What could harm the power and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) could be attacked or weakened or destroyed A COURSE IN MIRACLES AUTHORS. This type of belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, That is far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for a moment of amusement.
There is an occasion when disillusionment concerns the mind which deals in fantasies. And beyond this time a whole new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed since the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the planet of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to cover the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a mind fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a world made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “When you meet anyone, remember it is just a holy encounter. As you see him you might find yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you think of him you’ll think of yourself. Always remember this, for in him you will discover yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Don’t leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I’m always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening the way in which and leading a missing flock back once again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all or any!
