Keep it simple, silly

My place in this space

This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, certain that Your direction gives me peace. (ACIM Lessons 361-365) Your simple direction. I love that ‘direction’ has two meanings here: direction as in guidance, and direction as in the way I would follow.

And so ends the Course. The last lesson being done, still a tiny bit from the manual to go, and where am I? Am I enlightened? No. Am I a giver of miracles? Not really. Am I a teacher of God? Hardly. So what do I have to show for myself? Greater understanding. Through the experiences the Course has opened me to, I think I can say I have a better understanding of my place in this space. Things seem to make a lot more sense. What once looked like chaos now lacks meaning. The world I once saw as my enemy is slowly filtering away as imagination. The past is getting dimmer and the future is fading, as this here now is gaining ground. I am seeing innocence where once only evil lurked. And at times I can look upon you and see me.

I am on my way home, as I’ve always been, as we all are. Only now I have direction, where before I had confusion. A path is being beaten to my door.
