This lesson feels like a wonderful culmination of the past few days: We have sought Christ, we have gotten rid of conflict and we are living in the now without fear. It is time to bathe in this light and spend a day in fearlessness and love. Be gentle with yourself today, notice everything around you from the blue sky to the smile you project inside and out. Spend the entire day in love.
In fearlessness and love I spend today.
This day, my Father, would I spend with You, as You have chosen all my days should be. And what I will experience is not of time at all. The joy that comes to me is not of days nor hours, for it comes from Heaven to Your Son. This day will be Your sweet reminder to remember You, Your gracious calling to Your holy Son, the sign Your grace has come to me, and that it is Your Will I be set free today.
We spend this day together, you and I. And all the world joins with us in our song of thankfulness and joy to Him Who gave salvation to us, and Who set us free. We are restored to peace and holiness. There is no room in us for fear today, for we have welcomed love into our hearts.
Quote of the Day
"Traditionally, we think of forgiveness as something we are to do when we see guilt in someone. In the Course, however, we're taught that it's our function to remember that there is no guilt in anyone, because only love is real. It is our function to see through the illusion of guilt, to the innocence that lies beyond."
