“That Love which God is, is incomprehensible forever! The sunbeam can never comprehend the sun. I am a sunbeam to that sun. You are a sunbeam to that sun. We are therefore made of one substance, and that substance alone sustains us throughout eternity. The greatest of joys is to surrender fully into allowing that Light to light your way without ceasing.” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 12, Page 151)
We too are sunbeams to the sun, for we are actually no different from Jesus. He has just walked ahead of us a little. And now he returns to take us home with him. The pathway is clear, and we need but to surrender to God’s love, and we will be taken home to Him.
Would we like more joy in our lives? This pathway is the way. When our heart is loving and our mind is peaceful, we are walking in the right direction. And it does take surrender to God, for He cannot help us if we resist Him. Surrender is not a passive subjugation; it is the sincerest form of love for our Maker. He loves and loves and loves, and when we open to His love, we know a peace and happiness that is unavailable to us when we are in denial of Him.
His Light will light the way for us. His Light will do what everything in this world has failed to do. Haven’t we had enough of resisting Him? Haven’t we had enough of trying to be joyous in ourselves, without His blessing upon our choices?
Choose to develop a loving demeanor today. A loving heart and a peaceful mind will take us far.
Right into the arms of God, Who plans all things for our benefit.
