What could harm the power and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ Here is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) could be attacked or weakened or destroyed. Such a belief is but a vain try to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit AUTHOR OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES, Which will be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game that a sleepy child plays for a moment of amusement.
There is a time when disillusionment involves the mind which deals in fantasies. And beyond this point a whole new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed since the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the entire world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the worth of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to cover the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a mind fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to some sort of made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “Once you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you might find yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you consider him you’ll consider yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will discover yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they are given another chance at salvation. Don’t leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I’m always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening just how and leading a lost flock back once again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to any or all!
