THE ALTAR OF PEACE

“For perfect effectiveness the Atonement belongs at the center of the inner altar, where it undoes the separation and restores the wholeness of the mind. The children of God are entitled to the perfect comfort that comes from perfect trust. The Atonement is the only gift that is worthy of being offered at the altar of God, because of the value of the altar itself.” A Course In Miracles

“I will kneel at my inner Altar and place my trust in God today.”

As we kneel before the Altar of Peace, Love encircles us like a ring of light protecting us from all that seems to want to harm us. We cannot be but safe here when we understand our safety is governed by God’s laws not ego’s. And now we fall to our knees before the Altar of Peace that stands like a beacon of hope before us and assures us we are entitled to miracles and healing and Oneness.

The altar isn’t made of wood or metal or anything physical. Instead it is Light and Love and comes from within us and shines outward. We can bow our heads or not, lift our faces upward or close our eyes and kneel or not and still see this Altar of Peace. We can just be where we are and as we are for the Altar of Peace is seen not through our bodies’ eyes, but through our inner eye which is always open and ready to see the truth. The truth is that God Is, and nothing else exists.

Our smile transforms our faces as joy fills us and lifts us reminding us of Who and What we are. We are God’s Creations, not in body form, but in spirit which has no form. In God’s image not in ours. And now we can see that we are Spirit Creations having a human experience and not the other way around.

As our Spirit Love governs our existence and our human experience and gains strength and power through practice our experience is transformed from one of fear and victimhood to one of forgiveness and love through acts and words of kindness and compassion. Kindness and compassion for ourselves as well as for all others in our lives.

Instead of hearing and reacting to sadness and anger and fear in ourselves and others by responding in kind, we understand that fear and anger and sadness are simply calls for love and cries for help. As we kneel at the Altar of Peace, we are shown that we as humans are asking for and desperately wanting help to see ourselves as God sees us, but not sure how to make that happen.  

The only way to make it happen is to let it go. Lift it all up to God, and simply let it go. “I place the past, the present and the future in the hands of God.” And now the Altar of God within us shines forth as a stream of glorious and never ending Light and we see nothing else.
