To begin many of my meditations I usually start by using the “Course” as my Oracle, randomly opening the book and using the text on that page to contemplate.. Today I opened to ACIM Text chapter 13 – The Guiltless World, Section 7 – The Attainment of the Real World ppg.257
“Whenever you are tempted to undertake a foolish journey that would lead AWAY from light, remember what you REALLY want, and say,
“The Holy Spirit leads me unto Christ, and where else would I go? What need have I but to awake in Him?”
Then follow Him in joy, with faith that He will lead you safely through all the dangers to your peace of mind that this world sets before you. Kneel not before the altars to sacrifice, and seek not what you will surely lose. Content yourselves with what you will as surely KEEP, and be not restless, for you undertake a quiet journey to the peace of God, where He would have you be in quietness
In me, you have ALREADY overcome EVERY temptation that would hold you back. We walk together on the way to quietness that is the gift of God. Hold me dear, for what EXCEPT your brothers CAN you need? We will restore to you the peace of mind that we MUST find together. The Holy Spirit will teach you to awaken unto us, and to yourself. THIS is the only REAL need to be fulfilled in time. Salvation FROM the world lies ONLY here. My peace I GIVE you. TAKE it of me, in glad exchange for all the world has offered but to TAKE AWAY. And we will spread it, like a veil of light, across the world’s sad face, in which we hide our brothers FROM the world, and it from them.
We cannot sing redemption’s hymn alone. My task is not completed ’til I have lifted every voice with mine. And yet it is NOT mine, for as it is my gift to you, so was it the Father’s gift to me, given me through His Spirit.”
What wonderful advice and direction in today’s troubled world plagued with Virus, Riots, Lockdown , Business and Income uncertainty – just to name a few altars to sacrifice.
