Release from Guilt

The body’s eyes see only form. They cannot see beyond what they were made to see. And they were made to look on error and not see past it.

These eyes, made not to see, will never see. For the idea they represent left not its maker [ego], and it is their maker that sees through them. What was its maker’s goal but not to see? For this the body’s eyes are perfect means, but not for seeing. See how the body’s eyes rest on externals and cannot go beyond. Watch how they stop at nothingness, unable to go beyond the form to meaning. Nothing [is] so blinding as perception of form. For sight of form means understanding has been obscured.

Let your awareness of your brother not be blocked by your perception of his sins and of his body. …You gave him not his holiness, but tried to see your sins in him to save yourself. And yet, his holiness is your forgiveness. Can you be saved by making sinful the one whose holiness is your salvation?

…reason sees a holy relationship as what it is; a common state of mind, where both give errors gladly to correction, that both may happily be healed as one. (A Course in Miracles, T-22.III.5:3-5;6;7:3,6-8;9:7. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Only what is true has meaning. When we understand meaning, we are accepting Reality as It is. The ego is the denial of Reality and made the body with eyes that cannot see reality. It is impossible that the body’s eyes see anything that is true, having been made to see only illusion. This fact is the key to release from sin and guilt. Because everything the body’s eyes see is illusion, everything it sees is untrue. This means all our perceptions with the body’s eyes, which we interpret based on our past learning, are mistaken.

We need to choose a different Interpreter. The Holy Spirit is not blinded by the appearance of forms. He sees past them to the true meaning that lies beyond them all. He sees Love’s innocence everywhere. As we choose His interpretation in place of our own, we are accepting the Holy Spirit’s gift of our salvation. We are learning that sin is not true and could never be true. Therefore guilt is never justified.

The Holy Spirit’s function is to show us that we remain as God created us — whole, complete and sinless, shining in the Light of God’s Love. Today we choose the Holy Spirit’s interpretation in place of our own.

Accepting the Reality of Present Love

If all but loving thoughts have been forgotten, what remains is eternal. And the transformed past is made like the present.

For the present is forgiveness.

It is still up to you to choose to join with truth or with illusion. But remember that to choose one is to let the other go. Which one you choose you will endow with beauty and reality, because the choice depends on which you value more. The spark of beauty or the veil of ugliness, the real world or the world of guilt and fear, truth or illusion, freedom or slavery—it is all the same. For you can never choose except between God and the ego. Thought systems are but true or false, and all their attributes come simply from what they are. Only the Thoughts of God [Love] are true. And all that follows from them comes from what they are, and is as true as is the holy Source from which they came. (A Course in Miracles, T-17.III.5:3-4;8:2;9. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The test of truth is perfect peace. If we experience anything but perfect peace, we have chosen illusion in place of truth. We always have instant feedback that tells us what we have chosen. In every instant we have the option to choose differently. Whether we experience a seemingly minor disturbance or a sense of terror, we still have a choice.

Ever present in our mind, the Holy Spirit is ready and willing to help us make the choice for truth. We need only be willing to offer the perception that is “threatening us” to Him, with willingness to receive His kind correction. He will strengthen our willingness with His. As we are receptive to His correction, He will show us the truth of What we are in place of the guilty shadows of the past that we have identified with. He will show us the changeless Love we are. He will show us that we remain united with our Creator, sharing His invulnerability and Love. He will show us the Reality of now.

Each time we practice this, the seeming reality of the illusions we have perceived will fade and the Reality of changeless Love will become more clear, for we are letting go of the past and accepting the eternal present.

Beyond Illusions Is Only Love

What can correct illusions but the truth? And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered errors disappear. They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because, without belief, they have no life. And so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

Truth does not come and go nor shift nor change, in this appearance now and then in that, evading capture and escaping grasp. It does not hide. It stands in open light, in obvious accessibility. It is impossible that anyone could seek it truly, and would not succeed. Today belongs to truth. Give truth its due, and it will give you yours. You were not meant to suffer and to die. Your Father wills these dreams be gone. Let truth correct them all.

We do not ask for what we do not have. We merely ask for what belongs to us, that we may recognize it as our own. Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth.

Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him. …It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are? (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 107,W-pI.107.1;6:1-7:3;8:1,4. See also ACIM Lesson 107 Insights.)

