Holiness actually inhabits us. It is in us as a desire that yearns to be applied. Doing good and giving love is unmatched in its ability to sooth, heal, teach and cause us to grow. This lesson helps us understand that holiness has power because it is not from us or limited by us. The holiness that abides in us is directly from God.
Eternal holiness abides in me.
My holiness is far beyond my own ability to understand or know. Yet God, my Father, Who created it, acknowledges my holiness as His. Our Will, together, understands it. And Our Will, together, knows that it is so.
Father, my holiness is not of me. It is not mine to be destroyed by sin. It is not mine to suffer from attack. Illusions can obscure it, but can not put out its radiance, nor dim its light. It stands forever perfect and untouched. In it are all things healed, for they remain as You created them. And I can know my holiness. For Holiness Itself created me, and I can know my Source because it is Your Will that You be known.
Quote of the Day "There is no more powerful motivation than to feel we're being used in the creation of a world where love has healed all wounds."
