Ch. 13, VI. Finding the Present

I must perceive everyone as they are in the shining NOW moment. I never see anyone truly as I have attached the past to my vision, good or bad, but mostly my negative interpretation.

Yet somehow I think this is natural, to recall to memory the catalog of sins when I meet someone again. This isn’t natural, as Jesus tells me it is delusional. Forever would I keep my brothers in chains, especially those who I perceived have wronged me. Yet, I am in chains as well.

I keep focused on the shadows of the past because I am afraid of what the present light could show me. My brothers is not in shadows. It is my mind that is.

I choose the miracle to envision my brother in the light of which he truly stands forever in truth, forever free.

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.
