The Escape Conflict and Return to Peace

Forgiveness ends the dream of conflict here.

Conflict must be resolved. ²It cannot be evaded, set aside, denied, disguised, seen somewhere else, called by another name, or hidden by deceit of any kind, if it would be escaped. ³It must be seen exactly as it is, where it is thought to be, in the reality which has been given it, and with the purpose that the mind accorded it. ⁴For only then are its defenses lifted, and the truth can shine upon it as it disappears.

Father, forgiveness is the light You chose to shine away all conflict and all doubt, and light the way for our return to You. ²No light but this can end our evil dream. ³No light but this can save the world. ⁴For this alone will never fail in anything, being Your gift to Your beloved Son. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 333. See also ACIM Lesson 333 Insights.)

Conflict is essential to maintaining the ego’s control of part of our mind. It maintains the perception of separation that is the core of the ego thought system. The ego had made myriad forms that disguise conflict. Many of them are very appealing and sometimes seem to alleviate our hunger for specialness, the ego’s substitute for Love. Specialness and Love cannot coexist in the mind of God’s Son. Specialness denies Love’s oneness while Love sees only the innocence of its Self in all things.

We have been attracted to the ego and played its games for so long that we believe its game is reality. But its reality depends on our belief, not fact. We have become unable to distinguish between the reality we perceive based on belief and the changeless fact of God’s Love, which needs no belief. Beliefs can change, facts do not. We need to be taught how to recognize beliefs that are hiding the presence of Love. These lessons are the purpose of the Course.

We dedicate today to being open to the Holy Spirit’s lessons, for we would free ourselves from conflict and return to the peace of God, bringing our brothers with us.
