The Answer to Our Only Need

Remember that the Holy Spirit is the Communication Link between God the Father and His separated Sons. If you will listen to His Voice you will know that you cannot either hurt or be hurt, and that many need your blessing to help them hear this for themselves. When you perceive only this need in them, and do not respond to any other, you will have learned of me and will be as eager to share your learning as I am.

The Holy Spirit begins by perceiving you as perfect. Knowing this perfection is shared He recognizes it in others, thus strengthening it in both. Instead of anger this arouses love for both, because it establishes inclusion. Perceiving equality, the Holy Spirit perceives equal needs. This invites Atonement [perfect Love] automatically, because Atonement is the one need in this world that is universal. To perceive yourself this way is the only way in which you can find happiness in the world. That is because it is the acknowledgment that you are not in this world, for the world is unhappy. (A Course in Miracles, T-6.I.19;II.5. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The only need anyone in the world has is for God’s perfect Love. Every distress, apprehension, loneliness or guilt comes from the belief in lack of Love. But lack of Love is only possible in a dream that denies Love. A dream is not real. To awaken from this dream we need to welcome perfect Love by forgiving the ego’s denial of Love. By letting the Holy Spirit guide our perception, we perceive the eternal presence of Love beyond the manifestations of ego’s denial.

As we choose the Holy Spirit’s vision, we offer perfect Love, the Atonement, to our brother in answer to his only true need. As we offer it, we accept it in ourselves. When we bless, we are blessed. Let us join with the Holy Spirit today to offer Love’s blessing to our brothers and learn that we are blessed.
