The Blessing of Serving the Holy Spirit’s Plan

Neither you nor your brother alone can serve at all. Only in your joint will does healing lie. For here your healing is, and here will you accept Atonement. And in your healing is the Sonship healed because your will and your brother’s are joined.”

Child of peace, the light has come to you. The light you bring you do not recognize, and yet you will remember. Who can deny himself the vision that he brings to others? And who would fail to recognize a gift he let be laid in Heaven through himself? The gentle service that you give the Holy Spirit is service to yourself. You who are now His means must love all that [the Holy Spirit] loves. And what you bring is your remembrance of everything that is eternal. No trace of anything in time can long remain in a mind that serves the timeless. And no illusion can disturb the peace of a relationship that has become the means of peace.

When you have looked upon your brother with complete forgiveness, from which no error is excluded and nothing kept hidden, what mistake can there be anywhere you cannot overlook? What form of suffering could block your sight, preventing you from seeing past it? And what illusion could there be you will not recognize as a mistake; a shadow through which you walk completely undismayed? God would let nothing interfere with those whose wills are His, and they will recognize their wills are His, because they serve His Will. And serve it willingly. And could remembrance of what they are be long delayed? (A Course in Miracles, T-22.VI.4:5-8;6-7. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

The path to freedom and peace is through service to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s purpose is to bring us to full remembrance that we remain at one with God. We remain Love and nothing else. To serve the Holy Spirit is to serve His purpose. In this service we become His messengers of Light to all our brothers. We see every brother in this Light, which dispels the shadows of ego’s illusions of separation.

When we see our brothers in the Light of Love, we see that same Light in ourselves. As we perceive our brothers, we perceive ourselves. When we choose to serve the Holy Spirit, we accept God’s Will as our own. We lay aside our mistaken belief in the ego’s thought of separation. It is through this dedication and practice that we forgive our mistaken perceptions. The Holy Spirit’s Light shines away these shadows and brings us true perception that sees the innocence of Love everywhere. This is our dedication today and every day.