The world we perceive is a reflection of our belief. Belief makes illusions seem real, just as we react to images in a dream as if they were real. If the image is frightening, our heart begins to race as we begin to attempt to defend against what frightens us. Yet when we wake up from the dream, we realize that what frightened us in the dream was not real.

As we walk with our true Self, the Holy Spirit, we walk with the Light of Truth by our side. The Light of Truth shines away the false images, for they disappear as we recognize they are illusions.

The practice of remembering that Truth walks beside us in every moment helps us keep our mind open to seeing past the illusions. We overlook illusions because we recognize them for what they are. Beyond illusions is Love and nothing else. Without illusions we remember we are Love and nothing else. We remember the strength of Love’s changelessness and know there is nothing to fear.

Accepting No Substitutes for God’s Love

Let me remember love is happiness, and nothing else
brings joy. And so I choose to entertain no substitutes
for love.

Love is my heritage, and with it joy. These are the
gifts my Father gave to me. I would accept all that is
mine in truth.

Today I will accept God’s peace and joy, in glad
exchange for all the substitutes that I have made
for happiness and peace.

Let my own feeble voice be still, and let me hear the
mighty Voice for Truth Itself assure me that I am
God’s perfect Son.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 117,W-pI.117,118)

The ego is the idea that it is possible to make an alternative reality in place of the Reality of God’s Love. But the most it can do is make up empty images that have no meaning nor value of their own. Then it makes up stories to give these images some kind of value and meaning that we think we want. It is a grand deception that leaves us feeling dissatisfied and needing to keep searching to find meaning. But under the ego’s guidance we always search in illusions where meaning and value cannot be found.

The Holy Spirit in our minds will guide us to seek where value and meaning can be found — in the truth of God’s changeless Love. We accept His gifts of happiness and peace by letting go of giving meaning to the illusions of the ego world. This is forgiveness.

Today we choose to accept God’s gifts of Love, peace and joy by letting the Holy Spirit help us recognize the emptiness of the ego’s substitutes.

The Key to Release from Hell

I am the holy Son of God Himself.

Here is your declaration of release from bondage of the world. And here as well is all the world released. You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailer to the Son of God.

Yet what is it except a game you play in which Identity can be denied? You are as God created you. All else but this one thing is folly to believe. In this one thought is everyone set free. In this one truth are all illusions gone. In this one fact is sinlessness proclaimed to be forever part of everything, the central core of its existence and its guarantee of immortality.

Be glad today how very easily is hell undone. You need but tell yourself:

I am the holy Son of God Himself. I cannot suffer,
cannot be in pain; I cannot suffer loss, nor fail to do
all that salvation asks.

And in that thought is everything you look on wholly changed.

You are the holy Son of God Himself. Remember this, and all the world is free. Remember this, and earth and Heaven are one. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 191,W-pI.191.1:1-3;4;7;11:6-8. See also ACIM Lesson 191 Insights.)

The ego is dedicated to littleness, being the denial of our oneness with the magnitude of God. The only way to make this dedication seem real is to imprison our mind in a belief system of vulnerability, weakness and death. It is only our belief in it that gives it seeming reality.

This is why affirming that we are the Son of God Himself is the key to breaking free from the false belief in littleness and separation from God. What we believe, our state of mind, is reflected in all we perceive. Change what we believe and what is reflected back to us changes.

We have the key in our hand right now to free ourselves from hell and accept that we remain as God created us. We are His Son eternally. As we set ourselves free, the world we see is set free.

The Blessing of Accepting God’s Will as Ours

The miracle is much like the body in that both are learning aids for facilitating a state in which they become unnecessary. When spirit’s original state of direct communication is reached, neither the body nor the miracle serves any purpose.

Whatever is true is eternal, and cannot change or be changed. Spirit is therefore unalterable because it is already perfect, but the mind can elect what it chooses to serve. The only limit put on its choice is that it cannot serve two masters. If it elects to do so, the mind can become the medium by which spirit creates along the line of its own creation. If it does not freely elect to do so, it retains its creative potential but places itself under tyrannous rather than Authoritative control. As a result it imprisons, because such are the dictates of tyrants. To change your mind means to place it at the disposal of true Authority.

