Lesson 117 “God, being Love, is also happiness.” and “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.”

LESSON 117


For morning and evening review:


1. God, being Love, is also happiness.


Let me remember love is happiness, and nothing else brings joy. And so I choose to entertain no substitutes for love.


2. I seek but what belongs to me in truth.


Love is my heritage, and with it joy. These are the gifts my Father gave to me. I would accept all that is mine in truth.


3. On the hour:

God, being Love, is also happiness.


On the half hour:

I seek but what belongs to me in truth.

-Lesson 117
Review: “God, being Love, is also happiness.”
and “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.”

Accepting God is accepting inner happiness. Accepting God or Love is accepting joy. I don’t often think of it that way. But today’s lesson is telling me that this is the truth. My true Identity is happiness and joy. Everyone’s true Identity is happiness and joy. Let me today connect with the happiness and joy in everyone. Let me today see beyond the false ideas to the happiness and joy that is always there to be found.

Today I choose to accept happiness and find happiness everywhere. If only God is real, only happiness is real, only joy is real. Happiness and joy are inherent in Love. They go together. Today I will practice accepting my inheritance. I will practice accepting happiness and joy. They are inherent in what I am. I will practice accepting my Self today. The frequent repetitions will help me remember the truth today.


Advertisers use words and phrases such as genuine, original, accept no substitutes, it’s the real thing. They appeal to the part of us that is seeking for what is real. It’s time to stop accepting substitutes for Love. Love is what is real and true about us.

The world was made as a substitute for Love when specialness was valued more than the universality of Love given equally to all. The substitutes leave us feeling empty because the substitutes are empty. I cannot have both Love and specialness. Love is oneness and specialness can only exist in separation. To be special I must set myself apart. But to be apart means to be alone. I cannot be happy if I believe I am apart from all that Is.

Today I would let that go and accept my oneness with Love and happiness. Holy Spirit, help me to see the sameness that I share with all my brothers. Help me to see the Love, my one Self, in everyone. Help me to let go of all the false images I have sought to overlay upon my brothers as a substitute for the real thing. Today is a day to practice accepting no substitutes and seeking the real thing: Love and nothing else. I seek but what is mine in truth.
