Our Unbreakable Link with God

God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him. I can see what God wants me to see. [In Truth] I cannot see anything else. Beyond His Will lie only illusions. It is these [illusions] I choose when I think I can see apart from Him. It is these I choose when I try to see through the body’s eyes. Yet the vision of Christ has been given me to replace [illusions]. It is through this vision [of Christ] that I choose to see.

God is the light in which I see. I cannot see in darkness. God is the only light. Therefore, if I am to see, it must be through Him. I have tried to define what seeing is, and I have been wrong. Now it is given me to understand that God is the light in which I see. Let me welcome [Christ’s] vision and the happy world it will show me. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 59, W-pI.59.3-4. See also ACIM Lesson 59 Insights.)

It is helpful to remember that what we seem to see with the body’s eyes is illusion. The body’s eyes cannot see reality because the body and all its parts are illusions. When the Course talks about vision, it is always referring to Christ’s vision, which is in our right mind. It is our right mind that thinks with God. It is our right mind that remains united with our Source. It is our right mind that thinks thoughts of Love and nothing else. As we open our minds to Christ’s vision in our right mind, we see with the Light of God.

The ego (wrong mind) denies the Light of God and so it seems to exist only in darkness, in the absence of God’s Light. The ego’s substitute for vision is illusions with which it populates its darkness. It is only our choice to believe in the ego mind of separation that causes it to dominate our awareness and hide the Light of God.

By the grace of God we are not left without a means to let go of the belief in darkness. The Holy Spirit was given us as an unbreakable link to God’s Light the moment we chose to believe in darkness. As we let the Holy Spirit guide our seeing moment by moment, we learn to recognize the ego’s illusions and let them go. We find our way Home to our Source.
