Lesson 222
World Holy See is One
Graphic by © Deposit Photos


21 Who in a holy relationship can long remain unholy? The world the holy see is one with them, just as the world the ego looks upon is like itself. The world the holy see is beautiful because they see their innocence in it. They did not tell it what it was; they did not make adjustments to fit their orders. They gently questioned it and whispered, "What are you?" And He Who watches over all perception answered. Take not the judgment of the world as answer to the question, "What am I?"

   Words will mean little now. We use them but
   as guides on which we do not now depend,
   for now we seek direct experience
   of truth alone. The lessons which remain
   are merely introductions to your times
   in which you leave the world of pain and go,
   and enter into peace. Now we begin
   to reach the goal this course has set, and find
   the end towards which our practicing was geared.
   Now we attempt to let the exercise
   be merely a beginning. For we wait
   in quiet expectation for our God
   and Father. He has promised He will take
   the final step Himself. And we are sure
   His promises are kept. We have come far
   along the road. And now we wait for Him.
   We will continue spending time with Him
   each morning and at night, as long as makes
   us happy. We will not consider time
   a matter of duration now. We use
   as much as we will need for the result
   that we desire. Nor will we forget
   our hourly remembrance, in between
   calling to God when we have need of Him
   as we are tempted to forget our goal.
   We will continue with a central thought
   for all the days to come. And we will use
   that thought to introduce our times of rest,
   and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not
   content ourselves with simple practicing
   in the remaining holy instants which
   conclude the year that we have given God.
   We say some simple words of welcome, and
   expect our Father to reveal Himself
   as He has promised. We have called on Him,
   and He has promised that His Son will not
   remain unanswered when he calls on Him.
   Now do we come to Him with but His Word
   upon our minds and hearts. And wait for Him
   to take the step to us that He has told
   us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take
   when we invited Him. He has not left
   His Son in all his madness, nor betrayed
   His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness
   earned Him the invitation that He seeks
   to make you happy? We will offer it,
   and it will be accepted. So our times
   with Him will now be spent. We say the words
   of invitation that His Voice suggests,
   and then we wait for Him to come to us.
   Now is the time of prophesy fulfilled.
   Now are all ancient promises upheld
   and fully kept. No step remains for time
   to separate from its accomplishment.
   For now we cannot fail. Sit silently
   and wait upon your Father. He has willed
   to come to you when you had recognized
   it is your will He do so. And you could
   have never come this far unless you saw,
   however dimly, that it is your will.
   I am so close to you we cannot fail.
   Father, we give these holy times to You
   in gratitude to Him Who taught us how
   to leave the world of sorrow, in exchange
   for its replacement given us by You.
   We look not backward now. We look ahead,
   and fix our eyes upon the journey's end.
   Accept these little gifts of thanks from us,
   as through Christ's vision we behold a world
   beyond the world we made, and take that world
   to be the full replacement for our own.
   And now we wait in silence, unafraid,
   and certain of Your coming. We have sought
   to find our way by following the Guide
   You sent to us. We did not know the way,
   but You did not forget us. And we know
   that You will not forget us now. We ask
   but that Your ancient promises be kept
   which are Your Will to keep. We will with You
   in asking this. The Father and the Son,
   Whose holy Will created all that is,
   can fail in nothing. In this certainty,
   we undertake these last few steps to You,
   and rest in confidence upon Your Love,
   Which will not fail Your Son, who called to You.
   And so we start upon the final part
   of this one holy year, which we have spent
   together in the search for truth and God,
   Who is its its one Creator. We have found
   the way He chose for us, and made the choice
   to follow it as He would have us go.
   His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit
   the darkness of our minds. His Love has called
   to us unceasingly since time began.
   We had a wish that God would fail to have
   the Son whom He created in Himself.
   We wanted God to change Himself, and be
   what we would make of Him. And we believed
   that our insane desires were the truth.
   Now we are glad that this is all undone,
   and we no longer think illusions true.
   The memory of God is shimmering
   across the wide horizons of our minds.
   A moment more, and It will rise again.
   A moment more, and we who are God's Son
   are safely home, where He would have us be.
   Now is the need for practice almost done.
   For in this final section we will come
   to understand that we need only call
   to God, and all temptations disappear.
   Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.
   Instead of prayers, we need but call His Name.
   Instead of judging, we need but be still
   and let all things be healed. We will accept
   the way God's plan will end, as we received
   the way it started. Now is it complete.
   This year has brought us to eternity.
   One further use for words we still retain.
   From time to time, instructions on a theme
   of special relevance will intersperse
   our daily lessons and the periods
   of wordless, deep experience which should
   come afterwards. These special thoughts should be
   reviewed each day, each one of them to be
   continued till the next is given you.
   They should be slowly read and thought about
   a little while, preceding one of the
   holy and blessed instants in the day.
   We give the first of these instructions now.

