The gift of Christ is all I seek today.
“And so, our Father, we return to You, remembering we never went away; remembering Your holy gifts to us. In gratitude and thankfulness we come, with empty hands and open hearts and minds, asking but what You give. We cannot make an offering sufficient for Your Son. But in Your Love the gift of Christ is his” (ACIM Lesson 306 2:1-4).
It is another glorious day in the Neighborhood of Miracles. Today we are guaranteed to “see a world so like Heaven that an ancient memory returns to [us]” (ACIM Lesson 306 1:1). That is a promise that shall be under delivered but rather one that far exceeds our expectations and goes right through to the Heart of our remembrance. In the words of The Doors, we “break on through to the other side,” as we walk hand in hand with our gift of Christ.
Past the doors of perceptions, past the doors of illusion, and past the doors of fear, we go to a place where we find “an island in [Her] arms, country in [Her] eyes” (The Doors): A landscape so miraculously vast that it can only be likened to Heaven. There, we unite with the gift we were born to inherit. One we have never forgotten.
Sometimes this world can seem like a mountain we must climb. However the words of this spiritual text encourages us to experience that we can go through the mountains that we perceive ahead of us. We can go through our fears and illusions, straight to the Heart of Peace. We need not wait. We need not suffer. We can break on through to the other side, right now.
“Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace” (ACIM Lesson 306 1:3).
It is but only a breath away, and truly not even that long. The gift of Christ is given in the holy instant, the holy instant in which we return to remembrance. With empty hands and an open heart, are you ready to break on through to the gift of Christ that awaits you? Namaste.
