Accepting That Only Love Is Real

⁴[God’s] Word has promised peace. ⁵It has also promised that there is no death, that resurrection must occur, and that rebirth is man’s inheritance. ⁶The world you see cannot be the world God loves, and yet His Word assures us that He loves the world. ⁷God’s Word has promised that peace is possible here, and what He promises can hardly be impossible. ⁸But it is true that the world must be looked at differently, if His promises are to be accepted. ⁹What the world is, is but a fact. ¹⁰You cannot choose what this should be. ¹¹But you can choose how you would see it. ¹²Indeed, you must choose this.

The text explains that the Holy Spirit is the Answer to all problems you have made. ²These problems are not real, but that is meaningless to those who believe in them. ³And everyone believes in what he made, for it was made by his believing it. ⁴Into this strange and paradoxical situation,—one without meaning and devoid of sense, yet out of which no way seems possible,—God has sent His Judgment to answer yours. ⁵Gently His Judgment substitutes for yours. ⁶And through this substitution is the un-understandable made understandable. ⁷How is peace possible in this world? ⁸In your judgment it is not possible, and can never be possible. ⁹But in the Judgment of God what is reflected here is only peace.

Peace is impossible to those who look on war. ²Peace is inevitable to those who offer peace. ³How easily, then, is your judgment of the world escaped! ⁴It is not the world that makes peace seem impossible. ⁵It is the world you see that is impossible. ⁶Yet has God’s Judgment on this distorted world redeemed it and made it fit to welcome peace. ⁷And peace descends on it in joyous answer. ⁸Peace now belongs here, because a Thought of God has entered. (A Course in Miracles, M-11.1:4-12;3:1–4:8)

When we perceive conflict and war, it is because we are using the ego thought system for our judgments. The Holy Spirit in our mind offers His judgment to replace ours. His judgment is based on God’s Thought of Love, where no conflict exists.

As we are vigilant to let the Holy Spirit’s judgment replace ours, our outlook on the world is increasingly peaceful. Today let us accept the Holy Spirit’s mission to apply God’s judgment as our own. His judgment is that only Love is real. Conflict does not exist in Reality. The real world is recognized as the world of Love’s Reality.

Today we practice being messengers of Love and peace as we let the Holy Spirit’s judgment replace our mistaken perceptions.
