28. Miracles honor man, BECAUSE he is loveable.
*Take that in for a minute. Humanity is loveable. That means you.
They dispel illusions about himself and perceive the light in him.
*You are not the unworthy, nasty you sometimes think you are.
They thus atone for his errors by freeing him from his own nightmares.
*synonyms for atone:
make amends · make reparation · make restitution · make recompense · make redress · make up for · compensate · pay · pay the penalty · pay the price · recompense ·
They release him from a prison in which he has imprisoned himself.
*This is what teachers of the Bible have missed because of authoritarian views.
By freeing his mind from illusions, they restore his sanity, and place him at the feet of Jesus.
*I suspect that Jesus is still speaking to them from where they are with their view of him in the context of the Bible as noted in the next comment.
(Biblical quotation re healing of devil possessed man, in which the sufferer was subsequently found healed in his right mind, and sitting at feet of Jesus. HS note.)
*Healed because he remembered and received recognition of his worthiness of love, through the Miracle.
(Tell B. man’s mind can be possessed by illusions, but his Spirit is eternally free. If a mind creates without love, it can create an empty shell. This CAN be possessed by evil. But the Atonement restores the Soul to its proper place. Unless there is emptiness there is no danger, and emptiness is a false creation. The mind that serves the Spirit is invulnerable.)
*Emptiness. I wonder if some of the suicides that happen, especially among our young, are caused by emptiness, which may bring about a loss of hope. Note that listening to the Spirit allows the mind to be invulnerable. I believe we may still feel sorrow at the illusion, but hope is never in question because of the witness of the truth and there is its strength.
29. The miracle restores the Soul to its fullness.
*Making it whole and united with God and all creation.
By atoning for lack, it establishes perfect protection.
*In other words, correcting the belief that humanity had separated from God and the sense of scarcity and vulnerability that brings was corrected.
The strength of the Soul leaves no room for intrusions.
*Identification of the meaning of Soul is important here. The Soul is the mind that is aware of its connection with God and all of creation.
The forgiven are filled with the Soul, and their Soul forgives in return.
*Just breath that in and out for a minute. Doesn’t it just feel good! The witness of the unity and oneness of all creation! That is a witness from the Holy Spirit.
It is the duty of the released to release their brothers.
*i. e. forgiven and released are used interchangeably here
The forgiven ARE the means of Atonement.
*The means are the same as the “way”, so the forgiven (those who receive that witness of the truth) are the means or way to Atonement. “I am the Way, Truth. and Light” may be thought of as the Whole of Christ Consciousness or creation rather than an individual.
Those released by Christ must join in releasing their brothers, for this is the plan of Atonement.)
*Christ, being the whole consciousness aware of itself.
On this Memorial Day Weekend I posted online:
Those released by Christ must join in releasing their brothers, for this is the plan of Atonement. Urtext ACIM pg. 22
*Christ, being the whole consciousness of creation aware of itself.
Even while we remember those who have fallen as they fought for freedom and those who have gone before who made it so our lives could be better or “be”; let us remember that all of us who survive are given the privilege to forgive ourselves and one another and recognize the great love by which we were created and which we are forever worthy of. In the name of Christ, Amen.
May this serve.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
