“I am calling you to make this choice now. This is not a choice automatic to you in human form or even upon the death of your human form. (The Treatises of A Course of Love: ‘A Treatise on the New,’ 5.11)”
Affirmation: “make this choice now”
Jesus would have us to accept Christ-consciousness now. He says that we are ready. Will we forever doubt?
Often we think that there is something else that we need to learn. We believe that the next book, or the next speaker, or the next documentary, or the next prayer, will lead us more easily than what we know already. This is not so. Jesus would have us rest in the present moment, sure of him and sure of ourselves. Our union with Christ will be the only Guide that we need.
Often self-help literature implores us to improve ourselves, but this is not what Christ-consciousness is all about. Frequently self-help is to improve the dream that we are in. Christ-consciousness is the call to awaken.
When we are called to awaken, we cease turning to the next book, the next system of thought, the next whatever. We rest in surety that we know, because God has granted us knowledge, and we are leaving mere “perception” behind. Let us choose for knowledge today.
Help me to follow the guidance that comes to me inwardly. This guidance will surely and safely lead me to Christ-consciousness. This is the elevated Self of form, about which A Course of Love speaks so eloquently. This means that I do not have to die to experience the knowledge that only You can give. Please grant me knowledge to live and love today, this day in all its fullness.
Thank You for Your guidance. If I do my part, it is most certain that You will do Yours. You have only been waiting until I was ready. I am ready today.
