Awakening is about learning to recognize Love where it now is and always has been. ACIM tells us it is a course in learning how to “see differently,” to tell the difference between truth and illusion. That doesn’t mean being able to look on pain and suffering and see it differently. It means finding the Presence of Love within you that does not see the story of pain and suffering because, in truth, in God’s Creation, it is not there. Do not be tempted to reconcile truth with illusion. They are irreconcilable. To forgive sin is to recognize it cannot co-exist with love and therefore cannot exist at all. Ask to see only what love sees and allow a world of holiness to take the place of a world of fear. This is the miracle of real forgiveness. This is how you exercise your role as a Creator and extender of Truth.
