Delay of joy is needless
Be willing to judge the ego’s thought system with perfect honesty.

All attack is self-attack. (A Course in Miracles)

If you attack, you must have forgotten what you are. You are actively choosing not to remember truth, which brings fear. So you attack as a reaction to fear. But fear is nothing more than a call back to truth. You respond as though reality is fearful only if you continue to disassociate from truth.

To experience the end of fear, the end of unnecessary pain and suffering, and the experience of joy, you need only remember the truth about what you are. What you are cannot attack and cannot cause harm in any form.

You are love and need only set yourself free to be what you are.

You can easily be love in all you do. You can effortlessly love everyone, starting with yourself. You need only make the decision for love.

Before you can decide for love, you need only remember what it is. Love is not something handed out to you by some beautiful woman or man. Love is within. There is enough love within you to love yourself completely, to extend it to your partner, to your children, and to everyone you know. There’s even enough love left over inside you that you can create in love – whether art, music, writing, building something, inventing something, cooking, whatever it may be. Love is the energy of creation. What is created from love will be successful.

Now that you have decided for love and know what it is, the next step is to forgive yourself and to accept yourself. This requires time alone. Alone, you remember that there’s nothing wrong with you, that even the things you’ve done in the past are not you. You remember that all the stories about your life which are not related to love are untrue. Only love is true, so let the rest go.

You don’t need someone else to love you, you need to love you. When you start to feel okay, fulfilled by the love flowing from within, then you will slowly be able to extend it to the world. Everything you do will remind others about the truth of love. Let everything that is not love be. Leave alone what is meaningless. It doesn’t matter. What matters is what you are: perfect love.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
