My Face about to Blow! ACIM Review V: Lesson #180
God is but Love, and therefore so am I./By grace I live. By grace I am released. There is no cruelty in God and none in me.
Lesson 180 is a tough one for me right now. Given recent political decisions, I have a hard time thinking kind thoughts. I him and I haw. I get angry and I react.
But Lesson 180 brings me back to the truth of who I am. It reminds me that no matter what is going on in the external, the truth of who I am (and, by extension, who my brothers & sisters are) is never cruel.
You see, if I buy into separation. If I believe in hate or cruel intentions. Then I no longer believe in Unity. Then I forget we are one in Source.
And despite the Maya/illusion that the world tries to trick me into believing, my grace reminds me there is more to the story. We are infinite expressions of the one true Source. There is really only Love, trying to fight its way to the surface. Drowning in a sea of opinion and vitriol that was never part of Source/God to begin with. This Maya is human-made. And, as such, is subjective at best. Cruel at worst. And never who we (or anyone else) truly is.
Lesson 180 invites me to let it go. To release. And in so doing to create space for all of the Love that truly is. Because when I am angry. When I am argumentative. When I am cruel. There is room for nothing else. Only the illusion.
Regardless of your perspective, I invite you to let go today. To release the idea that your ideals are greater and more important than the Source of who you truly are. And to make room for the Love that can pervade our very beings when we allow it to do so. By our grace. By our release. In this we can face the future free, wise and unafraid. Fearless in the grace and Love of Source itself.
A special Prayer for all Today:
In your lives I speak over you the Word of Peace. Be still and know that Source is at work for your highest Divine Good. May that which is for your highest good and for the highest good of all be lovingly released in the highest Divine timing. Word we are Word.
