Like a Star....

Here are some re-assuring ideas from the Course. “Even though we have left love [our real and natural connection with spirit, for the ego’s illusion], love has not left us…. Whom God has joined as one, the ego cannot put asunder…. The thought God holds of you is like a star, unchangeable in an eternal sky. So high in Heaven is it set that those outside of Heaven know not it is there. Yet still and white and lovely will it shine through all eternity. There was no time it was not there; no instant when its light grew dimmer or less perfect (than) ever was.

“Who knows (spirit) knows this light, for It is the eternal sky that holds it safe, forever lifted up and anchored sure. Its perfect purity does not depend on whether it is seen on earth or not….”

“Let us be glad we can walk the world, and find so many chances to perceive another situation where (spirit’s) gift can once again be recognized as ours! Thus will all vestiges of hell, the secret sins and hidden hates be gone. And all the loveliness which they concealed appear, to lift us high above the thorny roads we traveled before…

“When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter [that you are in the learning laboratory, with another opportunity to learn, and an opportunity to be free of judgment and guilt]. As you see this person you will see yourself. In this person you will find yourSelf or lose yourSelf.”

You are not a stranger to yourSelf, nor has yourSelf made you a stranger. The thought God holds of you is like a star….
