The Path to the Certainty of Love

The Holy Spirit teaches one lesson, and applies it to all individuals in all situations. Being conflict-free, He maximizes all efforts and all results. By teaching the power of the Kingdom of God Himself, He teaches you that all power is yours. Its application does not matter. It is always maximal. Your vigilance does not establish [the power of the Kingdom] as yours, but it does enable you to use it always and in all ways. When I said “I am with you always,” I meant it literally. I am not absent to anyone in any situation. Because I am always with you, you are the way, the truth and the life. You did not make this power, any more than I did. It was created to be shared, and therefore cannot be meaningfully perceived as belonging to anyone at the expense of another.

Your right mind sees only brothers, because it sees only in its own light.

God has lit your mind Himself, and keeps your mind lit by His light because His light is what your mind is. This is totally beyond question, and when you question it you are answered. The Answer merely undoes the question by establishing the fact that to question reality is to question meaninglessly. That is why the Holy Spirit never questions. His sole function is to undo the questionable and thus lead to certainty. The certain are perfectly calm, because they are not in doubt. They do not raise questions, because nothing questionable enters their minds. This holds them in perfect serenity, because this is what they share, knowing what they are. (A Course in Miracles, T-7.III.1:1-11;4:10-5:8. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

The world we experience as a body is a world of limits. This is because differences, or specialness, are defined by limits. Perceiving ourselves as existing within these limits makes the power of God unknown to us. We still have all of God’s power in us, but we cannot use it creatively while we believe we are separate.

The Holy Spirit is in our minds with the purpose of helping us let go of the false idea that we could be without any of God’s power. We cannot know God’s power while we see our brother as different or separate from ourselves. As we are willing to offer all our thoughts and perceptions to the Holy Spirit with willingness to let Him show us what is true, the false idea of separation and differences is undone.

To heal and know the power of God in us, we need to be vigilant about bringing our thoughts to the Holy Spirit to be corrected. Following the Holy Spirit’s lead moment by moment is the path that leads us to the certainty of God’s Love.
