Although the 25th was not the real birthdate of Jesus, it would have been sometime in the spring or early summer, yesterday served a great purpose for remembrance. I used to demand that the story be accurate while overlooking the message. Theology instead seeking a EXPEIENCE of LOVE. My Oracle chosen Lesson #269 ACIM workbook sums it up:
My sight goes forth to look upon Christâ€™s face.
I ask Your blessing on my sight today. It is the means which You have chosen to become the way to show me my mistakes, and look beyond them. It is given me to find a new perception through the Guide You gave to me, and through His lessons to surpass perception and return to truth. I ask for the illusion which transcends all those I made. Today I choose to see a world forgiven, in which everyone shows me the face of Christ, and teaches me that what I look upon belongs to me; that nothing is, except Your holy Son.
Today our sight is blessed indeed. We share one vision, as we look upon the face of Him Whose Self is ours. We are one because of Him Who is the Son of God; of Him Who is our own Identity.
And the final five lessons of the Course
This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.
GOD BLESSES CHRIST BLESSES I BLESS
