Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now.

Lesson 103

God, Being Love, is Also Happiness.

Happiness is an attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it, nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere, and therefore joy is everywhere as well. Yet can the mind deny that this is so, believing there are gaps in love where sin can enter, bringing pain instead of joy.

2. This strange belief would limit happiness by redefining love as limited, and introducing oppositions in what has no limit and no opposite. Fear is associated now with love, and its results become the heritage of minds which think what they have made is real. These images, with no reality in truth, bear witness to the fear of God, forgetting being love He must be joy.

3. This basic error we will try again to shift to truth today, teaching ourselves:

God being love, is also happiness.

To fear Him is to be afraid of joy.

     Begin your longer exercises for today with this association, which corrects the false belief that God is fear. It also emphasizes happiness belongs to you because of what He is.

4. Allow this one correction to be placed within your mind each waking hour today. Then welcome all the happiness it brings, as truth replaces fear and joy becomes what you expect to take the place of pain. God being love, it will be given you. Bolster this expectation frequently throughout the day, and quiet all your fears with this assurance, kind and wholly true:

God, being love, is also happiness.

And it is happiness I seek today.

I cannot fail, because I seek the truth.[1]

Personal Notes:

“God, being love, is also happiness.” I record and listen to this truth on the hourly five-minute periods to learn and accept: God, being love, is also happiness. And it is happiness I seek today. I cannot fail, because I seek the truth. I ask Holy Spirit to help us learn and make this real to us today, to help us not to forget, God being love, is happiness. It is happiness we seek. We cannot fail because it is Truth we seek. 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
