Coming to True Perception

Q: My question is about a discrepancy between an audio tape about a Course in Miracles and what I have been learning from the Course in Miracles. In my job, occasionally it falls to me to enforce minor laws and morals. It seems the Course in Miracles repeats over and over again that anything that is not eternal is simply not real and if I understand correctly part of a miracle is over looking all errors and allowing the Holy Spirit to fill your mind with more true perception.

In the audio tape it says that when someone commits a crime that would entail the person going to jail, and that they would still go to jail, but the miracle the speaker offers is changing the perception of jails - to seeing them as places of healing and learning.

But I have noticed that it takes hundreds of hours of thinking about someone's crime to enforce even minor offences. And like the course says you give to your self, what ever you think of another person. Which seems correct to me, I find that when I spend time thinking about what other people may have done wrong I do tend to think that other people are projecting negative ideas on to me.

So my question of which is the correct way to perceive might be.

Thanks blessings.

A: Beloved One

Thanks for writing. Forgiveness is always a gift to our Self because it releases the make-believe self/world/cosmos of the ego and opens the way to remembrance of Self and God.

As a brother or sister is recognized beyond the body, their Innocence as a Divine Creation is recognized. You have written that the "miracle is over looking all errors..." and this is so. With the Help of the Holy Spirit it is possible to look beyond error to the Light of the Atonement, Which is forever Innocent and Sinless. Pardon is always justified because the misperceptions of the ego are not real. The Golden Rule asks you to do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

See no body as guilty and you see no body to blame. The Innocence of the Spirit is apparent when one realizes that attack is impossible. A unified mind cannot attack or be attacked. And without the belief in attack guilt has no basis. The Holy Spirit gently leads to a unified mind and a unified perception that is the forgiven world. When forgiveness has been accepted, the illusion of guilt has vanished from awareness.

It is possible to perceive any seeming situation as extending Love or Calling for Love. Let the Holy Spirit show you by aligning your mind with this Guidance. Healing is unlearning the ego and thus releasing every scrap of ego belief, thought, emotion, and perception. If you are willing the way will open, for nothing can obscure the Innocence the Holy Spirit would have you behold.

Blessings to miracle workers everywhere! All Glory to God! Love always.
