Lesson 315 All gifts my brothers give belong to me.

Lesson 315

All gifts my brothers give belong to me.

Each day a thousand treasures come to me with every passing moment. I am blessed with gifts throughout the day, in value far beyond all things of which I can conceive. A brother smiles upon another, and my heart is gladdened. Someone speaks a word of gratitude or mercy, and my mind receives this gift and takes it as its own. And everyone who finds the way to God becomes my savior, pointing out the way to me, and giving me his certainty that what he learned is surely mine as well.

I thank You, Father, for the many gifts that come to me today and every day from every Son of God. My brothers are unlimited in all their gifts to me. Now may I offer them my thankfulness, that gratitude to them may lead me on to my Creator and His memory.

Lesson 315
"All gifts my brothers give belong to me."

It is gratifying to know that we are constantly being blessed by every thought of Love anyone offers to anyone. Love is one and Love unites us all. In that unity Love's gifts are given equally to all. Love can make no exceptions and be Itself. Love is forever extending, because that is what Love does and is. Every forgiving thought opens the door to Love's extension and Its blessing is received by all.

I give today to the Holy Spirit to guide my thoughts. With His strength I will let go of the past and in this forgiveness, clear the way for Love's extension to bless my brothers and myself. The gift of forgiveness brings me joy. My heart is filled with gratitude, for through forgiveness I recognize my Self in all my brothers. Thus I recognize all gifts my brothers give belong to me.


Love, to be Love, is all inclusive. Love extends to all of Itself in the eternal now. Everyone's true nature is Love and that true nature is always extending all of Itself to all Love. Therefore we are always receiving Love's gifts. It is always occurring, whether we are aware of it or not.

Today I open my mind to become aware of Love's ongoing gifts. Today I accept the truth of Love, which is present now and eternally. I let the Holy Spirit help me recognize my barriers to Love. I then allow the Holy Spirit to shine those barriers away. I would recognize the truth today. I would recognize that the truth of Love is true and nothing else is true.

I am grateful for the constant gift of Love that comes to me today and every day from every Son of God. I am also grateful for the constant gift of Love that extends from me today to every Son of God. For Love to be Love, It must extend to all always, in the eternal now. I practice accepting Love's eternal presence today.


I was saying in my ACIM discussion group just last Sunday that we are all one mind and so when one of us is healed that healing is for all of us. But I don't think that I really felt what that means.

I'm thinking that, as I sit here this morning, I am receiving a constant stream of spiritual gifts. How extraordinarily wonderful this is! I am awe struck just to think of it. When you realize this is true, it suddenly becomes possible (no, certain) that the Sons of God will return to who they are.

I am grateful for this encouraging thought because, surely, I have sometimes doubted it could be done as I looked around at what the ego has appeared to have made. Every time I look at a brother, today, I am going to be reminded he is my savior and feel gratitude for what he is doing for me.
