“Life and the movement of being into form is what occurred when God “spoke” and the Word came into being. Movement is energy, the life force of creation and of being, both in unity and in time. By being you are in move¬ment. By being you are an expression of being.
“The second principle of creation, then, is that being is. It is what is and it is the expression of what is.
“Life is movement through the force of expression. The third principle of creation is thus expression.
“These are not, however, separate principles, but a single unifying prin¬ciple of wholeness: Movement, being, expression. One did not occur before the other, as they are not separate. There was movement into being and an expression of being.” (ACOL, D:15.3 – 15.6)
Without movement, caused by the presence of energy, there can be no life. Life leads to being, and then life leads to expression . A miracle, we learn from the new Circle of Atonement edition of A Course in Miracles, is the expression of love. And that is why we are here: to express love.
Jesus gets very precise in this passage for today. It is not necessary to comprehend fully what he is saying in all its ramifications; we probably couldn’t if we tried. But the seed has been planted, and as we move into Christ-consciousness, our intuition will inform us of everything we need to know. The way that guidance works is truly miraculous. We are happiest when we are in flow, responding to hints of the next move, the next thought, the next miracle.
It is very good to experience flow in our expression of life, our being actually reaching out to others and connecting with them. The miracles abound then, building from one to the other, offering us the consolation that we offer to our brothers and sisters.
This is the happiest way to live. We live productively, but we pace to ensure the longevity of our actions. We don’t adopt a hare-like pace, as seen in the old fable of the hare and the tortoise. We learn to take it easy, to relax, and to fulfill our mission in life in a measured fashion. Then we are truly living.
Thank You for this good, busy day. I wonder what I might do to improve on it, and actually I can’t think of a thing. Such is Your grace. Such is Your mercy.
Be with me as the day continues to unfold. Help me to make the right decisions. I ask that You show me the next step. Now and always. Today and every day.
