All that is needful is to train our minds to overlook all little, senseless
aims, and to remember that our goal is God. His memory is hidden
in our minds, obscured but by our pointless little goals which offer
nothing and do not exist. Shall we continue to allow God’s grace to
shine in unawareness, while the toys and trinkets of the world are
sought instead? God is our only goal, our only Love. We have no aim
but to remember Him.
“Our goal is but to follow in the way that leads to You.We have no goal but this.What could we want but to remember You? What could we seek but our identity?”
-A Course in Miracles Lesson 258
If we could remember one thing in the morning, it is what our GOAL is and to ask ourselves "what is my goal for today" and then drop the question and sink into the heart and feel what this means for you. Open to insight, inspiration, imagery, emotions and excitement as to the direction you want to take.
The One Goal that makes all healing happen, all happiness possible and all creations and joys made manifest- is the one goal of God! God is our Source, is our Love, is our ticket to sanity and a life of miracles.... this choice is really no choice at all, for this IS our reality in the Kingdom of Heaven. We are learning that we have never left this Heavenly Home, this is why we say we are REMEMBERING that my goal is God; because we have forgotten.
We all forget when we come to earth we are not guilty for this. You have not done anything wrong. This world is a blanket before the human eyes offering shifting emotions and fear and placing all worldly wants of this world ahead of God. This will always lead us back to the same place. When we end up where we once were still suffering and in pain, we eventually have to make another choice....... Sooner or later, the choice for God must be made by every mind. We inevitably must hand our minds back to Source, instead of begin subject to repetitive conflicting man-made ego. Our power is in our choice to let the Goal be listening to God and serving God instead of the ego. It takes practice and mind training and learning like anything else that is new but this IS the direction that will inevitably bring us the peace ans sheer joy and purpose our hearts long for.
So each day, each moment, each time you can remember, FEEL that God is your heart, and remember that this LOVE is your Goal. Any time we fall out of the space of love you can slip back into it by knowing you've lost your way, your not at peace, you need a new way. Open to listening to a new teacher within, that speaks for this goal of Love and let it lead you life through the means to reach the Goal. In this one Goal of God, is every other goal that serves the all, welcomed and experienced.
This is no idle wish, it is a promise from a Father to His Child to return to Him and be in joyous celebration and continual extension of His Creation, that we may be finally happy and at peace with in our Self.
So today, in the quiet of your heart, remember, that my goal is God.
