“I am not asked to make a sacrifice to find the mercy and the peace of God.”
The peace and benevolence that characterizes source is part of you, since you are the doorway through which source flows into extension.
Thinking in terms of sacrifice is indicative of a misunderstanding regarding your true nature. The only thing you give up when you recognize and embrace peace is struggle, strife and limitation.
The key is to know who you really are, to understand and live your true nature as emissary of all that is good and lovely. Everything else is a misunderstanding waiting for you to be shone away by your presence.
