What could harm the ability and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite has no opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can only just look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego could be the belief in vulnerability. It’s the belief that something (anything) may be attacked or weakened or destroyed. Such a belief is but a vain try to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit ACIM AUTHORS, That will be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what exactly is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for a minute of amusement.
There is an occasion when disillusionment concerns the mind which deals in fantasies. And beyond this aspect a whole new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed while the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to hide the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a mind fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a world made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “When you meet anyone, remember it is really a holy encounter. As you see him you might find yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you consider him you’ll consider yourself. Never forget this, for in him you may find yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I am always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening the way and leading a lost flock back again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all or any!
