Choosing Christ’s Vision as Our Guide

What makes this world seem real except your own denial of the truth that lies beyond? What but your thoughts of misery and death obscure the perfect happiness and the eternal life your Father wills for you? And what could hide what cannot be concealed except illusion? What could keep from you what you already have except your choice to see it not, denying it is there?

The Thought of God created you.

Deny not Heaven. It is yours today, but for the asking.

Ask with desire. You need not be sure that you request the only thing you want. But when you have received, you will be sure you have the treasure you have always sought. What would you then exchange for [Heaven]? What would induce you now to let it fade away from your ecstatic vision? For this sight proves that you have exchanged your blindness for the seeing eyes of Christ; your mind has come to lay aside denial, and accept the Thought of God as your inheritance.

We count on God, and not upon ourselves, to give us certainty. And in His Name we practice as His Word directs we do. His sureness lies beyond our every doubt. His Love remains beyond our every fear. The Thought of Him is still beyond all dreams and in our minds, according to His Will. (, A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 165, W-pI.165.1:1-2:1;4:1-2;5;8. See also ACIM Lesson 165 Insights.)

Just as a seeing eye dog guides someone who is blind in the world, the eyes of Christ guide us back to Heaven when we have blinded ourself to the Reality of God’s Thought of Love. The seeing eyes of Christ are ever-present in our mind, but we must be willing to follow Christ’s vision. This is why it is important that we realize what we see with the body’s eyes hides the gift of Heaven from our sight.

Nothing we see in the world has any value or meaning of its own. It’s only the meaning that we give it that makes it fearful. But the practice of stepping back and asking to see Heaven, to see with Christ’s vision, will return us to the awareness that we are in Heaven now.

Today we choose Christ’s vision as our guide. This will lead us out of the darkness of the denial of Heaven and return us to the Thought of God that is our Home.
