wilderness path

a significant inner journey

 

"There is nothing but this peace of God that is shining in me now,

and only peace belongs to Him;

not to man nor man’s ides of peace,

not to the clergy,

not to the politician,

not to the educator,

not to anyone."

“The peace of God is shining in me now.”

 

     Today as I begin the continued study of this Lesson, it strikes me very affirmatively that no matter what I think about anything, no matter what is the experience, no matter what difficulty I perceive, no matter what the outcome, this fact, this truth never changes. I think I change. I think I can change. I think ‘things’ can change. But this truth never changes. The peace of God is shining in me now. A deeper, significant meaning is gleaned through the Energy behind the words of this Lesson today. Its impact is immense, beyond what small words can ever describe in meaningful terms.

 

     Regardless of what I do, of what I think of others or myself, of what I think of my duties in time and space and man’s self-defined idiotic world, this single fact remains unchanged; the peace of God is shining in me now. You whose eyes receive this message may catch a glimpse of the immensity of this truth in your contact with it today.

 

     The peace of God is shining in me now. I call forth and claim only this fact is truth today and all the days of my life on this plane.

 

     BY this peace do all things live. BY this peace do all things move. BY this peace are all things able to be. The peace of God is the vibration that holds all things together in its web. It is what contains all things within itself.

 

     The peace of God is order that shines in me now and shines away all ideas of disorder. Disorder is only when I think I belong somewhere else at this very moment, doing something else, or wishing I were someplace else doing something else. But even if I were, the peace of God is shining in me now is there with me.

 

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.

 

 

 

 

 

THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE IT CAN BE.

 

     There is nothing but this peace of God that is shining in me now, and only peace belongs to Him; not to man nor man’s ides of peace, not to the clergy, not to the politician, not to the educator, not to anyone. It is His Peace and ONLY His. And it cannot be stolen from the Heavens to be perverted or used for man’s small ways. It shines AWAY man’s small ways. It shines away man’s retarded world. It shines away ‘man’.

 

     I cannot escape it. It dissolves everything. It dissolves Styrofoam, instantly. Acid cannot exist without it. It absorbs everything and everything is absorbed in it. It washes away all things, like a great tsunami, whether I am prepared or not. It does not promote preparation. It is the ending of preparation. It ends preparations because it is forever present.

 

     It is the only reality. Nothing can exist except the peace of God. It may be self-defined, unseen, unrecognized, ignored, unnoticed, mocked, made out to be a pretense, a cliché, a catch phrase, a buzz word, a bumper sticker, a tee shirt, a coffee mug, and never experienced or expressed. And yet it is all there is.

 

     The universe is contained in it and by it. The universe of universes is made possible by it. If it is in me then I am in it. I cannot be separated from it. It can never be absent from my life. I cannot terminate it. I cannot eliminate it. It can never be absent from my life. It IS life.

 

     If every encounter I experience on the earth plane is met with the peace of God that is shining in me now, I would never have to think about anything else. It dissolves thinking. It dissolves all forms. It eliminates time. It ends effort. Here is nothing in my earthly journey that the peace of God cannot do.

 

     It is the answer to anything I perceive. I need do nothing. I move in it. It moves in me and it moves me. It is movement in me. The stillness of the universe is its effect. The planets float in space and hold their positions by it. Stars beyond the count of numbers are embraced in and by it. Every planet is held within its position by the peace of God that is shining in me now. Every seen and unseen universe cannot be apart from or outside of the peace of God that is shining in me now.

 

     In fact, the peace of God is shining in me now IS the function of all things, seen and unseen. There IS no other function, no other path, and no other duty. The peace of God is shining in me now and DEFINES everything I will do here, every step I take, and every breath I receive.

 

     As I look in hindsight upon everything I have ever dreamed or experienced, I realize it is the peace of God that is shining in me now that provided all these, and into infinity will it provide. It allows me TO see in hindsight, and hindsight becomes foresight for everything I will ever encounter and experience.

 

     Then, when I ask what will You have me do this day, where will You have me go, what will You have me say and to whom, and as I ask You to decide for me for my life, the Answer must be only that the peace of God is shining in me now. I realize only this and the small “I” is no more. And the grandeur of the Higher Self does everything for the being whose human costume once was thought to be a burden.

 

     The peace of God is shining in me now is the Universal Hymn of Eternal Life, and now is the message, the experience, the demonstration that the human costume displays. For it is how the peace of God is shining in me now has come to reveal Its reality.

 

     What will You have me do? Be the peace of God that is shining in me now.

     Where will You have me go? Go to the peace of God that is shining in me now.

     What will you have me say and to whom? Say to yourself and to everyone and every mind that the peace of God is shining in me now.

 

     Know the truth of the peace of God that is shining in me now, and your Karmic Debt is paid.

 

     So be it now.

     “It is done.”
