WE CANNOT WALK ALONE

“You do not walk alone. God’s angels hover near and all about. His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure; that He will never leave you comfortless.” A Course In Miracles.

“I will see myself comforted and surrounded by God’s Love today.”

When we look at the world, what do we see? All the pain, and suffering? Or the truth, that God is real and everything and everyone can be lifted into His Light for healing? Do we join the world in its misery by adding our negative energy of fear and judgment to the chaos? Or can we choose a better way?

What if we join forces with God by sending kind and loving thoughts into the world every chance we get? What if we lay our fears down and pray, “God help us.” What if we go about our day dispensing kindness and compassion to everyone we meet? What if we become part of the solution by smiling gently at anyone who needs a smile and offering a happy greeting to friends and strangers alike? What if we are part of the solution, by choosing to withhold judgment of what we see and hear on the news and instead send a healing prayer to everyone involved?

Love is energy that heals. Fear is energy that keeps the world in darkness. We have the capacity for both. We can get angry and righteous and choose to make the world the problem of those we see as guilty. Or we can take responsibility for our part in the mess by remembering our anger and our fear are just as powerful for keeping the world in pain as those who are actually acting out the drama and the violence. We may not want to believe that our thoughts are that powerful. After all we’re not doing anything to hurt anyone. But when we consider that we are creations of the greatest Power of all, is it too farfetched to believe that we are contributing to the chaos by keeping our thoughts in chaos? In a lesser way, perhaps, but contributors nonetheless. And there are billions of us joining forces in judgment and in fear.

The answer is forgiveness. We must, one person at a time, forgive ourselves for our mistakes and ask God to heal us so we can be instruments of peace instead of pain. It seems almost impossible to withhold our judgments and be free of ego fear. The natural thing seems to be to judge the world and to believe we know what everyone else should be doing differently. This desire to rule through our egos instead of allowing God’s Love in is very powerful and entrenched into our way of thinking and being in the world.

And so we cannot do it alone. God is always with us to help us change our thoughts whenever we open our mind and heart and turn to Him. For every fear thought there is a corresponding Love thought. We must be vigilant in watching how we react and respond to the world and those in our lives. And every time we find ourselves responding with negativity, we can stop ourselves even in mid sentence or mid thought and go somewhere quiet and say, “God, I give my mistaken thoughts to you. Please help me to be your channel and your tool for healing in the world.” Or “God, please help me to see this through Your Eyes so I can change my mind.”

Working through Love instead of fear is not easy. But it’s necessary if we really want a better world. Sometimes, we can only pray, “God help me.” And yet that is the most powerful prayer there is.

We are not alone. Powerful Guides walk with us. Let’s take Their hands and allow ourselves to be lifted above the fray where we can truly be a healer for God in the world. And when we find ourselves in the middle of the mess again, which we will, let’s take God’s hand again. And then again. And then again. Every experience and every moment is another opportunity to choose again. And to remember the powerful truth – that we are not alone. God and His Angels walk with us and His will for us is only peace and happiness and nothing else. When we turn to God for help we are simply aligning our will with His. And there is nothing more powerful that we can do for the healing of the world.
