We can live in a state of grace.
If we’re not actively living in a state of grace it’s only because we’re choosing something else instead. And, let’s face it, although it’s completely insane, we do frequently choose that which will delay our happiness.
Here’s a beautiful teaching from A Course in Miracles:
“Error cannot really threaten truth, which can always withstand it. Only the error is actually vulnerable. You are free to establish your kingdom where you see fit, but the right choice is inevitable if you remember this: Spirit is in a state of grace forever. Your reality is only spirit. Therefore you are in a state of grace forever.” T-1.III.5.
Peace, Grace, Love, Joy and Beauty, these spiritual qualities (and more) are all available to us at all times.
They are omnipresent and yet, we seem not to see them. We pass them by, while our attention is caught, like a prisoner escaping over barbed wire, by tiny, sticky upsets that hold our awareness focused on a tiny pain point.
All the while we could be focused on heaven, but we choose hell instead. It’s more interesting. Or maybe it’s more familiar. Maybe it’s both.
Each day, despite the barbed wire, we can choose to go the other way and live in a state of grace. We choose.
It’s a good day to choose again, and to choose to live in a state of grace, forever.
All we have to do is be willing to give up valuing something else more. Are you in?
