Accepting the Love We Are

We thank our Father for one thing alone; that we are separate from no living thing, and therefore one with Him. And we rejoice that no exceptions ever can be made which would reduce our wholeness, nor impair or change our function to complete the One Who is Himself completion. We give thanks for every living thing, for otherwise we offer thanks for nothing, and we fail to recognize the gifts of God to us.

Walk, then, in gratitude the way of love. For hatred is forgotten when we lay comparisons aside. What more remains as obstacles to peace? The fear of God is now undone at last, and we forgive without comparing. Thus we cannot choose to overlook some things, and yet retain some other things still locked away as “sins.” When your forgiveness is complete you will have total gratitude, for you will see that everything has earned the right to love by being loving, even as your Self.

Our gratitude will pave the way to Him, and shorten our learning time by more than you could ever dream of. Gratitude goes hand in hand with love, and where one is the other must be found. For gratitude is but an aspect of the Love which is the Source of all creation. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 195,W-pI.195.6;8;9:1-3. See also ACIM Lesson 195 Insights.)

The nature of Love is to be grateful. It is a natural effect that comes with the joy of being united in the oneness of Love. There are no differences in Love, no conflict. Nothing to compare because Love never changes. It is always the same all-encompassing Love of God. Love is our Home.

Judgment (unforgiveness) denies the oneness of Love. It makes us unaware of Love’s presence and leaves us feeling lack, sad and fearful. Judgment depends upon the belief in separation because differences depend upon there being separate states or forms.

To return to the full awareness of the Love we are, we must let go of all judgments. Today we call upon the Holy Spirit to replace our judgments with His singular judgment — that only the oneness of Love is real. With His help we will learn to see past the empty images of the world to the one Love that unites us with our Creator. And we will walk in gratitude.
