Here it is again, setting the goal. Peace comes when we offer all of our experiences to the Holy Spirit. Let Him handle it and peace is received. Isn’t this a relief to know we can have peace anytime we want? We have it because we step aside from our petty desires.
Additionally in this section: Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal the Son of God.
I have related this many times in my writings on my life with ACIM. I choose to use whatever situation is in front of me as an opportunity for forgiveness and healing. When I do so, I receive exactly what I requested, HEALING. And what needs healed? My mind. As Jesus continues, it is not the body that needs healed but our mind. Ineed to see beyond the body to what lies within myself and my brother. That being the illumination of truth. Yes, it gets old hearing this, right? We are One. One is all there is. Peace is found within. Etc. But you see, we need these reminders over and over and once again because we forget so readily and rapidly.
I know I have throughout the course of my day, even this morning. How about you?
So take the reminders with love. Embrace faith, grace, the holy instant, your brother and yourself. Don’t belittle yourself for forgetting to practice, or to remember, or that you became angry, or you had forgotten to forgive. Start now at this very moment (yes, again and again if you have to do so) to allow a new start. It only takes that recognition and then, willingness. I assure you for me and for you and for all of us that we will get through this. We will come to know this Course by living this Course through the mistakes and missteps we make. In this, we learn non-judgment and love.
