Letting Love’s Light Dawn upon Our Mind

My grievances hide the light of the world in me. My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see. Recognizing this, what do I want my griev­ances for? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Griev­ances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. To see, I must lay grievances aside. I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.

Specific applications for this idea might be made in these forms:

Let me not use this as a block to sight.
The light of the world will shine all this away.
I have no need for this. I want to see.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 85, W-pI.85:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 85 Insights.)

Grievances are judgments against what is. Perceiving a brother as a body is a judgment against the oneness of Love that he is. At its core, it is a judgment against the Love of God. Our true Self remains united with the Love of God and desires only to remain one with Love. Our true Self’s only desire is to see the Love that our brother is and join with him in Love’s unity.

But when we judge a brother, including believing he is a body, we deny the presence of Love. This denial hides the Light of Love from our awareness, leaving us in a dream of lovelessness, fear and guilt. To waken from the dream we need to accept the Holy Spirit’s vision in place of the ego’s image-making. When we perceive anything that disturbs our peace, it is a sign that we need to forgive our misperception. When the misperception is let go, the Light of Love dawns upon our mind.

Every day is filled with opportunities to accept the Holy Spirit’s help to forgive our misperceptions and join with Love. Let’s join together in the practice of forgiveness.
