See the Love Through Christ’s Vision

Today my practice is to accept Christ’s vision, asking myself frequently, “How does Christ’s vision see this circumstance?” Asking this question helps me step back from the ego’s way of seeing the world and open to the Light of truth.

Unless I am willing to open to the Light of truth, I cannot be helpful to myself or the Sonship. This is a simple practice, but requires that I stay vigilant to make opening to the truth my highest priority. The more I am consistent with this practice, the easier it becomes. And I give thanks.

A Course in Miracles tells me that I am the Light of the world. This does not mean that the image of a separate identity in a body is the Light of the world. It means the truth of what I am, the extension of God’s Love, is the Light of the world.

The way I bring this Light to the world is through forgiveness, letting go of the idea of being a separate identity. When I allow myself to accept Christ’s vision, I see the Love that is everywhere, looking past appearances of individuality.

Today as I practice seeing with the vision of Christ, the appearances of the world fade and I see the Light of truth shining back to me everywhere I look. This is my practice today.

In God’s Gratitude I Heal

Walk, then, in gratitude the way of love. For hatred is forgotten when we lay comparisons aside. What more remains as obstacles to peace? The fear of God is now undone at last, and we forgive without comparing. Thus we cannot choose to overlook some things, and yet retain some other things still locked away as “sins.” When your forgiveness is complete you will have total gratitude, for you will see that everything has earned the right to love by being loving, even as your Self.

Our gratitude will pave the way to Him, and shorten our learning time by more than you could ever dream of. Gratitude goes hand in hand with love, and where one is the other must be found. For gratitude is but an aspect of the Love which is the Source of all creation. God gives thanks to you, His Son, for being what you are; His Own completion and the Source of love, along with Him. Your gratitude to Him is one with His to you. For love can walk no road except the way of gratitude, and thus we go who walk the way to God. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.195.8,10)

With forgiveness comes gratitude. I am never grateful for someone I judge. But when I have let go of judgment, I see the Love that is always there, and my heart is filled with gratitude. It is the natural response to the blessing that comes with joining with the Love that is our one Self, at Home in Love. The practice of applying ACIM in my life teaches me to be less judgmental, more forgiving. This clears the way for me to see past appearances to the reality of ever present Love. The more I forgive, the happier I am. Every day is a day of thanksgiving as I forgive.


Opening to God’s gratitude lifts the veil of my belief in separation. Here I am returned to oneness. Here I see that my brother is not a body. Here I see that it has merely been a projection that came with my belief in separate bodies. As I allow the veil to be lifted, the fact that nothing has happened to change God’s one Son returns to my awareness. And gratitude for every brother replaces the mistaken belief in separation. As I accept God’s gratitude I am healed.

Letting Holy Spirit Show the Way

A Course in Miracles tells us to ask of everything, “What is this for?” It’s important not to try to answer this question on our own. The ego can suggest some very plausible purposes for many things. But they are disguises for the ego’s primary goal to maintain guilt.

Asking this question interrupts the ego’s trance script so that we can turn to the Holy Spirit to receive His purpose in place of the ego’s. Applied this way, the question becomes a stepping stone to awakening. It becomes a means for undoing the illusion that the forms in this world have a meaning or value.

The Holy Spirit will always show us that the only real content is Love. It will show us that forgiveness, Love’s reflection in this world, is how we shift from following the ego’s purpose to following the Holy Spirit’s purpose.

Today I will practice asking of everything, “What is this for?” with a willingness to receive Holy Spirit’s answer.

Today is for the practice of stepping back and letting Holy Spirit show the way.

The Strength of God Sees Past Appearances

It is God’s strength in you that is the light in which you see… Strength overlooks these things [weakness, lack] by seeing past appearances. It keeps its steady gaze upon the light that lies beyond [appearances]. …In darkness you perceive a self that is not there. Strength is the truth about you…. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.92.3:1,4:1-2,6-7)

My focus for today is to allow God’s strength in me to see past appearances to the truth. When thoughts of weakness and limitation come up, my job today is to hand these thoughts over to God’s strength in me that they may be undone. God’s strength is there when I am willing to accept it. Accepting God’s strength is my practice for today.


It is only when I believe I am weak that I think I need to protect myself. When I accept God’s strength in me, I know that there is nothing to defend against. Today I ask Holy Spirit to help me recognize thoughts of weakness and to help me see past these false appearances to the Light that is in me and everywhere. This practice makes today an opportunity to continue my journey to the Home where I belong.

I Go to My Inner Place of Peace

From the center of peace within, I see a world filled with friends. Everyone is recognized as my brother, one with me, sharing the same Father. I feel perfectly safe because nothing is seen as outside of me. My heart is filled with joy because all my needs are met — I accept all of God’s Love; I need nothing else. From this place of peace I see only innocence and I remember Who I am.

Receiving Holy Spirit’s Christ’s Vision

Nothing is more important than seeing with the eyes of Christ today. The truth is true and nothing else is true. Everyone that I see in this dream is in truth God’s perfect Love and nothing else.

Making this my highest priority is what today is for — receiving Holy Spirit’s Christ’s vision. Here I see that Christ’s vision is shared with everyone. Here I am able to see past the clouds of individuality to the oneness of God’s Love. And for this I give thanks.


Christ’s vision sees no one as a body. It sees that only Love is real and that everyone is that Love. Christ’s vision does not judge, for it sees with the eyes of Love which does not condemn. This is my practice for today.

Peace First

The peace of God is everything I want. The peace of God is my one goal; the aim of all my living here, the end I seek, my purpose and my function and my life, while I abide where I am not at home. (A Course in Miracles W-pI.205.1:2-3)

Because peace is an attribute of Love, the practice of making peace my priority opens the door to welcome the experience of Love. It opens my mind to the Light that shows me that only Love is real. It shows me that all images that I perceive in the world of dreams have no substance and no effect. Only Love is real. With peace as my one goal, I am set firmly on the path Home, where my true Self resides and never left. This is how I make today the means to awaken to the truth of What I am.
