Chapter 8,  V. The Undivided Will of the Sonship

“Alone we can do nothing but together our minds fuse into something whose power is far beyond the power of its separate parts.”

“On this journey you have chosen me as your companion instead of the ego.”

“I go before you because I am beyond the ego. Reach, therefore, for my hand because you want to transcend the ego.”

Gentle Brother Jesus,

Thank you for taking the journey before me and with me. Your loving words of wisdom fill my mind and when I pay attention I know no fear. Sometimes my hand slips away and I take a side trip with the ego but when I unite with you I rise above the way of fear.

I see this daily, as the moments of fear present themselves. It is always a fork in the road. Which way… will I go with this situation? With what this person says or does? With how I am feeling today?

Reaching for you makes perfect sense. You are the helping hand. You have been through this path before. You are my guide in a foreign land. I would trust a guide here in the world to lead me through the jungles of Africa, wouldn’t I? Yet is this world not a jungle in itself? Why not use the guide that has been provided for me? Who speaks the language?

All makes perfect sense in the moment as I write this.

Let me turn to you brother when I have veered off the path. Your strong hand will lead me through the jungle of fear and doubt and into the certainty of the Land of Milk and Honey of God. Thank you for the unending gifts of your presence.

Amen.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
