The Reward Forgiveness Offers

³Errors are of the ego, and correction of errors lies in the relinquishment of the ego.”

Your brother’s errors are not of him, any more than yours are of you. ²Accept his errors as real, and you have attacked yourself. ³If you would find your way and keep it, see only truth beside you for you walk together. ⁴The Holy Spirit in you forgives all things in you and in your brother.

The Holy Spirit forgives everything because God created everything. ²Do not undertake His function, or you will forget yours. ³Accept only the function of healing in time, because that is what time is for. ⁴God gave you the function to create [extend Love] in eternity. ⁵You do not need to learn that, but you do need to learn to want it. ⁶For that all learning was made. ⁷This is the Holy Spirit’s use of an ability that you do not need, but that you made. ⁸Give [learning] to Him! ⁹You do not understand how to use it. ¹⁰He will teach you how to see yourself without condemnation, by learning how to look on everything without it. ¹¹Condemnation will then not be real to you, and all your errors will be forgiven. (A Course in Miracles, T-9.III.2:3;7:1-4;8. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

We identify with the ego because it seems to give us the specialness we think we want. Because specialness cannot exist in the oneness of Love, we can only get what we want in a dream that denies reality. We pay a steep price for choosing the ego as our guide. We lose awareness of the Love we are and seem to live in a world of fear. The ego condemns everything it makes but the Love we are sees only Itself everywhere.

When we forgive the wish for specialness, we remember we are Love. We taught ourselves to forget our Identity. Because of this, we need a Teacher from outside this belief system to learn that the world of fear and separation is not real. The ultimate lesson leads to the full remembrance that we are Love, created by Love, unchangeable and eternally one.

Today we remind ourselves frequently to ask the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts, our words and our actions. Under His guidance, we will remember we are Love and nothing else.
