Lesson 256 – God is the only goal I have today.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Simple and clear: God is the only goal I have today.  His sacred Word is the only Word to listen to and hear. Forgiveness asks that we pay attention to what is real.  Now dreaming is used for awakening, moment by moment, until there is no dream to awaken from.  Bull’s eye.


God is the only goal I have today.

The way to God is through forgiveness here.  There is no other way.  If sin had not been cherished by the mind, what need would there have been to find the way to where you are?  Who would still be uncertain?  Who could be unsure of who he is?  And who would yet remain asleep, in heavy clouds of doubt about the holiness of him whom God created sinless?  Here we can but dream.  But we can dream we have forgiven him in whom all sin remains impossible, and it is this we choose to dream today.  God is our goal; forgiveness is the means by which our minds return to Him at last.

And so, our Father, would we come to You in Your appointed way.  We have no goal except to hear Your Voice, and find the way Your sacred Word has pointed out to us.
