W-344: Today I learn the law of love; that what I give my brother is my gift to me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

A dream is a mirage, something that disappears as I approach it … an illusion that I put my hand through … dreams seem real to me now, but not as real as they once did.  Today I learn the law of love — that what I give my brother is my gift to me.  I already have learned this and do live by it and yet there is more to assimilate and digest.  God’s formless food is the gift of Love which nourishes me and returns Our Oneness to my sleeping mind.

LESSON 344

Today I learn the law of love; that what
I give my brother is my gift to me.

This is Your law, my Father, not my own.  I have not understood what giving means, and thought to save what I desired for myself alone.  And as I looked upon the treasure that I thought I had, I found an empty place where nothing ever was or is or will be.  Who can share a dream?  And what can an illusion offer me?  Yet he whom I forgive will give me gifts beyond the worth of anything on earth.  Let my forgiven brothers fill my store with Heaven’s treasures, which alone are real.  Thus is the law of love fulfilled.  And thus Your Son arises and returns to You.

How near we are to one another, as we go to God.  How near is He to us.  How close the ending of the dream of sin, and the redemption of the Son of God.
