W-347: Anger must come from judgment. Judgment is the weapon I would use against myself, to keep the miracle away from me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Atonement is the only weapon my Father offers me to combat fear.  Fear leads to anger and judgment.  Atonement is the Love principle itself, and cuts only one way: all calls for Love are met with Love, and Love is met with Love.  Atonement is the undoing of fear and separation.  Atonement is the paradoxical achievement of what never went away but was simply buried in illusion that Unity could be divided.  Atonement is the miracle that dissolves attachment to our perverse need to judge another, projecting out what we believe about ourselves, to achieve temporary relief.  This belief in judgment never works — how many times have we tried it and still been left unsatisfied?  Atonement judges us as completely loved and lovable, and it is this that I listen to today.

LESSON 347

Anger must come from judgment.  Judgment is
The weapon I would use against myself,
To keep the miracle away from me.

Father, I want what goes against my will, and do not want what is my will to have.  Straighten my mind, my Father.  It is sick.  But You have offered freedom, and I choose to claim Your gift today.  And so I give all judgment to the One You gave to me to judge for me.  He sees what I behold, and yet He knows the truth.  He looks on pain, and yet He understands it is not real, and in His understanding it is healed.  He gives the miracles my dreams would hide from my awareness.  Let Him judge today.  I do not know my will, but He is sure it is Your Own.  And He will speak for me, and call Your miracles to come to me.

Listen today.  Be very still, and hear the gentle Voice for God assuring you that He has judged you as the Son He loves.
