The Importance of Forgiveness

The Holy Spirit mediates between illusions and the truth. ²Since He must bridge the gap between reality and dreams, perception leads to knowledge through the grace that God has given Him, to be His gift to everyone who turns to Him for truth. ³Across the bridge that He provides are dreams all carried to the truth, to be dispelled before the light of knowledge. ⁴There are sights and sounds forever laid aside. ⁵And where they were perceived before, forgiveness has made possible perception’s tranquil end.

²The Holy Spirit understands the means you made, by which you would attain what is forever unattainable. ³And if you offer them to Him, He will employ the means you made for exile to restore your mind to where it truly is at home.

From knowledge, where He has been placed by God, the Holy Spirit calls to you, to let forgiveness rest upon your dreams, and be restored to sanity and peace of mind. ²Without forgiveness will your dreams remain to terrify you. ³And the memory of all your Father’s Love will not return to signify the end of dreams has come.

Accept your Father’s gift. ²It is a Call from Love to Love, that It be but Itself. ³The Holy Spirit is His gift, by which the quietness of Heaven is restored to God’s beloved Son. (A Course in Miracles, W-pII.7.1:1-5;3:2–5:3. See also ACIM Lesson 281 Insights.)

By giving our allegiance to the ego, we accept its means to make a world of separation appear real. In truth this is never attainable; but it seems accomplished in dreams. The ego’s thought system does not provide a means to wake up from its dream.

To awaken to the reality of our Home in the Heaven of God’s Love, we need to call upon the Holy Spirit. He knows how to give the means made by the ego a new purpose. Under the Holy Spirit’s guidance, every perception, every experience, is used as a teaching opportunity. If we accept His help, we learn the lesson of Love’s oneness in place of the ego’s belief in separation.

When we accept these lessons, the Course calls it forgiveness. This is the lesson we must learn to awaken to our eternal Home in Love. With the Holy Spirit as our Guide, every day provides steps to heal our minds of mistaken beliefs and remember God as our Creator.
