What we think we give up is really nothing (no-thing). Our self made resentments, concepts, and many ideas are just that made out of self. God is our only reality. The power of love sets us free from the idols we made. Idols are nothing~
1Corinthians 8:4~So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that "An idol is nothing at all in the world" and that "There is no God but one."
A Course in Miracles
I can give up but what was never real.
I sacrifice illusions; nothing more. And as illusions go I find the gifts illusions tried to hide, awaiting me in shining welcome, and in readiness to give God's ancient messages to me. His memory abides in every gift that I receive of Him. And every dream serves only to conceal the Self which is God's only Son, the likeness of Himself, the Holy One Who still abides in Him forever, as He still abides in me.
Father, to You all sacrifice remains forever inconceivable. And so I cannot sacrifice except in dreams. As You created me, I can give up nothing You gave me. What You did not give has no reality. What loss can I anticipate except the loss of fear, and the return of love into my mind?
Love with passion
