Miracle Principle 27

Principle 27: A miracle is a universal blessing from God through me to all my brothers. It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive. (P-1.I.27)


Child of God, you were created to create the good, the beautiful and the holy. Do not forget this. The Love of God, for a little while, must still be expressed through one body to another, because vision is still so dim. You can use your body best to help you enlarge your perception so you can achieve real vision, of which the physical eye is incapable. Learning to do this is the body’s only true usefulness. (T-1.VII.2:1-5)

The Atonement itself radiates nothing but truth. It therefore epitomizes harmlessness and sheds only blessing. (T-3.I.7:1-2) The miracle dissolves error because the Holy Spirit identifies error as false or unreal. This is the same as saying that by perceiving light, darkness automatically disappears. (T-1.40.1-2)

You can do anything Jesus asks. He has asked you to perform miracles, and has made it clear that miracles are natural, corrective, healing and universal. There is nothing they cannot do, but they cannot be performed in the spirit of doubt or fear. When you are afraid of anything, you are acknowledging its power to hurt you. Remember where your heart is, there is your treasure also.

Innocence is not a partial attribute. It is not real until it is total. The partly innocent are apt to be quite foolish at times. Innocent or true perception means that you never misperceive and always see truly. More simply, it means that you never see what does not exist, and always see what does. (T-3.II.2:1-6)

What can it be but a universal blessing to look on what your Father loves with charity? Extension of forgiveness is the Holy Spirit’s function. Leave this to Him. Let your concern be only that you give to Him that which can be extended. (T-22.VI.9:1-4) Love can be extended . . . ♥

Do not be concerned with darkness; look away from it and toward your brother. Let the darkness be dispelled by Him Who knows the light and lays it gently in each quiet smile of faith and confidence with which you bless your brother. (T-22.VI.9:10-11)

Think, then, how great your own release will be when you are willing to receive correction for all your problems. You will not keep one, for pain in any form you will not want. And you will see each little hurt resolved before the Holy Spirit’s gentle sight. For all of them are little in His sight, and worth no more than just a tiny sigh before they disappear, to be forever undone and unremembered. What seemed once to be a special problem, a mistake without a remedy, or an affliction without a cure, has been transformed into a universal blessing. Sacrifice is gone. And in its place the Love of God can be remembered and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss. (T-26.II.7:1-7)

Remember, the Holy Spirit is the Communication Link between God’s separated Sons. If you will listen to His Voice you will know that you can neither hurt or be hurt, and that many need your blessing to help them hear this for themselves. When you perceive only this need in them, and do not respond to any other, you will have learned of Jesus and will be as eager to share your learning as he is. (T-6.I.19:1-3)

It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive. (T-1.27.2)

The forgiven are the means of the Atonement. Being filled with spirit, they forgive in return. Those who are released must join in releasing their brothers. For this is the plan of the Atonement. Miracles are the way in which minds that serve the Holy Spirit unite with Jesus for the salvation or release of all of God’s creations. (T-1.III.3:1-4)

Forgiveness turns the world of ego into a world of glory, wonderful to see. Each flower shines in light, and every bird sings of the joy of Heaven. There is no sadness and there is no parting here, for everything is totally forgiven. And what has been forgiven must join and perceive they are one, for nothing stands between to keep them separate and apart or to push the other away. They join as one in glad recognition that they are still joined together in happiness. (T-26.IV.2:1-6)

Do not judge today. Receive but what is given you from judgment made beyond the world. Your practicing today becomes your gift of thankfulness for your release from blindness and from misery. All that you see will but increase your joy, because its holiness reflects your own. You bless the world, as you behold it in the light in which your Savior looks on you and offer it the freedom given you through His forgiving vision, not your own. (W-164.7:1-6)

Never believe that you can sacrifice. There is no place for sacrifice in what has any value. If the thought occurs, its very presence proves that error has arisen and correction must be made. Your blessing will correct it. Given first to you, it now is yours to give as well. No form of sacrifice and suffering can long endure before the face of one who has forgiven and has thus blessed himself. (W-187.8:1-5)

Who can be born again in Christ but him who has forgiven everyone he sees or thinks of or imagines? Yet who could be set free while he imprisons anyone? A jailer is not free, for he is bound together with his prisoner. He must be sure that he does not escape, and so he spends his time in keeping watch on him. The bars that limit him become the world in which his jailer lives, along with him. And it is on his freedom that the way to liberty depends for both of them. (W-192.8:1-6)

Therefore, hold no one prisoner. Release instead of bind, for thus are you made free. The way is simple. Every time you feel a stab of anger, realize you hold a sword above your own head. And it will fall or be averted as you choose to be condemned or free. Thus does each one who seems to tempt you to be angry represent your savior from the prison house of death. And so, you owe him thanks instead of pain. (W-192.9:1-7)

Be merciful today. The Son of God deserves your mercy. It is he who asks that you accept the way to freedom now. Do not deny him. His Father’s Love for him belongs to you. Your function here on earth is only to forgive him, that you may accept him back as your Identity. He is as God created him. And you are what he is. Forgive him now, and you will see that you are one with him. You are, your brother is, GOD IS. (W-192.10:1-9)


Father, Christ’s vision is Your gift to me, and it has power to translate all that the body’s eyes behold into the sight of a forgiven world. The world forgiven signifies Your Son acknowledges his Father, lets his dreams be brought to truth, and waits expectantly the one remaining instant more of time which ends forever, as your memory returns to him. AMEN.
