How to Learn the Truth of What We Are

God goes with me wherever I go. How can I be alone when God always goes with me? How can I be doubtful and unsure of myself when perfect certainty abides in Him? How can I be disturbed by anything when He rests in me in absolute peace? How can I suffer when love and joy surround me through Him? Let me not cherish illusions about myself. I am perfect because God goes with me wherever I go.

God is my strength. Vision is His gift. Let me not look to my own eyes to see today. Let me be willing to exchange my pitiful illusion of seeing for the vision that is given by God. Christ’s vision is His gift, and He has given it to me. Let me call upon this gift today, so that this day may help me to understand eternity. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 59, W-pI.59.1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 59 Insights.)

God is our constant Companion. There is nowhere that God is absent. His eternal Presence surrounds us with His joy and peace and Love. The perfection of the Self we are is guaranteed, for we are held in His sure protection. Nothing can change or harm What God created perfect.

The image the ego made of a weak and isolated self is a defense against the truth of What we are. While we identify with the ego-made self, we are unaware of the strength of God in us. The illusion of seeing with the body’s eyes cannot see the one Self we are.

But God has given us Christ’s vision in our mind which overlooks the ego-made images, seeing only the ever-present Love that is our Self. Today we dedicate to bringing the perceptions that disturb our peace to Christ’s vision to learn the truth of what we are.
