Releasing Ourselves from Guilt

In stillness we will hear God’s Voice today without intrusion of our petty thoughts, without our personal desires, and without all judgment of His holy Word. We will not judge ourselves today, for what we are can not be judged. We stand apart from all the judgments which the world has laid upon the Son of God. It knows him not. Today we will not listen to the world, but wait in silence for the Word of God.

Today He speaks to you. His Voice awaits your silence, for His Word can not be heard until your mind is quiet for a while, and meaningless desires have been stilled. Await His Word in quiet. There is peace within you to be called upon today, to help make ready your most holy mind to hear the Voice for its Creator speak. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 125, W-pI.125.3;6. See also ACIM Lesson 125 Insights.)

Most of us have so much chatter going on in our minds that the idea of quieting our minds seems to be a daunting task. Yet we are told that there is a place of quiet in our minds that we can call upon for help. It is in us now, but we must be willing to accept the help. We need to make quieting our mind, at least for some time every day, our highest priority. The ego offers all kinds of excuses to convince us that we can’t take the time; there are too many things to do. But this is just the ego’s defense against our recognition of the quiet peace of our true Self.

Today our top priority is to accept the peace in our minds. We want to hear our true Self assure us that we are safe in Love. We want to remember that we share the holiness of God with all our brothers. We want to see the Christ, the true Self, in every brother. We want to bring release from guilt to all the world, for we want to remember our Self. In quiet we will receive God’s assurance that we are His Son and we remain united with Him in Love.
