Lesson 335 “I choose to see my brotherʹs sinlessness.”
Forgiveness is a choice. I never see my brother as he is, for that is far beyond perception. What I see in him is merely what I wish to see, because it stands for what I want to be the truth. It is to this alone that I respond, however much I seem to be impelled by outside happenings. I choose to see what I would look upon, and this I see, and only this. My brotherʹs sinlessness shows me that I would look upon my own. And I will see it, having chosen to behold my brother in its holy light.
“What could restore Your memory to me except to see my brotherʹs sinlessness? His holiness reminds me that he was created one with me and like myself. In him I find my Self, and in Your Son I find the memory of You as well.”
Lesson 305 “There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.”
Who uses but Christʹs vision finds a peace so deep and quiet, undisturbable and wholly changeless, that the world contains no counterpart. Comparisons are still before this peace. And all the world departs in silence, as this peace envelops it, and gently carries it to truth, no more to be the home of fear. For Love has come, and healed the world by giving it Christʹs peace.
“Father, the peace of Christ is given us, because it is Your Will that we be saved. Help us today but to accept Your gift, and judge it not. For it has come to us to save us from our judgment on ourselves.”
“Father, the truth belongs to me. My home is set in Heaven by Your Will and mine. Can dreams content me? Can illusions bring me happiness? What but Your memory can satisfy Your Son? I will accept no less than You have given me. I am surrounded by Your Love, forever still, forever gentle and forever safe. Godʹs Son must be as You created him.”
Today we pass illusions by. And if we hear temptation call to us to stay and linger in a dream, we turn aside and ask our‐ selves if we, the Sons of God, could be content with dreams, when Heaven can be chosen just as easily as hell, and love will happily replace all fear.
The miracle principles you can find at the beginning of the Urtext Manuscripts of A Course in Miracles, in chapter 1. In the Urtext you can read many of the principles, more than in any other A Course in Miracles version. In the Spiritual Healing class presented today we use some of the principles.
Miracles are thought-creations. Thought can create lower-order or higher order realities. This is the basic distinction between intellectualization and thinking. One creates the physical, the other the spiritual, and we believe in what we create.
Christ inspires all miracles, which are essentially intercessions. They intercede for man’s holiness, and make him holy. They place man beyond the physical laws, and raise him into the sphere of celestial order. In this order, man IS perfect
V1-CH1-B12b and B27d Urtext Manuscripts
In the “blue book” of the Foundation for Inner Peace the miracles principles are differently formulated. Two crucial differences are: Miracles are thought-creations as the Urtext says… the FIP says: Miracles are thoughts. Here is one more: Christ inspires all miracles.. says the Urtext Manuscripts in FIP: I inspire all miracles…
My question to you is: can you feel the difference?
To me it is remarkable. I become so grateful to read the original text, that is what was given us. I am able now to read the original words. Someone meant to leave some of the words out, but for what? To make it more readable? Really?! It’s never too late to read the original version, that is so great!! Thanks for joining in this, I am so grateful!!
Beyond the physical
Like I shared the class we had yesterday was all about metaphysics, beyond physics, beyond your description of the 3D world you perceive. What way is given us to actually experience what is beyond the physical?
I use words of Joel S. Goldsmith from the pamphlet “Metaphysical Healing” and I use the Miracles Healers Handbook. The last book is freely downloadable HERE. Part of it are the miracle principles and part is from the Teachers Manual of A Course in Miracles.
