Extending the Blessing of Love’s Unity

The lilies [holiness] that your brother offers you are laid upon your altar, with the ones you offer him beside them. ²Who could fear to look upon such lovely holiness? ³The great illusion of the fear of God diminishes to nothingness before the purity that you will look on here. ⁴Be not afraid to look. ⁵The blessedness you will behold will take away all thought of form, and leave instead the perfect gift [Love] forever there, forever to increase, forever yours, forever given away.

Now are we one in thought [Love], for fear has gone. ²And here, before the altar to one God, one Father, one Creator and one Thought, we stand together as one Son of God. ³Not separate from Him Who is our Source; not distant from one brother who is part of our one Self Whose innocence has joined us all as one, we stand in blessedness, and give as we receive. ⁴The Name of God is on our lips. ⁵And as we look within, we see the purity of Heaven shine in our reflection of our Father’s Love.

Now are we blessed, and now we bless the world. (A Course in Miracles, W-187.9:1–11:1. See also ACIM Lesson 187 Insights.)

Fear is inevitable in the dream of separation. There appears to be something or someone separate from us who can attack us. We do not believe we remain united with the strength of the Love that created us. But in the reality of Love’s oneness, there is no “other.” We remain the Thought of Love, which extends the Source of Love. In this Thought there is only unity. We are together with every brother as Love’s extension, the Son of God.

In this thought of our oneness is perfect peace and the joy of extending Love. We ask the Holy Spirit’s help to see the Love that unites us. We are blessed by this Love and naturally extend the blessing as we recognize our brothers are one with us in Love.
