Seeing Love’s Reflection in the World

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability. How can I know who I am when I see myself as under constant attack? Pain, illness, loss, age and death seem to threaten me. All my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control. Yet perfect security and complete fulfillment are my inheritance.

Recognizing that what I see reflects what I think I am, I realize that vision is my greatest need. The world I see attests to the fearful nature of the self-image I have made. If I would remember who I am, it is essential that I let this image of myself go.

The world I see holds my fearful self-image in place, and guarantees its continuance. While I see the world as I see it now, truth cannot enter my awareness. I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God.

God is still everywhere and in everything forever. And we who are part of Him will yet look past all appearances, and recognize the truth beyond them all.

In my own mind, behind all my insane thoughts of separation and attack, is the knowledge that all is one forever. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 56,W-pI.56.1:1-5;2:2-4;3:2-4;4:5-6;5:2. See also ACIM Lesson 56 Insights.)

Identifying with an image of a body as what we are is a self-imposed limitation. It leaves us feeling alone and separate and without Love, for Love cannot be limited. Believing we are without Love, we search constantly to find what we feel is missing. But it cannot be found in the world we see. We need to open our minds to a different way of seeing that does not use the body’s perceptions.

The Holy Spirit in our mind will help us see with the vision of our true Self. This vision shows us the Love we are and the Love that is everywhere, without limit. This is our Reality. To know this reality, we must let go of identifying with a separate self-image. Our true Self is united with all Love everywhere. The will of our true Self is join with this Love and extend It always. This world is seen behind the images we have made.

We can practice remembering this as we meet or think of anyone by mentally saying to ourselves, “Beyond this appearance is the Light of Love. Let me see this Light as my Reality and know that I am Love.”
