What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the thought of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego could be the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) may be attacked or weakened or destroyed AUTHOR OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES. This kind of belief is but a vain try to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, 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 the sleepy child plays for an instant of amusement.
There is an occasion when disillusionment concerns your brain which deals in fantasies. And beyond this point a complete new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed while the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the planet of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to full cover up the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a world made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “Whenever you meet anyone, remember it is really a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you think of him you’ll think of yourself. Always remember this, for in him you will see yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re 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 the way in which and leading a missing flock back again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to any or all!
