Claiming Our Inheritance

How can I know who I am when I see myself as under constant attack? Pain, illness, loss, age and death seem to threaten me. All my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control. Yet perfect security and complete fulfillment are my inheritance.

Recognizing that what I see reflects what I think I am, I realize that vision is my greatest need. The world I see attests to the fearful nature of the self-image I have made. If I would remember who I am, it is essential that I let this image of myself go. As it is replaced by truth, vision will surely be given me. And with this vision, I will look upon the world and on myself with charity and love.

I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 56, W-pI.56.1:2-5;2:2-6;3:4. See also ACIM Lesson 56 Insights.)

While we believe we are in the world, we cannot see the truth without help. By the grace of God, the Help we need is already in our mind. But we must accept this Help. The Holy Spirit continuously offers us His vision of truth.

We welcome His vision by turning over all our perceptions to Him to be purified. He will show us the unity of Love behind the appearances we thought were real. This practice helps open the door to the truth beyond this world of illusions. It is a practice that allows the Holy Spirit to heal our fearful thoughts return us to the awareness of the Love we are.
