

The only interval in which I can be saved from time is now. For in this instant has forgiveness come to set me free. The birth of Christ is now, without a past or future. Christ has come to give the present blessing to the world, restoring it to timelessness and love. And love is ever-present, here and now.

Thanks for this instant, God. It is now I am redeemed. This instant is the time You have appointed for Your Children’s release, and for salvation of the world in them.

Enter into Peace Where Conflict is Impossible

God, Your Will is mine, and only that.  There is no other will for me to have.  Let me not try to make another will, for it is senseless and will cause me pain.  You Will alone can bring me happiness, and only Yours exists.

If I would have what only You can give, I must accept Your Will for me, and enter into peace where conflict is impossible, Your Child is one with You in being and in will, and nothing contradicts the holy truth that I remain as You created me.

Today I can forget the world I made

What but Christ’s vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me?

Today I can forget the world I made.

Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.

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.

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.
