Learning to Treasure Truth

God’s Will does not oppose. It merely is. It is not God you have imprisoned in your plan to lose your Self. He does not know about a plan so alien to His Will. There was a need He did not understand, to which He gave an Answer [the Holy Spirit]. That is all. And you who have this Answer given you have need no more of anything but this.

Now do we live, for now we cannot die. The wish for death is answered, and the sight that looked upon it now has been replaced by vision which perceives that you are not what you pretend to be. One walks with you Who gently answers all your fears with this one merciful reply, “It is not so.” He points to all the gifts you have each time the thought of poverty oppresses you, and speaks of His Companionship when you perceive yourself as lonely and afraid.

Yet He reminds you still of one thing more you had forgotten. For His touch on you has made you like Himself. The gifts you have are not for you alone. What He has come to offer you, you now must learn to give. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 167, W-pI.167.10:1-12:4. See also ACIM Lesson 167 Insights.)

It is our belief in the reality of our bodies and the world that makes us feel lonely, lacking, fearful and guilty. Yet the Holy Spirit in our minds looks on what we see and teaches us, “It is not so.” The resistance we feel to learning this lesson comes from the belief that we would lose everything we treasure. But what we treasure is really nothing, just illusions. We need to treasure the truth instead of the denial of truth, which is the ego.

We have a kind and loving Teacher with infinite patience, always ready to help us learn to recognize what is true and what is false. As we recognize the false, we naturally let it go. No one hangs on to nothing when it is recognized as such.

We can return to the Life we live in God and know His gifts of Love and joy and peace by being vigilant to receive Holy Spirit’s lessons in freedom. We know that we have learned the lessons by sharing them with our brothers.
