Seeing With the Eyes of Love

I am surrounded by the Love of God.

Father, You stand before me and behind, beside me, in the place I see myself, and everywhere I go. You are in all the things I look upon, the sounds I hear, and every hand that reaches for my own. In You time disappears, and place becomes a meaningless belief. For what sur­rounds Your Son and keeps him safe is Love itself. There is no source but this, and nothing is that does not share its holiness; that stands beyond Your one creation, or without the Love which holds all things within itself. Father, Your Son is like Yourself. We come to You in Your Own Name today, to be at peace within Your everlasting Love.

My brothers, join with me in this today. This is salvation’s prayer. Must we not join in what will save the world, along with us? (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 264, W-pII.264. See also ACIM Lesson 264 Insights.)

We need to learn to distrust our interpretations of everything the body perceives. Instead we need to ask of everything, “What does this mean? What is it for?” As we let the Holy Spirit in our mind answer these questions, we will learn to overlook the forms we see. With His help, we will indeed see that we are surrounded by the Love of God. Our brothers become messengers of Love reflecting back to us the Love we are.

As seeing with the eyes of Love becomes our priority, appearances in the world have diminishing effects. Peace is an increasingly predominant state of mind. We know we are safe and loved by a Love that is eternal and unlimited. We rest in the peace of God knowing that we are indeed surrounded by His Love.
