Freeing Ourselves from the Tyranny of Opinions

Today I will judge nothing that occurs.

I will be honest with myself today. I will not think that I already know what must remain beyond my present grasp. I will not think I understand the whole from bits of my perception, which are all that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so. And so I am relieved of judgments that I cannot make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us.

Father, today I leave creation free to be itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am included. We are one because each part contains Your mem­ory, and truth must shine in all of us as one. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 243, W-pII.243. See also ACIM Lesson 243 Insights.)

Having an opinion about anything in the world is hazardous to our health. Opinions are judgments. We like some things and dislike others. This could only be because we perceive them as different. Differences can only seem to occur in the dream of separation. Opinions keep us engaged in the dream.

Our safety lies in the truth of What we are. We are one, indivisible Love, united with our Creator. In this oneness we are invulnerable, for Love does not change. It can neither harm nor be harmed. This is our natural state. The practice of turning over all our opinions, our judgments, to the Holy Spirit to let Him purify them frees us from the ego’s world of fear and guilt. It restores us to the joy and peace of our Home in God.

Today we would keep no opinions to ourself alone. We choose the Holy Spirit’s vision instead.
