“If God were to speak to you Himself and tell you of what means your service would be to Him, He would but tell you this: My child, return to me. God has no Will apart from yours. Your return to unity is all God seeks for you, for Himself, and for all His children. The return to unity was my [Jesus’s] accomplishment, and all that is meant by what I have often repeated here: Only you can be accomplished. Your service is but dedication to this goal. (A Course of Love, 29.6)”
Affirmation: “I would return to God today.”
1 – Beautiful Passage
This passage for today is indeed beautiful. If all God asks of us is to return to Him, then we would do well to heed Him. Our will and God’s are actually identical, and therefore we do not have to fret that we will be led down paths that we don’t want to take. We need to realize that we are part of the while, and in returning to the One (God) we return to unity. We are living in relationship to all at the same time that we are unified with all. Unity and relationship are touchstones for A Course of Love.
2 – The Accomplished
We will serve, ourselves and others, and in this service we will become like Jesus, in that we will be “the accomplished.” We need not fear that this is arrogance of the ego, for it is not. It is the way that things actually are when we are living the Self/Christ.
3 – Elevated Self of Form
The Self/Christ is the elevated Self of form, which means that we are living a physical existence in this world, but we are elevated to the union with God that we all so need. Union with God, the unitive state, is what mystics of all generations have found, and in the finding they have known peace indeed.
4 – Of Service
Let us ask today to be the accomplished, and with this accomplishment, we will want to be of service to ourselves and others. We can ask no great blessing than this, to be One with God and our brothers and sisters, one with the All.
May I be patient as I am of service to others today. May I make sure that I am embracing You at every turn. This is what You want. This is what I want. May I not let impatience for more hold me back even further.
My I embody the elevated Self of form as soon as You deem possible. May I enjoy the days that lie between now and then, and may I remain patient always. Only You know best.
