God goes with you wherever you go. There is nothing that is not God. Our belief in separateness is the cause of all distress, all fear, all doubt. The following excerpt from LESSON 41 of A Course in Miracles describes this beautifully.

God goes with me wherever I go.

Today’s idea will eventually overcome completely the sense of loneliness and abandonment all separated ones experience. Depression is an inevitable consequence of separation. So are anxiety, worry, a deep sense of helplessness, misery, suffering and intense fear of loss.

The separated ones have invented many ‘cures’ for what they believe to be “the ills of the world.” But the one thing they do not do is to question the reality of the problem. Yet its effects cannot be cured because the problem is not real. The idea for today has the power to end all this foolishness forever. And foolishness it is, despite the serious and tragic forms it may take.

Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the world. It will cure all sorrow and pain and fear and loss because it will heal the mind that thought these things were real, and suffered out of the allegiance to them.

You can never be deprived of your perfect holiness because its Source goes with you wherever you go. You can never suffer because the Source of all joy goes with you wherever you go. Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go.

Now, I’d like to share a few words from Louise Hay that would seem to have been inspired by the above concept. You can repeat these to yourself first thing upon awakening, before going to sleep and whenever the need arises.

Deep at the centre of my being is an infinite well of Love. I now allow this Love to flow to the surface. It fills my heart, my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being and radiates out from me in all directions and returns to me multiplied. The more love I use and give the more I have to give. The supply is endless. The use of love makes me feel good. It is an expression of my inner joy. . . . I love myself therefore: I forgive and totally release the past and all past experiences and I Am free. I love myself: therefore I live totally in the now experiencing each moment as good; for I Am a child of the Universe and the Universe lovely takes care of me now and forevermore and so it is.

I wish you joy, happiness and laughter always,
