Ch. 13, II. The Guiltless Son of God

“The ultimate purpose of projection is always to get rid of guilt.”

Guilt is the obstacle that remains in the path of my knowledge and my love for God. The ego demands that I retain the separate identity to prove I am who I am, that is the form, and not what God created in Love.

Projecting guilt onto someone or something prevents me from witnessing the sham for what it is. The guilt is held firmly in place because of my belief in my role of condemning God’s Son. For this, I believe I am guilty and should be reprimanded harshly.

Yet I have not crucified God’s Son – myself and others – just because I believed it is so does not mean it is true. If I uncover this then I am on my way to happiness and peace. Jesus suggests what I can do to achieve this yet I dismiss it. The guilt becomes my weak ally instead of taking Jesus’ strong hand.

One moment soon I will take his hand. I will trust. I will see the chasm I have made on my very own to keep me from God’s love. Jesus bridges that chasm and I arrive safely on the other side.

This may seem to happen again and again with each belief about myself that I question. I question, I accept the Answer. I accept the Atonement. I accept liberation. I accept Love.


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.
