“Because you have now made a new choice, a collective choice as one body, one consciousness, to end the time of the intermediary and to begin to learn directly, you are given the same opportunity now that was formerly reserved for you only after your death. (The Treatises of A Course of Love: ‘A Treatise on the New,’ 5.12)”
Affirmation: “learn directly today”
Learning directly is looking within for our answers. God is within (as well as perceived–and known–as without). He will lead us surely. We do not have to doubt. If we have experienced salvation, we will know what to say and do. We do not have to hesitate.
Of course, we will not do “crazy” things, though some of what we are bade to do may seem embarrassing to us. Jesus says in A Course in Miracles that this conclusion of ours comes from a shabby self-perception, that the words that come to us are truer by far than something we would falsely imagine might be better. We are bade to offer these words that come to us without doubt. Just a few times of doing so will assure us of the validity of Jesus’s advice.
May I learn directly from God today. This is the favored way in the time of Christ (as in A Course of Love) rather than in the time of the Holy Spirit (as in A Course in Miracles). For some time I may vacillate between the two ways of knowing (as opposed to perceiving), and I ask your patience with me as I experience a new way of seeing.
Be with me today. May fear leave me forever. May the love that is Yours come to encompass my brothers and sisters, and myself, so completely that I am lost in that love.
