In the holy instant nothing happens that has not always been. Only the veil that has been drawn across reality is lifted. Nothing has changed. Yet the awareness of changelessness comes swiftly as the veil of time is pushed aside. …For in the holy instant you will recognize the only need the Sons of God share equally, and by this recognition you will join with me in offering what is needed.
It is through us that peace will come. Join me in the idea of peace, for in ideas minds can communicate. If you would give yourself as your Father gives His Self, you will learn to understand Selfhood. And therein is love’s meaning understood. But remember that understanding is of the mind, and only of the mind. Knowledge is therefore of the mind, and its conditions are in the mind with it. If you were not an idea, and nothing but an idea, you could not be in full communication with all that ever was.
In the holy instant God is remembered, and the language of communication with all your brothers is remembered with Him. …God and the power of God will take Their rightful place in you, and you will experience the full communication of ideas with ideas. Through your ability to do this you will learn what you must be, for you will begin to understand what your Creator is, and what His creation is along with Him. (A Course in Miracles, T-15.VI. 6:1-4,10;7:1-7;8:1,6-7. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)
The images we see in the world hide the oneness of Love from our awareness. When we focus our attention on these images of separation, we are unaware of Love’s Presence. All these images are simply representations of our belief that we are separate from Love. Separation and oneness cannot coexist.
Because God is Love and nothing else, His Thoughts extend only Love. God’s Thoughts are His Sons, Who remain one in God’s Mind. Because God’s Creations remain in His Mind, we can only know our oneness in Mind. Bodies cannot be aware of oneness. Bodies cannot join but minds are joined in the one Mind of Love.
As we learn to redirect our attention from body identification and the world to the Thought of Love in our minds, we join with the Love in every brother. This is how we bring peace to the world. The holy instant comes when we allow our thoughts to join with our brothers in our one Self, the Love we are. In that instant, the veil of time is drawn aside and the Light of Love floods our awareness.
Today we choose to remember we are only Love because our Creator is only Love.
