Lesson 103 – God, being Love, is also happiness

Happiness is an attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it. Nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere. And therefore joy is everywhere as well. Yet can the mind deny that this is so, believing there are gaps in love where sin can enter, bringing pain instead of joy. This strange belief would limit happiness by redefining love as limited, and introducing opposition in what has no limit and no opposite.

Fear is associated then with love, and its results become the heritage of minds that think what they have made is real. These images, with no reality in truth, bear witness to the fear of God, forgetting being Love, He must be joy. This basic error we will try again to bring to truth today, and teach ourselves:

God, being Love, is also happiness.
To fear Him is to be afraid of joy.

Begin your periods of practising today with this association, which corrects the false belief that God is fear. It also emphasises happiness belongs to you, because of what He is.

Allow this one correction to be placed within your mind each waking hour today. Then welcome all the happiness it brings as truth replaces fear, and joy becomes what you expect to take the place of pain. God being Love, it will be given you. Bolster this expectation frequently throughout the day, and quiet all your fears with this assurance, kind and wholly true:

God, being Love, is also happiness.
And it is happiness I seek today.
I cannot fail, because I seek the truth.


One thought on “Lesson 103 – God, being Love, is also happiness”

  1. My take on this lesson is that what we have made is not real, it is not True. Because of this, there can be no fear, only Love and Happiness which are True and fear doesn’t exist in the light of Truth. Fear is replaced with Love which is Happiness. Love is unlimited and has no opposite. I really like the fact that Happiness belongs to us. So I choose to claim that Happiness and not be at all concerned with what is not real. Thanks Patricia for this joyous lesson.
