No mistake

God's answer is some form of peace. All pain is healed; all misery replaced with joy. All prison doors are opened. And all sin is understood as merely a mistake. (ACIM Lesson 359) Guiltless. We all make mistakes – that is why we’re here: to make mistakes. To see them rectified, to learn from them. Merely mistakes. It is only when I see the mistake as sin that I suffer. When I see the mistake as natural – my inheritance – it becomes no more than a learning opportunity.

And the concept of sin itself is merely a mistake. Those who choose to believe in it are not wrong, but merely mistaken. The miracle is correction, so love and forgiveness – compassion – is the answer to any perceived sin. It is not my job to tell someone they are wrong – not even to judge them so – it is only my job to let miracles move through me, to give them a space to flow. My job is to get out of the way.

For God’s answer is some form of peace. Listening for it, heeding it, is the path of peace.

Mm, must be the Course in Miracles here.

It does seem as though I make a mistake. (And even that 'mistake' is simply peace/God too.) I keep trying to tell this little personality that it has made a mistake.

Yea, right.
