ACIM Lesson 301 And God Himself shall wipe away all tears. ⁷Father, I will not judge Your world today.
And God Himself shall wipe away all tears.
1. Father, unless I judge I cannot weep. ²Nor can I suffer pain, or feel I am abandoned or unneeded in the world. ³This is my home because I judge it not, and therefore is it only what You will. ⁴Let me today behold it uncondemned, through happy eyes forgiveness has released from all distortion. ⁵Let me see Your world instead of mine. ⁶And all the tears I shed will be forgotten, for their source is gone. ⁷Father, I will not judge Your world today.
2. God’s world is happy. ²Those who look on it can only add their joy to it, and bless it as a cause of further joy in them. ³We wept because we did not understand. ⁴But we have learned the world we saw was false, and we will look upon God’s world today.
We Made Our Own World
The message here is simple. We think we became our own God and made of ourselves something we are not. We made a world that we could call our own and one that would allow us to seek the specialness we thought would make us happy. However, we were wrong about all of it and now we suffer the guilt and fear that was caused by this choice. But all is not lost as there is another world.
This is the happy world that is God’s replacement for the one that is the source of all pain. It is the world that will usher in complete reconciliation with God and bring us to Oneness once more. Our judgment that specialness would be better than Universal Love is what set us on this ill-advised journey. By contrast, the end of judgment shows us the happy world that is the Second Coming.
We Will Lay Down Judgment
The original judgment is symbolized in the world over and over giving us the opportunity to witness how ineffective judgment is. In this way, we come to realize ourselves that we want to lay down judgment. In God’s World, there is no judgment because there is nothing to judge better or worse. Here there is reflected only eternal glorious Reality. I will not waste these judgments when they occur. I will use them to choose again, this time for God and for His Son.
