Forgiveness Welcomes the Miracle

Illusions will not last. ²Their death is sure and this alone is certain in their world. ³It is the ego’s world because of this. ⁴What is the ego? ⁵But a dream of what you really are. ⁶A thought you are apart from your Creator and a wish to be what He created not.

What is the ego? ²Nothingness, but in a form that seems like something. ³In a world of form the ego cannot be denied for it alone seems real.

We cannot really make a definition for what the ego is, but we can say what it is not. ²And this is shown to us with perfect clarity. ³It is from this that we deduce all that the ego is. ⁴Look at its opposite and you can see the only answer that is meaningful.

The ego’s opposite in every way,—in origin, effect and consequence—we call a miracle.

What is a miracle? ²A dream as well. ³But look at all the aspects of this dream and you will never question any more. ⁴Look at the kindly world you see extend before you as you walk in gentleness. ⁵Look at the helpers all along the way you travel, happy in the certainty of Heaven and the surety of peace.

The miracle forgives; the ego damns. …⁵Who chooses hell when it is recognized? ⁶And who would not go on a little while when it is given him to understand the way is short and Heaven is his goal? (C-2.1:1-6;2:1-3;4:1–5:1;7:1-5;10:1,5-6)

The Course tells us that there is only one problem and one solution. The problem is accepting the thought that it is possible to separate from our Creator. The answer is to forgive ourselves for believing what could never be true. Any form, including the body and the myriad forms of the world, is just a projection in a dream of separation.

The oneness of Love cannot be contained in a form. Love flows in all directions without limit. An attempt to make separate forms can only seem to be fulfilled in a dream. The forms demonstrate we believe that we are separate.

If we let the Holy Spirit show us the truth beyond the forms, we see the Light of Love. The forms fade in Its brilliance. Our perception is transformed by Its Light. We see the limitlessness of our true Self. It includes every brother as part of our one Self. And Love’s all inclusiveness heals the split that seemed to occur in a dream of separation. We find rest in the Love that created us and remains eternally one with us. We recognize we are joined together as God’s one Son, His extension of Himself.
