Great News!

Salvation requires the acceptance of but one thought;—you are as God created you, not what you made of yourself. ²Whatever evil you may think you did, you are as God created you. ³Whatever mistakes you made, the truth about you is unchanged. ⁴Creation is eternal and unalterable. ⁵Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God. ⁶You are and will forever be exactly as you were created. ⁷Light and joy and peace abide in you because God put them there.

…for the first five minutes of every waking hour, begin by stating the truth about your creation:

²Light and joy and peace abide in me.
³My sinlessness is guaranteed by God.

⁴Then put away your foolish self-images, and spend the rest of the practice period in trying to experience what God has given you, in place of what you have decreed for yourself.

You are what God created or what you made. ²One Self is true; the other is not there. ³Try to experience the unity of your one Self. ⁴Try to appreciate Its Holiness and the love from which It was created. ⁵Try not to interfere with the Self which God created as you, by hiding Its majesty behind the tiny idols of evil and sinfulness you have made to replace It. ⁶Let It come into Its Own. ⁷Here you are; This is You. ⁸And light and joy and peace abide in you because this is so. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 93, W-93.7:1–9:8. See also ACIM Lesson 93 Insights.)

By the grace of God, we are and will forever be as God created us. We are His Sons Whom He sees as one. This lesson assures us that we have not succeeded in making a sinner of the Son God created holy as Himself. The appearances that seem to justify guilt and fear are nothing but illusions. It is only our belief in them that seems to make them real.

These beliefs are based on our mistaken identification with the ego and its images of bodies and myriad separate forms. This exercise can open our divided mind to learn the truth that we are Love and nothing else. The Light and joy of Love are our innate characteristics. God guarantees that we cannot lose them.

This exercise has the potential to free us from the dream of belief in separation. Just five minutes of every hour can be used to transform our mind to awaken us to God’s Mind of Love. It is worth diligent practice.
