Part II

3. What Is The World?

Lesson 246

To Love My Father Is To Love His Son.

Let me not think that I can find the way to God if I have hatred in my heart. Let me not try to hurt God’s Son45 and think that I can know his Father or my Self. Let me not fail to recognize myself and still believe that my awareness can contain my Father, or my mind conceive of all the love my Father has for me and all the love which I return to Him.46

2. I will accept the way You choose for me to come to You, my Father.47 For in that will I succeed, because it is Your will. And I would recognize that what You will is what I will as well, and only that. And so I choose to love Your Son. Amen.[1]

Footnote 45. “God’s Son” here refers to our brothers, the ones we hate and must come to love.

Footnote 46. “Fail to recognize myself” seems to be the same as the inability to “know…my Self” from the previous sentence. The idea is that when we hate and try to hurt our brother, we become blinded to who we really are. Falsely believing we are sinful and unworthy, we cannot conceive of how much God really loves us and how much we really love Him.

Footnote 47. The way God chooses for us to come to Him is through love of our brothers. That God chooses this implies that it is the best option among a field of potential ways to return to Him.

Personal Notes:

To love my Father is to love His Son. I meditate on above prayer today, and in quiet I wait to hear my Father’s Voice. I pray for all my brothers and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination, of 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
