What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite has no opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the concept of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) may be attacked or weakened or destroyed. This kind of belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, Which can be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what exactly is fantasy but an imaginary game that the sleepy child plays for an instant of amusement.
There’s a period when disillusionment involves your head which deals in fantasies. And beyond this point an entire new world of glimmering light emerges within course in miracles bookstore. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed because 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 worthiness of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to hide the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a mind fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a global 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 will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you think of him you will think of yourself. Remember this, for in him you will see 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 am always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening just how and leading a missing flock back again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all or any!
