Now your final instruction is here

Now your final instruction is here. You have found peace–live in peace.  You have been given the Peace of God–go in Peace. Spread Peace throughout the land.

Go out in peace and love and service to all. For in this going out you come home and bring with you all the brothers and sisters you have brought to peace.

Go in peace to love and serve with all your heart. Thus are we one heart, one mind, one unity. Thus are we one in relationship of love and peace that is our eternal home.

Welcome home my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome home.

~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.15

Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?

The extremes that we are talking of leaving behind are extreme of reaction to a chosen lesson. What you are being asked to leave behind is the need for such lessons. 

If you have learned the curriculum, what further lessons are needed? What quite knowing cannot come to you in peace?

Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?

~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.12

Are you being asked to give up extremes? Yes.

Are you being asked to give up extremes? Yes. You are being asked to give up all that would take peace from you. 

But as you have been told before, you will be giving up nothing. 

It will seem if it is so for a while perhaps.  You will continue to be attracted to those living at the extremes and there is no reason not to take joy in observing another’s happiness or to feel compassion at another’s suffering.  But you need not partake and you cannot partake if you are going to carry the Peace of God with you.

~ Jesus, A Course of Love T1.10.7

God is looking out for us

God is looking out for us, gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs.
God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us.
God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy and all my pain departs.

~ Guru Arjan, Evening Prayer

Original Gurumuhki:

Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun
Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun
Tis Saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
