“Everything you attract in your life is perfect because, in agreement with God, it is what you have created as your experience on Earth. . . .[W]e are remembering today: to stop spreading guilt and to start gathering the harvest that is already yours. . . .” Choose Only Love: Let Yourself Be Loved (COL bk.2, 8:I)
We are living a perfect life. Oh, I know it might not seem like that, but it is the truth—for everything that happens to us has been ordained by God for our lifting up into Christ-consciousness and salvific living. Even if we are in pain, still this is true. Even if we are suffering, still this is true. If we wrap our minds and hearts around this idea, we will know a peace that has eluded us until now. We will know that all is right in our little world.
A Course in Miracles says that it is not necessary to learn through pain, that learning through rewards is more lasting. If we can believe this, we can alter the pain and suffering that we sometimes bring to ourselves. Often our guilt is what has attracted the negativity, and guilt is a false witness to the love of God. If we gather our harvest, we will know that there is no good reason for us to punish ourselves anymore. We are blessed children, creations, of God, and it is time that we started believing that and living it accordingly.
Accept this truth of being into our being today. Live with God in our minds and hearts, and He will do all the rest. God needs only our cooperation to bring everything good into our lives.
