Receiving the Vision of a Forgiven World

Christ’s vision is a miracle. It comes from far beyond itself, for it reflects eternal love and the rebirth of love which never dies, but has been kept obscure. Christ’s vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there. The darkened glass the world presents can show but twisted images in broken parts. The real world pictures Heaven’s innocence.

Christ’s vision is the miracle in which all miracles are born. It is their source, remaining with each miracle you give, and yet remaining yours. It is the bond by which the giver and receiver are united in extension here on earth, as they are one in Heaven. Christ beholds no sin in anyone. And in His sight the sinless are as one. Their holiness was given by His Father and Himself.

Behold the store of miracles set out for you to give. Are you not worth the gift, when God appointed it be given you? Judge not God’s Son, but follow in the way He has established. Christ has dreamed the dream of a forgiven world. It is His gift, whereby a sweet transition can be made from death to life; from hopelessness to hope. Let us an instant dream with Him. His dream awakens us to truth. His vision gives the means for a return to our unlost and everlasting sanctity in God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 159,W-pI.159.3;4;10. See also ACIM Lesson 159 Insights.)

Christ’s dream of a forgiven world is a dream that sees only innocence. It is the recognition that only Love is real. All thoughts and images that are not expressions of Love are disregarded as meaningless. We accept Christ’s vision by bringing our perceptions to the Christ within, with willingness to exchange them for Christ’s vision.

This means we are willing to relinquish our judgments. We remember that of ourself alone, we do not know what anything means. We are willing to consider another way of seeing. As we accept Christ’s vision, the dark shadows of separation, guilt and fear fade away. What seemed to be a need for defense is transformed into the recognition of a call for Love. The Love of our true Self answers that call with joy and we learn that we are Love. The vision of a forgiven world becomes clearer. We practice this today.
