Just as God’s Son completes his Father, so your part in it completes your Father’s plan. Salvation must reverse mad belief in separate thoughts and separate bodies, which lead separate lives and go their separate ways. One function shared by separate minds unites them in one purpose, for each one of them is equally essential to them all.
We will prepare ourselves for this today, in our five-minute practice periods, by feeling happiness arise in us according to our Father’s Will and ours. Begin the exercises with the thought today’s idea contains. Then realize your part is to be happy. Only this is asked of you or anyone who wants to take his place among God’s messengers. Think what this means. You have indeed been wrong in your belief that sacrifice is asked. You but receive according to God’s plan, and never lose or sacrifice or die.
**Please see full lesson in A Course in Miracles for practice. These posts are intended to show what ACIM is and how it might be helpful, however I recommend if you make it your own practice to start from the beginning and to use the book. In general, the longer practices are between 10 and 15 minutes and the shorter practices are less than a minute.
