Accepting the Gift of Healing

You must look upon your illusions and not keep them hidden, because they do not rest on their own foundation. In concealment they appear to [rest on their own foundation], and thus they seem to be self-sustained. This is the fundamental illusion on which the others rest. For beneath [the illusions], and concealed as long as they are hidden, is the loving mind that thought it made them in anger. And the pain in this mind is so apparent, when it is uncovered, that its need of healing cannot be denied. Not all the tricks and games you offer it can heal it, for here is the real crucifixion of God’s Son.

And yet he is not crucified. Here is both his pain and his healing, for the Holy Spirit’s vision is merciful and His remedy is quick. Do not hide suffering from His sight, but bring it gladly to Him. Lay before His eternal sanity all your hurt, and let Him heal you. Do not leave any spot of pain hidden from His light, and search your mind carefully for any thoughts you may fear to uncover. For He will heal every little thought you have kept to hurt you and cleanse it of its littleness, restoring it to the magnitude of God. (A Course in Miracles,T-13.III.6-7. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The Great Healer of all our pain, suffering, fear and guilt is in our mind, given us by our Creator. But He can heal only what we are willing to be healed. If we keep our guilt, fear, anger and hatred hidden, they cannot be healed.

Healing requires our willingness to accept it. We must be willing to give up the isolation of a separate identity. We must be willing to let go of the need to have special favor, something we keep for ourselves alone. God’s Love is total, given equally to all. The moment we attempt to limit Love, we have lost awareness of what Love is. Fear takes Its place in the illusion of separation in which competition and attack prevail. But only illusions can attack illusions. Illusions are simply projections of our belief in separation.

The source of all illusions is in our minds. And the means to heal all illusions is in our minds. We need only be willing to turn over all our pain and guilt to the Great Healer and accept the healing offered us.
