“Rejoice in this concrete, perfect means to enlighten the nations. You, specifically you, are here as the light of the world.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 10:IV
This assertion, made by Jesus in a scribed work, Choose Only Love, is meant for each of us reading his words. Think of the gift given to us, to be the light of the world! And we can be this, rather than doing a prescribed set of actions. Being is extolled above doing just all the time in Choose Only Love as well as A Course of Love (also scribed by Jesus).
The only way, the only way, that we can fulfill our purpose is to live in love–not as a sometime thing, but a constant. When we don’t live in love, we lose ourselves in patterns of the egoic fear that is still with us, with us out of habit of mind–not heart. The heart, our center of being, knows better. And we feel with our heart, we ARE loving.
Ask what effortless thing we might do today as we live our being. Service in the world is what we are about, even as so are the angels who attend us.
With a determination to “be,” we will be happy. Nothing can deter the living out of an era that has now arrived, the time of Christ.
He asks us just to remember, and in the remembering from an ancient past, we are healed.
