Reading & Pondering Today 8-8

“Obviously, ours is a world where the file of infinite, unconditional love is not downloaded nearly enough. Too often we download the energy of our broken, tortured, frightened selves, manifesting the subtle and not-so-subtle violence in our hearts—hence the consciousness of the human race and the state of the world in which we live.

But even though love can be unchosen, it cannot be uncreated. When any of us expresses fear instead of love, the love we could have expressed remains safely ensconced in the Mind of God. According to A Course in Miracles, whatever miracle we’ve deflected is held in trust for us until we are ready to receive it.

The Atonement allows us to reclaim whatever good we might have denied ourselves. Situations will come around again, returning to us the years that the locusts have eaten.

What the ego steals, God gives back.

Seeing how opportunities reemerge after we have genuinely atoned, we glimpse God’s mercy. “Mercy” is a word that means very little until we have actually felt it. And once we do, we are changed forever. We are in awe of the way the universe rearranges itself to give us yet another chance.”

Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “Tears to Triumph.”
