God’s Love Is Our Only Treasure

As the ego would limit your perception of your brothers to the body, so would the Holy Spirit release your vision and let you see the Great Rays shining from them, so unlimited that they reach to God. It is this shift [from perception] to vision that is accomplished in the holy instant.

Our task is but to continue, as fast as possible, the necessary process of looking straight at all the interference and seeing it exactly as it is. For it is impossible to recognize as wholly without gratification what you think you want. The body is the symbol of the ego, as the ego is the symbol of the separation. And both are nothing more than attempts to limit communication, and thereby to make it impossible. For communication must be unlimited in order to have meaning, and deprived of meaning, it will not satisfy you completely. Yet it remains the only means by which you can establish real relationships, which have no limits, having been established by God.

Love would always give increase. Limits are demanded by the ego, and represent its demands to make little and ineffectual. Limit your sight of a brother to his body, which you will do as long as you would not release him from it, and you have denied his gift to you. His body cannot give it. And seek it not through yours. Yet your minds are already continuous, and their union need only be accepted and the loneliness in Heaven is gone. (A Course in Miracles, T-15.IX.1:1-2;2;4:2-7. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Only Love is real. It extends forever without limit. Communication could be described as the undivided and unlimited flow of Love to Love. This flow continues unabated, whether or not we choose to deny Love, as the ego does. The only barrier that seems to stand between us and God’s unlimited Love is our identification with the ego’s denial of Love.

This denial needs to be undone to enable us to know the limitless Love we are. The ego would have us waste time on meaningless pursuits for its substitutes for love tied to perception of the body. The body is a limit. It cannot offer Love, for it is the symbol of the denial of Love.

If we are willing to reconsider our attachment to the ego and body, the Holy Spirit can help us see beyond the ego’s limits. His vision offers us the means to experience the unity of Love. His lessons will show us that the body offers nothing of value. We will learn that our treasure is in the Love we are, united with every brother and God. Here we find peace and happiness. We are free from fear and guilt. We are free to be as Love created us.
