T-22.I.2.” If you attack whom God would heal and hate the one He loves, then you and your Creator have a different will.”
The Course in Miracles says that your will and God’s will is one. When you are “on your path” and remembering who you are, you are in alignment with your “real will.” You cannot help but do “God’s will” because in reality, your will and his/her will is one.
The Course in Miracles challenges us to remember who we are, to remember where we came from and what created us. The course says that we are all children-of-God and with that, we are loved and are love. If we are not acting from this space, then we have forgotten who we are.
If we want to attack another, we are certainly not doing God’s bidding. We can attack in the small as well as the large. Attack can come in the form of ignoring someone, slighting them, cutting them down, or can be more grievous behavior such as physical violence. In any case, attack of any kind is not remembering who we are.
The Course will challenge us to give attack entirely and for all times. However, giving up attack doesn’t mean we have to be ignorant to the truth of how people are behaving or surround ourselves in situations that are difficult and overwhelming for ourselves if we are under constant attack. Do not forget who you are! You are the truth and the way and the light. In every situations, lies a solution. When you see attack, try to find a way to be certain and solid on the love underlining yourself and the other. Be the energy of solution. Have faith that with God all things are possible. Be of service and do God’s bidding. Don’t attack back. However, if you find yourself in weakened state and tempted to defend yourself and “counter-attack”, then if possible, remove yourself from the situation, take a deep breath, and then come back to love …. another day.
What solutions would you like to see this week? For me, time…. When time is not an attack, then I will have all the time in the world.
