II. SECTION 13. What is a Miracle?
Lesson 350 Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love. To offer them is to remember Him, and through His memory to save the world.
- What we forgive becomes a part of us, as we perceive ourselves. The Son of God incorporates all things within himself as You created him. Your memory depends on his forgiveness. What he is, is unaffected by his thoughts. But what he looks upon is their direct results. Therefore, my Father, I would turn to You. Only Your memory will set me free. And only my forgiveness teaches me to let Your memory return to me and give it to the world in thankfulness.
- And as we gather miracles from Him, we will indeed be grateful. For as we remember Him, His Son will be restored to us in the reality of Love.
Today’s lesson reminds us nothing can change our truth as Sons of God. We can say that God is dead, God never was; God has forgotten us. We can say we created ourselves, that we are bodies and not spirits, that we are better off on our own, and that Jesus is a mere historical figure that madly asserted our Sonship of God. We can choose to scoff at the resurrection. We may choose to seek our bliss in the pleasures of the flesh and our purpose in achievements of the temporal world.
However, truth is truth. We are Sons of God, and that will never change – the only thing that will seem to change is how we see ourselves and the world in which we live. What we see and experience here in the body and in ego world is a direct result of the thoughts and imaginings that we hold about it. This is where our God-born creative powers are put to the use of the ego, turning Creation against itself in a warped illusion of godless strife and separateness.
The memory of God that will free us from the nightmare we have authored. It is only our forgiveness extended without reserve throughout the nothingness of time that teaches us the memory of God. In recognition and forgiveness, our darkened, frightened minds are transformed by the certainty of God and His love for us. When we offer miracles, we are offering God’s eternal Love. Because we have remembered Him, we have remembered ourselves. And it is through remembering God that the world is saved.
As we remember God, the Sonship is restored to us in the reality of Love. We are no longer alone, separate, afraid, and doomed. Our troubled minds are a thing of the past. Our thoughts are now filled with peace and joy. We become a spiritual haven for one another, offering quietness, brotherhood, and the certainty of God. Our existential angst is put to rest; our eternal bliss is awakened. Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love, indeed!
