pg 19
Having been restored to your original state, you naturally become part of the Atonement yourself.
*As part of the Atonement you are a maker of Miracles.
You (*now) share MY inability to tolerate the lack of love in yourself & in everyone else, and MUST join the Great Crusade to correct it.
*crusade = synonyms: campaign · fight · do battle · battle · take up arms
*”You know share” should be “You now share”, the “k” has a line thru it in the Urtext.
MY, meaning Christ’s. He sees and acknowledges the hurtful behavior and attitudes. He does not suggest we put on blinders. We are able to “see” when lack of love is being expressed. You may hear it or see it or feel it, depending on if your key sense is audio, visual, or kinesthetic.
The slogan for this Crusade is “Listen, Learn, and Do.”
This means Listen to My Voice, Learn to undo the error, and DO something to correct it.
*Action required. Do was underlined/emphasized in the text.
The first two are not enough. The real members of MY party are active workers.
*”Crusade”, “party”, interesting use of terms. Active underlined, action required. This may only be in one’s thinking forward.
*I suspect the MY is Christ, rather than Jesus. “My voice or the voice of my servants it is one the same.” Jesus’ relationship and connection with the Head of the Matrix is bar none. This is the key concern I have about how the course has been taught because it makes a difference.
The power to work Miracles belongs to you.
*Pronouns. Personal power. Belongs is underlined in the URTEXT meaning. please realize this is your heritage.
I will create the right opportunities for you to do them.
*Is this Jesus or Christ (the Whole)? This week I had to wonder if it is Jesus, our brother, who started this whole thing. I get the idea that he is our blueprint maker and coordinator of the play or dance that we are each a part of here on earth. Jesus’ influence cannot be ignored.
But you must be ready & willing to do them, since you are already able to.
*Choice and accountability. Not accountability for punishment, rather the willingness to act. And a great deal of that does take place in one’s thoughts.
Doing them will bring conviction in the ability.
*synonyms of conviction: certainty · certitude · assurance · confidence · sureness
I repeat that you will see Miracles thru your hands thru MINE.
*My heart really wants to know if this is Christ or Jesus. If it is Jesus, it may be because he is the Head, because he is the First born, and the organizer/CEO of the plan of the Atonement, the beginning and the end. If it is Christ, that would bring us to the altar within each of us (Jesus included) where we recognize The Son within ourselves, as our Higher Self.
*Note that these comments were not carried into ACIM publications being considered too personal. Perhaps confusing to people or perhaps reflective of the biases that Helen had from the society around her.
*I would not take “MINE” to mean Jesus’ physical hands, nor “thru your hands” to mean your physical hands. It is the mental, emotional, “of the mind” process that brings Miracles about. Just as the eyes you will “see” with are your heart or mind’s eye.
*I am not suggesting that love and service cannot be expressed through the hands, as long as we are able and physical, this is something that we can do. And service takes many forms. All of us can offer up a heart full of forgiveness and thanks. Here we are speaking of the place where the Miracle starts.
Conviction really comes thru accomplishment.
*Conviction; synonyms: certainty · certitude · assurance · confidence · sureness
Remember that ability is the potential, Achievement is its expression, and Atonement is the Purpose.
*This reminds me of the three-part Godhead. Father/ability/potential,
and Spirit/Atonement/Purpose.
Seeming separate, actually the same.
WE are each a part of this marvelous Entity.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
(* Remember I claim no special gifts, they are just my thoughts after a lifetime of trying to understand the will of God, as Jesus taught it, and share it with others from my place of understanding. My comments are as follows: (*…) With the text being in bold print. Crossed out words and phrases from the Urtext did not copy here, so they are made mention to in my comments, if they appear in the transcript. Please bring the Spirit with you to the reading.)