The miracle is a sign that the mind has chosen to be led by me in Christ’s service. The abundance of Christ is the natural result of choosing to follow Him. (A Course in Miracles, T-1.V.1:1-2;5:1-6:2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Because God is the Source of Authority for all His Creation, the Sonship is under the Authority of God. This is the same as saying the Will of God and the Will of the Sonship are one and the same. Our true Will is to extend the changeless, eternal Love of God equally to all without limitation of any kind. As we accept our true Will, we experience the indescribable joy of free-flowing Love.

Tyranny is cruel and oppressive rule without legal authority. If we choose the tyranny of the ego thought system of separation, limitation and lack, we are accepting a “leader” that is in violation of the Law of God: Only changeless Love is real. Yet we never lose the fact that we are Love and remain united with our Creator. We can change our mind and accept our true Will, which is one with God’s Will.

The miracle occurs when we choose to be led by the Holy Spirit. He uses the body as a learning aid to teach us that we do not want the ego’s rule. We really want to remember that we are Love and nothing else. We really want to join with the Love in all our brothers. In this joining we experience the abundance of limitless Love. We are free to extend Love without limit and experience all Its blessing.

God’s Strength Is Ours

There is a light in you which cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you.

The light in you is what the universe longs to behold. All living things are still before you, for they recognize Who walks with you. The light you carry is their own. And thus they see in you their holiness, saluting you as savior and as God. Accept their reverence, for it is due to Holiness Itself, which walks with you, transforming in Its gentle light all things unto Its likeness and Its purity.

“Who walks with me?” This question should be asked a thousand times a day, till certainty has ended doubting and established peace. Today let doubting cease. God speaks for you in answering your question with these words:

I walk with God in perfect holiness. I light the world,
I light my mind and all the minds which God created
one with me.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 156,W-pI.156.4:1;5;8. See also ACIM Lesson 156 Insights.)

The Source of all fear and guilt is the belief that we are separate from God’s eternal, changeless Love. This belief makes a barrier that hides the Light of Love that is us, leaving us in the darkness. We cannot see the truth in this darkness and so the ego thought system populates it with made up images that seem to be beyond our control. We seem to be vulnerable to events in the world. Yet it is only shadow figures with no substance and no meaning of their own. Only belief makes them seem to have an effect on us.

Beyond the self-made barrier against Love, the Light shines unencumbered and unaffected by this made up barrier. We are the Light, God’s Creation. This Light is with us always, no matter how much we blind ourselves by our beliefs. We walk with God; it is impossible to be without Him. The more we remind ourselves of this truth, the safer and more peaceful we will feel. We remember that all of God’s strength is ours. His changelessness is ours. His Love surrounds us and protects us always, now and forever. And we give thanks.

Remembering God’s Love

The Holy Spirit takes you gently by the hand, and retraces with you your mad journey outside yourself, leading you gently back to the truth and safety within. He brings all your insane projections and the wild substitutions that you have placed outside you to the truth. Thus He reverses the course of insanity and restores you to reason.

In your relationship with your brother, where [the Holy Spirit] has taken charge of everything at your request, He has set the course inward to the truth you share. In the mad world outside you nothing can be shared but only substituted, and sharing and substituting have nothing in common in reality. Within yourself you love your brother with a perfect love. Here is holy ground, in which no substitution can enter, and where only the truth in your brother can abide. Here you are joined in God, as much together as you are with Him. The original error has not entered here, nor ever will. Here is the radiant truth, to which the Holy Spirit has committed your relationship. Let Him bring it here, where you would have it be. Give Him but a little faith in your brother, to help Him show you that no substitute you made for Heaven can keep you from it.

In you there is no separation, and no substitute can keep you from your brother. Your reality was God’s creation, and has no substitute. You are so firmly joined in truth that only God is there. And He would never accept something else instead of you. He loves you both, equally and as one. And as He loves you, so you are. You are not joined together in illusions, but in the Thought so holy and so perfect that illusions cannot remain to darken the holy place in which you stand together. God is with you, my brother. Let us join in Him in peace and gratitude, and accept His gift as our most holy and perfect reality, which we share in Him. (A Course in Miracles, T-18.I.7:3-10:9. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

We all stand together as one in the holiness of God. His holiness created us as holy as Himself. The appearance of billions of bodies with separate identities is just a fragmented projection of the mad idea that it is possible to be separate from our Creator. The truth that unites us all as one is the Love of God, given equally to all.

