The Savior’s Vision

To everyone has God entrusted all, because a partial savior would be one who is but partly saved. The holy ones whom God has given you to save are but everyone you meet or look upon, not knowing who they are; all those you saw an instant and forgot, and those you knew a long while since, and those you will yet meet; the unremembered and the not yet born. For God has given you His Son to save from every concept that he ever held.

Yet while you wish to stay in hell [separate from Love’s oneness], how could you be the savior of the Son of God? How would you know his holiness while you see him apart from yours? For holiness is seen through holy eyes that look upon the innocence within, and thus expect to see it everywhere. And so they call it forth in everyone they look upon, that he may be what they expect of him. This is the savior’s vision; that he see his innocence in all he looks upon, and see his own salvation everywhere. He holds no concept of himself between his calm and open eyes and what he sees. He brings the light to what he looks upon, that he may see it as it really is. (A Course in Miracles, T-31.VII.10:4-11:7. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

To be savior to the world, we must first save ourselves. We save ourselves by letting go of (forgiving) the image of ourselves as a separate identity. As long as we hold a wish to have a separate, special identity different from all ‘others,’ we keep ourselves in hell. The illusion of harm and justification for guilt can only appear real to a separate image of our self. Innocence is universal in the oneness of Love.

Letting go of judgment, forgiving all appearances of harm, clears the way for Christ’s vision in our holy mind. When every thought of separation is released, we have accepted our holiness in place of the wish for specialness. Now we see the face of Christ in everyone for we have seen Christ within. We release the false image of our self by bringing all our perceptions to the Holy Spirit to receive His perception in their place. His vision shows us face of Christ in every circumstance. This is how we learn to forgive and be savior to the world.
