Let Holy Spirit Light Your Path

The Holy Spirit asks of you but this; bring to Him every secret you have locked away from Him. Open every door to Him, and bid Him enter the darkness [fear and guilt] and lighten it away. At your request He enters gladly. He brings the light to darkness if you make the darkness open to Him. But what you hide He cannot look upon. He sees for you, and unless you look with Him He cannot see. The vision of Christ is not for Him alone, but for Him with you. Bring, therefore, all your dark and secret thoughts to Him, and look upon them with Him. He holds the light, and you the darkness. They cannot coexist when both of You together look on them. His judgment must prevail, and He will give it to you as you join your perception to His. (A Course in Miracles, T-14.VII.6. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Today we practice letting the Holy Spirit enter into every apprehension, every fear and every form of suffering we experience. Instead of giving meaning on our own to anything we encounter, we bid Him enter in and lighten it away. We put out the ‘welcome mat’ to Holy Spirit, instead of tenaciously holding on to our guilt and fear thoughts. We look at these thoughts with Him. As we are willing to join with His perception, we easily accept His judgment and true perception replaces our false beliefs. We see past fear thoughts to the reality of Love’s presence.

We Live in God

I live in God. In Him I find my refuge and my strength. In Him is my Identity. In Him is everlasting peace. And only there will I remember Who I really am.

Let me not seek for idols. I would come, my Father, home to You today. I choose to be as You created me, and find the Son whom You created as my Self. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 261, W-pII.261.1:4-2:3). See also ACIM Lesson 261 Insights.

Today we practice remembering that we live in God. And we remember this for every brother because he is one with us in truth. God is the universal Spirit of Love That we all are. We would remember this truth today and free ourselves from the burdensome pain of the ego’s false beliefs. We imprison ourselves with these beliefs and today we would set ourselves free.

As we are willing to let go of what is not true, we see that we are not separate and alone. We see that we are not weak and vulnerable to outside forces. We are not in danger but safe in the one, united Mind of Love, eternally safe in God’s infinite peace and happiness. We would let this awareness of the truth return to our minds today. We would let ourselves remember that we all live in God eternally.

Accepting True Perception

I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s. His laws release me from all grievances, and replace them with miracles. And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond. Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have, that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me.

[I say:] Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled.
Let me not hold a grievance against you, [name], but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead.
Seen truly, this offers me a miracle.

(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 89, W-pI.89.1:2-5;2:2-4. See also ACIM Lesson 89 Insights.)

Today we practice receiving true perception with every situation we encounter. We ask Holy Spirit to lift the veil of separation so awareness of Love’s eternal Reality is known in the present moment.

Today we practice relaxing and opening to Holy Spirit’s true perception, hour by hour, minute by minute. We want to perceive every situation truly. We want to be truly helpful according to God’s plan for the Atonement. That is all we want because that is all we need to make the day a blessing to all.

Answering Love’s Call

Call to your Father, certain that His Voice will answer. He Himself has promised this. And He Himself will place a spark of truth within your mind wherever you give up a false belief, a dark illusion of your own reality and what love means. He will shine through your idle thoughts today, and help you understand the truth of love. In loving gentleness He will abide with you, as you allow His Voice to teach love’s meaning to your clean and open mind. And He will bless the lesson with His Love. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 127, W-pI.127.9. See also ACIM Lesson 127 Insights.)


We let ourselves be carried by Love today… We open to Love’s Inspiration… and let It flow through us in each present moment… We let ourselves feel Love’s gentleness and peace…… We give all thoughts of conflict and fear over to Love’s gentle, healing presence… We trust that Love is the Answer to every perceived problem… We give our time to hearing Love’s Call today… and answer the call with our willingness to receive Love and extend It to everyone… Amen.

