Lesson for October 12th, 2016
The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.
Father, how still today! How quietly do all things fall in place! This is the day that has been chosen as the time in which I come to understand the lesson that there is no need that I do anything. In You is every choice already made. In You has every conflict been resolved. In You is everything I hope to find already given me. Your peace is mine. My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest. Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.

Explanation of Images: It’s not difficult to be ourselves, though we often make it difficult. No one can tell us how to be who we are. Who we believe we are colors the way we see others in the world we live in. We have confirmation bias of our own beliefs. We see our strengths and faults in others. There is something that is just ours to do; we are the Divine in transient form. It requires us to look past the seeming darkness of ignorance to the expression of light we truly are and share that with others. When we live this way we see others this way as well and cooperate in creating the more beautiful world we know is possible. We are creating the world we experience by projecting suffering or participating with creation. We do this with others. We learn and sculpt this world and with our bodies with the bodies of our friends and family. It’s a holy task and we’re excited by what is ours to do. We’re not separate from our tasks or our communities no matter how it looks.
