A Course in Miracles: Lesson 355

Lesson 355

There is no end to all the peace and joy,

And all the miracles that I will give,

When I accept God’s Word.

Why not today? 

“Why should I wait, my Father, for the joy You promised me?  For You will keep Your Word You gave Your Son in exile.  I am sure my treasure waits for me, and I need but reach out my hand to find it.  Even now my fingers touch it.  It is very close.  I need not wait an instant more to be at peace forever.  It is You I choose, and my Identity along with You.  Your Son would be Himself, and know You as his Father and Creator, and his Love” (ACIM Lesson 355 1:1-8)

Why wait?  Exactly…why?…When peace, love, joy, happiness, and the end to all suffering is within our reach.  It is actually much closer; it is not even a breath away.  It is merely a choice, a shift in perception, a miracle away.  It need not take long.  Thus, why wait?

If we are waiting we must understand that it is our choice to wade around in anything unlike Love.  And it is okay to choose that because all choices are okay, accepted, and granted, for nothing changes your Nature as a perfect Child of God.  You are free to continue playing in illusions for as long as you like.  However, if it is true peace you desire the scale will eventually be tipped and you will shift your choices to that of love.  There is no end to the goodness that awaits you but it must be more enticing to you than the other.

God merely awaits our acceptance.  We do not have to do parlor tricks, jump through hoops, or take part in some spiritual voodoo.  Merely open your heart and accept God’s Word as Truth, as Your Truth.  If it is what you truly desire, it is that simple, because no matter what the world says, or the ego, you will hear only the Voice of God above all else and will walk in the direction She calls, effortlessly.  Today, she whispered to me by the means of a song with the same theme, “Why Not,” by Hillary Duff, a song about taking a chance on a life that “can be so sweet.”  Why not?

Why not
Take a star from the sky
Why not
Spread your wings and fly
It may take a little
Or it might take a lot
But why not
Why not

Exactly…Why not?  Thus, today, turn up the volume on peace and joy.  They dance as infinite notes in the air you breathe.  Why not breathe it in, this Truth, and make it part of You…today!?  Namaste.
