“What you are called to do is to, through your multitude, sustain Christ-consciousness, and thus create the union of the human and the divine as a new state of being. (The Treatises of A Course of Love: ‘A Treatise on the New,’ 4.18)”
1 – Christ-consciousness
Keep the goal of sustaining Christ-consciousness ever before. Do not lapse into discontent if the day seems hard. On this earth there will be times of doubt. But we know the truth of Jesus’s teaching. He has made his teaching clear for us to comprehend.
2 – New Being
We are asked to have a new being, one that embodies both the human and the divine. The human and the divine has always been our birthright, but we did not know how to reach it until now, perhaps. Now we do know, and we are bade to drop uncertainties and doubts, and to walk into the sunlight with Jesus.
3 – Better Pathway
When we encompass the human and divine as one being, we will know a better pathway. We can read and pray, we can reach out to Jesus (who is always with us), and we will live a happier life. Do not despair, whatever we do. Keep in mind that we have much help, and that Jesus is the companion that we seek the most. He will never let us down.
4 – Special Day
This can be a special day in our sequence of days and nights. We can make great progress today; we can have a breakthrough. We know enough, have enough knowledge, to bring about real change, in cooperation with the Powers that be. God is with us, the Christ Spirit is with us, Jesus is with us (though we really cannot understand how). This day let us turn aside from the thought that we are guilty beings encased in a separate form that isolates us from all others. This idea is a myth, a myth of our egos. And until we realize that we are actually guiltless, we will be lost in fears and anxieties from time to time, for we think that we are disobeying God.
5 – Not Sins, Only Mistakes
We have not sinned, but have merely made correctable mistakes. This thought eliminates the attraction that sin seems to have for us, and we rush to correct the errors that we have made. Then we realize that guiltlessness is our inheritance in this world. We can remove the blocks to the awareness of love in our world, and when we love deeply, there is no room for fear and anxieties.
6 – Light
Let us walk into the light today. Let us have a new beginning.
May I come to understand today, in my innermost being, what You are asking in the union of the human and the divine. May I come closer today to sustaining this state of unity. Please be with me today when I falter and seem to fail. May I not falter and seem to fail.
Thank You for Your presence in my life always. May I know that I am a part of You. Jesus has said this, and I believe it.