What is Forgiveness


Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio 


   Forgiveness recognizes what you thought
   your brother did to you has not occurred.
   It does not pardon sins, and make them real.
   It sees there was no sin. And in this view
   are all your sins forgiven. What is sin
   except a false idea of God's Son?
   Forgiveness merely sees its falsity,
   and therefore lets it go. What then is free
   to take its place is now the Will of God.
   An unforgiving thought is one which makes
   a judgment that it will not raise to doubt,
   although it is untrue. The mind is closed,
   and will not be released. The thought protects
   projection, tightening its chains, so that
   distortions are more veiled and more obscure;
   less easily accessible to doubt,
   and further kept from reason. What can come
   between a fixed projection and the aim
   that it has chosen as its needed goal?
   An unforgiving thought does many things.
   In frantic action it pursues its goal,
   twisting and overturning what it sees
   as interfering with its chosen path.
   Distortion is its purpose, and the means
   by which it would accomplish it as well.
   It sets about its furious attempts
   to smash reality without concern
   for anything that would appear to pose
   a contradiction to its point of view.
   Forgiveness, on the other hand, is still
   and quietly does nothing. It offends
   no aspect of reality, nor seeks
   to twist it to appearance that it likes.
   It merely looks and waits and judges not.
   He who would not forgive must judge, for he
   must justify his failure to forgive.
   But he who would forgive himself must learn
   to welcome truth exactly as it is.
   Do nothing, then, and let forgiveness show
   you what to do through Him Who is your Guide,
   your Saviour and Defender, strong in hope
   and certain of your ultimate success.
   He has forgiven you already, for
   such is His function, given Him by God.
   Now must you share His function, and forgive
   whom He has saved, whose sinlessness He sees,
   and whom He honors as the Son of God. "

God is with me.
I live and breathe* in Him. 

Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio

   God is with me. He is my Source of life,
   the life within, the air I breathe, the food
   by which I am sustained, the water which
   supports and cleanses me. He is my home,
   wherein I live and move; the Spirit Which
   directs my actions, offers me Its Thoughts,
   and guarantees my safety from all pain.
   He covers me with kindness and with care,
   and holds in love the Son He shines upon,
   who also shines on Him. How still is he
   who knows the truth of what He speaks today!
    Father, we have no words except Your Name
    upon our lips and in our minds, as we
    come quietly into Your Presence now,
    and ask to rest with You in peace a while.

ACIM Edmonton - Sarah's Reflections 
ACIM Edmonton, CA
God is with me. I live and move* in Him.

Sarah's Commentary:  

