God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
What else could it be for God and Good are but synonymous.
We have been taught that God is punishing; “Vengeance is Mine!” He is supposed to have said. This is insanity, for this statement belongs to the ego, not to God!
1 Today we will continue with the theme of happiness. (Can You think of a better, kinder one? There is not any! God wills happiness not just for You, but for all Your Others.) This is a key idea in understanding what salvation means. Listen keenly to all of My words here. You still believe it asks for suffering as penance for your “sins.” This is not so. Yet you must think it so while you believe that sin is real and that God’s Son can sin. If sin is real, then punishment is just and cannot be escaped. Salvation thus cannot be purchased but through suffering. What a travesty of the Love of God!
2 If sin is real then happiness must be illusion, for they cannot both be true. The sinful warrant only death and pain, and it is this they ask for, for they know it waits for them and it will seek them out and find them somewhere, sometime, in some form which evens the account they owe to God. They would escape Him in their fear. And yet He will pursue, and they cannot escape. Can You believe You think this of Your God of Love? These thoughts are but of the ego! Vicious thing, punishing. For: “Vengeance is mine!” is what it sings.
3 If sin is real, salvation must be pain. Pain is the cost of sin, and suffering can never be escaped if sin is real. What do You mean: if sin is real? I see it all around Me. How can You say “if” when it’s obvious that it is quite real? Anyone can see its reality! Salvation must be feared, for it will kill but slowly, taking everything away before it grants the welcome boon of death to victims who are little more than bones before salvation is appeased. Its wrath is boundless, merciless, but wholly just. Thus do religions tend to teach, this or some variation. And yet: God is Love. That is Truth, and that’s all You need to know.
The ego, being vicious and malicious – as I have said before – hates God Be-ing Love, for it cannot live in such a benign atmosphere. Thus, a god of wrath must be invented..
Who could really Love a god like that, one that must be constantly propitiated by sacrifice.
4 Who would seek out such savage punishment? Who would not flee salvation and attempt in every way he can to drown the Voice Which offers it to him? Why would he try to listen and accept Its offering? If sin is real, its offering is death and meted out in cruel form to match the vicious wishes in which sin is born. Thus the idea of ‘hell’ was invented. And would You go to hell if You understood that all of this is pure delusion? If sin is real, salvation has become your bitter enemy, the curse of God upon you who have crucified His Son. Let Me say it plainly: sin is not real; there is no hell. The entire dream is but pure delusion.
5 You need the practice periods today. You need to learn Your lovely innocence. The exercises teach sin is not real, and all that you believe must come from sin will never happen, for it has no cause. Accept Atonement with an open mind which cherishes no lingering belief that you have made a devil of God’s Son. You have done nothing but believe Your seeming endless dreaming. And You can wake up!
6 There is no sin. We practice with this thought as often as we can today because it is the basis for today’s idea. God’s Will for you is perfect happiness because there is no sin, and suffering is causeless. Joy is just, and pain is but the sign you have misunderstood yourself. You are so belovèd, even while You toss in dreams of agony, safe in the gentle arms of Love.
7 Fear not the Will of God. But turn to it in confidence that it will set you free from all the consequences sin has wrought in feverish imagination. Say:
8 God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
There is no sin; it has no consequence.
It’s all been nothing but endless dreaming. Dreams are never real!
9 So should you start your practice periods, and then attempt again to find the joy these thoughts will introduce into your mind. Give these five minutes gladly to remove the heavy load you laid upon yourself with the insane belief that sin is real. These five minutes are Your vacation from all the awful dreams.
10 Today escape from madness. You are set on freedom’s road, and now today’s idea brings wings to speed you on and hope to go still faster to the waiting goal of peace. There is no sin. The dream is not real and never has been. Remember this today, and tell yourself as often as you can:
11 God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.
This is the truth because there is no sin.
There is no punishment for dreaming, and I am still God’s Holy belovèd One.
Thank God, it is quite safe to Awaken
[Thank you Dear Brother]
