Discovering Our True Identity

⁶The resurrection is the complete triumph of Christ over the ego, not by attack but by transcendence. ⁷For Christ does rise above the ego and all its works, and ascends to the Father and His Kingdom.

Would you join in the resurrection or the crucifixion? ²Would you condemn your brothers or free them? ³Would you transcend your prison and ascend to the Father? ⁴These questions are all the same, and are answered together. ⁵There has been much confusion about what perception means, because the word is used both for awareness and for the interpretation of awareness. ⁶Yet you cannot be aware without interpretation, for what you perceive is your interpretation.

⁶I am leading you to a new kind of experience that you will become less and less willing to deny. ⁷Learning of Christ is easy, for to perceive with Him involves no strain at all. ⁸His perceptions are your natural awareness, and it is only the distortions you introduce that tire you. ⁹Let the Christ in you interpret for you, and do not try to limit what you see by narrow little beliefs that are unworthy of God’s Son. ¹⁰For until Christ comes into His Own, the Son of God will see himself as Fatherless.

I am your resurrection and your life. ²You live in me because you live in God. ³And everyone lives in you, as you live in everyone. ⁴Can you, then, perceive unworthiness in a brother and not perceive it in yourself? (A Course in Miracles, T-11.VI.1:6–2:6;3:6–4:4. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Only in a dream of separation does loss and sacrifice seem real. But a dream, by definition, is not real. While we believe the dream of separation is real, we need to be led to experience that teaches us that only Love is real.

A Course in Miracles is a guide to awaken us from our dream of separation. Its message leads to full reversal of the thought system we have embraced. Our investment in this mistaken belief supports great resistance to change. It seems that if we change what we believe, we will be jumping into a void; we will lose our identity.

But the identity we have embraced is not real. It requires great effort to defend it because we know it has no foundation in truth. But when we are willing to embrace the vision of Christ, which sees only the oneness and innocence of Love, we discover our true Identity—changeless Love which needs no defense. As we accept this Identity, uncertainty and fear disappear to be replaced by the certainty of God’s Love.

Today we are willing to embrace Christ’s vision, for we would awaken to our true Self, the Son of God.
