Lesson 266

My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son.

1. Father, You gave me all Your Sons, to be my saviors and my counselors in sight; the bearers of Your holy Voice to me. ²In them are You reflected, and in them does Christ look back upon me from my Self. ³Let not Your Son forget Your holy Name. ⁴Let not Your Son forget his holy Source. ⁵Let not Your Son forget his Name is Yours.

2. This day we enter into Paradise, calling upon God’s Name and on our own, acknowledging our Self in each of us; united in the holy Love of God. ²How many saviors God has given us! ³How can we lose the way to Him, when He has filled the world with those who point to Him, and given us the sight to look on them?

Everyone is my savior, each and every person I meet.

If I am distracted by their personality or feel that I am being attacked, I have the opportunity to ask for Christ Vision so that I can see differently. If the person I am with is loving and supportive, they are saviors as well in their support and encouragement. How could I fail to go home when saviors surround me? We are one with each other, and together we are one with God.

Jesus asks us how we can lose the way to God when He has filled the world with those who point to Him and given us the sight to look on them. I know it doesn’t always feel like everyone is our savior, but Jesus has told us that we hear from another what we want to hear, and so if we don’t hear a savior, it must be that we wanted to hear an enemy. But God has given us sight to see so we can change our minds about what we want, and we will have a different perception of our brother.

And indeed, this is true.

Each person shows me either my own glory or what in me I need to heal so that I can remove the blocks to the Christ within. On those days when I seem to be surrounded by those who would obstruct me, I am grateful for the chance to look with the Holy Spirit at what I am projecting onto them so that I can choose again. At other times it seems that my brothers are there to gently guide me, support me and uplift me.

I am equally grateful and encouraged that I am projecting a truer picture. But either way, I am reminded that my life is my way home. I only need to remember what it is for and not get distracted by the form of the help because even those I love dearly take the form of enemy at times. The circumstances can serve as a roadmap home or as a distraction from my purpose, but as Jesus said, “…(He has) given us the sight to look on them.”

We are one within the Mind of God.

These bodies are not one, so we cannot be bodies. I look at a body with my eyes, but my Heart sees the truth. As we begin to see with the Heart, grievances will become unknown. Who would hold a grievance against an image, a body, or a memory of a story? The sleeping Son that is deciding to awaken calls to me to lovingly support Its efforts. How could I fail to answer that call for love?

Here is something interesting I read in the Bible.

This comes from Mark 9.

Jesus got into a boat and crossed back over to the town where he lived.[a] Some people soon brought to him a crippled man lying on a mat. When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the crippled man, “My friend, don’t worry! Your sins are forgiven.”

Some teachers of the Law of Moses said to themselves, “Jesus must think he is God!”

But Jesus knew what was in their minds, and he said, “Why are you thinking such evil things? Is it easier for me to tell this crippled man that his sins are forgiven or to tell him to get up and walk? But I will show you that the Son of Man has the right to forgive sins here on earth.” So Jesus said to the man, “Get up! Pick up your mat and go on home.” The man got up and went home. When the crowds saw this, they were afraid[b] and praised God for giving such authority to people.

We do have the right to forgive sins here on earth. Our function now is to forgive all belief in sin for ourselves and our brothers. These two must go together since we are, in truth, one. We cannot forgive ourselves without forgiving everyone else, and we cannot forgive them without forgiving ourselves. We can take our place as the Light of the world, or we can continue to hold grievances for as long as we can tolerate the pain of doing so. Eventually, though, we must awaken to what we really are.

Jesus reminds us that grievances keep us from seeing what is right in front of us.

³These figures become the middlemen the ego employs to traffic in grievances. ⁴They stand between your awareness and your brothers’ reality. ⁵Beholding them, you do not know your brothers or your Self. (ACIM, W-73.2:3-5) I don’t care to traffic in grievances anymore. Instead, I want always to remember what he tells us in this lesson. ³How can we lose the way to Him, when He has filled the world with those who point to Him, and given us the sight to look on them? I ask for that sight each time I mistake a holy Son of God.
