Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety. Patience is natural to the teacher of God. All he sees is certain outcome, at a time perhaps unknown to him as yet, but not in doubt. The time will be as right as is the answer. And this is true for everything that happens now or in the future. The past as well held no mistakes; nothing that did not serve to benefit the world, as well as him to whom it seemed to happen. Perhaps it was not understood at the time. Even so, the teacher of God is willing to reconsider all his past decisions, if they are causing pain to anyone. Patience is natural to those who trust. Sure of the ultimate interpretation of all things in time, no outcome already seen or yet to come can cause them fear. (A Course in Miracles, M-4.VIII)
The Course tells us that all things are lessons God would have us learn. The basic lesson the Holy Spirit has been given to teach us is that we remain united with our Creator as Love and nothing else. Anything we perceive that is not recognized as loving is a call for Love.
On the other hand, the ego perceives everything as “proof” that separation is real. Death the ultimate confirmation of the ego’s belief in separation. While we identify with the ego, we perceive a world of fear, guilt and loss. The ego is always on the lookout for opportunities to blame, attack and defend. Yet what the ego finds, the Holy Spirit reinterprets as opportunities to give Love. The current world perception of a pandemic is a world-wide call for Love. If we perceive it with fear, we are calling for Love. All the disasters, tragedies, wars and killings of the past the Holy Spirit sees as calls for Love.
Today we welcome the Holy Spirit’s lessons in Love. We are willing to accept His vision that sees past the veil of separation to the eternal unity of Love. With His help, we will see the loving answer to the world-wide call for Love. We will see the Holy Spirit’s loving answer to our fear-based calls for Love. As we join with the Holy Spirit, we become messengers of the Answer that brings Love to heal hate and fear, guilt and loss.
Today we choose to be messengers of Love.
