The Gift That Heals Our Guilt

No call to God can be unheard nor left
unanswered. And of this I can be sure;
His answer is the one I really want.

You Who remember what I really am alone remember what I really want. ²You speak for God, and so You speak for me. ³And what You give me comes from God Himself. ⁴Your Voice, my Father, then is mine as well, and all I want is what You offer me, in just the form You choose that it be mine. ⁵Let me remember all I do not know, and let my voice be still, remembering. ⁶But let me not forget Your Love and care, keeping Your promise to Your Son in my awareness always. ⁷Let me not forget myself is nothing, but my Self is all. (A Course in Miracles, W-358. See also ACIM Lesson 358 Insights.)

The ego offers many “gifts” that appeal to our wish for specialness. These forms have no meaningful content because they deny the oneness of Love. We have taught ourselves to value form over content. We treasure what keeps us bound to the ego.

We need to learn that our true treasure is in God’s gift of all of His Love, without limit. His Voice speaks to us of our true treasure in the language we have taught ourselves to “understand.” So the means to release ourselves from the limitations of the ego is given us in a form we can understand. That gift is always some form of forgiveness applied to our particular need. This forgiveness heals the guilt we carry that is reflected in our perception of the world.

In truth, there is no cause for guilt. Nothing has changed the Love we are as God’s Son. But our investment in form leads us to believe that harm and loss are possible and real. The ego points to the forms accusingly to show us what we have done that demands guilt. The Holy Spirit points to them with happy laughter by showing us nothing really happened. The Son of God is still Love as Love created Him.

Today we welcome the Holy Spirit’s transformative gifts that dispel guilt, for we would awaken to our reality as God’s Son.
