ACIM Workbook Lesson 297 Insights

“Forgiveness is the only gift I give.”

“Grace” is a term that has been difficult for me to understand. Perhaps that’s a reflection of resistance. Today God’s grace means to me that He is true to Himself. He would not change the oneness of His eternal Love to meet the demand of the ego’s insane wish to have more Love than another. God could not divide Himself and still remain Himself. This is God’s grace to me at this moment.

Because of His grace, I can trust God. I know that He is always the same, forever Love. I know that He always gives me all of His Love as He does to all of His creations. I know that I can count on Him to never withhold His Love or limit It in any way, because if He did so, He would not be true to Himself. And God is always true to Himself. That is His grace. Because of it, God is my rock and my strength. He is my Source and my Identity. He is my joy and my peace. In Him is my freedom from all fear and all guilt. In Him is my perfect safety. All this is mine because of the grace of God’s changelessness. Thank You God for Your grace. I accept Your blessing by offering Your blessing to all. I accept Your peace by offering it to everyone. I accept salvation from You by offering it to the world. I do this by looking past the illusions of form and seeing the innocence You see in me.


Forgiveness means allowing my perceptions to be corrected by the Holy Spirit. I am dreaming about having a separate identity that is attached to a body. This dream is not true. Forgiveness is letting go of the false ideas held within the dream. So forgiveness is a constant process that happens everyday of my “life.” It is a constant letting go process. It is a letting go of what never was or ever could be.

I understand that it is a gradual process. I understand that forgiveness is a gift to myself and a gift to the world. As I receive the gift of forgiveness from the Holy Spirit, I give this gift of healed perception to the world.

I have been mistaken about what I thought I was and what I thought the world was. What I have valued in the past has been false and meant nothing. As I continue to practice opening my mind to have every thought transformed by the Holy Spirit, I free myself and the world from the chains of limitation, lack and loss, because we are one.

Each day is a continuous practice in forgiveness. Only the Holy Spirit knows how to heal my mind. Today I would step back and not think I know anything on my own. I would practice seeing past illusions to the truth, with Holy Spirit’s help. I would practice looking through Christ’s eyes and letting my mind be healed today. In this way, forgiveness is the only gift I receive and the only gift I give.
