The Key to Release from All Problems

Although you are one Self, you experience yourself as two; as both good and evil, loving and hating, mind and body. This sense of being split into opposites induces feelings of acute and constant conflict, and leads to frantic attempts to reconcile the contradictory aspects of this self-perception. You have sought many such solutions, and none of them has worked. The opposites you see in you will never be compatible. But one exists.

The fact that truth and illusion cannot be reconciled, no matter how you try, what means you use and where you see the problem, must be accepted if you would be saved. Until you have accepted this, you will attempt an endless list of goals you cannot reach; a senseless series of expenditures of time and effort, hopefulness and doubt, each one as futile as the one before, and failing as the next one surely will.

Salvation comes from this one Self through Him Who is the Bridge between your mind and It. Wait patiently, and let Him speak to you about your Self, and what your mind can do, restored to [this one Self] and free to serve Its Will. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 96, W-pI.96.1-2;8:3-4. See also ACIM Lesson 98 Insights.)

The ultimate solution to all our problems cannot be resolved through the world made by the thought of separation. Separation could never be true because our Source is one and cannot be divided. Together we are one Self, united in the Mind of God which created this one Self by extending His Love.

In the dream world we believe in a mind that is split off from our Source. The Holy Spirit is the bridge of communication between this split mind and the Mind of our one Self, united with the loving Will of God. The Holy Spirit is the Voice for Love, extending to the split mind that has denied Love.

The practice of pausing and welcoming the Voice for Love in our minds opens us to the resolution of all our problems. This Voice brings peace with It as we welcome It. In peace all problems are quietly resolved. In peace we are inspired with the form of Love’s reflection to be applied in the world. Thus the problems the ego would use to make separation seem real becomes the means to release belief in separation. This is how we accept God’s plan for salvation.
