Moving from Darkness into God’s Light

God is the light in which I see.

You cannot see in darkness, and you cannot make light. You can make darkness and then think you see in it, but light reflects life, and is therefore an aspect of creation. Creation and darkness cannot coexist, but light and life must go together, being but different aspects of creation.

In order to see, you must recognize that light is within, not without. You do not see outside yourself, nor is the equipment for seeing outside you. An essential part of this equipment is the light that makes seeing possible. It is with you always, making vision possible in every circumstance.

…leave behind everything that you now believe, and all the thoughts that you have made up. Properly speaking, this is the release from hell.

…sink into your mind, letting go every kind of interference and intrusion by quietly sinking past them. Your mind cannot be stopped in this unless you choose to stop it. It is merely taking its natural course. Try to observe your passing thoughts without involvement, and slip quietly by them.

Try to think of light, formless and without limit, as you pass by the thoughts of this world. And do not forget that they cannot hold you to the world unless you give them the power to do so. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 4, W-pI.44.1:2-2:4;5:4-5;7:2-5;10:2-3. See also ACIM Lesson 44 Insights.)

The Light of God reveals only the truth because only what is of God is true. The ego is the decision to abandon God and make a private world. But without the Light of God, the ego’s private world dwells in darkness. All that we seem to see with the ego through the body is just made up images. They are not real and are therefore not true. We only seem to see the world of separation because we have invested our belief in it.

We free ourselves from the hell of the ego’s denial of Love by withdrawing our belief in it. Through this practice we release our false identity as a separate self. We free ourselves to identify with our true Self, united with God’s eternal Love. We move out of the darkness into God’s Light and see the truth of our reality in God’s Love.
