As we continue to retrain our minds to live a life based in love and not fear, we realize that a love-based life is letting "all things be exactly as they are." We have no criticism for the world God created when we see it in light and truth. We are not judging God or his creation. We are accepting the truth of God.
Let all things be exactly as they are.
Let me not be Your critic, Lord, today, and judge against You. Let me not attempt to interfere with Your creation, and distort it into sickly forms. Let me be willing to withdraw my wishes from its unity, and thus to let it be as You created it. For thus will I be able, too, to recognize my Self as You created me. In love was I created, and in love will I remain forever. What can frighten me, when I let all things be exactly as they are?
Let not our sight be blasphemous today, nor let our ears attend to lying tongues. Only reality is free of pain. Only reality is free of loss. Only reality is wholly safe. And it is only this we seek today.
Quote of the Day
"No one can escape from illusions unless he looks at them, for not looking is the way they are protected."
