“Canterò le mie canzoni per la strada
ed affronterò la vita a muso duro
un guerriero senza patria e senza spada
con un piede nel passato
e lo sguardo dritto e aperto nel futuro.
E non so se avrò gli amici a farmi il coro
o se avrò soltanto volti sconosciuti
canterò le mie canzoni a tutti loro
e alla fine della strada
potrò dire che i miei giorni li ho vissuti.”

ACIM Lesson 309
I will not fear to look within today.
Within me is eternal innocence, because it is God’s Will that it be there forever and forever. I, His Son, whose will is limitless as is His Own, can will no change in this. For to deny my Father’s Will is to deny my own. To look within is but to find my will as God created it, and as it is. I fear to look within because I think I made another will that is not true, and made it real. Yet it has no effects. Within me is the Holiness of God. Within me is the memory of Him.
The step I take today, my Father, is my sure release from idle dreams of sin. Your altar stands serene and undefiled. It is the holy altar to my Self, and there I find my true Identity.
