Accepting Our Completion in Love

²We said before that the Holy Spirit must teach through comparisons, and uses opposites to point to truth. ³The holy instant is the opposite of the ego’s fixed belief in salvation through vengeance for the past. ⁴In the holy instant it is understood that the past is gone, and with its passing the drive for vengeance has been uprooted and has disappeared. ⁵The stillness and the peace of now enfold you in perfect gentleness. ⁶Everything is gone except the truth.

⁷In the holy instant is His reminder that His Son will always be exactly as he was created. ⁸And everything the Holy Spirit teaches is to remind you that you have received what God has given you.

There is nothing you can hold against reality. ²All that must be forgiven are the illusions you have held against your brothers. ³Their reality has no past, and only illusions can be forgiven.

Remember that you always choose between truth and illusion; between the real Atonement that would heal and the ego’s “atonement” that would destroy. ²The power of God and all His Love, without limit, will support you as you seek only your place in the plan of Atonement arising from His Love. (A Course in Miracles, T-16.VII.6:2-6;8:7–8;9:1-3;10:1-2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The body is the central figure in the ego’s portrayal of separation. It is built upon a history of the past. Its DNA links the body to preceding generations of bodies. Its heritage is considered important and establishes its uniqueness; it seems to affirm its existence. Without the past there is no foundation for the seeming existence of the body. The Course emphasizes that we are not a body.

Our reality is in the now moment, without the past. Its changeless foundation is the eternal Love of God, given us in our Creation. The present moment is the time to forgive our mistaken identification with the body and its dependence upon a past that does not exist.

As we let the Holy Spirit teach us to see the reality of Love beyond appearances in the world, we free ourselves from the past. We are free to be Love without limit. When the past has been wholly forgiven, our awareness of the Love we are is complete. This is the Atonement.
