How to Be Free from Guilt

The special relationship is totally meaningless without a body. ²If you value it, you must also value the body. ³And what you value you will keep. ⁴The special relationship is a device for limiting your self to a body, and for limiting your perception of others to theirs. ⁵The Great Rays would establish the total lack of value of the special relationship, if they were seen. ⁶For in seeing them the body would disappear, because its value would be lost.

²For a time the body is still seen, but not exclusively, as it is seen here. …⁵For you will realize that the only value the body has is to enable you to bring your brothers to the bridge with you, and to be released together there.

The Holy Spirit asks only this little help of you: Whenever your thoughts wander to a special relationship which still attracts you, enter with Him into a holy instant, and there let Him release you. ²He needs only your willingness to share His perspective to give it to you completely. (A Course in Miracles, T-16.VI.4:1-6;6:2,5;12:1-2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

We see what we value. We see a world of separate bodies because we want separation and specialness to be real. This wish casts a shadow that covers the truth that we remain united in Love. Specialness, which requires differences, denies the universal oneness of Love where can be no difference. This leads to guilt because for one to have something that is his alone, it must be denied of others. This guilt maintains the belief in separation.

We release the guilt when we forgive the mistaken value we give specialness. For this forgiveness, we need the Holy Spirit’s help. Whenever we have a thought that disturbs our peace of mind, guilt has entered. With the practice of bringing these thoughts to the Holy Spirit with willingness to receive His perspective in place of ours, we dispel the veil that hides the Light of Love. The Holy Spirit is ever present and willing to help. When we ask for His help, we have expressed our willingness to accept it. Today we choose release from guilt by welcoming His help.
