W-63: The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

If salvation is accepted, salvation is given.  What seems like many minds boils down to one ego thought appearing in countless shapes and forms.  God’s Son is the One Self.  Salvation saves the One Self, which is Itself, from continuing delusional belief in an illusory idea that there could be an identity other than God, by unraveling that idea and discovering it has no Source.

The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.  This “my” becomes completely impersonal as the importance of Lesson 63 is embraced.  In accepting Light, darkness is dissolved, and happiness blossoms effortlessly.  Forgiveness lays all concepts at the feet of Truth.  Having given self-concept to  Self, there is nothing but uncluttered space and loving laughter.  Life is a bowl of cherries!

LESSON 63

The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

How holy are you who have the power to bring peace to every mind!  How blessed are you who can learn to recognize the means for letting this be done through you!  What purpose could you have that would bring you greater happiness?

You are indeed the light of the world with such a function.  The Son of God looks to you for his redemption.  It is yours to give him, for it belongs to you.  Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your function and leave the Son of God in hell.  This is no idle request that is being asked of you.  You are being asked to accept salvation that it may be yours to give.

Recognizing the importance of this function, we will be happy to remember it very often today.  We will begin the day by acknowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness.  And throughout the day we will repeat this as often as we can:

The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.   I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.

If you close your eyes, you will probably find it easier to let the related thoughts come to you in the minute or two that you should devote to considering this.  Do not, however, wait for such an opportunity.  No chance should be lost for reinforcing today’s idea.  Remember that God’s Son looks to you for his salvation.  And Who but your Self must be His Son?
