Christ’s is the vision I will use today.

   Father, Sometimes it seems wearisome to experience the world. Each moment it may seem like the straw that has broke the camel’s back. There’s a puzzling notion that I know I can experience something different however why do I keep choosing the same pain again and again.

   I know a brother whom I care deeply about who appears to be self-centered and selfish in the world. I see this brother with the vision of Christ today. I slip past his unthoughtfulness and unkind gestures, his harsh words, his inconsistencies and even deceit. I slip past it all and listen to Your Voice behind his words, Your Face behind his countenance and Your Light behind his darkness.

   The darkness, the distractions, the addictive behaviors are all camouflaging his True Self. He doesn’t see it for himself. He doesn’t see the obstructions to experiencing and recognizing love in his life. The love that is right there before him. He is surrounded by other brothers that love him so dearly, but yet he does not see the love. He refuses to accept it because he refuses to accept it within himself. And if I am finding pain in watching his own seeming destruction, then I too am concealing the Light of God’s Love from myself.    I extend love to my brother. I extend compassion to my brother. I extend empathy to my brother.

******************

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.
