Truth will correct all errors in my mind

I do not like the term God as often it is used for the vengeful unloving idol “religious” people have created to reflect their vengeful unloving egos. I prefer the term Ultimate Reality or the One. Such terms have not been abused for thousands of years and do not judge the Divine. Even when I was an atheist (I rejected the gods of organized religions not that of the mystics) I could never deny the existence of an Ultimate Reality…

In the New Testament is written that the truth will set you free. In Islam God has various names or attributes such as the Compassionate, the Merciful. One of my favorite terms for God is Al Haque – the Truth.

God cannot be anything but the Truth, the Ultimate Reality, or the One. The Truth is. Does not judge. Can only enlighten. The Truth loves and brings peace.

From ACIM workbook for today:

What can correct illusions but the truth? And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered errors disappear. They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because, without belief, they have no life. And so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time,–perhaps a minute, maybe even less–when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe. Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times, and then be multiplied another hundred more…

When truth has come it harbors in its wings the gift of perfect constancy, and love which does not falter in the face of pain, but looks beyond it, steadily and sure. Here is the gift of healing, for the truth needs no defense, and therefore no attack is possible. Illusions can be brought to truth to be corrected. But the truth stands far beyond illusions, and can not be brought to them to turn them into truth…

Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth. The shaky and unsteady footsteps of illusion are not our approach today. We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today, and count on it to enter into all the exercises that we do this day.

Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him. You are not made of flesh and blood and bone, but were created by the selfsame Thought which gave the gift of life to Him as well. He is your Brother, and so like to you your Father knows that You are both the same. It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are?

Truth will correct all errors in your mind which tell you you could be apart from Him. You speak to Him today, and make your pledge to let His function be fulfilled through you. To share His function is to share His joy. His confidence is with you, as you say:

Truth will correct all errors in my mind,
And I will rest in Him Who is my Self.

Then let Him lead you gently to the truth, which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar world reluctantly.

And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world. For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world. They will increase with every gift you give of five small minutes, and the errors that surround the world will be corrected as you let them be corrected in your mind.

Do not forget your function for today. Each time you tell yourself with confidence, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” you speak for all the world and Him Who would release the world, as He would set you free.

Today is a beautiful peaceful loving day. Once we understand (gut understanding) that the Truth is the source of all beauty, peace, compassion and love, we can face anything and project the truth to the outer world in stead of projecting the fears, and doubts of the ego.

All day whenever I had some free time I read the thought for the day, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” and I felt great peace and all was well and I sent unconditional love to all.

I suppose in the same way as God is love, truth is love.
