Welcome back to A Course in Miracles. This is lesson 103. And the concept for this lesson is spirit. Being love is also happiness. Spirit, being love, is also happiness. Today's lesson is focusing on the association, that spirit equals love equals happiness. If you set the intention to live your life from Spirit, then you are synonymously making the intention to live your life from love. And additionally, today, we want to also add, you are also making the intention to live your life and happiness, all three are connected, all three are not separate. And therefore, if you have one, you have all three, it is that unity that we need to understand and believe, and therefore, adopt in our life. Law, love, happiness, spirit, all the same. You cannot have one without the other. If you follow this course, if you want that miracle, meaning you want that perception shift to where you live your life from love instead of fear. You are automatically saying that you want to live your life in connection with spirit, and you want to live your life and happiness, all three together. It is only when we start to believe that somehow we are separate from any one of those things, or that our life can't include any one of those things. Or even worse, we're afraid of having any one of those three, that we find ourselves with fear, with anxiety, with that imbalance in our life with that feeling of sadness and loss. I hate to keep reiterating in saying the word simple. But I don't know how else to put it it is simple. It is a conscious choice. It is simple. You say you want this, you actively work towards it. You say you want happiness, you say you want love, you say you want joy, then you need to reinforce and reconnect with spirit. Because when you have one, you automatically get the rest. And the work can be done. You will never separate from spirit in the first place. That's a complete falsehood. You've always been connected to spirit. So it's not going to be difficult if you want it to reconnect. All you're doing is removing that doubt from your own consciousness. All you're doing is removing that veil from your own eyes. The connection has always been there. You just have to make yourself aware of it again, and use it and dial in. And that's what we've been doing all along in this course through our mindful meditation practice. And that's what we're going to do again today. So today, I want you to focus every hour on the hour with saying, spirit. Being love is also happiness. I can have all three. Spirit, being love is also happiness. And I can have all three, reconnect today. Make that conscious choice. It is that simple. Have a great day and join us for the next lesson tomorrow.
