“Your experiences in their totality you call your life. Yet you have stood apart from these experiences—all of them. You can look back on your life and see its form. You could write an autobiography describing every expe¬rience you encountered between your earliest memory and the present moment and it would say nothing about you if it related the experiences only as physical events. Your experiences may, in their totality, be called your life, but they cannot be called you. You stand apart. And yet in your choice of, and response to your experiences were you revealed, because, in this way only, were you a creator.” (ACOL, D:Day36.3)
When we lived through eons previous to now, we lived our experiences and responded to them, making them what we would. In that sense, we were a creator, though what we made was all illusion, informed by the ego.
Now we know something better. We are truly creating true reality, and in this our experiences and our responses to them create in a way that has been denied us previously. Now God can trust us more, knowing that nothing we create will put the universe in jeopardy. Formerly, He had to restrict us, because otherwise we might have made something bad that would be lasting. This does not contradict free will, which we have always had. But, as A Course in Miracles says, we had an imprisoned will, and in this we destroyed our true freedom.
Now we are walking into a new day. The light illumines the environment ever more brightly. We see with a vision that is not of this world. And in the seeing, we create anew. Indeed, we are prompted to create a new world entirely.
The “you” that we have been, now and previously, stood apart from our experiences that were viewed as physical events. It is in our responses that we truly become distinct. And our responses now are ever better. This is why God can trust us now. He knows that we will create well in a state of mind and heart that has not be accessed previously.
I would walk into the sunlight today, with You, with my new vision. I would see things that have been denied me before. I can see most clearly when I am relaxed and mellow. I ask You to move toward my personality with relaxation and mellowness today.
I do have some control over how I respond. I am not an automaton. I do have free will, and Your will and mine are actually identical. I certainly won’t fight You any longer; that attitude was gone a long time ago.
Be with me for a mellow, relaxed, and perfect day. Thank You.
