Recognizing Our True Treasure

Let us be still an instant, and forget all things we ever learned, all thoughts we had, and every preconception that we hold of what things mean and what their purpose is. ²Let us remember not our own ideas of what the world is for. ³We do not know. ⁴Let every image held of everyone be loosened from our minds and swept away.

Be innocent of judgment, unaware of any thoughts of evil or of good that ever crossed your mind of anyone. ²Now do you know him not. ³But you are free to learn of him, and learn of him anew. ⁴Now is he born again to you, and you are born again to him, without the past that sentenced him to die, and you with him. ⁵Now is he free to live as you are free, because an ancient learning passed away, and left a place for truth to be reborn. (A Course in Miracles, T-31.I.12–13. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The most important lesson we need to learn is that, on our own, we do not know what anything means. There is great resistance to this thought because it seems to threaten everything we value. To help us learn this lesson, the Course shows us in many different ways that what we think is so important and valuable does not give us what we really want. In truth, all we really want is God’s Love. This is our treasure. But nothing in the world can give us the Love we seek.

If we are willing to let the Holy Spirit help us let go of our mistaken values, we will awaken to a treasure so beautiful and bright that nothing in the world comes close to it. Today we say: “Holy Spirit, I open my mind to You. Help me to recognize the valueless so I can make way to receive the Love I yearn for. I want to remember the Self God created as His Son, at one with Him in Love. I want the peace of God. I am grateful for Your help to recognize my true Treasure.”