When we are willing to put the Holy Spirit in charge of all our relationships, He will teach us to see past the fragmented images to the one Love that is in all everywhere. It is this vision that will awaken us from the dream, leading us to the real world where all is forgiven. No thought of judgment enters here, for the innocence of Love is seen as all that is real. From this place of total acceptance of the truth, we awaken to the Heaven of God’s Love we never left in truth.

Today we choose to put the Holy Spirit in charge of all our relationships.

Our Resurrection Is the Remembrance of Love

Very simply, the resurrection is the overcoming or surmounting of death. It is a reawakening or a rebirth; a change of mind about the meaning of the world. It is the acceptance of the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world’s purpose; the acceptance of the Atonement for oneself. It is the end of dreams of misery, and the glad awareness of the Holy Spirit’s final dream. …[The resurrection] is the invitation to God to take His final step. It is the relinquishment of all other purposes, all other interests, all other wishes and all other concerns. It is the single desire of the Son for the Father.

Now there are no distinctions. Differences have disappeared and Love looks on Itself. What further sight is needed? What remains that vision could accomplish? We have seen the face of Christ, His sinlessness, His Love behind all forms, beyond all purposes. Holy are we because His Holiness has set us free indeed! And we accept His Holiness as ours; as it is. As God created us so will we be forever and forever, and we wish for nothing but His Will to be our own. Illusions of another will are lost, for unity of purpose has been found.

These things await us all, but we are not prepared as yet to welcome them with joy. As long as any mind remains possessed of evil dreams [of separation], the thought of hell is real. God’s teachers have the goal of wakening the minds of those asleep, and seeing there the vision of Christ’s face to take the place of what they dream. The thought of murder [separation] is replaced with blessing. Judgment is laid by, and given Him [the Holy Spirit] Whose function judgment is. And in His Final Judgment is restored the truth about the holy Son of God. (A Course in Miracles, M-28.1;5:1-6:6)

What is the final dream that leads us to awaken to the truth that we remain Love as God created us? It is the dream of complete forgiveness. It is when we relinquish all our judgments to the Holy Spirit and accept His judgment in their place.

His judgment is simple: Only Love is Real; God’s Son is Love and nothing else. The acceptance of Holy Spirit’s judgment in place of our own resurrects us from the dream of separation and death. It returns us to awareness of the Life we live in God.

Today we welcome the Holy Spirit’s judgment in place of our own.

Complete Forgiveness

Perhaps it is not yet quite clear to you that each decision that you make is one between a grievance and a miracle. Each grievance stands like a dark shield of hate before the miracle it would conceal. And as you raise it up before your eyes, you will not see the miracle beyond. Yet all the while it waits for you in light, but you behold your grievances instead.

Then let us ask of Him Who knows this Son of God in his reality and truth, that we may look on him a different way, and see our savior shining in the light of true forgiveness, given unto us. We ask Him in the holy Name of God and of His Son, as holy as Himself:

Let me behold my savior in this one You have appointed as the one for me to ask to lead me to the holy light in which he stands, that I may join with him.

The body’s eyes are closed, and as you think of him who grieved you, let your mind be shown the light in him beyond your grievances.” (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 78,W-pI.78.1;7. See also ACIM Lesson 78 Insights.)

The body’s eyes cannot see the Light of the Son of God in our brothers. The Light of God’s Son is seen in the Mind we share with God. It is through the Holy Spirit in our mind that we are shown the truth in our brothers and ourselves.

The Holy Spirit teaches us that the images of the world are meaningless, have no value and can do no harm. Forgiveness is accomplished as we lay aside the images of the world because we have learned the images do nothing.

As we withdraw the value we have placed on the world’s images, our grievances fade away and we see the Light of God’s Son. As this Light shines upon us, we realize It is our own as well. There is only one Light. The adversary we thought stood before us is now recognized as our one Self, united in Love. Forgiveness is complete.

