I want to blame everything else as the source of my pain except what lay in my mind. I place my guilt anywhere I can. I insist where the guilt originates and that could be anywhere.

Now guilt in relationships, that keeps me as far away from the other person and the guilt. Whoa! It is a strange aspect of relationship that Jesus tells me. I think I want to be in a relationship, yet the guilt is so prominent within me that I could never possibly get close to another. And to top it off I will feel guilty.

I have to realize and acknowledge that I placed the guilt there. I am strongly attached to it so I see it everywhere. It places the brick walls between us carefully cemented with its mortar of hate.

I am not who I thought. I will not sue guilt or the past or the blame thereof to keep me in darkness. I accept the Atonement here and now. I no longer accept guilt. Instead I look upon myself with gentleness and love.

In this I can gaze upon everyone with equal, sustaining love. There is no special love. All are equal and the same for all are the One Son combined.

“Beyond the Son of God, and look upon his purity and be still. In quiet, look upon his holiness, and offer thanks unto his Father that no guilt has ever touched him.”

This is my practice. This is my prayer from sun up to sundown. May I know these words as sacred and as truth.

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.
