How to Use Our Projections to Heal Our Minds

Let us this day accept forgiveness as our only function. ²Why should we attack our minds, and give them images of pain? ³Why should we teach [our minds] they are powerless, when God holds out His power and His Love, and bids them take what is already theirs? ⁴The mind that is made willing to accept God’s gifts has been restored to spirit, and extends [spirit’s] freedom and its joy, as is the Will of God united with its own. ⁵The Self which God created cannot sin, and therefore cannot suffer. ⁶Let us choose today that [this Self] be our Identity, and thus escape forever from all things the dream of fear appears to offer us.

Father, Your Son can not be hurt. ²And if we think we suffer, we but fail to know our one Identity we share with You. ³We would return to It today, to be made free forever from all our mistakes, and to be saved from what we thought we were. (A Course in Miracles, W-330.1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 330 Insights.)

The dream of the world is the outward picture of the ego’s grievance against God. God could not grant the ego’s wish for specialness which would require separation. Separation is impossible in the oneness of God’s Love. The ego’s judgments appear to be about the world outside our mind. It does not want us to know that those external appearances are the its own projections.

We can learn to use our perceptions in the world as paths to forgiveness by being willing to accept that they reflect beliefs we hold in our mind. Just as we can only see our face when it is reflected in a mirror, we can only see our beliefs reflected back to us by our perceptions.

The ego uses perceptions to project guilt and fear. The Holy Spirit transforms our perceptions to heal our unforgiveness. The ego offers only continuation of the hell of separation from Love. The Holy Spirit offers return to the joy and peace of our Home in the Heaven of God’s Love.

Let’s join with each other by dedicating today to following the Holy Spirit’s lead.
