LOVE
 
 

I am His Garden of Love. The Thought of God surrounds my little kingdom, waiting at the barrier I built to come inside and shine upon the barren ground. See how life springs up everywhere! The desert becomes a garden, green and deep and quiet, offering rest to all who lost their way and wander in the dust. I give them a place of refuge, prepared by love for them where once a desert was. And everyone I welcome will bring love with him from Heaven for me. They enter one by one into this holy place, but they will not depart as they had come, alone. The love they brought with them will stay with them, as it will stay with me. And under its beneficence my little garden will expand, and reach out to everyone who thirsts for living water, but has grown too weary to go on alone.

Each day, and every minute in each day, and every instant that each minute holds, I but relive the single instant when the time of terror took the place of love. And so I die each day to live again, until I cross the gap between the past and present, which is not a gap at all. Such is each life; a seeming interval from birth to death and on to life again, a repetition of an instant gone by long ago that cannot be relived. And all of time is but the mad belief that what is over is still here and now.

Love holds no grievances. I am surrounded by the Love of God.

Father, You stand before me and behind, beside me, in the place I see myself, and everywhere I go. You are in all the things I look upon, the sounds I hear, and every hand that reaches for my own. In You time disappears, and place becomes a meaningless belief. For what surrounds Your Son and keeps him safe is Love Itself. There is no Source but This, and nothing is that does not share Its holiness; that stands beyond Your one creation, or without the Love Which holds all things within Itself. Father, Your Son is like Yourself. I come to You in Your Own Name today, to be at peace within Your everlasting Love.

I join with all my brothers in salvation's prayer today. We join in what will save the world, along with us. It is this simple truth, I am sustained by the love of God. I let it sink deep into my consciousness. I repeat it, think about it, let related thoughts come to help me recognize its truth, and allow peace to flow over me like a blanket of protection and surety. I let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God. Such is the Kingdom of Heaven. Such is the resting place where my Father has placed me forever.

Love created me like Itself. Nothing is lost to me in all the universe. Nothing that God created has He failed to lay before me lovingly, as mine forever. And no Thought within His Mind is absent from my own. It is His Will I share His Love for me, and look upon myself as lovingly as He conceived of me before the world began, and as He knows me still. God changes not His Mind about His Son with passing circumstance which has no meaning in eternity where He abides, and I with Him. I am as God created me. And my brother is as God created him. It is this that saves me from this world that God created not.

And now God asks but that I think of Him a while each day, that He may speak to me and tell me of His Love, reminding me how great His Trust; how limitless His Love. In my name and His Own, which are the same, we practice gladly with this thought today, I will step back and let Him lead the way, for I would walk along the road to Him.
