ACIM Workbook Lesson 266 Insights

“My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son.”

We are told that God has filled the world with our saviors. It may not seem like the person who is in our face telling us we did something wrong is our savior. But that is only because we are not using the sight God has given us to see the savior in him. This sight is the key to seeing the saviors that surround us every day. This sight comes with taking the time to allow ourselves to be in peace.

Peace comes to a quiet mind. When our minds are filled with judgment, peace is shut out. It is time to step back from those judgments and remember that it is not our job to judge. It is our job to turn over every perception to the Holy Spirit. He will judge truly, showing us what is real and what is unreal.

Our holy brothers, our saviors, reflect what we see in ourselves. If we look within and see cause for guilt, we will see guilt in our brothers. Seeing that in our brothers can be a message to us that we need to forgive. Our brother then can be a teacher of forgiveness, our savior. We need only recognize his message. In one way or another the message is, “Forgive and you will know you are forgiven.” How blessed we are to be surrounded by messengers of God, bringing us the one message that will free us from the hell of belief in separation.

To receive the blessing, my job is to open my mind to the vision of the Holy Spirit, God’s gift of sight. I need to question everything I think I know and remember I do not know what anything means on my own. With the Holy Spirit as my Guide, I am surrounded by saviors, mighty Friends whose holy message is, “You are part of me. We are one Self, the holy Son of God Himself. We share our Father’s Name. His Love is ours, united in Him. Blessed are we.” Today I would open my heart to this message that I may be free to extend the Love that I am.

Today’s lesson reflects the total thought reversal that the Course sets forth. Today’s lesson reflects the non-dualism that Jesus is guiding us toward. In today’s lesson, we are reminded that we are one Self and not divided up into separate units.

The differences that the body’s eyes see are not true and practicing this lesson helps us remember this. In reality, our brother is our one Self. Remembering this helps us remember that we are included in this one Self. That is why our brothers are our saviors. As we remember this truth for him, we are remembering this truth for ourselves. In this way we let go of our belief in separation. In this way we lay down the ego’s lies. In this way we return to the truth. In this way we return to our true Identity as Love and nothing else.

As we say to each brother we think of or encounter, “My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son,” we are helping our brother and ourselves return Home. We all go Home together, because we are one Self. Today my practice is to remember this.

Fine lesson. It reminds me that if I communicate with the Holy Self in another, the answer is ever certain, being one. What can answer in another vein but an idea of separation in my dreaming mind. I can dream of grandiosity and lofty pleasures, and I can dream of limitation and unworthiness, equally unreal.

Your Holy Self would also abide in me. A son may try to see his future in a father of this world of form, but his Holy Self and mine are one in truth, and awakening can be in the remembering. We all share in Holy Truth, and Love becomes stronger in our lives, being all that is.
