“ ‘I am safe and nothing that I do or do not do will threaten my safety.’
“As you say these words you will realize that you do believe in them. You believe, but you cannot imagine the truth of these words really being repre¬sented in the life you live here. This you must now do. You must represent the truth of these words with your life.
“You are not, however, meant to test these words with foolish acts. To do so would be to act as if this were magic rather than the truth.” (ACOL, T3:13.8 – 13.10)
Our safety has always been of great concern to us. We haven’t really believed that it was possible to be safe in an unsafe world. But when we look upward, and set our sights on something beyond just the mundane, we can and will take our place among those who know themselves to be safe, protected by God.
We are not meant to take dangerous risks with our life. That would be an attempt to prove to ourselves that magic works. The physical can still harm our physical bodies. But not nearly so often as when the material was all we seemed to want. When we look to the intangibles, we are safe, for nothing can take away our emotional peace when we feel ourselves enfolded in the arms of God.
Feel God’s love today. Commune with Him. Know that deep within is a Self Who is united with God, that we don’t have to look externally, somewhere far beyond the universe, for a real world that includes God on a throne. The real world is here and now. True reality is beckoning for us to believe in its justice for all people. True reality needs our contributions.
We are not meant to reach out to those who are not ready. Not everyone is ready for the message of A Course of Love. We hold our peace, live our new beliefs, and see whether or not anybody else is interested.
They will be, in time. Eternity is a positive trend in our lives; time is not. Time is the place of egoic binding to a physical world that holds no relief for us. Eternity allows the elevated Self of form to thrive.
Let us thrive today.
This quotation in today’s blog really speaks to me. Thank You. All of us wish to be safe in what is sometimes an unsafe world. I don’t look to magic, but I do look to You. My emotional peace is one of the greatest gifts that You can give to me. Thank You.
Be with me on this lovely day. May I enjoy the benefits of a day well lived. May this be the first of the rest of my life, lived in peace.
All of us want this.
