“Let yourself be transformed more every day by my love and you will see that your path will be as serene and harmonious as a summer breeze.” Choose Only Love bk.2, 21:II
This is a statement attributed to Jesus, in which he affirms the life-changing result of letting ourselves be transformed by the love that he feels for us. Not the love that we feel for him, but the love that he feels for us. We therefore have very little to do with our transformation. We simply have to hold ourselves ready to receive, to receive love from him.
Very little is actually asked of us in salvation/transformation. That little is the fact of being open to the change, the transformation. The Holy Spirit (A Course in Miracles) or the Christ-Self (A Course of Love) will effect the change, but only when we are responsive. We must be ready, but we don’t have to ready ourselves. A Higher Power will ready us. And we only have to be willing to receive from Jesus and his holy companions.
The outcome of our receptive spirit is a path as “serene and harmonious as a summer breeze.” Would we not want this? What are we waiting for?
Clear our mind, open our heart, and be prepared for a transformation. It is just that simple, and just that profound.
Let’s decide today to allow this alteration in ourselves to come about. It takes our decision, nothing more. When we decide for truth, truth finds us.
And we are never the same again.
