The Fellowship of Awakening December 23, 2015
Greetings Teachers of God,
We've almost made it another year! These last dozen or so lessons are actually some of the ones that I carry with me all through the year. They are a real touchstone to what ACIM and my mission and passion are all about. Lesson 360 really says it well:
Peace be to me, the holy Son of God.
Peace to my brother, who is one with me.
Let all the world be blessed with peace through us
We're on the first half of Chapter 31. It's called The Final Vision. We're wrapping up what we've learned and attempting to apply it to all we do. We're talking about the tendency to rely on the world to reward us and give us direction. We must get in the habit of looking within and creating those touchstones of truth that are reliable. Otherwise we're going to be trying something new all the time and never going deep. We keep going in circles, trying this way, that way etc. Find what works for you and keep doing it. The Course knows that the road home is the road within. Find that burning star within you and follow it home.
A Course in Miracles

Explanation of Images: We look within to let us know where to go and what what to say and what do do, etc. We keep following the inner light that leads us home. And in this way we are all exactly alike. Everyone is attempting to do this. But we get into comparison traps and are tempted away from our place in the mind of God. We think we must listen to world tell us that we’re on the wrong path, we don’t know how to do it, we’ll never be happy just being ourselves etc. We are tempted to keep taking another road, then another, then another. Look within. The road there lead home. The roads of the world lead us in circles.
