Lesson 239:

The glory of my Father is my own…

How ‘bout it? Can we today, just let the truth of our being be true; not needing to understand any better what that means than wherever we might be at this time? Can we not judge and just allow; just for today, this hour, this moment~ this holy instant? The section called Attainment of the Real World from chapter 13 comes to mind, where it says:”You have been wrong about the world because you have misjudged yourself. From such a twisted reference point, what could you see? All seeing starts with the perceiver, who judges what is true and what is false. And what he judges false he does not see. You who would judge reality cannot see it, for whenever judgment enters reality has slipped away. The out of mind is out of sight, because what is denied is there but is not recognized. Christ is still there, although you know Him not. His Being does not depend upon your recognition. He lives within you in the quiet present, and waits for you to leave the past behind and enter into the world He holds out to you in love”… No one in this distracted world but has seen some glimpses of the other world about him. Yet while he still lays value on his own, he will deny the vision of the other… Love leads so gladly… you but wait for yourself… to give this sad world over and exchange your errors for the peace of God…”

So, how ‘bout we just get over our little selves? Let go and let the glory of our Father, which is within us shine through and show us the real world. Let us accept Christ’s version of us and forgive ours. And let us then look about us and see but love reaching out and love taking love’s hand in glad exchange... for the glory of God is here, now… And it is our own…

We thank you, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. And we honor it, because You share it with us. We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.
