Fear is not justified in any form.

Fear is deception. It attests that you have seen yourself as you could never be, and therefore look upon a world which is impossible. Not one thing in this world is true. It does not matter what the form in which it may appear. It witnesses but to your own illusions of yourself. Let us not be deceived today. We are the Sons of God. There is no fear in us, for we are each a part of Love Itself.

How foolish are our fears! Would You allow Your Son to suffer? Give us faith today to recognize Your Son, and set him free. Let us forgive him in Your Name, that we may understand his holiness, and feel the love for him which is Your Own as well.

Experience Lesson 240

Reflections of Light

The truth is there is no fear in you. “Fear is deception. It attest that you have seen yourself as you could never be, and therefore look upon a world which is impossible.” It is a mistaken thought, and based on the ego’s thought system of separation.

To believe that your body and the world is an illusion, and that they are just mistaken thoughts is be threatening to the ego. Yet Jesus tells you over and over in the Course that you are as God created you: Sinless, eternal, changeless and forever united as the One Son of God.

You are Love itself as you were created in Love. Quiet your mind, ask for guidance in remembering. With Christ’s vision, see the reflection of love in the world. You are Love. You are Free. You are eternal.

“Teach only Love, for that is what you are.”

You are Love’s Light

There is another way of looking at the world. A way in which holiness envelopes everything you see and giving and receiving are one. You are this holiness. Love created you like itself and there is nothing you can do to change this. You merely had a dream you were separate. You have chosen now to awaken from your sleep. You have chosen to remember who you are. You are Love’s Light.
