ACIM Lesson 266 My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son. 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?
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
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. How could I fail to go home when I am surrounded by saviors? 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 mind about what we want, and we will have a different perception of our brother.
We Can Always Choose Again
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.”
