What do I want? What do I want? I can only have one or the other. Light or darkness. Knowledge or ignorance. Why must I stay in the darkness when Light is handed to me freely without strings attached? Here in the world I have sought for truth, yet never found. Jesus suggests that the way to search for truth is to search out those things that stand in the way of truth. Mmm…

What stands in front of truth for me? My thoughts that I hide. Those falsities that I believe. I hide from Love because I fear it. That fear is keeping me from what would set me free.

“Bring what is undesirable to the desirable”

Today Holy Spirit I bring all those miniscule thoughts that I keep hidden. I think they are safely hidden until they arise like the Frankenstein monster clutching for me. I place Love’s face on that monster and say it is Love that is out to get me, to murder me in my path. That is the insanity of the ego. How could Love attack me? God knows only Love. He knows me only as Love. He does not see the “monster” I have created of Him. He placed the Holy Spirit in my mind, a gentle voice to lead me gently.

I need not be afraid for He is here. Joining with Him is the only way I can see differently. I can rise above the conflict in my mind and witness to Love’s Presence.

The Holy Spirit asks of you but this; bring to Him every secret you have locked away from Him. Open every door to Him, and bid Him enter the darkness and lighten it away. At your request He enters gladly. He brings the light to darkness if you make the darkness open to Him. But what you hide He cannot look upon. He sees for you, and unless you look with Him He cannot see. The vision of Christ is not for Him alone, but for Him with you. Bring, therefore, all your dark and secret thoughts to Him, and look upon them with Him. He holds the light, and you the darkness. They cannot coexist when both of You together look on them. His judgment must prevail, and He will give it to you as you join your perception to His.

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.
