What is the Real World?

What is the Real World?

The real world is not what you think, at least not what you think right this moment.

“The real world is a symbol… The real world cannot be perceived except through eyes forgiveness blesses, so they see a world where terror is impossible, and witnesses to fear can not be found… There are no cries of pain and sorrow heard, for nothing there remains outside forgiveness. And the sights are gentle. Only happy sights and sounds can reach the mind that has forgiven itself.” ~ ACIM

The real world is the peace of God, is the renouncing of all dreams – that in reality are nothing but nightmares, illusions, a fog so dense it takes tremendous effort just to get our head above it for an instant and see the light of truth.

The real world is forgiveness, and a home to those forgiven.

The real world is your inheritance and your rightful destiny. You can only discover it by its reflection on your brothers, who are waiting for you there, with open arms and guiding hands. With open hearts and guiding minds.

The real world is never lost, it is always right in front of you. We have lost our sight, but with disciplined practice, it comes back.

The real world can be seen with clear perception free from attachment to ideologies and conditioning.

ACIM Lesson 291

This is a day of stillness and of peace.
