Lesson 106

dynamic_stillness1

Let me be still and listen to the truth.

If you will lay aside the ego’s voice, however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts that give you nothing that you really want; if you will listen with an open mind, that has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in Its messages.

The beauty of A Course In Miracles is really that it has nothing to do with any comparison whatsoever. It tells you that truth is true and nothing else is true. In letting go of the illusion, the truth reveals itself. It has always been there, waiting for you to let go of your nightmare. And a nightmare it is.

The experience of the happiness, peace and love of God has nothing to do with this world whatsoever. All this world offers you is comparison. You feel happy because you are better of than somebody else. That has nothing to do with happiness, that is hell. True happiness is of God, it is whole in and of itself. In your communication with your Father you experience a happiness that has nothing to do with circumstances, it is a state of mind. And that happiness radiates to everyone and everything.

A Course In Miracles is the only book that will tell you that this world has nothing to do with reality, and that it does not exist. That is the experience that I am having, and that is what I want to offer you. This goes beyond tiptoeing through the tulips, this goes beyond disregarding war and pain and suffering. It is about taking full responsibility for it all, to stand in the middle of it and know that it is not so. That experience is of God. It is given you. And the lesson for today leads the way.

Be not afraid today to circumvent the voices of the world. Walk lightly past their meaningless persuasion. Hear them not. Be still today and listen to the truth. Go past all things which do not speak of Him Who holds your happiness within His Hand, held out to you in welcome and in love. Hear only Him today, and do not wait to reach Him longer. Hear one Voice today.

I am personally taking full responsibility for what I see and I ask for help. Show me, Father, lead the way. How can I be truly helpful? This is for my awakening, and in your practice of the Course you will experience that it is about your personal awakening. Don’t compare yourself. Be true to what you are. Great minds have gone before you and have been shunned. So what… you don’t really have a choice in the matter. Give your light away. Let God show you where to go and what to do.

Today the holy Word of God is kept through your receiving it to give away, so you can teach the world what giving means by listening and learning it of Him. Do not forget today to reinforce your choice to hear and to receive the Word by this reminder, given to yourself as often as is possible today:

Let me be still and listen to the truth.
I am the messenger of God today, My voice is His, to give what I receive.
