Becoming Willing to Accept Limitless Love

The Holy Spirit can use all that you give to Him for your salvation. But He cannot use what you withhold, for He cannot take it from you without your willingness. For if He did, you would believe He wrested it from you against your will. And so you would not learn it is your will to be without it. You need not give it to Him wholly willingly, for if you could you had no need of Him. But this He needs; that you prefer He take it than that you keep it for yourself alone, and recognize that what brings loss to no one you would not know. This much is necessary to add to the idea no one can lose for you to gain. And nothing more.

Justice looks on all in the same way. It is not just that one should lack for what another has. For that is vengeance in whatever form it takes. Justice demands no sacrifice…

It is impossible for you to share the Holy Spirit’s justice with a mind that can conceive of specialness at all. (A Course in Miracles, T-25.VIII.1;4:2-5;5:8. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The wish for specialness, to have more of something than others have, denies the unity of Love. It asks that others sacrifice in order for us to have more. It is based on the belief in limitation which contradicts the equality of universal Love.

When we choose the ego as our identity, we sacrifice awareness of the universal Love that is our Being. We treasure forms in the world and believe that to give up these valued forms would be a sacrifice. Were the Holy Spirit to take these treasures from us without our willingness, we would believe the ego is asking us to sacrifice and therefore lose what is important to us.

We defend our “treasures,” even unto death, because we believe these treasures are our identity. But any forms we treasure in the world are empty illusions with no value of their own. To bring healing to our minds, the Holy Spirit must help us recognize that the forms we have valued give us nothing we really want.

When we reach the point that we would prefer to have God’s gift of Love rather than our little, limited treasures, we are open to the Holy Spirit’s loving correction. He needs this willingness in order for us to open to His healing vision. With this open mind, sacrifice and the perception of loss is replaced with accept of our true Will which is to be united with all in God’s Love.

Today we remind ourselves that our perceptions in the world show us only limitation. We are willing to give these perceptions to the Holy Spirit and ask Him to cleanse away the limitations and return to us the awareness of limitless Love, peace and happiness.
