Chapter 9: The Acceptance of the Atonement

Section VI: The Acceptance of Your Brother

Read ACIM Chapter 9, Section VI (pages 173-175)

What does Jesus mean by the acceptance of our brother?

The acceptance of our brother is seeing the Christ in him. Receiving the Holy Spirit is the decision to accept the Holy Spirit in our brother. In section two of this chapter, Jesus tells us, “Knowing what you are, I cannot doubt you. I hear only the Holy Spirit in you, Who speaks to me through you.” (T-9.II.7:3-4)

What do we unconsciously project onto others?

There is only one Son. As we look upon any part of the Sonship, we learn what we are. Remember that we unconsciously project onto others what we believe we are. When we believe we are separate, we believe others are separate from us and have separate interests. When we know we are one with all our brothers, we know our interests are always the same. We know that there is only one Son and that Son is Love, just as God Is. We share God’s Will to create, which is to extend Love. Love is whole and cannot be divided. “...You cannot learn of your wholeness until you see it everywhere.” (4:6) God’s Love is limitless and everywhere, and so is ours because we remain one with Him. But we only become aware of this when we accept it in all our brothers.

How do we learn to recognize all true meaning and all true value?

In God’s universal Love is all meaning and all value. We learn to recognize all true meaning and all true value as we learn from the Holy Spirit to see God’s universal Love in every brother. That is how we accept our brother as he is. That is how we see Love’s wholeness, Love’s limitlessness. As we waken our brothers by seeing the Love in them, we recognize the Love in ourselves and see that only God’s universal Love is real.
