I want the peace of God.
What does this mean? It is not the stimulation of the dream. It is a steady, even happiness, for there is just no reason to be sad. No, not in Heaven. The Heaven that exists right where You are. And Its location has no limits, for It is everywhere. For Heaven is the State of Mind of God.
1 To say these words is nothing. As Your modern saying goes: talk is cheap. Intention is all. But to mean these words is everything. What do they promise but the end of fear? If you could but mean them for just an instant, there would be no further sorrow possible for you in any form, in any place or time. Why won’t You mean them? Because of Your addiction to the dreams. Heaven would be completely given back to full awareness, memory of God entirely restored, the resurrection of all creation fully recognized. How can You mean them? It’s so very easy: just be willing.
2 No one can mean these words and not be healed. What gets in the way of meaning them but Your unwillingness? Unwillingness to give up the dreaming. He cannot play with dreams nor think he is himself a dream. He cannot make a hell and think it real. Who can choose hell and still say they want peace? The One who makes a different choice is S/He who chooses Heaven. He wants the peace of God, and it is given him. For that is all he wants, and that is all he will receive. Many have said these words. But few indeed have meant them. You have but to look upon the world you see around you to be sure how very few they are. The world would be completely changed should any two agree these words express the only thing they want. Have You ever made a list of things that You prefer to peace? I’m glad to help You: having Your own way, having lots of money, shopping, watching television, romance, marriage and divorce, getting the very latest cell phone, and, naturally, the newest i-pad. Who needs peace, when You’ve got such nifty toys?
Ah, but for those of You who want God more, rewards are greater:
3 Two minds with one intent become so strong that what they will – their pure intention – becomes the Will of God. For minds can only join in truth. In dreams no two can share the same intent. To each the hero of the dream is different—the outcome wanted not the same for both. For the ‘hero’ or the ‘heroine’ do each want their own way. Loser and gainer merely shift about in changing patterns, as the ratio of gain to loss and loss to gain takes on a different aspect of another form. Such, the Dreamer’s ‘life’ (what passes for it).
4 Yet compromise alone a dream can bring. Sometimes it takes the form of union, but only the form. The meaning must escape the dream, for compromising is the goal of dreaming. Minds cannot unite in dreams. For the whole point of dreams is separation, not unity! They merely bargain. And what bargain can give them the peace of God? Illusions come to take His place. And what He means is lost to sleeping minds intent on compromise, each to his gain and to another’s loss. “Let Me get My way now!” screams the ego! Intent on but this one thing!
5 To mean you want the peace of God is to renounce all dreams. Oh! That asks a lot! For no one means these words who wants illusions and who therefore seeks the means which bring illusions. He wants to keep on with endless dreaming. It is no accident that You are here. A glimpse of the Peace of God shows You something that makes You new. Desire changes. Sometimes from the heart, other times boredom with the dream or even horror of it. For His own reasons, He has looked on them and found them wanting. Now he seeks to go beyond them, recognizing that another dream would offer nothing more than all the others. This realizing is quite vital, otherwise He’ll choose to die just to exit. Dreams are one to him. And he has learned their only difference is one of form, for one will bring the same despair and misery as do the rest. Now He’s hearing Home calling Him through the longing for His Peace.
6 The mind which means that all it wants is peace must join with other minds, for that is how peace is obtained. By ending the jarring experience of separation. And when the wish for peace is genuine, the means for finding it are given in a form each mind which seeks for it in honesty can understand. Whatever form the lesson takes is planned for him in such a way that he can not mistake it if his asking is sincere. We are attentive to each and every One of You who dream. So We are ready! And if he asks without sincerity, there is no form in which the lesson will meet with acceptance and be truly learned. Sincerity cannot be pretended, for it must pour out of Your deep longing.
