“The consciousness of Christ is your true consciousness. It is a consciousness of pure love.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 9:II
“Pure love.” If we might only realize what this means! We have so misused the word “love” in our world that we often don’t take seriously the arresting spiritual meaning of this word. When we have walked far along toward God, and had satori (fleeting glimpses of the Divine), these will eventually lengthen into Awakening, and it is the Awakening of the consciousness of Christ—a Christ Whom we all share. Because Christ is now a plural concept, we can acknowledge that what Jesus had 2,000 years ago is available to us all. It does not come to us all, but our own preparations can speed the time when we will all know Christ-consciousness. And Christ-consciousness is the next leap in evolution.
Focus on love today. Know that when things go awry, and we want to get back on track, the surest way to do this is to quieten down and go within. The Answer to our dilemmas will be there. And with a clear mind and a loving heart, we can walk a green earth again.
If on the verge of hot feelings with another, just pause; don’t say anything. Know that the loving response is the only true response that protects the other and ourselves. We don’t have to be “right” all the time; we can let God lead our friends and family in the best way that only He knows. We can choose happiness, as A Course in Miracles says (“Would you rather be right or happy?”), and with this choice comes the return of love.
Spend some time today contemplating what love means to us.
There is no better way to spend time.
