Walking with the Guide to Truth

The Holy Spirit needs a happy learner, in whom His mission can be happily accomplished.

To those unhappy learners who would teach themselves nothing, and delude themselves into believing that it is not nothing, the Holy Spirit says, with steadfast quietness:

The truth is true. Nothing else matters, nothing else is real, and everything beside it is not there. Let Me make the one distinction for you that you cannot make, but need to learn. Your faith in nothing is deceiving you. Offer your faith to Me, and I will place it gently in the holy place where it belongs. You will find no deception there, but only the simple truth. And you will love it because you will understand it.

If you would be a happy learner, you must give everything you have learned to the Holy Spirit, to be unlearned for you. And then begin to learn the joyous lessons that come quickly on the firm foundation that truth is true.

All this lies in the Holy Spirit’s plan to free you from the past, and open up the way to freedom for you. For truth is true. What else could ever be, or ever was? This simple lesson holds the key to the dark door that you believe is locked forever. You made this door of nothing, and behind it is nothing. The key is only the light that shines away the shapes and forms and fears of nothing. (A Course in Miracles, T-14.II.1:1;3:2-9;6:1-2;7:1-7. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

An early workbook lesson teaches us that we do not know what anything means. Learning this is fundamental to free ourselves from the world of fear and guilt. Accepting that we do not know what anything means opens our minds to the Holy Spirit’s loving lessons, which help us recognize nothingness for what it is. By accepting the ego’s lessons in separation, we have deceived ourselves into accepting its lies in place of truth. This belief blinds us to the truth and we cannot find our way out without the Holy Spirit’s help.

Learning to question everything we believe and asking the Holy Spirit to shine His Light on it is the path to freedom. The Light He brings from God dissolves the illusion that nothing is something and reveals the truth that only God’s Love is true. Today we walk with Holy Spirit as our Guide in all our doing. He will guide us truly, for He remembers for us that truth is true and nothing else is true.
