The universe is open to you. God is offering His Mind to you. He is sharing with you Everything that He Is. His glittering, shimmering frequency is all around you. It is in you – it IS you – it is what You Are with Him and in Him.
“God is with me. He is my Source of life, the life within, the air I breathe, the food by which I am sustained, the water which renews and cleanses me. He is my home, wherein I live and move; the Spirit Which directs my actions, offers me Its Thoughts, and guarantees my safety from all pain. He covers me with kindness and with care, and holds in love the Son He shines upon, who also shines on Him.” (Prayer lesson 222 ‘God is with me, I live and move in Him’)
I experience my Father’s presence as being in perfect communion with all the universe. There is an infinitely expansive heaven of stars twinkling above and around me and this is my mind, this is my Self. My identity, mental emotional and physical, is completely at one with this living, breathing, conscious heavenly Mind.
“My Self, Which rules the universe, is but Your Will in perfect union with my own, which can but offer glad assent to Yours, that it may be extended to Itself.” (Prayer lesson 253 ‘My Self is ruler of the universe’)
This all encompassing communication with Truth, teaches and reaches every corner of the universe. There is nothing that is outside of this experience. Therefore I do rule the universe. Not with the iron fist of control born from the pain of self-containment, but with a gentle all pervasive extension of absolute certainty; certainty of What I Am.
“You are entitled to miracles because of what you are. You will receive miracles because of what God is. And you will offer miracles because you are one with God. Again, how simple is salvation! It is merely a statement of your true Identity. It is this that we will celebrate today.” (Lesson 77 ‘I am entitled to miracles’)
This is A Course in Miracles. The miracle is the acceptance of the Love that is the Source of all miracles as yourSelf, as your Identity.
“Today we will claim the miracles which are your right, since they belong to you. You have been promised full release from the world you made. You have been assured that the Kingdom of God is within you, and can never be lost. We ask no more than what belongs to us in truth. Today, however, we will also make sure that we will not content ourselves with less.” (Lesson 77)
You are the Kingdom of Heaven. You are the Kingdom of God. It is not just within you, it IS you. It cannot be lost because you cannot be lost in the Mind of God. Your Creator knows you perfectly, as He created you.
Be not content with the littleness that is your pathetic earthly self and existence. Be aware of just how little that is, of just how little you are if you choose that as yourself. Be open to the experience that a human being is nothing and knows nothing, and you are opening yourself to an experience of what the Self is that is beyond that littleness, that basks and glides in the magnitude and glory of the Light of Truth.
Heaven is your inheritance and is your one and only possibility of joy. Nothing will satisfy you for long, nothing will last here, except the complete acceptance of your own Identity in God. Your acceptance of yourself as heavenly rather than earthly, as eternal rather than in time, as extending – continuously and simultaneously giving and receiving through this subtle communication with All Things, this experience of Being God, is the only thing you need strive for or focus on or value. If you do decide ‘first (for) the Kingdom of the Lord’ then ‘all things will be added unto you’. (Matthew 6:33) They won’t be given to you in your separate state to use for your own purposes, but will be added to You as the Kingdom of Heaven, which you know as what You Are. All that you have ever wanted or desired or dreamed of being your reality and making you happy will be presented to the Kingdom of Heaven for all who you identify with to share with you. Nothing will be given you alone, but everything will be given you for you to share will all the Sonship Who you know as yourSelf.
“Decide with me, who has decided to abide with you. I will as my Father wills, knowing His Will is constant and at peace forever with itself. You will be content with nothing but His Will. Accept no less, remembering that everything I learned is yours. What my Father loves I love as He does, and I can no more accept it as what it is not, than He can. And no more can you When you have learned to accept what you are, you will make no more gifts to offer to yourself, for you will know you are complete, in need of nothing and unable to accept anything for yourself. But you will gladly give, having received. The host of God needs not seek to find anything.” (Text 15:3:10)
“We thank you Father for the light that shines forever in us. And we honour it, because You share it with us. We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.” (Prayer lesson 239 ‘The Glory of my Father is my own’)
Amen to this beautiful and flawless awakening. Amen to my Father’s promise of full release from the world I made, and my clarity and certainty that that has occurred in me.
