I seek but what belongs to me in truth

There is a line in the I Ching (The Chinese book of changes) I love which states that if you lose your horse do not search for it. If it is truly yours it will return to you in seven days. In the same way, A Course in Miracles states that it is a required course, the only choice we have is when we take it.

Again I have emphasized that we cannot get away from our true inheritance (we are Gods or children of God). In the words of my compatriot Mullana Jalal-E-Din Rumi, “No matter how great you imagine, you are, you are much greater than that.”

Of course the above statements are not to be understood from the ego’s point of view but from the point of view of consciousness, being, the Self and Ultimate Reality. From such a point of view being God is merely humility, unconditional love, compassion, joy, and happiness.

From ACIM workbook for today:

Today’s idea continues with the thought that joy and peace are not but idle dreams. They are your right, because of what you are. They come to you from God, Who cannot fail to give you what He wills. Yet must there be a place made ready to receive His gifts. They are not welcomed gladly by a mind that has instead received the gifts it made where His belong, as substitutes for them.

Our longer practice periods today, the hourly five minutes given truth for your salvation, should begin with this:

I seek but what belongs to me in truth,
And joy and peace are my inheritance.

Then lay aside the conflicts of the world that offer other gifts and other goals made of illusions, witnessed to by them, and sought for only in a world of dreams.

So do we clear the way for Him today by simply recognizing that His Will is done already, and that joy and peace belong to us as His eternal gifts. We will not let ourselves lose sight of them between the times we come to seek for them where He has laid them. This reminder will we bring to mind as often as we can:

I seek but what belongs to me in truth.
God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.

The day went really well. Again because of the way my work is I cannot do the five minutes an hour but I write the thought for today on a card and read it whenever I have a spare moment. I noticed that I could be more loving and get over little upsets easier.

It is not as though I no longer get upset. It is just that I am more humble and accept whatever happens with joy and have compassion toward all including myself. This made the day much more enjoyable and allowed me to appreciate my inheritance of loving kindness and peace.
