ACIM Workbook Lesson 250 Let me not see myself as limited. Let me behold the Son of God today, and witness to his glory.
Let me not see myself as limited.
1. Let me behold the Son of God today, and witness to his glory. ²Let me not try to obscure the holy light in him, and see his strength diminished and reduced to frailty; nor perceive the lacks in him with which I would attack his sovereignty.
2. He is Your Son, my Father. ²And today I would behold his gentleness instead of my illusions. ³He is what I am, and as I see him so I see myself. ⁴Today I would see truly, that this day I may at last identify with him.
As I See Another, I See Myself
How is it that I not see myself as limited? Jesus is being very clear here that as I see another, I see myself. I accept my true identity as I accept everyone’s true identity. I don’t look at the bodies and believe that is reality. I don’t look at the personalities and think that is who they are. I don’t look in the mirror or think of the reflection there as me. And any temptation to respond to these images as reality, I give to the Atonement for healing.
A Fragment of a Senseless Dream
I am reminded of what we read in Lesson 153. ³We would not let our happiness slip by because a fragment of a senseless dream happened to cross our minds, and we mistook the figures in it for the Son of God; its tiny instant for eternity. (ACIM, W-153.8:3)
Here are the things I watch for. If I feel impatient with someone, if I feel resentment toward someone, or if I think someone is guilty for something said or done, I know that I have mistaken who they are. If I don’t know who they are, I won’t know who I am because we are one with each other, not as these bodies, but in Spirit, we are one. I can’t afford to judge anyone. The cost is too high. After all, We are creation; we the Sons of God. (ACIM, W-pII.11.4:1)
