“Realize that I am love. Remembering this is enough to bring true peace to your heart and mind.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 2:I
This is a message from Jesus. I think this assertion will work for us when we do follow him as our leader. Following Jesus as our leader and savior is the message of traditional Christianity as well as the recently channeled works which many believe are from Jesus, including this one—Choose Only Love—and A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, and The Way of Mastery.
We need someone who has walked the whole pathway back to God as our guide. When we trust that one, we know that we can have the peace that we feel when we think of him. He paved the way. Now he is inviting us to join him as an equal, not subordinate to him in any way. He got there first, but he wants nothing more than for us to share the love that that journey showed to him. And he takes us by the hand as we walk along.
If we trust Jesus as our leader and guide, oftentimes our savior, we will—he says—experience true peace. And who among us does not want that? Let go of doubts that Jesus is actually speaking to us in this quotation and open the mind and heart to the belief that he is.
When we feel true peace in this belief, we will know all we need to know. We will walk a smooth road back to God, with Jesus’ hand clasped in ours.
