Guiding Thought

I am ready and willing, here and now, to be courageous. I release my mind’s idea of security, of “right” and of “wrong”. I allow my personality to dissolve and to become One with the Love that Is, everywhere. All false boundaries evaporate like mist in the sun as I devote myself to the Oneness of Love.


Maybe, just maybe things aren’t what I think they are. Maybe, just maybe I’m taking all this courage stuff too seriously. What if courage wasn’t necessary? What if all this transformation, change, and acceptance were fun? Fun does not require courage. Fun just requires having fun! So what if Life were just fun?

Why do I seem to think I need courage to open myself to Love and Oneness? What is that about? I mean, Love and Oneness! Think about that…it’s like saying there is something scary that has to be cautiously approached, yet we’re talking about LOVE and ONENESS…nothing scary there, is there?

This is part of thinking about releasing my mind’s idea of security, “right” and “wrong”.  

But I just remembered…the scary stuff doesn’t come from Love and Oneness; it comes from that part of me that wants to deny its Oneness with Love and Oneness. Why would a part of me want to deny its Oneness? What sense does that make? Suddenly I understand in a new way all the stuff in A Course in Miracles about the ego trying to usurp God and the sunbeam trying to separate itself from the sun… and how insane that is.

If all Love wants for us is itself: Love, why in the world would we try to keep ourselves apart from that? Why would we deny ourselves the Joy of being in LOVE?

The only reason anyone needs courage is because of that denial. The courage is in order to face that part which is still trying to deny the Love that Is, everywhere. So if I just BE in LOVE, the part which denies it no longer exists: it dissolves. Did it ever exist in the first place?

So, yes! If courage is about allowing myself to be more and more in Love, I think so. I want fun and play and love and joy and all of it. Why would I deny myself that? Yes! I accept!
