“But remember the first principle in this course; there is no order of difficulty in miracles. In reality you are perfectly unaffected by all expressions of lack of love. These can be from yourself and others, from yourself to others, or from others to you. (T18)”
Affirmation: “unaffected by lacks of love”
This passage is most illuminating. We think that we are affected when others don’t love us as we wish, or when we recognize that we too don’t love as we ought.
Jesus admonishes us to recognize that reality is actually unaffected by lacks of love. Our real selves have never been damaged in any way.
The first principle in the Course, no order of difficulty in miracles, is a blessing that we do not understand. How can this be? But Jesus asserts that it is true, and we would be wise to take him at his word and ask for his blessing and his miracles.
Please forgive me, and help me to forgive myself and others, for the lacks of love that we show. May we replace lack with the grace to live peacefully in all situations and events.
Jesus tells us that there is no order of difficulty in miracles. So this need will be answered just as soon as we ask. Thank you.
