A Course in Miracles: Lesson 351
The final rubric of the year asks, “What am I?” And the answer is, “I am God’s Son, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love.” If this were the only thing I learned in my year of lessons, it would be healing enough.
When I know what I am it changes everything. I know what I am and see the whole world differently. I know what I am and accept responsibility for my self. I know what I am and I see who you are.
“My sinless brother is my guide to peace.”
My sinful brother is my guide to pain.
And which I choose to see I will behold.”
Each one of us is living her moment of expression. It’s called life. And each one of us is loved by the divine whatever form our expression may take. So long as I know you are worthy of love, I align to the possibility that I am also worthy. How I am willing to see you is a direct reflection of how I am willing to see myself.
Now this does not mean I can do whatever I want and get away with it, because how I treat you is also reflection of the way I wish to be treated. It’s simple physics. Nor does it mean I have to sing your praises if you’ve just robbed the bank. It does mean I have to honor you in your worth. I have to know what you are, even if you have forgotten, and even if your actions speak otherwise, and this makes all the difference. I must hold the knowledge of your worth no matter what your outer expression may be.
We are aligning to new possibilities of worth on this earth. It’s called the Paris Agreement. For the first time in all of human history people are coming together with unity of purpose. Never before have all nations, large and small, agreed to one thing. And even more important, the thing we are in agreement about is peace. We are not united in order to keep someone else out. We are not joined in an effort to destroy the one who seeks to destroy us. We are united in peace FOR peace. Do you see what a milestone this is? No matter how many naysayers there are, or will be, we are moving toward something that is bigger than any of us alone – it is the recognition of our oneness on this planet.
We are traveling on a new road. We are at the beginning. It can only be travelled together with recognition of our joint worth. Our consciousness is expanding and we are claiming new possibilities. What has not been valued is being questioned and new values are arising. We are lifting the veil and seeing what is behind it. We are asking, “What are we? Why are we here? How should we live?”
I know who I am. My service lies in knowing who YOU are. We both serve together by remembering for each other. Happy travels to us both.