When Jesus says God is the air I breathe, the food by which I am sustained, and the water which renews and cleanses me, he is talking in beautiful metaphors. It is a way of saying that God is our Source of life, and since we think of life as being sustained by food, water, and air, our sustenance by God is akin to that. We experience the body as our home. We want God to join us in our reality to make our lives happier. In other words, we want to add spirituality to our lives so we can hold onto what we value about our lives yet still include God. Spirituality thus becomes an add-on to our lives.
To awaken is to remember that our only home and our only happiness is in God. Healing is not about bringing more light to the darkness. It is about bringing our false thoughts (our darkness) to the light. It is only in this way that the veil is lifted so we can experience transformation and come to know our reality.
What we think of as life is not what it is. The truth is that we have no life but God's. I function as if I were contained in a body and separate from others, trying to find my way in the world, trying to be successful at what I do, and doing my best to be happy. I try to be as good as I know how to be toward people around me and do my best to try to find my way back to God. But magnitude can only be experienced when we surrender our idea of finding God. This requires a strong focus and desire for Truth. Where is the desire to know your holiness in your list of what you want?
We cannot come to God if we think we know the way. "Think not that you can find salvation in your own way and have it. Give over every plan you have made for your salvation in exchange for God's." (T.15.IV.2.5-6) (ACIM OE T.15.V.36) We must trust that the way will open to us, as we are willing to forgo our plans and undo all that stands in the way. It is the simple recognition that we have never left Him. There is nowhere to go. Our only job is to bring awareness to what blocks us from the light. This means that we must look at our thoughts, recognize our judgments, notice our grievances, and see how we defend against the truth. "It is your thoughts alone that cause you pain. Nothing external to your mind can hurt or injure you in any way. There is no cause beyond yourself that can reach down and bring oppression. No one but yourself affects you." (W.190.5.1-4)
The truth is in our right minds. Our Teacher, the Holy Spirit within, is always available to us. His presence becomes known to us when the motivation is strong to release the obstacles that block the truth. We must want the truth in order to commit ourselves to this process. The undoing of false perception is a choice. It all starts with willingness.
The first part of the Workbook is about undoing our wrong-minded perception. Through this process, we are given an opportunity to see that there is another option available to us. Until we were given this teaching in which the two thought systems in our minds were described, we were only aware of the voice of the ego, which seemed to be the only voice in us. This voice constitutes the conditioned mind. Now we are aware of another Voice within us that can only be heard when the voice of the ego is set aside. The voice of the ego speaks first, is obsessive, loud, and persistent. Training and discipline are required to ignore this voice because it is very familiar to us and seems to be what we are.
When Jesus says, "He is my home, wherein I live and move," (W.222.1.3) it is again a statement of our true home with God from which we have never separated in truth. I remember, as a little girl sitting in church, asking God to reveal Himself to me, and when I did not get any "sign", I finally gave up on the whole notion of God, even though somewhere inside I always had a strong sense of a spiritual presence. I did not know where to look to get some confirmation of the feeling of this presence. I did not know to look in my own mind. I did not know the presence of God was as close to me as my own breath. I did not know that it was a matter of uncovering the unforgiving thoughts in my mind so Love would be revealed to me as my Self. My life is God's Life. My right-minded thoughts are God's thoughts. There is no one to seek and no one to save us. We must do the work of undoing what we have made that keeps us from the awareness that we are One with Him---now. All we need to do is to apply this teaching to our daily lives and His Presence in us can then be experienced. What a relief that is! What a comfort!
