We See What We Treasure

Judgment is but a toy, a whim, the senseless means to play the idle game of death in your imagination. ²But [Holy Spirit’s] vision sets all things right, bringing them gently within the kindly sway of Heaven’s laws. ³What if you recognized this world is an hallucination? ⁴What if you really understood you made it up? ⁵What if you realized that those who seem to walk about in it, to sin and die, attack and murder and destroy themselves, are wholly unreal? ⁶Could you have faith in what you see, if you accepted this? ⁷And would you see it?

Hallucinations disappear when they are recognized for what they are. ²This is the healing and the remedy. ³Believe them not and they are gone. ⁴And all you need to do is recognize that you did this. ⁵Once you accept this simple fact and take unto yourself the power you gave them [by your belief], you are released from them. ⁶One thing is sure; hallucinations serve a purpose, and when that purpose is no longer held they disappear. ⁷Therefore, the question never is whether you want them, but always, do you want the purpose that they serve?

Only two purposes are possible. ²And one is sin, the other holiness. ³Nothing is in between, and which you choose determines what you see. ⁴For what you see is merely how you elect to meet your goal. (A Course in Miracles, T-20.VIII.7:1–8:7;9:1-4. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The ego has one purpose—to make separation from God real. The demand for specialness, which God cannot give, could only seem real in hallucinations of separateness. Our choice to identify with the ego, the wish for specialness, has bound us to its world of illusions. It is a world of conflict because it is the effect of believing that some can have what others do not. What we see with the body, itself an illusion, demonstrates that separation is real. Yet it only seems real in the ego’s fantasies. These fantasies serve the ego’s purpose of denying the truth of our eternal unity in God’s Love.

We can choose another purpose—to join with God’s purpose of being and extending only Love. Love is one, changeless and with no differences. Where there are no differences there are no conflicts, only profound peace and indescribable joy. We can choose this purpose while we still believe in the dream by choosing the Holy Spirit’s vision as our priority.

As we value His vision, we devalue what the body sees. We learn that the body, itself an illusion, only sees meaningless hallucinations. Holy Spirit’s vision shows us only what has meaning—God’s Love. As we value Love over specialness, we see the Love that is our brother and naturally join with It.

Today we remind ourselves that all we really treasure is the Love God created us to be.
