“[W]hat happens when this oneness is accomplished is that divine memories arise to replace perception. This is miracle-mindedness. The accomplishment of this state of being is what you are here for. It is your return to your Self. It heralds the return of heaven through the second coming of Christ, the energy that will bridge the two worlds. (Treatises of A Course of Love: Treatise on the Art of Thought, 6.9)”
Affirmation: “I seek oneness today.”
1 – Divine Memories
There is much of importance summarized in this short passage for today. We do want divine memories to replace perception, for divine memories include memories of the real world, and the real world is not one seen through perception. Perception is always inaccurate, to one degree or another. It is true that miracles themselves are perceptual (from A Course in Miracles), but they are the highest form of perception. And when we have reached miracle-mindedness as a constant state, we will know our Self/Christ. And we will embody the elevated Self of form. We will have reached Christ-consciousness. And heaven will be with us, for which we do not have to die.
2 – Promises
These are genuine promises made in the Treatises of A Course of Love. And when believed, these promises are enormously liberating. We know that we can experience heaven on earth, even before we in fact do experience it. We also see snatches, glimpses, of heaven on earth before this state is continuously experienced.
3 – Time of Christ
We are, according to the trilogy of ACOL, in the time of the second coming of Christ. The books never identify if there is to be a physical embodiment of Jesus again. The spiritual entity of Jesus is with us, though, for certain. He comes in response to one unequivocal call, a statement from A Course in Miracles that I have often quoted in this blog. I have found it to be true. Not that I have seen a vision, but that I have experienced the calm that comes from imagining that Jesus is near. And does he not immediately calm the heart as the first step to all healing? Distraught people do not usually believe that healing is possible, and belief in healing is necessary, if we can believe the New Testament, and I believe that we can.
I would replace my perceptual memories today with divine memories. This is a step toward the sustaining of Christ-consciousness. And You are there for me, as is Jesus. Never let doubts come to me. May I have no dark night of the soul. And, if trouble comes, may I always know to Whom to turn–You.
We are living in the time of Christ. This is a great blessing. This world does not seem yet to recognize this, for this world is very troubled. But the healing of our world will come, and I believe sooner than we think.
Be with us today for a good day. I ask this so often, because a string of pearls, like good days, is a beauty to behold. Help me to know Your guidance today, and to follow it unflinchingly.
