The world can give no gifts of any value to a mind that has received what God has given as its own. God wills salvation be received today, and that the intricacies of your dreams no longer hide their nothingness from you.
Open your eyes today and look upon a happy world of safety and of peace. Forgiveness is the means by which it comes to take the place of hell. In quietness it rises up to greet your open eyes, and fill your heart with deep tranquility as ancient truths, forever newly born, arise in your awareness. What you will remember then can never be described. Yet your forgiveness offers it to you.
Retain your gifts in clear awareness as you see the changeless in the heart of change; the light of truth behind appearances. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 122, W-pI.122.7:5-8:5;13:4. See also ACIM Lesson 122 Insights.)
When we give exclusive attention to what the body’s senses present to us, our minds are closed to the inspiration and vision of the Holy Spirit, our true Self. Everything observed through the body is a projection of the thought system of separation and represents the denial of the oneness of God’s Love.
If we want to be happy, we need to shift our attention to the Mind of our true Self Who sees the Light of Truth beyond all appearances in the dream. Our Self knows and accepts God’s gifts of peace, joy and limitless Love. As we are willing, our true Self will help us recognize the presence of God’s gifts everywhere.
As our attention becomes more dedicated to letting our Self be our Guide moment by moment, we will experience God’s blessing more and more. The chaos of the world will have less effect on us. No matter what storm seems to surround us, we will remain in our center of peace. From this center, we can bring peace to the world. The storms will diminish. We will join with our brothers in true forgiveness and let the real world of innocence replace the world of guilt and fear. This is our function.
