What would happen if we looked inside ourselves and instead of fear, wrong, confusion or any bad thing, we found peace, love and innocence? We would see the truth. God sees us in his image. It is his will that we see ourselves in his image. Let's look inside, there is nothing to fear.
I will not fear to look within today.
Within me is eternal innocence, because it is God's Will that it be there forever and forever. I, His Son, whose will is limitless as is His Own, can will no change in this. For to deny my Father's Will is to deny my own. To look within is but to find my will as God created it, and as it is. I fear to look within because I think I made another will that is not true, and made it real. Yet it has no effects. Within me is the Holiness of God. Within me is the memory of Him.
The step I take today, my Father, is my sure release from idle dreams of sin. Your altar stands serene and undefiled. It is the holy altar to my Self, and there I find my true Identity.
Quote of the Day
"Our job as a teacher of God, should we choose to accept it, is to constantly seek a greater capacity for love and forgiveness within ourselves. We do this through a 'selective remembering,' a conscious decision to remember only loving thoughts and let go of any fearful ones. This is the meaning of forgiveness."
