Accepting Our True Nature as Love

Who is the light of the world except God’s Son? ²This, then, is merely a statement of the truth about yourself. ³It is the opposite of a statement of pride, of arrogance, or of self-deception. ⁴It does not describe the self-concept you have made. ⁵It does not refer to any of the characteristics with which you have endowed your idols. ⁶It refers to you as you were created by God. ⁷It simply states the truth.

You will want to think about this idea as often as possible today. ²It is the perfect answer to all illusions, and therefore to all temptation. ³It brings all the images you have made about yourself to the truth, and helps you depart in peace, unburdened and certain of your purpose.

As many practice periods as possible should be undertaken today, although each one need not exceed a minute or two. ²They should begin with telling yourself:

³I am the light of the world. ⁴That is my only function. ⁵That is why I am here.

Today’s idea goes far beyond the ego’s petty views of what you are and what your purpose is. …⁵You are the light of the world. ⁶God has built His plan for the salvation of His Son on you. (A Course in Miracles, W-61.1;4:1–5:5;7:1,5-6. See also ACIM Lesson 61 Insights.)

As God’s Son, our function is to give Love to the world as He extends His Love to us. This is our natural function. Fear and guilt are unnatural. The only thing that stands between what we are as Love’s extension and our function is our identification with a separate identity.

In the dream of this separate identity, our function is to forgive our mistaken beliefs. Forgiveness clears away our barriers to Love’s presence. Today we ask the Holy Spirit to help us let go of our mistaken beliefs. This opens the door to our natural extension of Love. This is how we bring Light to the world.
