LET’S GIVE UP THE FIGHT

“ For you must be as God created you. Truth does not fight against illusions, nor do illusions fight against the truth. Illusions battle only with themselves. Being fragmented, they fragment. But truth is indivisible, and far beyond their [illusion’s] little reach. You will remember what you know when you have learned you cannot be in conflict. One illusion about yourself can battle with another, yet the war of two illusions is a state where nothing happens. There is no victor and there is no victory. And truth stands radiant, apart from conflict, untouched and quiet in the peace of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will gladly wave the white flag of absolute surrender today; surrendering to God.”

If we think we have to stand apart from God and fight for our protection and our rights, we need to take a quiet moment and stand back and recognize that that thinking is what keeps our world at war; war inside our families, inside our communities, inside our country and in the world. And inside each one of us.

We don’t need to be at war with each other. We’ve already tried that and look at our world. Clearly that doesn’t work. What we need is to learn a better way.

Trying to solve the world’s problems at the level of the world is impossible. At the level of the world we are blinded by our own fears and anger and sadness and limited by our opinions, misperceptions and misunderstandings and past experiences. Instead we need to ask for help to rise above the fray and ask God for a better way. 

“On our own we can do nothing, but in God are all our problems solved.” ACIM

Every time we attack another, no matter how “right” and “righteous” we feel, we are allowing ourselves to be part of the problem and have let the solution fade from our sight. And now we’re stuck in the same old, archaic thinking that has kept this world in chaos since the beginning of time.

*****

Let us pray for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness and safety we want for everyone on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

“A happy outcome to all things is sure.” A Course In Miracles