Opening the Door to the Peace of God

The peace of God can never be contained. Who recognizes [peace] within himself must give it. And the means for giving [peace] are in his understanding. He forgives because he recognized the truth in him. The peace of God is shining in you now, and in all living things. In quietness [the peace of God is] acknowledged universally. For what your inward vision looks upon is your perception of the universe. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 188, W-pI.188.5. See also ACIM Lesson 188 Insights.)

The world we see and experience with the body is a projection of the ego thought system of separation. It is a world of conflict where peace cannot be found. We experience it because we have identified with the ego and believe it is what we are.

Yet beyond the appearances of the world is our real Home, where the Love we were created to be is in perfect unity with the Love of our Creator. Only peace is here, for there can be no conflict in what is one. We are eternally in this oneness and only need to remove our belief that the ego is what we are to experience the thoughts of Love we share with God.

As we practice stepping back from the chaos of the world and let ourselves settle into the quietness in our heart, we open the door to the peace of God within. We open the door to our Home. When we open that door, the Light of peace shines through and lights our world. This Light shows us the Love and peace that is always present, beyond appearances.

Today we practice taking time to welcome the peace and Light of God within. As we accept It, we naturally give It to all we look upon. Appearances fade as we remember more clearly the peace of God that is shining in us now.

The Outcome of Forgiveness

The outcome of the lesson that God’s Son is guiltless is a world in which there is no fear, and everything is lit with hope and sparkles with a gentle friendliness. Nothing but calls to you in soft appeal to be your friend, and let it join with you. And never does a call remain unheard, misunderstood, nor left unanswered in the selfsame tongue in which the call was made. And you will understand it was this call that everyone and everything within the world has always made, but you had not perceived it as it was. And now you see you were mistaken. You had been deceived by forms the call was hidden in. And so you did not hear it, and had lost a friend who always wanted to be part of you. The soft eternal calling of each part of God’s creation to the whole is heard throughout the world this second lesson brings.

There is no living thing that does not share the universal Will that it be whole, and that you do not leave its call unheard. (A Course in Miracles, T-31.I.8:1-8;9:1. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

Today we practice learning the Holy Spirit’s lesson of forgiveness. In the past we have learned the ego’s lesson, which is to see the Son of God as guilty. Today, with Holy Spirit’s help, that lesson is reversed and we see that in truth every Son of God is innocent because he is still as God created him. We let the Holy Spirit remind us that nothing can happen to change God’s one Son. We let the Holy Spirit remind us that behind every illusion of guilt, the truth of every Son of God is only Love.

As we let Holy Spirit return the truth to our minds, we see a different world. Untainted by illusions, we see every brother as he really is. We remember these illusions could never be real. Today we let the Holy Spirit show us the real world where there is only innocence. With Holy Spirit’s vision we see past the separate forms of the world to the Light of Love that is eternally present.

Experiencing the Miracle of Love

Strength and light unite in you, and where they meet, your Self stands ready to embrace you as Its Own.

Let yourself be brought unto your Self. Its strength will be the light in which the gift of sight is given you. Leave, then, the dark a little while today, and we will practice seeing in the light, closing the body’s eyes and asking truth to show us how to find the meeting place of self and Self, where light and strength are one. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 92, W-pI.92.9:2;10:2-4. See also ACIM Lesson 92 Insights.)

What the body’s eyes shows us is an interference with what the true Vision of our Self sees. The body’s eyes are the ego’s tool for making images that hide the truth and make the idea of separation seem real. Gratefully, we can redirect our attention to our inner vision. The inner vision of our true Self sees with the Light of Love. In this Light, only Love is seen because only Love is real.

We practice opening to true vision today. We close our eyes and let the images of the world pass by, giving them no attention… As we dismiss these images, we gently sink into deep peace… In this deep peace, we become more and more aware of the Light of Love… We see more and more the Love behind all appearances… Appearances fade and Love is recognized as our Reality…

This is our Self. In this recognition, we experience all our brothers as one with us… We share this Love… There is nothing else to share. Thus we meet our Self and experience the miracle of Love, extending without limit. This is our practice for today.
