Seeing the Happy Truth in Our Brothers

Vision will come to you at first in glimpses, but they will be enough to show you what is given you who see your brother sinless. ²Truth is restored to you through your desire, as it was lost to you through your desire for something else. ³Open the holy place that you closed off by valuing the “something else,” and what was never lost will quietly return. ⁴It has been saved for you. ⁵Vision would not be necessary had judgment not been made. ⁶Desire now its whole undoing, and it is done for you.

Do you not want to know your own Identity? ²Would you not happily exchange your doubts for certainty? ³Would you not willingly be free of misery, and learn again of joy? ⁴Your holy relationship offers all this to you. …¹⁰Vision is freely given to those who ask to see.

Your brother’s sinlessness is given you in shining light, to look on with the Holy Spirit’s vision and to rejoice in along with Him. ²For peace will come to all who ask for it with real desire and sincerity of purpose, shared with the Holy Spirit and at one with Him on what salvation is. ³Be willing, then, to see your brother sinless, that Christ may rise before your vision and give you joy. ⁴And place no value on your brother’s body, which holds him to illusions of what he is. (A Course in Miracles, T-20.VIII.1:1–2:4,10–3:4. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Relationships become holy when we are willing to let the Holy Spirit’s vision show us the truth beyond the appearance of bodies and what they do in the world. We cannot see truly if we judge a brother by what his body does. To receive the Holy Spirit’s vision we must be willing to give up our obsession with judging. Love does not judge, for it sees only reflections of itself everywhere.

The habit of judging is undone through forgiveness. Forgiveness depends upon our willingness to let go of judgment and accept the vision that shows us Love’s presence. Every day in the world presents opportunities to forgive. Each time we are willing to claim the opportunity we experience at least a taste of the blessing that comes with seeing the presence of Love in our brother and in the world.

As our willingness increases we recognize more of the opportunities available to us to see Love instead of fear, innocence instead of sin. The joy and peace that come with forgiveness motivate us to increase our willingness. Our days are increasingly happy and less stressful, for we see less cause for conflict. More and more we see the happy truth in our brothers that we are united in Love as God’s one Son.
