The Lesson That Transforms Our World

⁶You who have taught yourself the Son of God is guilty, say not that you cannot learn the simple things salvation teaches you!

The lessons to be learned are only two. ²Each has its outcome in a different world. ³And each world follows surely from its source. ⁴The certain outcome of the [ego’s] lesson that God’s Son is guilty is the world you see. ⁵It is a world of terror and despair. ⁶Nor is there hope of happiness in it. ⁷There is no plan for safety you can make that ever will succeed. ⁸There is no joy that you can seek for here and hope to find. ⁹Yet this is not the only outcome which your learning can produce. ¹⁰However much you may have overlearned your chosen task, the lesson that reflects the Love of God is stronger still. ¹¹And you will learn God’s Son is innocent, and see another world.

The outcome of the lesson that God’s Son is guiltless is a world in which there is no fear, and everything is lit with hope and sparkles with a gentle friendliness. ²Nothing but calls to you in soft appeal to be your friend, and let it join with you. ³And never does a call remain unheard, misunderstood, nor left unanswered in the selfsame tongue in which the call was made. ⁴And you will understand it was this call that everyone and everything within the world has always made, but you had not perceived it as it was. ⁵And now you see you were mistaken. ⁶You had been deceived by forms the call [for Love] was hidden in. ⁷And so you did not hear it, and had lost a friend who always wanted to be part of you. ⁸The soft eternal calling of each part of God’s creation to the whole is heard throughout the world this second lesson brings. (A Course in Miracles, T-31.I.4:6;7:1–8:8. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Think what a loving world we would experience if we recognized every fearful or guilty thought as a call for Love. Our true Nature would automatically respond with Love. An appearance of attack would be transformed with a joyous, loving response. Joy always comes with Love.

We have taught ourselves to give our own meaning to forms in the world. We learned this lesson so thoroughly that we cannot see the forms have no meaning of their own. The ego’s meaning given to forms overshadows the ever-present Light of Love.

The fact that this world and all its forms seems so real confirms that we have a highly developed learning skill. Thankfully this skill can be redirected to learn to undo the false meanings we have given to the world. We can learn to see the forms in the world as calls for Love. This lesson opens our days to joy, peace and love.

Shall we join with each other in the practice of learning the Holy Spirit’s lessons to recognize calls for Love? In this joining we experience the real world where guilt and fear are forgiven and Love guides us moment by moment.