Our Inner Place of Peace

To do anything involves the body. And if you recognize you need do nothing, you have withdrawn the body’s value from your mind. Here is the quick and open door through which you slip past centuries of effort, and escape from time. This is the way in which sin loses all attraction right now. For here is time denied, and past and future gone. Who needs do nothing has no need for time. To do nothing is to rest, and make a place within you where the activity of the body ceases to demand attention. Into this place the Holy Spirit comes, and there abides. He will remain when you forget, and the body’s activities return to occupy your conscious mind.

Yet there will always be this place of rest to which you can return. And you will be more aware of this quiet center of the storm than all its raging activity. This quiet center, in which you do nothing, will remain with you, giving you rest in the midst of every busy doing on which you are sent. For from this center will you be directed how to use the body sinlessly. It is this center, from which the body is absent, that will keep it so in your awareness of it. (A Course in Miracles,T-18.VII.7-8. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

We have been given the means to awaken from the dream of separation with all its fear and guilt. The practice of frequently pausing to go to the center of peace within opens our awareness to the Holy Spirit’s inspiration. It is helpful to start the day with a time when you quiet your mind by setting aside thoughts of activities of the day, of bodily concerns and of thoughts about the past or future.

The quiet center of peace is in the now moment. As we let our minds quiet, we become aware of the Holy Spirit in our mind. We open to His perception, Christ’s vision. We open to His Voice to guide us as we return to the busy doing we are sent on in the service of awakening.

The practice of frequently pausing during the day to step back and enter the place of peace again becomes easier. The more we practice this, making it a habit, the more we use the body for the Holy Spirit’s holy purpose instead of the ego’s.

The Path to Joy and Peace

The real world is a symbol, like the rest of what perception offers. Yet it stands for what is opposite to what you made. Your world is seen through eyes of fear, and brings the witnesses of terror to your mind. The real world cannot be perceived except through eyes forgiveness blesses, so they see a world where terror is impossible, and witnesses to fear can not be found.

The real world holds a counterpart for each unhappy thought reflected in your world; a sure correction for the sights of fear and sounds of battle which your world contains. The real world shows a world seen differently, through quiet eyes and with a mind at peace. Nothing but rest is there. There are no cries of pain and sorrow heard, for nothing there remains outside forgiveness. And the sights are gentle. Only happy sights and sounds can reach the mind that has forgiven itself.

The real world signifies the end of time, for its perception makes time purposeless. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Part II, Section 8,W-pII.8.1-2;4:3. See also ACIM Lesson 291 Insights.)

The belief in time is part of the ego thought system of separation. Guilt depends on time to make what happened in the past seem real. Time makes it seem that the past comes with us. We use the past to interpret what we perceive in the present. This makes the reality of the present invisible to us, for we have covered it with images from the past.

As we learn to forgive the past, to let it go, the basis for guilt fades. We begin to see through the shadows of guilt to the ever present changeless Light of Love. Love sees only innocence, for Love neither harms nor can be harmed. Love’s changelessness maintains its innocence.

The Holy Spirit is our Guide to forgiveness. He sees our projections of guilt and fear, but does not believe them. As we are willing to accept His vision in place of our perception, we learn that the past is gone. It cannot touch us, for it does not exist. As this becomes stronger in our awareness, the perception of the real world of happiness and peace replaces the ego’s world of guilt and fear.

Today we practice keeping our minds open to receive the Holy Spirit’s vision in place of our perceptions. It is the path to joy and peace.

Welcoming the Holy Spirit’s True Perception

All healing is release from the past. That is why the Holy Spirit is the only Healer. He teaches that the past does not exist, a fact which belongs to the sphere of knowledge, and which therefore no one in the world can know. It would indeed be impossible to be in the world with this knowledge [that the past does not exist]. For the mind that knows this unequivocally knows also it dwells in eternity, and utilizes no perception at all. It therefore does not consider where it is, because the concept “where” does not mean anything to it. It knows that it is everywhere, just as it has everything, and forever.

This is the miracle of creation; that it is one forever. Every miracle you offer to the Son of God is but the true perception of one aspect of the whole. Though every aspect is the whole, you cannot know this until you see that every aspect is the same, perceived in the same light and therefore one. Everyone seen without the past thus brings you nearer to the end of time by bringing healed and healing sight into the darkness, and enabling the world to see. For light must come into the darkened world to make Christ’s vision possible even here. Help Him to give His gift of light to all who think they wander in the darkness, and let Him gather them into His quiet sight that makes them one. (A Course in Miracles,T-13.VIII.1;5. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Our belief in time makes knowledge of our unity in God’s Love impossible. Time is an attempt to introduce separation into eternity. In the world we bring our past experience into everything we perceive. No form in the world would have meaning to us without past experience.

