A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson 50
I am sustained by the Love of God.
W-pI.50.1. Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time. 2 In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God. 3 Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, "protective" clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the "right" people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers.
W-pI.50.2. All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. 2 All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. 3 They are songs of praise to the ego. 4 Do not put your faith in the worthless. 5 It will not sustain you.
W-pI.50.3. Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances. 2 It will lift you out of every trial, and raise you high above all the perceived dangers of this world into a climate of perfect peace and safety. 3 It will transport you into a state of mind that nothing can threaten, nothing can disturb, and where nothing can intrude upon the eternal calm of the Son of God.
W-pI.50.4. Put not your faith in illusions. 2 They will fail you. 3 Put all your faith in the Love of God within you; eternal, changeless and forever unfailing. 4 This is the answer to whatever confronts you today. 5 Through the Love of God within you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence. 6 Tell yourself this often today. 7 It is a declaration of release from the belief in idols. 8 It is your acknowledgment of the truth about yourself.
W-pI.50.5. For ten minutes, twice today, morning and evening, let the idea for today sink deep into your consciousness. 2 Repeat it, think about it, let related thoughts come to help you recognize its truth, and allow peace to flow over you like a blanket of protection and surety. 3 Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God. 4 Such is the Kingdom of Heaven. 5 Such is the resting place where your Father has placed you forever.
