Remembering We Are God’s Son

Perhaps it is not yet quite clear to you that each decision that you make is one between a grievance and a miracle. ²Each grievance stands like a dark shield of hate before the miracle it would conceal. ³And as you raise it up before your eyes, you will not see the miracle beyond. ⁴Yet all the while it waits for you in light, but you behold your grievances instead.

…every grievance is a block to sight, and as it lifts you see the Son of God where he has always been. ³He stands in light, but you were in the dark. ⁴Each grievance made the darkness deeper, and you could not see.

²We ask [the Holy Spirit] in the holy Name of God and of His Son, as holy as Himself:

³Let me behold my savior in this one You have appointed as the one for me to ask to lead me to the holy light in which he stands, that I may join with him.

What you have asked for cannot be denied. …⁴The Holy Spirit leans from him to you, seeing no separation in God’s Son. ⁵And what you see through Him will free you both. (A Course in Miracles, W-78.1;3:2-4;7:2-3;8:1,4-5. See also ACIM Lesson 78 Insights.)

Our identification with the body as our identity is the basis for all our grievances. The body itself is an expression of the ego’s grievance against God for not offering the specialness the ego demands. All grievances are expressions of an affront to this special image of a separate identity.

We heal this grievance as we let the Holy Spirit help us see the Light of Love beyond the ego’s images of separation. The practice of today’s exercise is an expression of our willingness to let go of our grievance and see past the images of separation to the eternal presence of Love.

We remember we are not a body. We are Love and nothing else; we are forever united with the Love that created us. As we accept help to see the Love in our brothers, we recognize it as a reflection of the Love we are. This exercise, practiced without reservation, can awaken us the the full remembrance that we are God’s Son.
