The Fellowship of Awakening November 23, 2016
Father, my freedom is in You alone.
I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me, and the way to You is opening and clear to me at last. Father, my freedom is in You alone. Father, it is my will that I return.

Explanations of Images: We are learning to see past the fear in our lives. Fear appears like a fog over our path, and sometimes there are others encouraging us to agree the fog is powerful and real. The truth is that when we share in this illusion we only make the fog thicker. The answer to fear is to reach out to others, not retreat into our fears. When we reach out to others we actually find them reaching back to us. We were letting others frighten us, but seeing past the fog we reach out and connect with what is real: our oneness, wholeness and safety. Our error is seeing others as fundamentally different than ourselves. There is nothing at all between us, no space, no time, no difference. Believing in difference is how we get sick. Acting on our wholeness supports our health. We walk forward toward our greatest good always before us.
