Ch. 12. VII. 1 – 4. Jesus: “Miracles demonstrate that your learning has occurred under the Right Guidance! For learning itself is invisible and what has been learned can be recognized only by its results. Its generalization is demonstrated as you use it in more and more situations.
When you have applied miracles to all situations, you will understand why we say ‘There is no order of difficulty in miracles!’ There is, in fact, no situation to which miracles do not apply, and by applying them to all situations, the real world will rise in your awareness. For in this perception given unto holiness will you be made whole. And then the Atonement will radiate from your acceptance of it for yourself to everyone the Holy Spirit sends you for your blessing. In every child of God His blessing lies, and in your blessing of the children of God is His blessing to you.
Everyone in the world must play his part in its redemption, in order to recognize that the world has been redeemed. You cannot see the invisible. Yet if you see and feel its effects, you know it must be there. By perceiving what it does for you, you recognize its being. And by experiencing what it does, you learn what it is. You cannot see your real strengths, but you gain confidence in their existence as they enable you to act with loving kindness. And then the results of your actions you can see!
The Holy Spirit is invisible, but you can experience the results of His Presence, and through them you will learn that He is there. What He enables you to do is clearly not of this world, for miracles violate every ‘law of reality’ as this world judges real. Every law of time and space, of magnitude and mass is transcended, for what the Holy Spirit enables you to do is clearly beyond all of them. Perceiving His results, you will understand where He must be, and finally know what He is.
You cannot see the Holy Spirit, but you can see His manifestations. And unless you do, you will not realize He is there. Miracles are His witnesses, and speak for His Presence. What you cannot see becomes real to you only through the witnesses that speak for it. For you can be aware of what you cannot see, and it can become compellingly real to you as its presence becomes manifest through you.
As your function in Heaven is creation, so your function on earth is healing. Do the Holy Spirit’s work, for you share in His function. God shares His function with you in Heaven, and the Holy Spirit shares His with you on earth. As long as you believe you have other functions, so long will you need correction! For such a belief is the destruction of peace, a goal in direct opposition to the Holy Spirit’s purpose.”
