Lesson for November 9th, 2016

Lesson 314

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?

Father, we were mistaken in the past, and choose to use the present to be free. Now do we leave the future in Your Hands, leaving behind our past mistakes, and sure that You will keep Your present promises, and guide the future in their holy light.
Chapter 27 is called 'The Healing of the Dream' for a reason. We still have work to do on our perception of what is in order to be useful. We're going to look at Section II tonight. The Fear of Healing. It's a real thing. Who would we be without the struggle and the need to blame others? ​We are only ever looking at ourselves, as we know. So the healing, our correction, is going to happen as a choice we make about ourselves and the nature of the world we live in. We must not lash back at those that are hurling barbs. Illusions don't effect us because we know the truth. All are innocent and all are holy. When others hurt we offer our help because we know we are whole and complete and some else's believe in their injury and hurt doesn't stop us from returning fear with love and the knowledge of our connection.

Explanation of Images: We can be hurt by the decisions of others, as we can hurt others with the decisions we have made. 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.
