ACIM Rewind:Tracking Joy-Lesson #100
My part is essential to God’s plan for salvation. [W-p18.104.22.168]
Yesterday I bought a massive cat toy. Yeah!
It has a track, a ball, even some little pieces that fit in over the track to give it a ‘hide & seek’ kindov vibe.
It is awesome.
Although most of the parts are interchangeable, I notice if I try to put certain pieces in a spot-they just don’t fit. They are on the wrong track to make the balls path fluid. They simply don’t work.
So I patiently (there maaaaay have been cursing involved) took each piece and discerned where they fit. Then result was a lovely track (pictured) where a ball rolls around from place to place seamlessly.
Lesson 100 reminds me we are each a part of the big track of existence we call life. EACH of us has an essential part to play that makes the whole track run smoothly. Without our individual piece, the track of the world doesn’t run smooth. There is no way for the true Source of life-aka happiness-to completely express in the world.
And just as that little ball can’t make it through without a single piece of the cat puzzle, the world cannot ascend to it’s highest joy without each of you. Doing your part to light up the world. Source is continually trying to remind us of this happiness so that we can share it with our fellow earth travelers. And they remember their function by seeing the light of Universe reflected on your joyous face.
This is why you came here. To be a messenger of joy. To find the joy within. To give it to one-another.
And the brighter we shine? The more earth-shatteringly radiant is all of the lights in heaven. You are healing all sorrow & despair with this light. Accept this miraculous gift of purpose in your life today. And see the joy and peace that passes all understanding in your fellow life-trackers. It is reflected in the love and happiness only you can give.
