Ch. 13, IV. The Function of Time

“And now the reason why you are afraid of this course should be apparent. For this is a course on love, because it is about you.”

My function is to heal and to create, yet the ego teaches me the opposite. Of this who would not be confused. Through the ego, I come to believe that Heaven is actually hell so there is the threat of God, His punishment, and the terror of His Love.

The ego continues the focus on guilt. It recalls the past, insists I must pay for the past, yet promises no future except more discontent. The present moment means zilch to the ego. It only lives in the past.

What does the Holy Spirit do for me? He shows me that there is only the here and now. In the here and now there are opportunities for salvation. In these opportunities I can fulfill my function to heal and to create. Here and now.


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.
