Thoughts on Week 29, Chapter 16, VI. The Bridge to the Real World

Love is freedom.

Love is freedom. In the special relationship, guilt is the glue binds us. We are lured in by that guilt. Then, Jesus says to use that the body is what gives meaning to the special relationship. It is a device of the world of form. We look to form to solve our problems. I must pursue this body to make me whole.

And so we come to the bridge where we leave the body and bodies behind. The spark of Who we are is within us. It is us. It is the beacon guiding us across the bridge to Heaven.

The little spark that holds the Great Rays within it is also visible, and this spark cannot be limited long to littleness.

Once we cross the bridge, we no longer see the value we have placed in the body and the world of form. We’ve walked away from the ice cold imprisonment. Yet we do not do this alone, we must bring our brothers with us.

We are given a prayer to assist us in doing so:

The Holy Spirit asks only this little help of you: Whenever your thoughts wander to a special relationship which still attracts you, enter with Him into a holy instant, and there let Him release you. He needs only your willingness to share His perspective to give it to you completely. And your willingness need not be complete because His is perfect. It is His task to atone for your unwillingness by His perfect faith, and it is His faith you share with Him there. Out of your recognition of your unwillingness for your release, His perfect willingness is given you. Call upon Him, for Heaven is at His Call. And let Him call on Heaven for you.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
