The Blessing of Christ’s Vision

Christ’s vision has one law. It does not look upon a body, and mistake it for the Son whom God created. It beholds a light beyond the body; an idea beyond what can be touched, a purity undimmed by errors, pitiful mistakes, and fearful thoughts of guilt from dreams of sin. It sees no separation. And it looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and all events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees.

See no one as a body. Greet him as the Son of God he is, acknowledging that he is one with you in holiness.

We practice seeing with the eyes of Christ today. And by the holy gifts we give, Christ’s vision looks upon ourselves as well. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 158, W-pI.158.7;8:3-4;11:3-4. See also ACIM Lesson 158 Insights.)

We open to the vision of Christ by letting go of the past and setting aside our judgments. This is how we welcome Christ’s vision in our minds. Because Christ’s vision sees no one as a body, it gives no meaning to what the body does. Without meaning, the appearance of a body is easily dismissed from our attention so we can see the Light of Love’s creation beyond the empty image.

As we welcome this, what used to disturb our peace fades away and we become aware of the innocence and loveliness of our brother. Now we see with Holy Spirit’s vision and we realize we are seeing a reflection of our Self. We recognize that we share this one Self with everyone. A world that seemed to be fraught with danger and attack becomes a place of safety and of peace. We are blessed as Christ’s vision blesses through us.
