Love and Righteousness

“I had kept saying, at early ACIM meetings, that all I needed to do was to shine my light and the results of that would be the responsibility of my Higher Power. I needed to do the work, but I was to leave the results to God. This is what I had learned from old-timers in AA.”
~ Donald L. O’Dell

The more I studied ACIM and learned from those with more experience in this matter of self-development, I discovered my “light” was already within me – emanating from my True Self.

I discovered my “light” was already within me – emanating from my True Self.

What I really needed to do was to simply wash away all the egoic “crud” in my life and the inner light of mine would automatically become visible.

“The ego is idolatry; the sign of limited and separated self, born in a body, doomed to suffer and to end its life in death. It is the “will” that sees the Will of God as enemy, and takes a form in which it is denied. The ego is the “proof” that strength is weak and love is fearful, life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true.”
ACIM W-pII.12. (What is the Ego?) 1:1-3

Love always wins. Righteousness always wins. Truth and mercy always win. They win in the here and now. They may not win in ways we expect or would like. But they win—how else can we explain the hope or optimism that simply will not die within the human breast? God is love and love won! Jesus of Nazareth was the living embodiment—the incarnation—of the message of the prophets.

A gentle reminder to review those five lifestyle habits I mentioned into weeks ago link here. The goal is to bring clarity to life and improve inner guidance.
