“There is no other love that can satisfy you, because there is no other love.”

There is only the love of God. I fool myself if I believe I can find substitutes for love here in the world. I’ve done it and it does not work.

Specialness is prevalent in all of our relationships. We blame, we feel guilty, we project and we are full of fear. Yet, rarely do we take responsibility for how we feel. We project it forth on to others and make them the enemy, the cause of our problems.

We do this to protect ourselves. We escape and hide from others who we consider as our victimizers. Yet, who is the victim and who is the victimizer? As Jesus says, “Would I accuse myself of this?” We accuse everyone but ourselves as we place the mask of innocence upon our face.

Our anger will not be alleviated by the projection of guilt. The guilt can be subtle or it can be complete rage. We turn our back on someone, we cease communication, but the projection is still there. We involve ourselves in other activities to keep the feelings at bay. Until the next person triggers the pain of guilt and the projection and isolation begins again.

It’s all the ego’s game. We have to ask ourselves, “Am I ready to give this up? Am I going to continue this intellectual foray or practice the wisdom that Jesus sets forth?”

It’s time to practice. It’s time to forgive. It’s time to communicate. It’s time to join in the light.

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.
