“I give the miracles I have received.”
Before I can give a miracle, I must receive a miracle. Receiving a miracle is receiving Christ’s vision. Christ’s vision provides the bridge by which my mind, which has been lost in separation, is returned back to the truth. Christ’s vision brings an awareness of the truth of the Light behind every form. Christ’s vision reminds me all is still as God created It. All are innocent. All are still Love in the Mind of God.
Christ’s vision is the gift of the Holy Spirit. To receive Christ’s vision I must be open to receiving the truth and willing to let go of illusions. I must be willing to relax my hold on what I think is real. I must be willing to soften and allow the miracle to be given me. I must be open to Holy Spirit’s healing perspective. The Holy Spirit heals all thoughts of lack, sickness, division or differences of any kind. The Holy Spirit brings me peace and a remembrance of the everlasting Love we all are.
With practice, my willingness is growing day by day to be open to receive the miracle of Christ’s vision from the Holy Spirit. There is no gift more important to receive and then give. I continue this process of practice again today, knowing that if I am truly willing I will receive Christ’s vision and I will give as I receive.
Christ’s vision is a dream of awakening, a dream of a forgiven world. It does not require that I transcend the world to receive it. But rather it is the means to transcend the world. Christ’s vision shows me a reflection of Heaven so clear that it is a simple and easy step from His vision to the reality of Heaven. As it told us in yesterday’s lesson, we can learn to see with Christ’s vision and we can teach this vision to others. In fact this is the only meaningful purpose we can have in this world.
This lesson reinforces that to know I have His vision, I must give it. The miracle is the exchange of the perception of guilt for the perception of innocence. As I see innocence in my brother, I recognize it in myself. As I see innocence in myself, I reinforce it and strengthen it by seeing it in my brother. I always receive what I give. Christ’s vision shows me the call for Love in expressions of anger and fear. It inspires me to answer the call with Love. As I answer with Love, I teach myself that I am Love and that I am safe.
The vision of Christ brings joy and peace to my heart. It shows me a world of harmlessness. It shows me the eternal Love that is everywhere, in everything and is What I am. With Christ’s vision I do not mistake the body for the Son God created. With His vision, form becomes useful only as a means to communicate that all is forgiven and only Love is real. It is a gift I give myself and all the world, for we are one. My heart is lifted in gratitude.
