Workbook PART II
What Is A Miracle?
1 A miracle is a correction. It does not create nor really change at all. For Reality is but perfection. Crucial this is, to understand, and to Your understanding.
Miracles do what? Please pay attention: It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. If it isn’t good, then it isn’t real. On this basis stands all correction.
It undoes error, – standing for the Truth – but does not attempt to go beyond perception nor exceed the function of forgiveness. The miracle keeps it short and sweet, and very obvious. Yet does it stay within the realm of dreams. Thus it stays within time’s limits. Which keeps it recognizable to You. Yet it paves the way for the return of timelessness and love’s awakening, for fear must slip away under the gentle remedy it gives. Sweet taste of Heaven, it makes You want more.
2 A miracle contains the gift of grace, – This gift of grace it has no strings at all, freely received, it was freely given. – for it is given and received as one. And thus it illustrates the law of truth the world does not obey because it fails entirely to understand its ways. In the world of dreams, all gifts come with a price that must be paid. A miracle inverts perception which was upside-down before, and thus it ends the strange distortions that were manifest. Some sense of Love’s Reality is both given and received. Now is perception open to the truth. Now is forgiveness seen as justified. The Love that stands behind forgiveness begins to dissolve the ego’s iron grasp And now may You slip away to freedom. Willingness to really Love, shown by forgiveness, opens wide the door to Heaven.
3 Forgiveness is the home of miracles. It’s a willingness to see Your Brothers through the eyes of Love. They are My eyes that I wish to gift You, for they are open to all Good.
The eyes of Christ deliver them to all they look upon in mercy and in love. This Love of which I speak is but gifted universally, never partially. It is not like the world’s idea of ‘Love’.
Perception stands corrected in His sight, and what was meant to curse has come to bless. What is perception but a view that is limited and quite skewed by the ego. Each lily of forgiveness offers all the world the silent miracle of love. A resurrection of the Son of God whose Name is but Love, just as His Father’s.
And each is laid before the Word of God upon the universal altar to Creator and creation, in the light of perfect purity and endless joy. How precious is Your willingness to Love instead of hate, to give instead of take.
4 The miracle is taken first on faith because to ask for it implies the mind has been made ready to conceive of what it cannot see and does not understand. And in this step the Son of God acknowledges that there is another Power. He gives God His Gift of humility. With this Gift He denies the ego, replacing it with God. This willingness is beyond momentous. It is the first death knell for the ego. So starts the resurrection of the Son.
Yet faith will bring its witnesses to show that what it rested on is really there. Not only there, but quite dependable. And thus the miracle will justify your faith in it and show it rested on a world more real than what you saw before-a world redeemed from what you thought you saw. That first glimpse of Heaven brings only joy, characteristic of all Gifts from God.
5 Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures came to die. For all dreams must end, starved and shriveled by their godless nature.
Now they have water. Now the world is green. And everywhere the signs of life spring up to show that what is born can never die, for what has life has immortality. For “flower and fruitage now are seen where blight and mildew ested.” Thus right there Heaven does unfold, seen, lush and resurrected.
Now sweeping down the years untold,
The day of truth is breaking;
And sweet and fair the leaves unfold,
Of love’s immortal waking.
For flower and fruitage now are seen,
Where blight and mildew rested:
The Christ today to us has been
By word and deed attested.
His living presence we have felt,
The Word made flesh among us:
And hearts of stone before Him melt,
His peace is brooding o’er us.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
