PONDER on THIS for Thursday, April 13th, 2017 by Marianne Williamson in THE GIFT OF CHANGE

“Conscience is important, as is remorse. But they are meant to lead us to new life, not leave us drowning in a sea of guilt. When we have chosen fear instead of love – and who among us hasn’t – then the love we might have chosen is “held in trust for us by the Holy Spirit” until we are ready to receive it. To me, that’s one of the most incredible principles in A Course in Miracles. It’s amazing when you think about it: I could have said or done the right, loving thing, and if I had, then such and such a thing would then have happened. However, I did not. I’ve been trained by the world to think with fear, and I did. Yet God saved the possibility I turned down, until I’m ready to return to love and choose again.”

Marianne Williamson, in “The Gift of Change”
