The Power of True Perception

The world you see is an illusion of a world.

The body’s eyes are therefore not the means by which the real world can be seen, for the illusions that they look upon must lead to more illusions of reality. And so they do. For everything they see not only will not last, but lends itself to thoughts of sin and guilt. While everything that God created is forever without sin and therefore is forever without guilt.

The one correction possible for false perception must be true perception. It will not endure. But for the time it lasts it comes to heal. For true perception is a remedy with many names. Forgiveness, salvation, Atonement, true perception, all are one. They are the one beginning, with the end to lead to oneness far beyond themselves.

This is the shift that true perception brings: What was projected out is seen within, and there forgiveness lets it disappear.

O my brothers, if you only knew the peace that will envelop you and hold you safe and pure and lovely in the Mind of God, you could but rush to meet Him where His altar is. (A Course in Miracles, C-4.1:1;2;3:2-7;6:1;8:1)

The key to forgiveness and healing is recognizing that the thoughts in our mind make the illusionary outer world we perceive. If what we perceive is not eternal, it must be false perception. Instead of perceiving the eternal created by God, we are perceiving an external world of changing illusions which hide God’s changeless Love from our awareness.

We can change our minds about what we want to perceive. Instead of aligning with the ego’s wish for separation to be real, we can align with the Holy Spirit, our true Self. Our true Self is aligned with the Will of God. Its only function is to co-create with God by joining Him in extending Love.

This change occurs in our mind and changes the world we perceive. The seemingly real images of the world are overlooked revealing the oneness of Love the world has hidden. The seeming chaos of the world is more easily dismissed as powerless when it is recognized that it does not represent God and His Reality. It merely represents a wish to deny Love.

When we choose the Holy Spirit’s vision, we choose to accept Love’s Reality. Now we recognize that we are one with every brother. Conflict is impossible. Peace and happiness reign in our world of true perception. We have remembered our Home in Love.
