Identifying with God’s Son, Our True Self

The body was made to be a sacrifice to sin, and in the darkness so it still is seen. Yet in the light of vision it is looked upon quite differently. You can have faith in [the body] to serve the Holy Spirit’s goal, and give it power to serve as means to help the blind to see. But in their seeing they look past [the body], as do you. The faith and the belief you gave it belongs beyond. You gave perception and belief and faith from mind to body. Let them now be given back to (the mind which] produced [perception, belief and faith], and can use them still to save itself from what it made.

Your faith is moving inward, past insanity and on to reason. And what your reason tells you now the ego would not hear. The Holy Spirit’s purpose was accepted by the part of your mind the ego knows not of. No more did you. And yet this part, with which you now identify, is not afraid to look upon itself. It knows no sin. How, otherwise, could it have been willing to see the Holy Spirit’s purpose as its own?

This part has seen your brother, and recognized him perfectly since time began. And it desired nothing but to join with him and to be free again, as once it was. It has been waiting for the birth of freedom; the acceptance of release to come to you. (A Course in Miracles, T-21.III.12. IV.4:3-5:3. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Our right mind, our true Self, has always seen Itself in every brother. Being Love, our true Self wants only to join with the Love that is the truth in our brothers. The acceptance of this purpose is the end of the ego’s goal of separation (sin). The ego cannot seem to exist in the Light of Love’s oneness.

When we accept the Holy Spirit’s purpose as our own, we accept His vision which shows us the Love that is our brother, beyond the appearance of a body. Today we give our perception, faith and belief to the Holy Spirit’s purpose. For we would identify with the true Self we share with our brothers and remember we are God’s one Son.
