“Thus we end this Course with love given and love received in truth. You are the learner here until you realize that you are Love. You then become the teacher of what you are. Your mind and heart join in wholeheartedness in the embrace. You are home, and there you will forever stay. (A Course of Love, 32.3)”
Affirmation: “I am home.”
1 – Comfort
What a glorious statement of our place in this world! Being “home” is a comforting thought, and it the place toward which we have longed to come for such a long, long time. Eons have been spent in searching for what can only be found within, the God within. And to find God, we must give up the version of our personal self that is the ego.
2 – Definition of the Ego
This assertion does not mean that we will fall apart on the inside. The ego, as defined in A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love, is a false view of self, having no basis in reality. It is not as Freud thought, the integrator of the essence of ourselves. Instead, while a part of our belief about ourselves, it is the home of lies about our real Self.
3 – Elevated Self of Form
When we have truly integrated, we will become the elevated Self of form, and we will know what Jesus is talking about. This is the Christ-consciousness that so often we have longed to experience.
4 – Soon
May the day be soon for all of us.
I am eager today to be completely at home with You, not that I want to die but that I want to live in Your blessing always, as the best that You can make of me. “Home” is heaven on earth, and that I long for with all my heart.
Be with us as we seek to do Your bidding. Your bidding is actually what we ourselves would always choose, because Your will is our real will.
May my brothers and sisters find You today, even as I too seek.
