Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 102

I Share God’s Will for Happiness for Me.

You do not want to suffer. You may think it buys you something, and may still believe a little that it buys you what you want. Yet this belief is surely shaken now, at least enough to let you question it, and to suspect it really makes no sense. It has not gone as yet, but lacks the roots that once secured it tightly to the dark and hidden secret places of your mind.

2. Today we try to loose its weakened hold still further, and to realize that pain is purposeless, without cause, and with no power to accomplish anything. It cannot purchase anything at all. It offers nothing and does not exist. And everything you think it offers you is lacking in existence, like itself. You have been slave to nothing. Be free today to join the happy will of God.

3. For several days we will continue to devote our longer practice periods to exercises planned to help you reach the happiness God’s will has placed in you. Here is your home, and here your safety is. Here is your peace, and here there is no fear. Here is salvation. Here is rest at last. Begin the longer practice periods with this acceptance of God’s will for you:

I share God’s will for happiness for me,

And I accept it as my function now.

     Then seek this function deep within your mind, for it is there, awaiting but your choice. You cannot fail to find it when you learn it is your choice, and that you share God’s will.

4. Be happy, for your only function here is happiness. You have no need to be less loving to God’s Son than He Whose Love created him as loving as Himself. Besides these hourly five-minute rest, pause frequently today to tell yourself that you have now accepted happiness as your one function. And be sure that you are joining with God’s will in doing this.[1]

Personal Notes:

“I share God’s will for happiness for me.” To record and listen to the lesson on the hourly five-minute periods, to accept and practice is very helpful in tearing out the roots of fear and lies that would try to tell me the opposite of what God’s Will is for me. I share God’s will for happiness for me, and I accept it as my function. The happiness of wellness, safety, security, confidence, holy friendships, love, loyalty; I choose God’s will for happiness for me that I would have no fear or concerns for all the things that would tempt me to turn away and suffer or be destressed. I choose to share God’s Will for happiness for me and accept it as my function to know as truth and be able to share truth in love and confidence, to share the true message of salvation, freedom, no longer a slave to nothingness but a partaker of the Pure and Perfect Love of my Heavenly Father. When temptation comes, I remind myself God’s will for me is happiness, I choose God’s Will to be one with my will and I accept it as my function to share. I pray for all my brothers, sisters and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!

God is Love

Love is God

I choose Love