7 Let us today devote our practicing to recognizing that we really mean the words we say. What would Your experience of Life be like if You allow Yourself to find Peace, for God and Peace are but inseparable? You got that right! The answer is Heaven. This understanding strengthens Your desire for fruition! We want the peace of God. This is no idle wish. These words do not request another dream be given us. Heaven forfend that! They do not ask for compromise nor try to make another bargain in the hope that there may yet be one which can succeed where all the rest have failed. We are done with dreams! To mean these words acknowledges illusions are in vain, requesting the eternal in the place of shifting dreams which seem to change in what they offer, but are one in nothingness. For the Eternal always is but Love, … and always loving.
8 Today devote your practice periods to careful searching of your mind to find the dreams you cherish still. For they can rise up to block Your longing. What do you ask for in your heart? Forget the words you use in making your requests. Consider but what you believe will comfort you and bring you happiness. What do You think still has value for You? Do they surprise You? But be you not dismayed by lingering illusions, for their form is not what matters now. Let not some dreams be more acceptable, reserving shame and secrecy for others. They are one. Dreams are hiding Heaven from You. Would You keep on keeping them?
9 And being one, one question should be asked of all of them: “Is this what I would have, in place of Heaven and the peace of God?” Do I really think this dream improves upon constant experience of Heaven. This is the choice you make. Be not deceived that it is otherwise. No compromise is possible in this. You choose God’s peace, or you have asked for dreams. One or the other. Dreams will block Your peace. And dreams will come as you requested them. Just as they have done for many eons since separation. Don’t stay on that road, for it must always ultimate in hell. Yet will God’s peace come just as certainly and to remain with you forever. For God is the only Reality. It will not be gone with every twist and turning of the road to reappear unrecognized in forms which shift and change with every step you take. This is the experience of dreamings.
10 You want the peace of God. And so do all who seem to seek for dreams. For them as well as for yourself you ask but this when you make this request with deep sincerity. Ignore all the blatant blandishments of ego! For it can be so convincing! Be focused and be steadfast, and You will be free along with all of Your Brothers. For thus you reach to what they really want and join your own intent with what they seek above all things, perhaps unknown to them, but sure to you. For We All are One. You have been weak at times, uncertain in your purpose and unsure of what you wanted, where to look for it, and where to turn for help in the attempt. Help has been given you. This time strengthening all Your desires. And would you not avail yourself of it by sharing it? Although We seem separated, truly We are all in this attempt together, longing for success!
11 No one who truly seeks the peace of God can fail to find it. Since It is right here. For he merely asks that he deceive himself no longer by denying to himself what is God’s Will. God knows We really have not run away, but are just a very long-time dreaming. And dreams aren’t real. Who can remain unsatisfied who asks for what he has already? Who could be unanswered who requests an answer which is his to give? The peace of God is yours. We need but Awaken to experience It forever.
No moat to swim through filled with crocodiles, all very hungry! Just a sure changing of Your mind today. Why delay longer?
12 For you it was created, given you by its Creator and established as His own eternal gift. Peace is the natural condition of Our Home: Heaven. How can you fail when you but ask for what He wills for you? It’s already Yours. Only Your pretenses hide Peace from You. And how could your request be limited to you alone? No gift of God can be unshared. It is this attribute that sets the gifts of God apart from every dream that ever seemed to take the place of truth. Won’t You do this small thing – change Your mind – for Yourself and every one of Your Others?
13 No one can lose and everyone must gain whenever any gift of God has been requested and received by anyone. So just keep asking, … and really mean it! God gives but to unite. To take away is meaningless to Him. And when it is as meaningless to you, you can be sure you share one Will with Him, and He with you. And you will also know you share one Will with all your brothers, whose intent is yours. You have deliberately forgotten how wonderful is One, the antithesis of separation.
14 It is this one intent we seek today, uniting our desires with the need of every heart, the call of every mind, the hope that lies beyond despair, the love attack would hide, the brotherhood that hate has sought to sever, but which still remains as God created it. We All remain One; thus can We bless each and every Brother. With help like this beside us, can we fail today as we request the peace of God be given us? Feel It descend so very gently, a dove flying into Your heart and Your mind, filling them with Peace. Filling them with Love.
