Forgiveness Is the Pathway Home

Have you not wondered what the world is really like; how it would look through happy eyes? The world you see is but a judgment on yourself. It is not there at all. Yet judgment lays a sentence on it, justifies it and makes it real. Such is the world you see; a judgment on yourself, and made by you. This sickly picture of yourself is carefully preserved by the ego, whose image it is and which it loves, and placed outside you in the world. And to this world must you adjust as long as you believe this picture is outside, and has you at its mercy. This world is merciless, and were it outside you, you should indeed be fearful. Yet it was you who made it merciless, and now if mercilessness seems to look back at you, it can be corrected.

Who in a holy relationship can long remain unholy? The world the holy see is one with them, just as the world the ego looks upon is like itself. The world the holy see is beautiful because they see their innocence in it.

Such is my will for you and your brother, and for each of you for one another and for himself. Here there is only holiness and joining without limit. For what is Heaven but union, direct and perfect, and without the veil of fear upon it? Here are we one, looking with perfect gentleness upon each other and on ourselves. Here all thoughts of any separation between us become impossible. You who were a prisoner in separation are now made free in Paradise. And here would I unite with you, my friend, my brother and my Self.

The innocent see safety, and the pure in heart see God within His Son, and look unto the Son to lead them to the Father. (A Course in Miracles, T-20.III.5:-6:3;10;11:3. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Happy eyes are forgiving eyes. It is judgment that makes us fearful, angry and unhappy. Unhappiness is a sign that we are not accepting God’s Will for us, which is perfect happiness. It means that we are believing in a false image of ourselves as separate from Love’s holiness (oneness).

To forgive is to let go of belief in a false image. A false image has no power to affect reality. Belief only seems to draw a veil across the truth of What we are — God’s holy Son. When belief is let go, the veil disappears, revealing our innocence and showing us a beautiful world of kindness, free of fear and united in Love. We see our brother as our one Self at home in Paradise. Forgiveness is the pathway Home.
