Light + Function x Forgiveness = Salvation. A Course In Miracles!

Ok, here is a brief idea about you and the function you have in this self made dream.

“I am the light of the world.”
“Who is the light of the world except God’s Son? This, then, is merely a statement of the truth about yourself. It is the opposite of a statement of pride, of arrogance, or of self-deception. It does not describe the self-concept you have made. It does not refer to any of the characteristics with which you have endowed your idols. It refers to you as you were created by God. It simply states the truth.”

“the self-concept you have made”…I guess you call this your ego, like it’s some “other” thing that needs to be controlled or gotten rid of or over come, NO! It’s NOTHING!And when you deny who you really are, YOU ARE NOTHING. It’s impossible to teach without some sort of experience because you still think there is something other than you. Which leads us to…

“Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.”
It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light. It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see. Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world. Through your forgiveness does the truth about yourself return to your memory. Therefore in your forgiveness lies your salvation.

Illusions about yourself and the world are one. That is why all forgiveness is a gift to yourself. Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your identity by attacking creation and its Creator. Now you are learning how to remember the truth. For this, attack must be replaced by forgiveness, so that thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death.”

All forgiveness is a gift to yourself. All you are really doing is letting go ( forgiving) the guilt you hold about trying to be separate from God. You can’t BE separate from God but you can THINK you can and suffer from it. You made a world to distract you from the truth of who you really are.

“Let me not forget my function.”
“Today’s idea is merely another way of saying, “Let me not wander into temptation.” The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification for forgetting it. It is the temptation to abandon God and His Son, taking on a physical appearance. It is this which the body’s eyes look upon.

Nothing the body’s eyes seem to see can be anything but a form of temptation, since this was the purpose of the body itself. Yet we have learned that the Holy Spirit has another use for all the illusions you have made, and therefore He sees another purpose in them. To the Holy Spirit, the world is a place where you learn to forgive yourself what you think of as your sins. In this perception, the physical appearance of temptation becomes the spiritual recognition of salvation.”

What a joy to have access to A Course In Miracles, it is such a time saver. Because this is a required course. You will remember and you will return to where you have always and only ever been. This nightmare of separation and death IS over! Thank God.
