From ‘A Course In Miracles’ :
“The veil across the face of Christ, the fear of God and of salvation, and the love of guilt and death, they are all different names for just one error – that there is space between you and your brother, kept apart by an illusion of yourself that holds him off from you, and you away from him .
The sword of judgment is the weapon that you give to the illusion of yourself, that it may fight to keep the space that holds your bother unoccupied by love . Yet while you hold this sword, you must perceive the body as yourself, for you are bound to separation from the sight of him who holds the mirror to another view of what he is, and thus what you must be .
The saviour’s vision is as innocent of what your brother is as it is free of any judgment made upon yourself . It sees no past in anyone at all . And thus it serves a wholly open mind, unclouded by old concepts and prepared to look only on what the present holds . It cannot judge because it does not know .”
