04-08-20 Remember You are Dreaming Part 2
A Course in Miracles teaches that we must take full responsibility for our state of mind. Things are not happening to us they are happening for us. Everything that is happening we are asking for. We do have the power to choose again and align with God. It seems so real that we are the victim of circumstances such as an unloving family, abusive relationships, addiction, dependency, self-hatred and so on but we are actually generating these ideas by listening to ego thinking. The ego does not want us to look within it tells us that we are so dark and that we must never look at who we are. As we look closely at ourselves it can seem pretty dark. But as we go deeper what is really underneath all the hate is God’s love. It is our birthright to be in joy to love unconditionally, but we must release all the blocks to loves presence to allow this experience to be remembered
“No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is.” W-pI.152.1.
“Let us today be truly humble, and accept what we have made as what it is. The power of decision is our own. Decide but to accept your rightful place as co-creator of the universe, and all you think you made will disappear. What rises to awareness then will be all that there ever was, eternally as it is now. And it will take the place of self-deceptions made but to usurp the altar to the Father and the Son.” A Course in Miracles W-pI.152.8.
