ACIM Workbook Lesson 313 Insights

“Now let a new perception come to me.”

True perception is completely free of the past. It sees only what is in the present. Because Love is eternal and is therefore ever present, true perception sees only Love. There is nothing else to see. Where Love is recognized, there can be no fear. True perception shows me a world without fear, a world of complete forgiveness. Here peace remains undisturbed and Love is extended equally to all.

Holy Spirit, today I open my mind to You. I would share Your vision and see only the kind and beneficent. I would see only the innocent and loving, for that is what is real and true. I give my judgments to You and ask for Your strength to let them go so that I may receive Your gift of vision. Thus will I learn to recognize my Self and see It everywhere. “Now let a new perception come to me.”

All that is real is the limitless Thought of Love in the Mind of Love. This Love is changeless and eternal. It is whole and complete. It is one and cannot be divided or changed or separated in any way. This is our Source. This is our eternal Beingness. This is Reality. Returning to this truth is what our function is. It is our one goal.

As we are willing to open to this truth and receive this truth, we help the whole Sonship because minds are connected. How do I help my brother? I let the Holy Spirit’s change of perception come to my awareness. I let my mind return to the truth. This is how I truly help. Joining with my brother in making illusions real is never truly helpful. Joining with the one Mind of Truth is truly helpful.

I do not have to repeat the past and play the old separation game from the past. I do not need to follow the ego’s rules. As I let a new perception come to me, I am guided by a completely different thought system. The Holy Spirit’s values are totally the opposite of the ego’s values. With the Holy Spirit I can let the ego’s values go because they are meaningless.

Today I choose to let a new perception come to me. I quiet my mind and ask for the truth. I choose to awaken from the dream and this is how I can be truly helpful.

I love the paragraph where you talked about how I can help my brother. That is a good emphasis, that I can help my brother through my change of perception because our minds are connected. What I do for myself, I do for my brother. I love that. I also appreciate the reminder that it is never helpful to join in making illusions real. That is a bad habit I have not completely overcome and I will work harder on it now that I think about it.
