We often don’t accept ourselves fully; we are not conscious of our connection to God, Who loves us all equally and sees us as divine children who are loved, oh, so loved by Him. He doesn’t expect us to make drastic changes to be accepted by him, and it is only our rejection of others that then turns back on ourselves with rejection also.
This dynamic, an egoic dynamic, has to end. God will work with us to alter the things that we find difficult in ourselves to accept. He is always near, certain of our rightness, our acceptability. It is our own shortsighted propensity that gives us a problem. And when we pray that our insecurities about ourselves fall away, they will.
We are as God created us. We are–still! This is what A Course in Miracles says, and repeatedly. Ask today to let us see ourselves in a new light, a light of forgiveness, a light of exceedingly good value.
Jesus asserts repeatedly that our real will and God’s will are the same. We are of the stuff of God; He shared His Self with us in our creation, and so how could Reality be otherwise? Reality must be in harmony, in Oneness, or we escape into dreams of chaos, for that is all that madness can make. God does not will specialness for us; neither do we truly will it for ourselves, for always will it separate us from our brother. A Course in Miracles proclaims that actually all of us has everything, nor could we wish for less. The whole is therefore in each part, and each part (our very Self) is neither greater or lesser (more “special” or less) than any other. Meditate upon this truth, and watch vain insecurities and vulnerabilities slink away.
