“Now that we have established the consistency of our former purpose, that of establishing your identity, and our new purpose, that of the miracle that will allow you to exist as who you are in human form, we may proceed unencumbered by any doubt you might have had concerning whether or not you would desire the new goal toward which we work.” (ACOL, T3:13.1)
We have accomplished the first goal of A Course of Love: establishing a new identity. If we doubt that, we need only realize how changed we have become, how much more mellow, how much more caring. We don’t think, in an egoic sense, of “me first” any longer. This is great progress.
The next goal is to move toward miracles, specifically a miracle that will allow us to exist as who we are in physical form. This is not the old egoic self, but a new self, borne of the honing of the Christ-Self from deep within. This Christ-Self has also learned in the course of reading ACOL. And this Christ-Self is ready to move us forward into a new tomorrow.
Wouldn’t we like to live peaceably, unencumbered by the regrets of the past? We can, we are promised. We can.
Our physical self will be elevated in this new world. We will know an assurance that all is well, that we are not oscillating between highs and lows, that we are smoothly running our ship. The way is not hard, but it does take some getting used to. We don’t navigate in water the way that we do on land. We flow more smoothly, going with the currents.
And that is what Jesus is asking us to do today.
I seek to be in flow virtually all the time. Even when I am not actively thinking about flow, I do know that it is in the back of my mind. My real Mind. Thank You for leading me to a place of serenity and peace, a place where flow resides.
Be with me today to keep me alert and active, even as I reside in serenity. There is a difference between calm serenity and drowsiness, and I seek to be just in calm serenity. Thank You for guiding me in my prayer life. Thank You for being You.
