Christ’s Vision Sees Our True Self

What has been given you? The knowledge that you are a mind, in Mind and purely mind, sinless forever, wholly unafraid, because you were created out of love. Nor have you left your Source, remaining as you were created. This was given you as knowledge which you cannot lose. It was given as well to every living thing, for by that knowledge only does it live.

You have received all this. No one who walks the world but has received it. …Experience [revelation] cannot be shared directly, in the way that vision can. The revelation that the Father and the Son are one will come in time to every mind.

Yet there is no step along the road that anyone takes but by chance. …We but undertake a journey that is over. Yet it seems to have a future still unknown to us.

Time is a trick, a sleight of hand, a vast illusion in which fig­ures come and go as if by magic. Yet there is a plan behind appearances that does not change. The script is written. When experience will come to end your doubting has been set. For we but see the journey from the point at which it ended, looking back on it, imagining we make it once again; reviewing mentally what has gone by. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 158, W-pI.158.1;2:2,7-8;3:3,6-7;4. See also ACIM Lesson 158 Insights.)

Our true Self knows It is Mind, within the Mind of Love. It does not see Itself as a body or limited to a body. Our Self knows It shares the limitlessness of the Love that created It.

Having chosen to identify instead with a body made by the ego, we are unaware of our true Self. We give credence to what the body’s eyes show us, making us blind to the only Reality that is Love. The vision of Christ is the means to see past the body to the undivided, unlimited Love that is our Source of Life.

We open to Christ’s vision by offering our perceptions to the Holy Spirit for reinterpretation. He brings us the vision of Christ to see the truth beyond the illusions of the world. This is our practice for today.