From infancy we learn to interpret what forms mean. The process of giving meaning to form continues with our formal education and beyond through our day-to-day experiences. Yet all this learning simply reinforces the seeming reality of our perceptions, which are built upon the past.

The Holy Spirit teaches a different lesson. By teaching us to see the Light of Love everywhere, to see with Christ’s vision, we learn to see the oneness of Love. The perception of differences based on the past fades. More and more we see the sameness of Love’s oneness in all things, everywhere. The past loses its importance in our perception. Without the past our perception is healed and our mind becomes unified in the Love of God.

Today we practice accepting the Holy Spirit’s Light to bring clarity to our perceptions that we may have true perception.

How to Become Miracle Minded

Specialness is a lack of trust in anyone except yourself. Faith is invested in yourself alone.

What could the purpose of the body be but specialness? And it is this that makes it frail and helpless in its own defense. [The body] was conceived to make you frail and helpless. The goal of separation is its curse. Yet bodies have no goal. Purpose is of the mind. And minds can change as they desire. What [minds] are, and all their attributes, they cannot change. But what [mnds] hold as purpose can be changed, and body states must shift accordingly. Of itself the body can do nothing. See it as means to hurt, and it is hurt. See it as means to heal, and it is healed.

The purpose of attack is in the mind, and its effects are felt but where it is [in the mind]. Nor is the mind limited; so must it be that harmful purpose hurts the mind as one. Nothing could make less sense to specialness. Nothing could make more sense to miracles. For miracles are merely change of purpose from hurt to healing. This shift in purpose does “endanger” specialness, but only in the sense that all illusions are “threatened” by the truth. [Illusions] will not stand before [truth].

Only this is certain in this shifting world that has no meaning in reality: When peace is not with you entirely, and when you suffer pain of any kind, you have beheld some sin within your brother, and have rejoiced at what you thought was there. (A Course in Miracles,T-24.IV.1:1;2;3:5-11;5:2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Any lack of peace is a sure sign that we have seen guilt in a brother, which is a projection of guilt we see in ourselves. If we are mindful of any disturbance to our peace, we can use this disturbance to remind ourselves to ask for Holy Spirit’s help to forgive.

As we bring our perceptions to the Holy Spirit, with willingness to receive His replacement, we will learn to see past the ego’s images of separation to the eternal presence of limitless Love. We will see past perceptions of guilt to the recognition of the reality of innocence. This is how we give the body the purpose of healing in place of the ego’s purpose to harm. This is how we become miracle minded.

Accepting Love’s Attributes as Our Own

Love created me like Itself.

Holiness created me holy.
Kindness created me kind.
Helpfulness created me helpful.
Perfection created me perfect.

Any attribute which is in accord with God as He defines Himself is appropriate for use. We are trying today to undo your definition of God and replace it with His Own. We are also trying to emphasize that you are part of His definition of Himself.

…reach past all your images and preconceptions about yourself to the truth in you. If Love created you like Itself, this Self must be in you. And somewhere in your mind It is there for you to find.

You need to hear the truth about yourself as frequently as possible, because your mind is so preoccupied with false self-images.

This is the Voice for God, reminding you of your Father and of your Self. This is the Voice of truth, replacing everything that the ego tells you about yourself with the simple truth about the Son of God. You were created by Love like Itself. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 67,W-pI.67.2:3-9;3:3;5:2;6:2-4. See also ACIM Lesson 67 Insights.)

The image of a body that we identify as our self is a false image. It was not created by Love, Which has no form nor distinctions of any kind. Love is one and universal. If Love created us like Itself, then we all must be united as one in Love’s oneness. And we must have all of Love’s attributes. This only seems hard to believe because we are so heavily invested in being a separate, limited identity, defined by the body and what we believe the body experiences.

Today’s practice is helping us to identify with our the attributes of our true Self. As we accept this truth about ourselves, we become our brothers’ savior, for we demonstrate to our brothers that we are untied in Love. This is how we save the world from its misperceptions.
