Day Fifty two
Judgment, guilt and fear or Love, forgiveness, and bliss?
“The miracle makes no distinction among the degrees of misperception. It is a device for perception correction, effective quite apart from the degree or the direction of the error. This is true indiscriminateness.” ACIM.T-1.1.49:1-3
Are we a body with a spirit or a spirit with a body? This is not just a cute or tricky question, the answer makes a big difference to our spiritual development. The answer is that we are a spirit with a body and the body is an illusion because it keeps changing and is merely a vehicle for communication.
Once we realize that we all are Spirit with what appears to be different forms, we realize that we all are One. And this realization is what is miraculous while the forms and their locality make no difference. It is this shift in perception from form and locality to Spirit and nonlocality which is the miracle.
We can choose the ego or the Spirit any time we desire. It makes no difference when or why or what, only the how. We can ask ourselves, “Do I want to go down the path of the ego or the path of the Spirit? Do I want to go down the path of judgment, guilt, and fear or down the path of Love, forgiveness, and bliss?
Today, I will take several moments throughout the day to remind myself that I have a choice. I am a free spirit with the power of intention. Today, I will choose forgiveness and Love.
