“What were the earth and water if they were not form?
“They were barren form. Form unable to create or bear fruit. Form was simply barren form before movement swept across it and animated it with the attention and awareness of spirit—with sound, light, and expression. Could these barren forms not be compared to the forms of the not yet elevated?” (ACOL, D:15.9 – 15.10)
The forms of the not yet elevated have been restricted, in that we have been living a dream; A Course in Miracles makes this clear, and now A Course of Love is expanding the idea. Here Jesus tells us that our form has not been all that they could be. While we HAVE been animated with spirit, we have not known spirit fully. To know spirit fully is to be in unity, in unity, heart and mind, and in unity with the Self, the inner Christ-Self and the larger Self of union.
Jesus’s intentions may seem like a tall order. But he is right here helping us throughout the change that he so fervently longs to see in each of us. He would like all to reach Christ-consciousness, in unity, and to express our love in the ultimate salvation, Christ-consciousness. We can do this, for it is fully within God’s will. We will reach Christ-consciousness when God Himself knows that we are fully ready, and this means that many more nefarious aspects of what we might do will no longer be attractive to us. We will live in love, in love with the Self whom we are, and in love with the Self whom we share with all of our brothers and sisters.
The future is bright with promise. Let us relax in God’s care, holding Jesus’s hand, as we seek to walk afresh in this world. We can have anything that we truly want, for all has been given to us and we will not want things that are beyond our scope. Ask that all needs be satisfied, and the Answer is sure.
I thank You for this good day. I wish for many things, but I know that You will give me only what has my name on it. And ultimately, that means that all things are shared with me. This is the truth of heaven, and heaven can be here, on earth. If we live right, the blessings of Creation and of You are ours always. You just have to be sure that we won’t misuse what You give, freely and without strings attached.
My needs will be satisfied, and many of my wants as well. Perhaps to satisfy all wants would not be good for me. But I ask Your patience in my prayers. Shape my words to be according to Your will, a will that I share fully.
