“The choice to change your belief is before you. Are you ready to make it? As you once chose separation you can now choose unity. Not knowing that unity was a choice prevented you from making this choice before now. Now I tell you clearly, the choice is yours. Choose once again. (A Course of Love, 29.18)”
Affirmation: “I would choose unity today.”
1 – The Way to Christ-Consciousness
We need to change our beliefs, to believe no longer in the separation that never was, and to embrace the unity that always has been–which we are now ready to accept. There is no other way to Christ-consciousness. We must be aware that we are “as” relationship to all, “as” as well as “in.” And it is in the “as” that we come to see that we cannot get along without communion with God, with our deepest Christ Self, and with other people, our brothers and sisters.
2 – Unity Our Greatest Need
When we recognize that unity with the All is our greatest need, we will be willing to cease this desire for meaningless independence, the isolation that so many of us feel deep in our minds and, perhaps, even, we think, in our hearts. Our hearts do not really feel thus, though, for they do not have the intellectual doubts about God that stop or, at least, impede, so many of us. Let us ask for the intellectual understanding that will quell our restless minds, but let us not get hung up about it. We know in our hearts that God is real, and that He is the only real thing in a real world. Everything else is illusion, for we ourselves, and everything, is a part of God. Our brothers and sisters are, likewise, one with God and one with ourselves.
3 – God’s Blessing
It is time to choose again, to choose the blessing that God would bestow upon us. Fear can fade away when we say the affirmations that come us to from A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love, as well as the Bible. These affirmations proclaim a truth that is above doubt, a truth that all is really well with us–regardless of outside circumstances. Even pain is alleviated and kept from escalating into suffering when we live close to the deepest within ourselves, the deepest which is God.
4 – Join in Unity
May we join forces with all whom we see today, to join in unity with our brothers and sisters, and to pray for the Christ-consciousness which will mean that we will live in unity without any time constraints, permanently.
We need to get very clear about what we need–and that is a unity with all, You and All that exists. May I reach the clarity that will tell me this in my deepest heart of hearts. May I depend on You for the answers to my needs, knowing that needs are always answered. My wants may not be realized, and that is as it should be. I may want what would hurt me.
Thank You for helping me to realize that I must keep my mind clear to avoid attracting the wrong things. I have some say in this, though You will guide me–always–when I let myself be open to guidance. May I follow Your will and Your way today, all through the day.
