We stand together, Christ and I, in peace And certainty of purpose. And in Him Is His Creator, as He is in me.
During the holidays I don’t always feel so much like my creator. I rush around. My living room is a prison of wrapping paper shrapnel and unwrapped presents.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s enough to make a girl pull the covers over her head and snuggle with the cat. Indefinately.
ACIM Lesson 354 reminds me this isn’t the whole story of my life. That perspective is magical. And that I’m making a God out of what is really just a passing season.
Any time we look outside of ourselves for answers. For affirmation. We cheapen the power of God within ourselves. We believe in a perfection outside of ourselves that can only fall short of the Divine perfection within. This is always fallible. Always disappointing. For it is only by accessing the Christ within that we can truly tap into the Christ Consciousness that is connected to our individual greatest, best self. This Christ consciousness within is tapped into our own personal journey for salvation and our sacred tasks. The tasks that are unique to us and therefore cannot be explained, justified, or accepted by anything other than our Divine Soul.
So today I invite you to consider who your God is? Is it commercialism? Tasks to do (a personal favorite)? A busy schedule?
Or is it your Divine purpose? A sense of one-ness? And the peace that connects you to eternal light. Consider taking a moment today to remember who you are. Your true purpose in this busy time. Just a single breath. And reconnect to what is always yours to live in the Divine perspective.
