Charmed Lives

“God is being in unity and relationship with everything. Thus God knows you. God is one in being with you because you are one aspect of every¬thing. As one being in unity and relationship with everything God is one with every thought and every feeling. God is one with every creation. God is all knowing. God is, in short, the collective consciousness and the collec¬tive consciousness is that which links every being with every other being in unity and relationship.” (ACOL, D:Day37.21)

Again we get indications of Who God is. Jesus emphasizes these ideas in the final pages of A Course of Love. The basic idea is that God is one with everything, knowing every thought and feeling, living through us. This is light years away from traditional Christianity, which holds that God is above His creation, and that all creation is God’s “handiwork.” The traditional view would believe that there is a distant Figure Who comes down to us when we pray. The Course in Miracles and Course of Love view is that God never left, because we are part and parcel of Who He is. We are “God-stuff,” the material of the universes. And we join with the Whole, as ACOL would have it, in unity and relationship.

Our union with the All is precious to us. If we truly mystically affirm this idea, we are set for life. We know that we are never alone, never off by ourselves to plan a life. Truly the cosmos is grander, far grander, than we can imagine. But God lets us in on His secrets when we turn a welcome ear to Him. His way assures us a charmed life.

Dear God,

I would live a charmed life today. I would recognize that following Your way gets me all that I could ever want or hope for. And what is this but a charmed life?

Thank You for giving me good days when I allow You to take me over.

Amen.
