A Course of Love · ACOL

Spend a While in Quiet Reflection

“You have felt this shift coming and so has the world. This is the yearning we have spoken of as the proof of love’s existence and of your existence in a state of unity rather than a state of separation. This yearning called you to the limits of the state of consciousness that was the time of the Holy Spirit. This limit acted upon you as a catalyst to create desire for the new.” (ACOL, T4:1.22)

We do want changes in our world. We do want to create the new. We have become a little bored with the status quo.

But don’t choose new things in a willy-nilly fashion. Be discerning in what we create, for we do create our own reality—as New Age thought says. And this creation of the new, defined as Jesus defines it in this fourth treatise of A Course of Love, will create a world that is miles ahead of what we have had in the past. Things in the new era will get wonderfully better. We will welcome in a new world, not by struggle but by being all that we can be.

We don’t need to make elaborate plans about what to do to effect change. Just go along, watching for signs, for signs are discussed in ACOL in a very encouraging way. A Course in Miracles warned against planning that was not instigated by the Holy Spirit; our own planning would take us off the pathway back to God. Ask what we ought to do. Just ask. And then wait, in patience, for the Answer. We won’t have long to wait.

We have yearned for God’s nod. We have yearned for a better experience of living. And now the time is ripe for these yearnings to bear fruit.

Spend a while in quiet reflection. Ask, and we shall receive. Our probable reality can develop into quite a nice future in which to live.

Prayer

I thank You for the many blessings that have rained down upon me in this lifetime. Any pain has receded; any struggles, passed away. Now is the time of the harvest of what You have had me create. I hope that this harvest of good things will benefit my loved ones and the larger world as well.

Be with me today and always. I ask this just all the time, but it is a heartfelt request. When I feel Your warmth, I know that all is well in my little world.

Amen.
