Let Love Decide

You can be perfect witness to the power of love and justice, if you understand it is impossible the Son of God could merit vengeance. You need not perceive, in every circumstance, that this is true. Nor need you look to your experience within the world, which is but shadows of all that is really happening within yourself. The understanding that you need comes not of you, but from a larger Self, so great and holy that He could not doubt His innocence. Your special function is a call to Him, that He may smile on you whose sinlessness He shares. His understanding will be yours. And so the Holy Spirit’s special function has been fulfilled. God’s Son has found a witness unto his sinlessness and not his sins. How little need you give the Holy Spirit that simple justice may be given you.

You have the right to all the universe; to perfect peace, complete deliverance from all effects of sin, and to the life eternal, joyous and complete in every way, as God appointed for His holy Son. This is the only justice Heaven knows, and all the Holy Spirit brings to earth. Your special function shows you nothing else but perfect justice can prevail for you. And you are safe from vengeance in all forms. The world deceives, but it cannot replace God’s justice with a version of its own. For only love is just, and can perceive what justice must accord the Son of God. Let love decide, and never fear that you, in your unfairness, will deprive yourself of what God’s justice has allotted you. (A Course in Miracles,T-25.VIII.12;14. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

We cannot look to the world or our past experiences in the world to understand fairness and justice. The world is made by the belief in inequality (specialness). It is a picture of injustice because it is the denial of the justice of God’s Love given equally to all. The little separate self we believe we are cannot be fair because it is unaware of God’s perfect Love.

But hidden beneath the image of the little self is the Self that is perfect Love, united with Its Creator. This Self is fair because it sees only the reality of Love everywhere. It is to this Self we must look for guidance for in all things.

Let us join together in the practice of letting Love decide how to perceive all things in the world. This is how we bring salvation to the world and ourselves.
