“Where two are joined together can be used rightly here as well as in regard to relationship. Your choice to separate from God is but a separation from your own Self, and this is truly the separation that needs to be healed to return you to God.” (ACOL, C:17.2)
We are seeking to join our heart and our mind, our personal self (the one without the ego) and our Self, and we are seeking to join with God internally. These are the “two” that are mentioned, and they mean different things in A Course of Love at different times. But since all is One, these changes in terminology do not really matter much. We are seeking to join with our Self, the inner Christ, and when this happens, we have healed the split between God and us; we have healed the separation.
We have truly separated from our true Self. And to get back, earlier we needed the Holy Spirit, for by separating from our Self, we had come to fear God, and we needed an intermediary Who would help us return. Now the era of the Holy Spirit has been superseded by the time of Christ, and we approach God directly, this time without fear.
What a lovely truth—that we can approach God directly, without fear! This may still seem foreign to our ears, for we have felt twinges of fear around the concept of God for so long that we have not known how to seek Him without any fear. Now we do know, for our reading of A Course of Love has paved the way. We seek God in silence, expecting that He will answer us, also in silence.
I would be thankful today of all that You have given me, more blessings than I can count. May I revel in gratitude, for this mellow feeling accomplishes much to lead me to be The Accomplished, as A Course of Love points out.
Help this day to go well. I expect it to go well, and while expectations are not always good, this one has a good feel about it. Help my brothers and sisters to know You. May we all know You. You are here for us in every situation in which we find ourselves, and when we join with our Self, we will know this.
Thank You for being with me, keeping me mellow. Your peace is with me now, and for that I give thanks to You.
