A Course In Miracles – Your Simple Lesson Of Salvation.

Whilst sitting on the couch this morning, I crack the book and are given this lesson from Jesus. You have to understand that my transformation has taken on a more individual, one on one sense of teaching/learning. In a true sense it was always that way but before it appeared there was a group of people doing the same thing as me. So now I awake in the morning and sit by the window and look out on a bleak and windy November morning and I feel winter approaching and there is always a moment of depression at the thought of the cold and dark days ahead. Yet, the lesson my Savior would have me learn continues unabated, for He knows all of salvation lies in learning this one simple lesson.

“How simple is salvation! All it says is what was never true is not true now, and never will be. The impossible has not occurred, and can have no effects. And that is all. Can this be hard to learn by anyone who WANTS it to be true? ONLY unwillingness to learn it could make such an easy lesson difficult….”

Hmm, Only UNWILLINGNESS. Sound familiar? Until you are able to see the FULL extent of your authority problem you will continue to believe there is something/someone outside yourself forcing or imposing situations on you. And subsequently you WILL use the concepts of A Course In Miracles to defend what you think you have learned. For both our sakes I wouldn’t continue to do that.

“How hard is it to see that what is false can not be true, and what is true can not be false? You can no longer say that you perceive no differences in false and true. You have been told exactly how to tell one from the other, and just what to do if you become confused. Why, then, do you persist in learning not such simple things?”

Because you want to,Period!

Jesus, in this lesson , will go on to tell us how we made the world so we could learn and teach that our will is not our own, our thoughts do not belong to us and that we even think we are someone else. And that is what has been learned and taught over and over and over again. The power which is being used to learn this strange and meaningless lesson can also be used to learn the Truth.

I don’t want to take Jesus’ thunder but let’s cut to chase. You will perceive God’s Son as either guilty or innocent. The effect of what YOU HAVE ALREADY DECIDED will be seen in the world around you.

“….Each has its outcome in a different world. And each world follows surely from its source. The certain outcome of the lesson that God’s Son is guilty is the world you see. It IS a world of terror and despair. Nor is there hope of happiness in it. There is no plan for safety you can make that ever will succeed. There is no joy that you can seek for here, and hope to find. But this is not the only outcome which your learning can produce. However much you may have overlearned your chosen task, the lesson which reflects the Love of God is stronger still. And you WILL learn God’s Son is innocent, and see another world.”

“The outcome of the lesson that God’s Son is guiltless is a world in which there is no fear, and everything is lit with hope, and sparkles with a gentle friendliness. Nothing but calls to you in soft appeal to be your friend, and let it join with you. And never does a call remain unheard, misunderstood, or left unanswered in the language in which the call itself was made. And you will understand it was this call that everyone and everything within the world has ALWAYS made. But you had not perceived it as it was. And now you see you were mistaken. You had been deceived by forms the call was hidden in. And so you did not hear it, and had lost a friend who always wanted to be part of you.”

Ok, now the hard part, which could only be hard BECAUSE you DON’T WANT TO DO IT… APPLICATION! This is the reason why the Mind Training is so crucial to your awakening. You are already seeing the effects that you DO believe God’s Son (which is your brother/you) GUILTY! Yet it is gone, HELD in time by you.

“What is temptation but a wish to make the wrong decision on what you would learn, and have an outcome which you do not want? It is the recognition that it is a state of mind unwanted that becomes the means whereby the choice is reassessed; another outcome seen to be preferred.”

The bold is my emphases because I am YELLING! LOL! Here is where it can be seen anew. But you HAVE TO WANT IT. You have to be willing to see that you ARE WRONG and have taught yourself and your brother some pretty crappy lessons. Yet NOW, here, IN TIME is where it can and must be and was corrected. Not by you but through your willingness to allow it to change in you.

“You are deceived if you believe you want disaster and disunity and pain. Hear not the call for this within yourself. But listen, rather, to the deeper call beyond it, that appeals for peace and joy. And all the world will GIVE you joy and peace. For as you hear you answer, and behold! – your answer is the proof of what you learned. Its outcome is the world you look upon.”

Once again, it has to be an action in your mind, stopping…”I don’t know what this is”… “Help me hear/see/learn of your Son’s innocence Father”.

I’ll let Jesus have the last word but let me say that I love you, I know who you are and the moment you forget becomes an opportunity to reassess.

“Let us be still an instant, and forget all things we ever learned, all thoughts we had, and every preconception that we hold of what things mean, and what their purpose is. Let us remember not our own ideas of what the world is for. We do not know. Let every image held of anyone be loosened from our minds and swept away. Be innocent of judgment, unaware of any thoughts of evil or of good that ever crossed your mind of anyone. Now do you know him not. But you ARE free to learn of him, and learn of him anew. Now is he born again to you, and you are born again to him, without the past that sentenced him to die, and you with him. Now is he free to live, as you are free, because an ancient learning passed away, and left a place for truth to be reborn.”

  1. Not that it’s a surprise, but I was just reading this very lesson yesterday. Putting it in practice as often as possible. I’ve been using this prayer regularly as I remember it in ‘stressful forgiveness lesson’ situations too: “Take this from me and look upon it, judging it for me. Let me not see it as a sign of sin and death, nor use it for destruction. Teach me how not to make of it an obstacle to peace, but to let you use it for me, to facilitate its coming.” πŸ™‚

    1. Yes Amanda, it truely comes down to application brought about from

        necessity

      . The more you know yourself, the more you realize just how much help you need.
      Nice to remember your Reality is already set by God and it has nothing to do sickness, pain and death.

      Shine On!

      1. Hey Tony,

        I like your way of saying “listen to the deeper call beyond it”.
        This is such a great article.
        I’ve been reading about salvation in acim, which is how I found your site.
        I like this article too, it’s called “Salvation is here”
        it’s at ||http://jenniferhadley.com/ but then go to ||http://jenniferhadley.com/2012/05/salvation-is-here/
        I also found one on an Irish acim website, but I can’t find it.
        Oh and this is great: “UNWILLINGNESS. Sound familiar? ”
        haha πŸ™‚
        Thanks Tony!
