The quiet light in which Spirit dwells within you is merely perfect openness, in which nothing is hidden and therefore nothing is fearful. - paraphrased from A Course in Miracles T.14.VI.2.1 We are one already, so get used to It. God is never on the side of sidedness nor divisiveness so it is in our true whole Self nature to seek harmony and cooperation. This means the goal of inner peace as awareness of our wholeness is for all – not just the few. As separate beings we each have a path that seems to end in parted endings i.e. "death do us part". The invitation from our whole Self is always to look instead to the never-ending evidence of continuing life. Life's continuum is often symbolized by the renewing evidence, that each spring season brings. Life springs eternal in whatever form it seems to separately show up in. Despite outward appearances We are equally eternal as Spirit. This continuum is without endings or even new beginning shifts needed to mark Life's Presence. The shifts in global consciousness toward an inclusive understanding of our eternal equality have not been without tumult. The eventuality of a peaceful outcome seems unknown as though unattainable and therefore fearfully hidden. What is hidden from us can seem fearful indeed if it seems out of our control to affect. We need only look within to see the ego's hidden agenda "control dramas" that are now symbolized by the desire to over throw dictatorships. The ego dictates to us not unlike an oppressive dictator
that can fearfully keep us in the dark about our equality. This equality is represented by our whole Self. Our whole Self knows only fearless loving inclusiveness as Spirit. As Spirit we are never in fear since we are never divided from the Whole. Greater freedom from fear occurs with each undoubting recognition of our forever Oneness. I make a note here about the style capitalization I often use. It is creatively inspired by both our nation's historic documents that often capitalized Ideas such as Life, Liberty and Happiness as conceptual ideals and the style of capitalization used in the book A Course in Miracles. Like ACIM the capitalization I use is intended to indicate the inclusiveness of the word's meaning. This meaning is also synonymous with our whole Self that is one with the Whole (i.e. God). As capitalized Ideas they symbolically represent our oneness by whatever Name(s) we choose to label Us with. The book I am writing titled "We the People, Co-creating Inner Peace" (work in progress) uses this style of writing as described in this excerpt from Chapter 1. "There is a reason for each capital letter that appears within a sentence. They are most often used to indicate an inclusive Thought of oneness. The use of Words such as We, Us, Our and All are examples of this. These examples are also intentionally gender free to represent the all-inclusiveness of a genderless Name. The use of capitalized Thoughts may also indicate creative Ideas inspired by a shared creative Source (i.e., God, Divine Mind, Creator, etc.)." (from We The People, Co-creating Inner Peace, Chapter 1) The title of the book and the A Capital Idea play I co-creatively wrote are titled to symbolize this as well. (see playbill for additional examples by clicking here). In summary, We the people in order to formlessly become aware of Our perfect Union need only look within to recognize Ourselves in unity with all there is. This awareness is within each of Us as the One despite outward appearances of our singular separateness as "each other". Let Us rejoice in that awareness despite our seeming differences of opinion on the subject of Our equally shared oneness.
Peace Nouvella, Alice Yeager
May a new peace be scripted in your heart co-authored with God – a Peace Nouvella™.
