Making Christ’s Vision Our Priority

Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.

What time but now can truth be recognized? ²The present is the only time there is. ³And so today, this instant, now, we come to look upon what is forever there; not in our sight, but in the eyes of Christ. ⁴He looks past time, and sees eternity as represented there. ⁵He hears the sounds the senseless, busy world engenders, yet He hears them faintly. ⁶For beyond them all He hears the song of Heaven, and the Voice for God more clear, more meaningful, more near.

³Now is the balance righted, and the scale of judgment left to Him Who judges true. ⁴And in His judgment will a world unfold in perfect innocence before your eyes. ⁵Now will you see it with the eyes of Christ.

We will not judge today. ²We will receive but what is given us from judgment made beyond the world. ³Our practicing today becomes our gift of thankfulness for our release from blindness and from misery. ⁴All that we see will but increase our joy, because its holiness reflects our own. ⁵We stand forgiven in the sight of Christ, with all the world forgiven in our own. ⁶We bless the world, as we behold it in the light in which our Savior looks on us, and offer it the freedom given us through His forgiving vision, not our own. (A Course in Miracles, W-164.1;5:3-5;7. See also ACIM Lesson 164 Insights.)

While we seem to be in this world we need to give priority to our inner vision, the vision of Christ. When we have accepted this as our primary way of perceiving in the world, the things of the world will fade into the background. This is how we live in the world while waking up.

Now we give priority to seeing with Christ’s vision. We remember that only Love is real. His vision shows us the innocence of Love in every brother, for Christ does not judge on appearances in the world. As we accept His judgment in place of the judgments we have harbored from the past, we see cause for happiness and peace instead of depression and discord. This priority is how we remember we one with Him Who is our Source.
