Exchanging Guilt for Love’s Oneness

³Delay does not matter in eternity, but it is tragic in time. ⁴You have elected to be in time rather than eternity, and therefore believe you are in time. ⁵Yet your election is both free and alterable. ⁶You do not belong in time. ⁷Your place is only in eternity, where God Himself placed you forever.

Guilt feelings are the preservers of time. ²They induce fears of retaliation or abandonment, and thus ensure that the future will be like the past. ³This is the ego’s continuity. ⁴It gives the ego a false sense of security by believing that you cannot escape from it. ⁵But you can and must. ⁶God offers you the continuity of eternity in exchange. ⁷When you choose to make this exchange, you will simultaneously exchange guilt for joy, viciousness for love, and pain for peace. ⁸My role is only to unchain your will and set it free. ⁹Your ego cannot accept this freedom, and will oppose it at every possible moment and in every possible way. ¹⁰And as [the ego’s] maker, you recognize what it can do because you gave it the power to do it.

Remember the Kingdom always, and remember that you who are part of the Kingdom cannot be lost. ²The Mind that was in me is in you, for God creates with perfect fairness. ³Let the Holy Spirit remind you always of His fairness, and let me teach you how to share it with your brothers.” (A Course in Miracles, T-5.VI.1:3–3:3. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The idea of sin is the ego’s belief that separation is irreversible. Were this true, forgiveness would be impossible and guilt inevitable. By the grace of God, only Love is real. Separation never occurred in truth. This is the basis for all forgiveness. Nothing has happened to change God’s one Son. We need only let go of the mistaken beliefs in separation.

Guilt is always based upon something that occurred in the past. Thus guilt keeps the idea of time in place. In the present moment, the changeless reality of Love’s oneness is recognized as all that is real. When we accept the help of the Holy Spirit, He heals our guilty thoughts and shows us that harm is impossible.

Today we offer all our perceptions to Him for His loving correction. For we would replace fear with Love and awaken to our Home in the heart of God.
