I give the miracles I have received.
For giving and receiving are the dance of joyous living. Will You come join Me?
1 No one can give what he has not received. And who can receive who does not first wish to give to Others? For a closed fist is sure not receptive. Truly comes the joy from giving much more than from receiving. To give a thing requires first you have it in your own possession. This is both obvious and overlooked. Here the laws of Heaven and the world agree. But here they also separate. The world believes that to possess a thing, it must be kept. Salvation teaches otherwise. For away it really must be given. To give is how to recognize you have received. For in sharing does Your gift expand, and keep on expanding, as it goes joyfully from hand to hand. It is the proof that what you have is yours, and always will be.
2 You understand that you are healed when you give healing. For having received the Gift, You naturally do give It. You accept forgiveness as accomplished in yourself when you forgive. Not just in words, but from the heart as well. You recognize your brother as yourself and thus do you perceive that you are whole. For without Your Others God is partial; yet must He be Whole. Why would You hide some of Your Self from You, hate a Part of You? Because You have deliberately forgotten Who You are. There is no miracle you cannot give, for all are given you. So has it always been, and will always be; You have just chosen to forget it. Receive them now by opening the storehouse of your mind where they are laid and giving them away. They are right at hand. Will to receive them; they come from Yourself.
3 Christ’s vision is a miracle. It comes from far beyond itself, for it reflects eternal love and the rebirth of love which never died but has been kept obscure. Deliberately by You, yet God has kept them safely near and extremely dear. Christ’s vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there. For You do Presence all the things of Good. They are Your body, nstead of ‘matter’. The ego mindset cannot wrap itself around that concept. It finds it just incomprehensible. The darkened glass the world presents can show but twisted images in broken parts. The real world pictures Heaven’s innocence, as the Son of God; the Son that You are.
4 Christ’s vision is the miracle in which all miracles are born. It knows a Reality where everything is real and good. Who wouldn’t want that? Only the ego. And since You are not an ego, then You do want miracles. It is their source, – the loving Giver – remaining with each miracle you give and yet remaining yours. God, now, everywhere! It is the bond by which the giver and receiver are united in extension here on earth as they are one in Heaven. You’ve not thought of this before, that each act of giving and receiving is like a partnership or marriage, albeit briefer than most unions (but not all of them!). Christ beholds no sin in anyone, and in His sight the sinless are as one. For He is wedded to Us All in an eternal Union. Their holiness was given by His Father and Himself. He stands for each and every One of Us.
5 Christ’s vision is the bridge between the worlds. Why? Because He can see God’s Reality within the dream. And in its power can you safely trust to carry you from this world into one made holy by forgiveness. How beautiful is that word: forgiveness; the state of being here for giving, in place of for getting. Things which seem quite solid here are merely shadows there, transparent, faintly seen, at times forgot, and never able to obscure the light that shines beyond them. Experience is much less dense there – much more appealing – in that place for giving.Holiness has been restored to vision, and the blind can see. This is a taste of Heaven while still stuck being in the world.
6 This is the Holy Spirit’s single gift— how lovingly It holds Reality for You to embrace; will You now take it? – the treasure house to which you can appeal with perfect certainty for everything that can contribute to your happiness. This is a Love so far beyond all Your imagination. A generosity that shows indeed: that it is the Father’s good pleasure to give You the Kingdom. You are so welcome! All are laid here already. All can be received but for the asking. Here the door is never locked, and no one is denied his least request or his most urgent need. There is no sickness not already healed, no lack unsatisfied, no need unmet within this golden treasury of Christ. Can this be the Truth! Yes! Indeed it is.
7 Here does the world remember what was lost when it was made. Yes, Heaven’s Kingdom. For here it is repaired, made new again but in a different light. One of great gratitude; thankfulness for God’s forgiving Love. What was to be the home of sin becomes the center of redemption and the hearth of mercy where the suffering are healed and welcome. A world born anew, this time out of Love. No one will be turned away from this new home where his salvation waits. For Love is there to welcome every One. No one is stranger to him. No one asks for anything of him except the gift of his acceptance of his welcoming. The Father-Mother’s everlasting Love for You awaits You.
8 Christ’s vision is the holy ground in which the lilies of forgiveness set their roots. Ask for His eyes through which to see Your All Your dear holy Others.This is their home. They can be brought from here back to the world, but they can never grow in its unnourishing and shallow soil. They need the light and warmth and kindly care Christ’s charity provides. Will You now give it? They need the love with which He looks on them. Let this gaze be Yours. And they become His messengers who give as they received.
These gifts of happiness now await You.
9 Take from His storehouse that its treasures may increase. The more He gives, the more there is. This is God’s great Law of Love. His lilies do not leave their home when they are carried back into the world. Their roots remain. They do not leave their source, but carry its beneficence with them and turn the world into a garden like the one they came from and to which they go again with added fragrance. You can be just like these lovely lilies. Now are they twice blessed. Twice blessed as they are. The messages they brought from Christ have been delivered and returned to them. And they return them gladly unto Him. For their hearts – oh, yes, flowers can Love just like You can – are One.
10 Behold the store of miracles set out for you to give. So many need Your Love and forgiveness. Are you not worth the gift when God appointed it be given you? You know You must be, for God so Loves You. Judge not God’s Son, but follow in the way He – the Holy Spirit – has established. Christ has dreamed the dream of a forgiven world. Where God is really seen within the dream. It is His gift whereby a sweet transition can be made from death to life, from hopelessness to hope. So Christ and the Holy Spirit can join You in the dream and walk You out of it. Let us an instant dream with Him. His dream awakens us to truth. His vision gives the means for a return to our unlost and everlasting sanctity in God. Life of the forever Holy Instant.
