I am one Self, united with my Creator.
We have but one function in Creation: to remember what we are in truth. This remembrance is for all, and so naturally extends throughout Creation. This is the good news: we are not separate from our Creator and therefore not alien unto Creation.
We can be happy. We can be at peace.
You are one Self, in perfect harmony with all there is, and that there will be . . . Feel this one Self in you, and let It shine away all your illusions and your doubts (W-pI.95.1: 1, 3).
What we are in truth is One with both Creator and Creation: to know God is to know our Self, and to know our Self is know our brother and sister. This is the truth in us, and remembrance of it dispels all doubt and confusion, all sorrow and distress, all guilt, fear and anger.
To remember what we are in truth is not an affirmation of the separated self, with its personal story, its memories and dreams, its hopes for life and fears of death. Rather, it is an affirmation of the Self beyond ego and separation, and thus evokes all the separated ones. It is a shared dream of separation.
Be vigilant . . . Repeat today’s idea as frequently as possible, and understand that each time you do, someone hears the voice of hope, the stirring of truth within their mind, the gentle rustling of the wings of peace (W-pI.95.14: 5, 8).
“I am one Self” (W-pI.95.11:4). We are one Self.
To the separated mind which believes in distinctions, and values based on distinctions, and in choosing between distinctions in an attempt to become happy and free, this is idealistic at best and insane at worst.
Our goal is to make contact with the idea not at the level of analysis, but the level of experience. It’s less about what it means and more about how it feels to consider it. Lesson 95 states the simple truth about us. Why won’t we accept it? What have we placed before it?
A Course in Miracles is not complicated but it is challenging. Ego does not relinquish its stranglehold easily. Lesson 95 invites a head-on confrontation, an hourly reminder to us in our separated state that we remain as God created us, wholly united and entirely one.
Thus, our work is simply to show up and be open to the dawning of the only memory that matters: our oneness in and with Creation. We are simply willing to perceive a new way, and our willingness becomes the means by which the new – which is the familiar, the only – is given to us again.
