The Means to Remember God’s Peace

Freedom is given you where you beheld but chains and iron doors. ²But you must change your mind about the purpose of the world, if you would find escape. ³You will be bound till all the world is seen by you as blessed, and everyone made free of your mistakes and honored as he is. ⁴You made him not; no more yourself. ⁵And as you free the one, the other is accepted as he is.

There is no peace except the peace of God, because He has one Son who cannot make a world in opposition to God’s Will and to his own, which is the same as His.

Peace is the bridge that everyone will cross, to leave this world behind. ²But peace begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond. ³Peace is the answer to conflicting goals, to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits, and meaningless endeavors. ⁴Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God. (A Course in Miracles, W-200.5;7:1;8. See also ACIM Lesson 200 Insights.)

To honor our brother as he is, we must perceive him as Love. The body still sees the brother as a body.

But with true perception, we overlook the body and what it appears to do, remembering he is Love and nothing else.

The world is populated by perceptions that originate in our own mind. Thus the perception of our brothers reflects back to us what we believe about ourselves. The recognition of this reflection is key to our healing of our disordered mind. It shows us our mistaken beliefs that need to be healed. As we let the Holy Spirit help us heal our misperceptions of our brothers, our own mind is healed. The unity we share with our brother is accepted.

As we join with the Holy Spirit’s purpose, the world becomes our classroom in which we learn to let go of our mistaken wishes for specialness in all its forms. Every encounter is holy when we let the Holy Spirit use it as a teaching opportunity and accept His lesson. This is the purpose for our journey now. It is the means to remember the peace of God is our Home.
