“The Course is Simple”
It feels so reassuring to read this. It especially goes along with my Theme for 2017 – Simplify Everything.

“The reason why this course is simple, is that truth is simple. Complexity is of the ego, and is nothing more than the ego’s attempt to obscure the obvious. …The holy instant is a time in which you receive and give perfect communication. This means, however, that it is a time in which your mind is open, both to receive and give. It is the recognition that all minds are in communication. It therefore seeks to change nothing, but merely to accept everything.”
“Every thought you would keep hidden shuts communication off, because you would have it so.”
“The necessary condition for the holy instant does not require that you have no thoughts that are not pure. But it does require that you have none that you would keep. Innocence is not of your making. It is given you the instant you would have it. Atonement would not be if there were no need for it. You will not be able to accept perfect communication as long as you would hide it from yourself. For what you would hide is hidden. In your practice, then, try only to be vigilant against deception, and seek not to protect the thoughts you would keep to yourself. Let the Holy Spirit’s purity shine them away, and bring all your awareness to the readiness for purity He offers you. Thus will He make you ready to acknowledge that you are host to God, and hostage to no one and to nothing.” (T-15.IV.6:1-2,5-8;8:1;9:1-10)
The Holy Spirit is always there in our minds to help us undo our belief in separation. Belief in separation is the barrier that denies we are one with our Father.
As we are willing to forgive, or let go of the false belief in separation from our Father, we see that every brother is one with us in truth. We see that all differences are inherently false. We see that we are perfect Love and nothing else.
We are gently being freed from all thoughts of littleness and differences as we let the Holy Spirit shine away these false thoughts minute by minute, day by day. In truth every brother is host to God as we are. In truth we are one Light and we have one Life, the Life we live in God. All this comes with opening to Holy Spirit’s healing Light.
This is our practice for today.
