“I share God’s Will for happiness for me.”
You do not want to suffer.You may think it buys you something, and
may still believe a little that it buys you what you want.Yet this belief
is surely shaken now, at least enough to let you question it, and to
suspect it really makes no sense. It has not gone as yet, but lacks the
roots that once secured it tightly to the dark and hidden secret places
of your mind.
Today we try to loose its weakened hold still further. And to
realize that pain is purposeless, without a cause, and with no power
to accomplish anything. It cannot purchase anything at all. It offers
nothing, and does not exist.And everything you think it offers you is
lacking in existence like itself.You have been slave to nothing. Be you
free today to join the happy Will of God.
For several days we will continue to devote our longer practice
periods to exercises planned to help you reach the happiness God’s
Will has placed in you. Here is your home, and here your safety is.
Here is your peace, and here there is no fear. Here is salvation. Here
is rest at last.
Begin the longer practice periods with this acceptance of God’s
Will for you:
“I share God’s Will for happiness for me,
And I accept it as my function now.”
Then seek this function deep within your mind, for it is there,
awaiting but your choice.You cannot fail to find it when you learn it
is your choice, and that you share God’s Will.
Be happy, for your only function here is happiness.You have no
need to be less loving to God’s Son than He Whose Love created him
as loving as Himself. Besides these hourly five minute rests, pause
frequently today to tell yourself that you have now accepted
happiness as your one function.And be sure that you are joining with
God’s Will in doing this.
