Whatever happens, I can remember Peace.
My teachers have been telling me to drop the conditions and modifiers. I AM Peace. I can ALWAYS remember that. If it appears I have forgotten, I may have. But if I choose to be peace, in that moment, I can be.
How is this true, and how do I know it is true? ACIM says "To have peace, teach peace to learn it." Am I just defining my experience at all times as peace? what does that mean?
I want peace with what is. The "peace" in that phrase is my eternal relationship to WHAT IS, or God. You must have seen this, or you will. Letting myself proclaim my loyalty to that which I am calling peace, is the purest, most abstract expression of wanting. Wanting is not in itself particularly peaceful. But in that pure expression of loyalty, there must be the willingness that signals to God to close the gap between us.
I can be silent, thank God!
No, I can be Silence
