What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ Here is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the thought of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can only just look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego may be the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) could be attacked or weakened or destroyed. Such a belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit course in miracles, Which is far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for a minute of amusement.
There’s a period when disillusionment comes to your brain which deals in fantasies. And beyond this aspect a whole new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed as the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the entire world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to full cover up the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a world made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “When you meet anyone, remember it is just a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you consider him you will consider yourself. Remember this, for in him you may find yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I am always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening just how and leading a missing flock back to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all!
