“I am in need of nothing but the truth.”

After working with the lesson I quieted my mind and asked Spirit for more insight about this lesson. This is what I received:

The truth will set you free. The truth will bring you peace. The truth is all there is. Dreams just appear to be real. You do not need to buy into them. Buying into dreams of separation from your true Identity brings with it anxiety, guilt and fear. This need not be. The truth is true and nothing else is true. You can learn to open to the truth and let its healing Light transform all the false ideas in your mind.

Let the Holy Spirit melt away what is not true. Let the Holy Spirit be in your mind so that you are able to realize what is true and what is not true. In madness, fear seems very real indeed. When you open to the Light of truth, you see that all that you feared was really nothing. You see that you are eternally safe in the Mind of Love. You see that you are united with all your brothers in that one indivisible Love. In truth you feel safe. In truth you know that you never left Home. In truth you are at peace eternally.

Dear God, I open to the truth now, that all my fears would be removed. I open to Your peace. I open to Love’s happiness. Today I practice accepting Reality.


The truth tells me I have nothing to fear. There is nothing outside me. There is no “other,” different from me that could bring me any harm. Since there is only the one Creation of God, harm is impossible. The world of destruction, decay and death that the body shows me cannot be part of the oneness of truth. Truth cannot change. Anything that I perceive that appears to change cannot be real.

Change is a signal, a symptom of unreality. All fear is based on the belief that change is possible and so all fear is based on unreality. This is my release from the bondage of belief that separation could be real.

To walk to freedom I need to take every thought of change, every thought of loss or lack, every thought of harm to the Holy Spirit. I need to open my mind to His Light to receive His vision that shows me what is real and what is unreal. He will teach me with love and kindness that I remain the holy Son of God, as I was created. He will teach me that all my brothers are that same Self, the holy Son of God. He looks upon everyone with complete equality. As I learn to see as He sees, I will know the Love that I am as I see it in my brothers.

Guide my thoughts today, Holy Spirit, that I may see the innocence that is the truth of all my brothers and my Self. Truth is everything I need.
