Day 22 of 40 day Prosperity Plan
“I lift up my mind and heart to be aware, to understand and to know that the Divine Presence I AM is the Source and Substance of ALL my Good.”
The following quote from The Course in Miracles is my lesson for today:
Lesson 267 – My heart is beating in the peace of God
Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength. I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving arms. Each heartbeat calls His Name, and everyone is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him.
“Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. Father, my heart is beating in the peace the Heart of Love created. It is there and only there that I can be at home.”
There is a sense of security in the idea of ‘Home’. The ideal Home is a place of belonging, welcoming, always provided for, a place of Peace and comfort and the feeling of being unconditionally loved and accepted. At home as a child I feel connected to “…the source and substance of all my good”
How this is experienced for each of us depends on the level of consciousness of the parents at the time they were raising us.
I think deep within every being is implanted the notion of “Home”. The exceptions to this ideal only proves its presence by the longings we feel in life for its fulfillment. We try in marriage to build what was lacking in our growing up and hope to gain unconditional love, Peace, acceptance, joy and goodness only to find we fall short of this feeling here as well.
Many of us came to the spiritual path looking for the fulfillment of this promise. After trying many different sources of comfort and experiencing failure we turn to God the Father/Mother of a new family.
As a friend told me about her experience in Church: “They all seemed so happy there.”
Thank you Mother/Father God for taking me in.
