Learning from the Guide to Truth

²To forgive is to overlook. ³Look, then, beyond error and do not let your perception rest upon it, for you will believe what your perception holds. ⁴Accept as true only what your brother is, if you would know yourself. ⁵Perceive what he is not and you cannot know what you are, because you see him falsely. ⁶Remember always that your Identity [Love] is shared, and that Its sharing is Its reality.

²You do not understand how to overlook errors, or you would not make them. ³It would merely be further error to believe either that you do not make them, or that you can correct [errors] without a Guide to correction. ⁴And if you do not follow this Guide, your errors will not be corrected. ⁵The plan is not yours because of your limited ideas about what you are. ⁶This sense of limitation is where all errors arise. ⁷The way to undo them, therefore, is not of you but for you.

The Atonement is a lesson in sharing, which is given you because you have forgotten how to do it [share]. ²The Holy Spirit merely reminds you of the natural use of your abilities. ³By reinterpreting the ability to attack into the ability to share [Love], He translates what you have made into what God created. (A Course in Miracles, T-9.IV.1:2-6;2:2–3:3. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

While we believe we are a body, we are believing in a false identity. This has no effect on our true Identity as Love, but it does make us unaware of It. We have taught ourselves to believe a lie is true. Because we have embraced this insane thought system, we need help from a Guide Who can lead us out of our insanity. This is the Holy Spirit’s purpose.

We need to be willing to follow our Guide to truth to regain awareness of our true Self as Love, united with all in that Love. When we are willing to question our interpretations and ask for the Holy Spirit’s re-interpretation of our perceptions, we open the door to return to Love. Love is always there, ready to be seen and shared. It waits only on our willingness. Love cannot go where It is not welcome.

In every moment of every day we choose between the ego’s “gifts” of specialness or God’s gift of all His Love eternally. Today we practice stepping back from our perceptions to receive the Holy Spirit’s interpretations which will always lead us to sharing Love. This practice will bring us joy and peace as we join in Love.
