ACIM Workbook lesson 180

The following statements are given for review:

“God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”

(169) “By grace I live. By grace I am released.”

“God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”

(170) “There is no cruelty in God and none in me.”

“God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”

The doorway to grace is forgiveness.

Cruelty is an image you think you see in the world; it is a symbol, a reflection of the gap you have allowed to come between life and your limited sense of self. That distance does not feel right and so that emotion projects onto the world in an image of a disturbance, in this case cruelty. The way to resolve it is not through fighting it in the imagined world, but to address the limited, isolated sense of self that is the reason for it appearing in the first place.

There is no cruelty, not in you, not in anyone, not in creation. The thought of cruelty is a flat thought, a placeholder over a misunderstanding, just like the thoughts of death, despair and doubt.