Take in the words, "He covers me with kindness and with care, and holds in love the Son He shines upon, who also shines on Him." (W.222.1.4) These are such powerfully loving thoughts. I think of God offering safety in all circumstances, always holding me up and protecting me, no matter how the situation might look. Feel the power and beauty this thought conveys and know this can only come as a result of a deep contentment. When we are not content and feel restless, we seek for something that we can never find. This is the substitute reality that Jesus talks about, where we turn to idols of specialness that we think will make us happy. Until we learn where our peace and happiness lie, we will keep looking for it where it cannot be found. We finally become disillusioned, which is a good thing. It can be a gift that takes us in a new direction to find a better way. The answer is given when the mind is open and willing to listen within.
Loneliness has been such a big part of my life, and it certainly is a condition of the state of separation. Yet now I have a growing recognition and acceptance that I am truly never alone. He walks with me and always has. Having an experience of His presence ends the longing. Knowing the steps to take to open up to the awareness of His presence, which are clearly laid out in this Course, reconnect us to our hearts. Any feelings of being cut off, of being alone in the world, of having no support, and of being separate from everyone else are healed in this process when we lay them on the inner altar to be healed. The Holy Spirit does the work of dissolving what we bring to His healing Light. We cannot fix ourselves. We must trust that it is done without our interference.
We make but one choice over and over again in the Course. It is the choice to remember who we are. We are making this one choice over a series of small steps that we take, but it is always the same choice. We are always choosing between truth and illusion, between love and fear, between forgiveness and attack, and between Heaven and hell. There is no urgency, no rush, and no expectation put on us, as we remember to be loving and gentle with ourselves in this process. Feeling guilty for any lack of progress is still part of the ego game to keep us in hell.
It is hard to remember that it is not helpful to think that we can judge or fix ourselves or try to make ourselves holy; but we can look at these thoughts and smile with recognition at their nothingness. We just need to be willing to look at them unflinchingly and then turn them over. Looking from outside of the dream, with the love of Jesus, we can smile, as we recognize that the characters in the dream and the situations we encounter are all illusory. Yes, they seem very serious to us in the experience of the dream, but from a higher vantage point, with no judgments of good or bad and right or wrong, we can see it all differently. Indeed, it all becomes a perfect classroom for healing, as long as we keep our minds focused on the blessing available behind every seeming problem.
We are now attempting to go beyond words to experience, as we continue to do the forgiveness work by clearing the thoughts that come up in our minds and disturb our peace. We enter the holy instant so we can bring peace with us into the world wherever we go today. If we lose our peace because of someone or something that seems to disturb us, we redirect our thoughts, remembering that "God is with me. I live and move in Him." (W.222)
It does not matter how busy we are with the doings of the world. The focus is not on what we are doing but what thoughts we are holding in our minds as we do what we do. Thoughts that block our awareness of the truth are what we bring to the Holy Spirit, asking Him to help us. We do this by constantly asking for guidance. "Holy Spirit, help me to see this situation from Your perspective. Help me to know how to respond. Help me not to use my own idea of what to do. Guide me in what to say and what to do. Show me the way." With our willingness, in each moment that we turn to Him, the ego becomes increasingly irrelevant. To use time in this way is to use it for a higher purpose. Time can waste us as well as be wasted. "The basic decision of the miracle-minded is not to wait on time any longer than is necessary. Time can waste as well as be wasted." (T.1.V.2.1-2) (ACIM OE T.1.I.87)
Let us be reminded, as in paragraph two of the Section "What is Forgiveness?" (W.PII.Q1.2.1), all we need to do today with any judgments we make is to raise them to doubt. "Perhaps there is another way to look at this. What can I lose by asking?" (T.30.I.12.3-4) (ACIM OE T.30.II.26) We question our judgments by affirming, "I do not know the thing I am, and therefore do not know what I am doing, where I am, or how to look upon the world or on myself." (T.31.V.17.7) (ACIM OE T.31.V.60) Thus, we raise to doubt our need to be right about everything and instead open ourselves to happiness. "Do you prefer that you be right [about the way you set up reality] or happy" (T.29.VII.1.9) (ACIM OE T.29.VIII.43) by remembering the truth of who you are and who your brother is? We raise our judgments to doubt. We acknowledge that the way we have set up reality, and have stubbornly refused to question our perceptions, has kept us in hell. Perhaps there is another way to look at this situation or this person. Perhaps I have been wrong. Perhaps I have been stubbornly choosing against my own happiness because I justified my way of seeing this situation or this person. Now I am giving up my opinions and my need to be right. I am stepping back from my stories and not justifying my interpretations.
