I can give up but what was never real.

   I do not need the illusions that I have made. In sane moments I realize that illusions keep me veiled from the Light of Truth. Through forgiveness, an illusion itself, I am released from all illusions. Through forgiveness, illusions disappear and the Love is seen. Forgiveness is an illusion itself for in Reality it is not needed. Love is Love and nothing else is required. There is nothing then to forgive. But here in this world I made up, I need the reminder that forgiveness offers me.    It is for me to continue to practice forgiveness with everything I experience and see. Forgiving, or letting go may seem like a sacrifice as I may be attached to what a person seemingly did to me in this world. Truly recognizing love is not a sacrifice, but instead a holy gift that I give myself. When I hold on to grievances I am enslaving myself along with the other person. The other person may not even know. In letting go of the chains of grievances, I gladly receive peace within.

Excerpt from Lesson 322 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.
