I rest in God.
As you say these words to yourself in a restful state know that this thought will bring you the rest and quiet, peace and Stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. Completely under the thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem which it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.
This is a day of peace. Rest in God.
This lesson is especially meaningful for me today. One of my dearest relatives is transitioning out of his body and rejoining with the spirit world. As I take the time today to rest and feel the peace and stillness that he must be feeling right now it is incredibly comforting. Knowing now even more ever, that someone never leaves us makes me question why my eyes fill with tears when I think of him no longer being physically present here. I know my tears are of sadness when they should be a joy in his transitioning. His transitioning is the end of an error of my great aunt and uncle’s being here. They are the group of people I grew up with on weekends and holidays and special occasions. No my life is absolutely wonderful at this time with family and friends resting in this Stillness will hopefully give me more insight to why I mourn his loss when I know he never truly leaves.
To give and to receive are one in truth.
To give is to receive. In today’s practice close your eyes and offer peace to everyone you can think of and see how quickly it returns to you. Begin by saying to give and to receive our one in truth. I will receive what I am giving now. Then say to yourself to everyone I offer quietness. To everyone I offer peace of mind. To everyone I offer gentleness. To everyone I offer happiness. And continue on the list pausing after each thing you say and feeling it returned to you.
Truth will correct the errors in my mind.
Errors are but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are. But once they are gone they are gone and only truth will remain. And that truth is a gift of healing that needs no defense and therefore needs no attack. This brings about pure peace and joy. Take a moment and imagine a time when you felt pure peace in which you were loved and safe. This could be yours once you allow God to speak the truth through you and then you in return take that truth to the rest of the world and carry out God’s gifts to everyone. You will speak for all the world when you believe that truth will correct all errors in your mind.
You speak to him today and make your pledge to let his function be fulfilled through you. To share his function is to share his Joy. His confidence is with you as you say
(Truth will correct all errors in my mind and I will rest in him who is myself.)
Then let him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar World reluctantly, but willingly to continue to spread the word for God.
Let me be still and listen to the truth.
Lay aside your ego and hear the mighty voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in its messages. Do not be persuaded by the voices of the world. Only God will speak the truth to you. Then you in turn will speak his truth to others so they, too, will know the truth of where happiness lies. Receive yoir miracles and they will echp throughout the world. Thus does salvation begin.
I will be still and listen to the truth. What does it mean to give and to receive?
Today, receive the word of God so you can give it away.
Let me be still and listen to the truth. I am the messenger of God today. My voice is His, to give what I receive,
God’s peace and joy are mine.
God’s peace and joy are our gifts from God. They are gifts that offer a more valuablw return. True giving is creation. Time becomes eternity, limitless becomes unlimited, and love never ending when we accept God’s gifts of peace and joy.
Begin this practice period by thinking of anyone you hold contentment against. Offer them God’s love and peace for holding resentment blocks the path of love and peace to you.
Once you have truly offered this love and peace up, then you are open to take it in. Say to yourseld throughout the day and spend some quiet meditation time saying:
God’s peace and joy are mine
I seek but what belongs to me in truth, and joy and peace are my inheritance. God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.
In order to receive this I must clear my mind of all perceived objects of happiness and then God can have the space to fill me with joy and peace. Today we would remove all meaningless and self-made gifts, idols, and goals to achieve in order to be happy. God’s gifts were inherited to us before time was and will always be ours even when time passes into eternity. Therefore, we can have joy and peace right now. It is God’s will.
This is so valuable to me right now as I’m under a bit of stress. I must continually remind myself of the insignificance of my stressor in grand scheme of life. God wants me to be happy, not stressed. I am putting this on myself, and therefore; I can take it away. I’m not saying this is easy, but I have found the benefit of the stressor is more awareness of where I carry my stress. Now, I know more areas of my body that I need to find peace in.
I seek but what belongs to me in truth. God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.
God being loved is also happiness. Today fear him is to be afraid of joy. God being loved is also happiness and it is happiness I think today. I cannot fail because I seek the truth.
God is not meant to be feared. God’s presence in our life is to bring us joy and show us love not fear or shame or guilt. To be afraid of God is to say you are afraid of love and joy. Therefore if you believe in God you also believe in happiness and you can find happiness. Happiness belongs to you because it is God’s will for you.
I share Godd2will for happiness for me, and I accept it as my function now.
I gain nothing by suffering and God does not want me to suffer or hurt. It is his plan for me to be happy. Pain is purposeless. I can be happy and get The things my heart desires as well.
Example: I could feel overwhelmed with housework and then get ready mad at my husband for wanting to go out biking when there is so much work to do. But how would that make things better? Instead, I could just say that I need help with the house work or I could just let go of the pressure I place on my self to keep the house clean. Either way, I’ll be a lot happier.
So, I share God’s will for happiness for me and accept it as my function.
God’s will for me is perfect happiness.
All that you believe must come from sin will never happen for it has no cause. Accept atonement with an open mind which cherishes no lingering belief that you have ever sinned and should be punished for crucifying God’s son.
Fear not the will of God.
God’s will for me is perfect happiness. There is no sin; it has no consequence.
This is the truth because there is no sin.
For a long time I held a lot of guilt for things that had happened in the past. As I have come to realize this feeling of guilt has not done me any good nor does it serve the purpose to continue. It has been so freeing to let go of this. Anxiety of the what ifs have disappeared almost completely and worry of the past doesn’t haunt me. I am in the present and have forgiven the past. God wants us to be happy. End of story.
You are indeed essential to God’s plan. God’s will for you is perfect happiness. Your joy must be complete to let his plan be understood by those to whom he sends you. Without your joy, his Joy is incomplete. We will not let ourselves be sad today. If we do, we fail to take the part that is essential to God’s plan as well as to our vision.
Joy is our function here. Our next lesson is to understand that we are God’s Messengers. We bring God Joy with our joy and our joy brings joy to other people.
Therefore, my part is essential to God’s plan for salvation.
Repeat this several times throughout the day. Find joy and spread it around as that is you’re only function and salvation.
