Praying to Christ in anyone is true prayer because it is a gift of thanks to His Father. To ask that Christ be but Himself is not an entreaty. It is a song of thanksgiving for what you are. Herein lies the power of prayer. It asks nothing and receives everything. This prayer can be shared because it receives for everyone. To pray with one who knows that this is true is to be answered. Perhaps the specific form of resolution for a specific problem will occur to either of you; it does not matter which. Perhaps it will reach both, if you are genuinely attuned to one another. It will come because you have realized that Christ is in both of you. That is its only truth.
Today is Thanksgiving, a time you spend with family and friends. It is a good moment to look around you and be grateful for all that you have been given, it is also a good moment to go inward and remember your purpose. As you look around the room, around the dinner table, it is your decision to recognize the Christ in you and those you meet. As you recognize the Christ in whomever is sitting next to you, you recognize the Christ in yourself. What a gift. The beauty is in its simplicity. Salvation is not hard. Awakening is the simple recognition that there is nothing outside of you, nothing that can distract you from the knowledge that you are as God created you. Stand in this knowledge today, in the awareness of your Holiness, and give yourself away. There is no greater gift to give this Thanksgiving day.
I will not hurt myself again today.
Let us this day accept forgiveness as our only function Why should we attack our minds, and give them images of pain? Why should we teach them they are powerless, when God holds out His power and His Love, and bids them take what is already theirs? The mind that is made willing to accept God’s gifts has been restored to spirit, and extends its freedom and its joy, as is the Will of God united with its own. The Self Which God created cannot sin, and therefore cannot suffer. Let us choose today that He be our Identity, and thus escape forever from all things the dream of fear appears to offer us.
Father, Your Son can not be hurt And if we think we suffer, we but fail to know our one Identity we share with You. We would return to It today, to be made free forever from all our mistakes, and to be saved from what we thought we were.
