(4 of 10) This self-deception concerning the power of outside forces or influences to affect you is one of the great obstacles to the realization of one’s good. While living in the physical world, souls can become obsessed with the illusionary powers of physical or social or emotional factors in their environment. The lesson, of course, is that each person is in control of whether or not this self-deception takes place. When you assign power to anything other than the God power within you (which is the only true power in the universe), you are creating the self-deception.

“Think of your peace as a vast, unending reservoir of silence. It is, in fact, beyond the scope of a reservoir, because it is unending. The analogy of the peace at the bottom of the ocean, which is constant even though the surface of the ocean is in constant turmoil, is excellent, but the only flaw in it is that oceans have shoresthey come to an end. The peace that is yours has no limitations whatsoever. It is grander than the universe. You cannot understand this now, but you will.

“Drawing on that peace is as simple and uncomplicated as opening a door. If you are in a house that is completely closed up and the air has become stale and musty, and then you open the front door and allow the fresh, clean air to come in, it takes very little time for the old to be replaced by the new. Unless you close the door again and stop the flow, you will be breathing the clean air. And even if you do close the door, you still will benefit from the new air that has entered.”
