Lesson for November 9th, 2016
I seek a future different from the past.
From new perception of the world there comes a future very different from the past. The future now is recognized as but extension of the present. Past mistakes can cast no shadows on it, so that fear has lost its idols and its images, and being formless, it has no effects. Death will not claim the future now, for life is now its goal, and all the needed means are happily provided. Who can grieve or suffer when the present has been freed, extending its security and peace into a quiet future filled with joy?

Don’t accept the injury offered you. Don’t show your brother that he determines what you do or what you say. Reach back to and help him. He has injured himself and needs your knowledge of his innocence and holiness. We’ll help clean up together this battlefield we’ve found ourselves upon. We are learning to do better and to include and see each other, to share our lives and goals together. They are not different. The path to greater freedom is together. When we reach back and accept no ability of our enemies to injure us we rise together like a fiery Phoenix into the sky cleansing and renewing the earth and the hope of renewal. We will only only create the world we know is possible together hand in hand.
