I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.

* In Heaven where I know I AM in TRUTH, yes.

* However, that does not mean that my body is not in a place of danger and that my mind is not subject to temptation. The ONLY exception is that within the Atonement I know that it is ALL UNREAL and of no ‘lasting’ consequence.

* I want to listen to this lesson carefully, especially in the USA in 2024 and on behalf of the world that is watching us.

1. Fear is a stranger to the ways of love. ²Identify with fear, and you will be a stranger to yourself. ³And thus you are unknown to you. ⁴What is your Self remains an alien to the part of you which thinks that it is real, but different from yourself. ⁵Who could be sane in such a circumstance? ⁶Who but a madman could believe he is what he is not, and judge against himself?

* THIS is where the ego=god mentality lives.

2. There is a stranger in our midst, who comes from an idea so foreign to the truth he speaks a different language, looks upon a world truth does not know, and understands what truth regards as senseless. ²Stranger yet, he does not recognize to whom he comes, and yet maintains his home belongs to him, while he is alien now who is at home. ³And yet, how easy it would be to say, “This is my home. ⁴Here I belong, and will not leave because a madman says I must.”
