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

As we continue to open to the possibility that we can perceive a light within our brothers, the light will begin to reveal itself to you. Every brother that you perceive now has a light shining from him but you see it not because your mind is clouded with misperceptions of reality. You think you are perceiving reality now when you see your brother, but what you see you are really making up.

If you were to focus all of your attention on ignoring what you see now in your brother, but instead attempt to see only the light within him, you will be quite surprised what is revealed to you. The Light that shines from your brothers can be seen as plain as day when the mind is clear and open to the peace of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will show you the truth about everything that seems to surround you. There is only light.

Everything you see around you now is a block to the awareness of Love’s presence. Love and Light are one and the same. Love and Joy and Happiness are all One and the same. You cannot experience one without experiencing the others. When you literally see the Light you will also experience joy and happiness and love at the same time.

Opening our minds to the awareness to Love’s presence is the goal of the Course. It is done through the practice of forgiveness which is practiced in many forms and flavors, but in the end forgiveness really only means one thing, merely letting everything go with your mind.

Excerpt from Lesson 266 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