"I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace. I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise. I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace. I do not feel guilty, because the Holy Spirit will undo all the consequence of my wrong decision if I will let Him. I choose to let Him, by allowing Him to decide for God for me." (T.5.VII.6.7-11) (ACIM OE T.5.IX.96)
Releasing our way allows us to be shown another way. To see God is to see our brother's holiness. We can only experience our brother's innocence by releasing our grievances. We have many people in our lives with whom we can practice this. They include our parents, children, siblings, partners, politicians, and all of our special love and special hate relationships. Our special function in this world is all about forgiving these special relationships that are part of our curriculum. We do so by looking at our thoughts, judgments, beliefs, and attitudes toward them as they come up and willingly releasing them to the Holy Spirit. This is the work of forgiveness that we are here to do. All these thoughts are projections coming from our own minds, based on our own self-judgments, self-hatred, and self-attacks. They are what we do not want to acknowledge in ourselves, so we project onto others and see the guilt in them. All we see in anyone is an outward picture of our own inner condition. We are not at the mercy of the world. We need do nothing but look at our thoughts and be willing to surrender them. It requires desire and courage to be very honest with ourselves. When we find our mind defending, denying, justifying, or projecting, we must remember that we are choosing to be right, rather than happy.
We cannot do the forgiveness work without understanding the metaphysics of the Course. It makes no sense to be told, "Forgiveness recognizes what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred" (W.PII.Q1.1.1) when we are so certain that we are right about what our brother has done, based on our senses. Our senses were made to keep our focus outward on the world. The whole point here is to recognize that there is no world and that we are all figures in a dream. Thus, what I see "out there" is just a thought projected from my mind and acted out in my brother, based on a false idea of God's Son as a separate being and different from me. Instead of seeing with my eyes, made by the ego to show me a world that does not exist, Jesus is asking me to look through his eyes and to doubt how I see anything. It requires giving up the idea that I am right. It means raising my judgments to doubt. "It [forgiveness or the miracle] merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false." (W.PII.Q13.1.3)
Jesus talks about this in the Manual for Teachers, in the Section "Open-Mindedness," (M.4.X) as follows: "As judgment shuts the mind against God's Teacher, so open-mindedness invites Him to come in. As condemnation judges the Son of God as evil, so open-mindedness permits him to be judged by the Voice for God on His behalf." (M.4.X.1.3-4) (ACIM OE M.4.23)
Every time we let a brother off the hook for what we think that he has done, we release him from the prison we have put him in. It takes a willingness on our part to let go of our own distorted perceptions. To be open-minded is to close the door on our own interpretations and only be open to those of the Holy Spirit. "Father, my mind is open to Your Thoughts, and closed today to every thought but Yours." (W.PII.236.2.1) This transition, from our judgment of guilt to the Holy Spirit's verdict of innocence, is just another way of talking about forgiveness.
If we ever thought we had achieved complete forgiveness with someone, according to this Section in the Manual, we have not and will not until we reach the end of the journey. So let us not get discouraged about our progress in the Course. As long as we are here, we have work to do in releasing our judgments. Welcome this opportunity, instead of judging yourself for your judgments. "Forgiveness is the final goal of the curriculum." (M.4.X.2.9) (ACIM  OE M.4.24)
"Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed. " (W.189.7.1­3)
With judgment set aside, "What then is free to take its place is now the Will of God." (W.PII.Q1.1.7)
Love and blessings, Sarah

