Freeing Ourselves from Limitation

This world is not where you belong. You are a stranger here. But it is given you to find the means whereby the world no longer seems to be a prison house or jail for anyone.

But you must change your mind about the purpose of the world, if you would find escape. You will be bound till all the world is seen by you as blessed, and everyone made free of your mistakes and honored as he is.

Peace is the bridge that everyone will cross, to leave this world behind. But peace begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond. Peace is the answer to conflicting goals, to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits, and meaningless endeavors. Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God.

And you look up and on toward Heaven, with the body’s eyes but serving for an instant longer now. Peace is already recognized at last, and you can feel its soft embrace surround your heart and mind with comfort and with love.

For peace is union, if it be of God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 200,W-pI.200.4:3-5;5:2-3;8;10:5-6;11:6. See also ACIM Lesson 200 Insights.)

While we believe we are limited to a body, we will project that belief on what we see, perceiving other bodies and forms as real. By letting go of this projection, we free ourselves to look past the projections and see the unity of Love, which we share with All That is. In this perfect oneness, conflict does not exist and so there is perfect peace.

Forgiveness — letting go of the false image of a separate identity — is the means to welcome the peace of God. Judgment and peace cannot coexist. Judgment always involves conflicting purposes and goals. The oneness of Love has only one purpose — to extend Love. As we join with Love’s oneness, we find the peace and joy of God.  We extend Love to all.
