“I am the holy Son of God Himself.”
Today’s lesson closes by referring to the above statement, saying: “Remember this, and all the world is free. Remember this, and earth and Heaven are one.” (W-pI.191.11:5,6)
Is it that easy? Is salvation from distress and worry only that small a step away? Yes, it is. The world is as you will have it, for the world is an effect: It reflects back to you what you hold active within.
What is active within? Those things that you feel are important, that matter to you – why else would you focus on them? So, get more clarity about what you truly feel is important and follow through by no longer focusing on things that do not qualify as important to you in favor of focusing on things that do. And when worry or despair beset you, simply know that they are old tapes that have been with you for too long. You have grown weary of them. Now you know that the door to joy and freedom is within and you are holding the handle. The handle is your ability to decide to focus your attention on that which truly matters to you.
From today’s first paragraph we quote the following: “You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailer to the Son of God.” (W-pI.191.1:2,3) The world is the effect of your decisions. Decide that it be innocent and lovely, and look for proof of that and only that. Innocent and lovely is who and what you are, and living from that place is the most joyous and playful way of being imaginable.
