The ego knows of only two choices, right or wrong. It doesn’t know of the choice for peace or joy or love. Understanding is the egos substitute for claiming and owning the truth. There always seems to be something standing in the way of simply making the choice to be innocent. There seems to be the possibility I could be wrong about being innocent and so condemned for choosing innocence and love. Choosing to be loving despite this fear is what we call “faith.” It is a knowing that love supersedes all concepts of fear without the need for justification. The “miracle” is what shows up to change the ego’s “normal” manifestations of events in its physical world when loving experiences arise to replace those of fear. When I have opened my heart, forgiven the world and accepted the reality of my innocence, the real adventure of loving will begin.
