Bring Peace to the World Through Forgiveness

In peace I was created. And in peace do I remain. It is not given me to change my Self. How merciful is God my Father, that when He created me He gave me peace forever. Now I ask but to be what I am. And can this be denied me, when it is forever true?

Father, I seek the peace You gave as mine in my creation. What was given then must be here now, for my creation was apart from time, and still remains beyond all change. The peace in which Your Son was born into Your Mind is shining there unchanged. I am as You created me. I need but call on You to find the peace You gave. It is Your Will that gave it to Your Son. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 230, W-pII.230. See also ACIM Lesson 230 Insights.)

Because the world is a projection of the belief in separation, conflict in the world is inevitable and peace is impossible. Thankfully we have not lost our connection to the peace of God. He gave His peace to us when He created us as His one Son by extending His Thought of Love. The Thought of Love, our Identity, remains within God’s Mind, which is our Home.

Though we may seem to be lost in the dream of separation, God’s peace is still within us. We can make ourselves unaware of it, but we cannot lose it. What God creates cannot change, so we remain as we were created. It is fruitless to seek for peace within the world, but it is our function to bring peace to the world.

We do this with the daily practice of letting go of our guilt and fear with the Holy Spirit’s help. Each time we let the Holy Spirit transform our perception and release a thought of fear or guilt, we help to bring peace to the world. We see more and more clearly the face of Christ in every brother. The face of Christ is seen through forgiveness.

Today let us do our part in bringing peace to the world through our forgiveness.
