What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ Here is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can only just look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It’s the belief that something (anything) can be attacked or weakened or destroyed. This kind of belief is but a vain try to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit course in miracles, Which will be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game that the sleepy child plays for a minute of amusement.
There’s an occasion when disillusionment comes to your brain which deals in fantasies. And beyond this time an entire new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed because the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the world 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 hide the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head 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 really a holy encounter. As you see him you will dsicover yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you think of him you will think of yourself. Never forget 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 lost flock back again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to any or all!
