Lesson 255 – This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

A thought has come into my mind more strongly than ever before these past few months: it is easy to recognize the true Self and see through the illusion.  It is easy to know “myself” as Formless Love and not be fooled by the body.  It is easy to experience a shift in perception and see the world a holy new way.  This change of mind, this Wholesome thought is a bit ahead of my experience, just as lightning signals thunder.  This day is chosen to spend in perfect peace because that is What Already Is.  It is the logical outcome of yesterday’s lesson: Let every voice but God’s be still in me.  And the only reason is the Voice of Reason, the only reality is God’s Reality.  This is what God chooses for “me” today, and “I” accept!


This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.

It does not seem to me that I can choose to have but peace today.  And yet, my God assures me that His Son is like Himself.  Let me this day have faith in Him Who says I am God’s Son.  And let the peace I choose be mine today bear witness to the truth of what He says.  God’s Son can have no cares, and must remain forever in the peace of Heaven.  In His Name, I give today to finding what my Father wills for me, accepting it as mine, and giving it to all my Father’s Sons, along with me.

And so, my Father, would I pass this day with You.  Your Son has not forgotten You.  The peace You gave him still is in his mind, and it is there I choose to spend today.