The Promise of the Resurrection 
   Voice and Music by Martin Weber, CIMS SonShip Radio

IV. Sin as an Adjustment  

16 The belief in sin is an adjustment. And an adjustment is a change; a shift in perception or a belief that what was so before has been made different. Every adjustment is therefore a distortion and calls upon defenses to uphold it against reality. Knowledge requires no adjustment and in fact is lost if any shift or change is undertaken. For this reduces it at once to mere perception-a way of looking in which certainty is lost and doubt has entered. To this impaired condition are adjustments necessary because they are not true. Who need adjust to truth, which calls on only what he is, to understand?
17 Adjustments of any kind are of the ego. For it is the ego's fixed belief that all relationships depend upon adjustments to make of them what it would have them be. Direct relationships, in which there are no interferences, are always seen as dangerous. The ego is the self-appointed mediator of all relationships, making whatever adjustments it deems necessary and interposing them between those who would meet to keep them separate and prevent their union. It is this studied interference which makes it difficult for you to recognize your holy relationship for what it is.
18 The holy do not interfere with truth. They are not afraid of it, for it is within the truth they recognized their holiness and rejoiced at what they saw. They looked on it directly, without attempting to adjust themselves to it or it to them. And so they saw that it was in them, not deciding first where they would have it be. Their looking merely asked a question, and it was what they saw that answered them. You make the world and then adjust to it, and it to you. Nor is there any difference between yourself and it in your perception, which made them both.
19 A simple question yet remains and needs an answer. Do you like what you have made-a world of murder and attack through which you thread your timid way through constant dangers, alone and frightened, hoping at most that death will wait a little longer before it overtakes you and you disappear? You made this up. It is a picture of what you think you are, of how you see yourself. A murderer is frightened, and those who kill fear death. All these are but the fearful thoughts of those who would adjust themselves to a world made fearful by their adjustments. And they look out in sorrow from what is sad within and see the sadness there.
20 Have you not wondered what the world is really like; how it would look through happy eyes? The world you see is but a judgment on yourself. It is not there at all. Yet judgment lays a sentence on it, justifies it, and makes it real. Such is the world you see-a judgment on yourself and made by you. This sickly picture of yourself is carefully preserved by the ego, whose image it is and which it loves, and placed outside you in the world. And to this world must you adjust, as long as you believe this picture is outside and has you at its mercy. This world is merciless, and were it outside you, you should indeed be fearful. Yet it was you who made it merciless, and now if mercilessness seems to look back at you, it can be corrected.
21 Who in a holy relationship can long remain unholy? The world the holy see is one with them, just as the world the ego looks upon is like itself. The world the holy see is beautiful because they see their innocence in it. They did not tell it what it was; they did not make adjustments to fit their orders. They gently questioned it and whispered, "What are you?" And He Who watches over all perception answered. Take not the judgment of the world as answer to the question, "What am I?"
22 The world believes in sin, but the belief that made it as you see it is not outside you. Seek not to make the Son of God  adjust to his insanity. There is a stranger in him who wandered carelessly into the home of truth, and who will wander off. He came without a purpose, but he will not remain before the shining light the Holy Spirit offered and you accepted. For there the stranger is made homeless and you are welcome.
23 Ask not this transient stranger, "What am I?" He is the only thing in all the universe that does not know. Yet it is he you asked, and it is to his answer that you would adjust. This one wild thought, fierce in its arrogance and yet so tiny and so meaningless it slips unnoticed through the universe of truth, becomes your guide. To it you turn to ask the meaning of the universe. And of the one blind thing in all the seeing universe of truth you ask, "How shall I look upon the Son of God?"
24 Does one ask judgment of what is totally bereft of judgment? And if you have, would you believe the answer and adjust to it as if it were the truth? The world you look on is the answer that it gave you, and you have given it power to adjust the world to make its answer true. You asked this puff of madness for the meaning of your unholy relationship and adjusted it according to its insane answer. How happy did it make you? Did you meet with joy to bless the Son of God and give him thanks for all the happiness which he held out to you? Did you recognize each other as the eternal gift of God to you? Did you see the holiness that shone in both of you to bless the other? That is the purpose of your holy relationship. Ask not the means of its attainment of the one thing that still would have it be unholy. Give it no power to adjust the means and end.
25 Prisoners bound with heavy chains for years, starved and emaciated, weak and exhausted and with eyes so long cast down in darkness they remember not the light, do not leap up in joy the instant they are made free. It takes a while for them to understand what freedom is. You groped but feebly in the dust and found each other's hand, uncertain whether to let it go or to take hold on life so long forgotten. Strengthen your hold and raise your eyes unto your strong companion, in whom the meaning of your freedom lies. He seemed to be crucified beside you. And yet his holiness remained untouched and perfect, and with him beside you, you shall this day enter with him to Paradise and know the peace of God.
26 Such is my will for both of you and for each of you for one another and for himself. Here there is only holiness and joining without limit. For what is Heaven but union, direct and perfect, and without the veil of fear upon it? Here are we one, looking with perfect gentleness upon each other and on ourselves. Here all thoughts of any separation between us become impossible. You who were prisoners in separation are now made free in Paradise. And here would I unite with you, my friends, my brothers, and my Self. Your gift unto each other has given me the certainty our union will be soon.
27 Share, then, this faith with me and know that it is justified. There is no fear in perfect love because it knows no sin and it must look on others as on itself. Looking with charity within, what can it fear without? The innocent see safety, and the pure in heart see God within His Son and look unto the Son to lead them to the Father. And where else would they go but where they will to be? Each of you now will lead the other to the Father as surely as God created His Son holy and kept him so. In your brother is the light of God's eternal promise of your immortality. See him as sinless, and there can be no fear in you.
