Lesson 299:

Eternal holiness abides in me…

Eternal: always, forever. Holiness: pure, uncompromising, being… Life force, itself…. Love’s expansive extending… creation…

What is this eternal holiness which abides in us? Is it not the Christ we share as the Son of God; known only when our will is in unison with God, our Father…

Yet, we see the reflection of this eternal holiness everywhere, if we have eyes to see; in every act of kindness, every smile, and friendly hand. We feel its heartbeat as we observe children play, or recognize ourselves in a stranger’s story; bonding us as friends. It is the awareness of communication of the lover and the beloved. It is what is left of every experience in this so-called life once forgiveness has had its way with it. It is the only experience we really want … yes?

We can’t mess it up. We can’t acquire it. We can’t loose it.

We can know our holiness in answering the call to ‘know thy Self’… This is the same as accepting the Atonement for ourselves and letting all things be exactly as they are; as God created all creation to know itself….

Please join me in today’s prayer:

“Father, my holiness is not of me. It is not mine it be destroyed by sin. It is not mine to suffer from attack. Illusions can obscure it, but can not put out its radiance, nor dim its light. It stands forever perfect and untouched. In it are all things healed, for they remain as You created them. And I can know my holiness. For Holiness Itself created me, and I can know my Source because it is Your Will that You be known…”
