The Songbird’s Nightmare

So let us pretend to live without fear; for what tomorrow will
Bring we can do little for but sing, as a songbird would, at the rising Sun then blink to try to clear the blur which comes from a night of Songbird’s dreams; a dark and darker night which seems more real Than the nest on which he spills the mourning raindrops of a
Deep night’s breath then quivers; or, are those sounds the
Dying shivers which one hears overnight when awakened by a Nightmare’s gasp at life?
The songbird’s nightmare is a sash which overhangs the joy
And, unlike a spoiled child who has lost his favorite toy,
He see’s the rising sun and perches up to sing
For he has lived another way and despite the dark
Is inspired by a golden light burning, as it were:
A day, a day, a day.

 

Loving God – Profound Ideas from “A Course In Miracles”

SONY DSC“Son of God, you have not sinned, but you have been much mistaken.  Yet this can be corrected and God will help you, knowing that you could not sin against Him.  You denied Him because you loved Him, knowing that if you recognized your love for Him, you could not deny Him.  Your denial of Him therefore means that you love Him, and that you know He loves you.  Remember that what you deny you must have once known.  And if you accept denial, you can accept its undoing.”

–From Chapter 10 The Idols of Sickness V. The Denial of God

I find it quite a revelation that one cannot deny something someone has never known, and that it therefore follows, one has once known the love of God at some point during the existence of their Soul.
