The Fellowship of Awakening- August 28, 2013

Teachers of God,

Today, we finished the second room in the home we're building. We have the entry way of forgiveness completed (Forgiveness Foyer?). We now have the first of the 12 Halls completed: The Hall of Salvation. Each Hall has 10 Pillars. When they are built we'll go to the Upper Room which has 10 Jewels and then place the roof over our heads.

10 Pillars of the Hall of Salvation:

Father, I will but to remember You.

Be in my mind, my Father, through the day.

I give my life to God to guide today.

Father, today I am Your Son again.

God in His mercy wills that I be saved.

I rule my mind, which I alone must rule.

Now would I be as God created me.

On my decision all salvation rests.

The glory of my Father is my own.

Fear is not justified in any form.

These lessons are quite poignant. I love synchronicity, don't you? We're going to be talking about Chapter 21: Reason and Perception, specifically the section called The Responsibility for Sight. What does sight have to do with anything? It has everything thing to do with what we experience here with our senses. We see what we want to see. If we believe that the world hates us, then that's what we see. If we operate from the truth then we have a shot at seeing what is really there. Be in my mind, my Creator, through the day. I give my life to you to guide today because I rule my mind. I am the only one that is condemning me. I am glorious, there is nothing to fear. Fear is never justified in any form. That's what we'll be talking about. What is this pivot point we're moving around? Moving through forgiveness we experience salvation. That feeling that everything's okay. I know what is mine to do. I have enough, in fact, I have enough to give away. My creator is with me, as She's with you. We're glorious, turns out. Let's play. The more I take responsibility for my life the greater my capacity to play and experience joy.

Explanation of Images:

Altars can be used to celebrate or to sacrifice. We each have an altar in our heart where we make decisions about our lives and who we are. The Course asks us to give our decisions making over to the care of Holy Spirit. When we do the Holy Spirit helps us to create with God the world we can enjoy. Otherwise we’ll create out of lack and seek confirmation of our error thoughts.
