“There is no loss but only gain within the laws of love.
“By saying that there is no loss but only gain within the laws of love, you are being told to have no fear. Fear of loss is a great temptation of the human experience. If it were not for this fear of loss, you would not find it difficult to live by the thought system of the truth. This fear relates very strongly to your ideas of change and as such is the greatest detriment to your new beginning.” (ACOL, T3:16.11 – 16.12)
We have often held onto our treasures because we feared what how we would feel if we lost them. This is as true on intangible treasures as it is of material ones, perhaps even more so. We clung to our special relationships for what they could give us, never realizing that we were doing a disservice by clinging.
We need to be unafraid of change. Change is as true of God as of us, especially as it pertains to our personal selves, which undergo much change as time unfolds. God has been described as the Unmovable, but perhaps this is not quite true. Would God be the only part of Life never to change? How would the universe grow and evolve, for we have learned in both A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love that God is the All, the Ground of all Being. We are a part of Him. And we change.
God’s individuation created all of us. So, if God is not afraid of change, should we be?
We need have no fear. There is truly no need to have fear. If we become overwrought about something, perhaps our little or personal self has been challenged or threatened. Perhaps there is no reason to feel that a benevolent God has abandoned us. Of course not. So why fear? We are always given solace, even in the worst disasters and challenges which we are called upon to experience.
We only know gain. If we can take this idea unto ourselves, much of our worrying will cease.
Let our worrying cease today.
May my fear of any and all changes cease now, today. Life evolves as we live it. I don’t have to give up anything when God is looking out for me. I don’t have to be fearful of loss, for in love there is no loss. And love is my reason for being.
Be with me today. Help me to love greatly. Love much.
