Love created me like itself

One of the best definitions of God, Ultimate Reality, the Source and so on is Love. Love is the reason the universe exists. Also remember in Genesis is written that the Creator created us in own male/female image (thus agreeing with Jungian psychology that we all have male and female aspects no matter what our external makeup). So truly Love created us in own image of love. That is our God given function.

From ACIM workbook:

Today’s idea is a complete and accurate statement of what you are. This is why you are the light of the world. This is why God appointed you as the world’s savior. This is why the Son of God looks to you for his salvation. He is saved by what you are…

In the longer practice period, we will think about your reality and its wholly unchanged and unchangeable nature. We will begin by repeating this truth about you, and then spend a few minutes adding some relevant thoughts, such as:

Holiness created me holy.
Kindness created me kind.
Helpfulness created me helpful.
Perfection created me perfect.

Any attribute which is in accord with God as He defines Himself is appropriate for use. We are trying today to undo your definition of God and replace it with His Own. We are also trying to emphasize that you are part of His definition of Himself.

After you have gone over several such related thoughts, try to let all thoughts drop away for a brief preparatory interval, and then try to reach past all your images and preconceptions about yourself to the truth in you. If love created you like itself, this Self must be in you. And somewhere in your mind It is there for you to find.

After the getting the above ready, I went for a walk. It is a beautiful winter day in sunny Southern California. However, as I was thinking about the thought of today and the fact that Love created me like itself, everything looked so much better. I noticed some flowers I had not noticed before. Perhaps they just came out over night.

I had a great smile and greeted each person I met on my walk with love.

Then a little miracle happened. The exit gate in the development has been broken since this morning and a truck was waiting not knowing what to do. So I went outside and opened the inbound gate and let the truck out. You may ask why is this a miracle?

Simple, whenever you can serve someone else, whenever you make anyone else happy that’s a miracle and a great part of the miracle is that you become so happy when you serve someone else.

That’s the way God is. Love, loves to give, to serve, to make others happy. So when you are happy God is happy…

I continued walking and again I noticed things that I had not noticed before even though I was walking in an area that I had walked in many many times before. Then I had a small mystical experience. The sky was beautiful with wisps of light clouds over the Ocean. Suddenly for one eternal moment the inside and outside all was one. There was only love, compassion, forgiveness but beyond all love and unity…

  • Forgiveness created me out of forgiveness.
  • Compassion is my source.
  • I’m generous (that’s what my name means) like my creator.
  • Kindness is my source and origin.
  • Unity made me as a unity.

Today is a great day but I just cannot get into the long practice. I have given it two or three attempts. My walking meditation was great and was equivalent to a long practice. So this is it for today. Some days one thing works and on other days something different.

I think the best way to do the workbook exercises is to go with the flow. If something works just go with it and if something does not better luck tomorrow.
