“This cooperation is natural when fear has been rejected. You have long embraced fear and rejected love. Now the reverse is true. This reversal of truth has changed the nature of your universe and the laws by which it operates. The laws of fear were laws of struggle, limits, danger, and competitiveness. The laws of love are laws of peace, abundance, safety, and cooperation. Your actions and the results of your actions in a universe of love will naturally be different from your actions and the results of your actions in a universe of fear. You set the laws of the universe when you chose fear. The laws of the universe of love are God-given.” (A Course of Love, C:20.30 – 20.31)
We need love; it is our very nature. We have lived for a long time in the “tiny, mad idea” (from A Course in Miracles) that gave us a universe of fear. We were not at home there; we struggled mightily. We listened to an egoic persona that did not mean us well, that tried to protect us by isolating us from each other in a cacophony of diverse sounds that spelled “fear” to us. We never felt safe, because we never were safe. Our “creations” had come back to haunt us.
But now all that can change. Now we know better. In a universe of love, we know peace abundance, safety, cooperation. Our laws of struggle, limits danger, and competitiveness are not outdated. What a joy to envision what awaits us in this new age! We are safe because we are no longer “creating” with the ego; we are working within the laws of God, laws which complement our true reality. We are homebound, safe in a universe where love reigns and where we have turned aside from the ego and its sad and forlorn dictates.
