My salvation comes from me.
Salvation seems to come from anywhere except from you. So, too, does the source of guilt. You see neither guilt nor salvation as in your own mind and nowhere else. When you realize that all guilt is solely an invention of your mind, you also realize that guilt and salvation must be in the same place. In understanding this you are saved.
It’s so simple, so amazingly simple. Everything comes full circle in you. You made guilt, God placed salvation where it is needed most, and so it all dissolves and never was. You are saved. End of story.
Today’s lesson shows you that there is nothing outside of you. Both the problem and the solution are in you. Nothing outside you can hurt you or upset you, you are shown that you are in charge of the universe. What a great lesson. But are you in the experience of it?
It is totally and completely up to you to do the lesson every day. It is up to you to open A Course In Miracles as soon as you open your eyes in the morning. This is your determination. This is your perseverance. If you are still depending on someone to remind you, or to do this for you, you are missing it. You are missing it in a big way.
Nowadays everything is available to you by the stroke of a key. The Internet offers you every kind of experience, every kind of problem and solution, blogs about yoga, meditation and A Course In Miracles. Great. It’s all there for you. But it will do you no good if you are not in the experience of it. It will do you no good if you are still waiting like a child for someone to kick your ass into gear.You are the light of the world. Be about it.
This is not a role that can be partially accepted. And you must surely begin to see that accepting it is salvation.
In this mind training, in this awakening, there is a definite sort-out that takes place. And you want to make sure that you are in the boat. This takes vigilance. Jesus has told you thousands of years ago to keep your wick trimmed, to not hide your light under a bushel. You know by now what it is you need to do, and it is up to you to take a step towards it. Be the light, stay in the experience, practice the lesson. Accept things that are helpful, and let go of things that are not. You know the difference. You have gone past the lesson ‘I don’t know what anything is for’ and you come to recognize that the meaning of all things is revealed to you. Come on. Stop hiding. Step out. Open your book right now and read the lesson, practice it, teach it. The time has come and is now for you to take your place among the saviors of the world.
