Thy Will be done On earth as it is in heaven.”
If you are going to be offended by the godless acts of others, then be offended when they occur in you and don’t tolerate sin, sickness or death at your own hand [by your own mind]. Demand correction, real correction, visible measurable correction — God’s will done on earth as it is in heaven.
Remember, every act you engage in by yourself is the godless act of one who can see only a godless world. Why? Because God’s Vision hasn’t been invited in, embraced, or committed to. But when It is invited in, when one engages in the holy instant, one’s experience of the world begins to change, soften, fill with the warmth of love . . . and healing begins. Divine perspective returns and one engages in breaking the mental habit which had secured suffering. And, yes, there is only one habit to be broken: Thinking!
You know the difference between thinking and listening. Thinking is a purposely disengaged private self-assertive experience. Listening, on the other hand, involves an extending of one’s attention for the purpose of involvement, embrace — joining again and maintaining the involvement. To listen for the Holy Spirit is called the holy instant, the bridge from illusion to reality. And it is ultimately a matter of deferring to the Voice for Truth permanently.
The holy instant is the singular gift of A Course in Miracles. It is the midnight star that the Wise Students give their attention to on their “journey” Home. And whether anyone else is teaching it or not, I will ceaselessly point to its Light, while reminding you that it brings correction where correction is needed — “as in heaven, so on earth!”
