A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson 332
Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.
W-pII.332.1. The ego makes illusions. 2 Truth undoes its evil dreams by shining them away. 3 Truth never makes attack. 4 It merely is. 5 And by its presence is the mind recalled from fantasies, awaking to the real. 6 Forgiveness bids this presence enter in, and take its rightful place within the mind. 7 Without forgiveness is the mind in chains, believing in its own futility. 8 Yet with forgiveness does the light shine through the dream of darkness, offering it hope, and giving it the means to realize the freedom that is its inheritance.
W-pII.332.2. We would not bind the world again today. 2 Fear holds it prisoner. 3 And yet Your Love has given us the means to set it free. 4 Father, we would release it now. 5 For as we offer freedom, it is given us. 6 And we would not remain as prisoners, while You are holding freedom out to us.
