Love with a brother’s love
Love your brother with a brother’s love – it takes a course in miracles to realize the truth that your brother, your neighbour, is your self. And your relationship with him is directly related to your relationship with God. Miracles open the heart and mind to the love you have for mankind; everyone you meet and everyone you know, for they are all the Sons of one Father and our brothers in love.
- “…for you have come with but one purpose; that you learn you love your brother with a brother’s love. And as a brother, must his Father be the same as yours, as he is like yourself in truth. “ T – 31.II.10.5
- “In your relationship with your brother, where He [Holy Sprit] has taken charge of everything at your request, He has set the course inward to the truth you share… Within yourself you love your brother with a perfect love. Here is holy ground, in which no substitution can enter, and where only the truth in your brother can abide. Here you are joined in God, as much together as you are with Him. The original error has not entered here, nor ever will. Here is the radiant truth, to which the Holy Spirit has committed your relationship. Let Him bring it here, where you would have it be. Give Him but a little faith in your brother, to help Him show you that no substitute you made for Heaven can keep you from it.” T – 18.I.9
- “It is no dream to love your brother as yourself. Nor is your holy relationship a dream. All that remains of dreams within it is that it is still a special relationship. Yet it is very useful to the Holy Spirit, Who has a special function here. It will become the happy dream through which He can spread joy to thousands on thousands who believe that love is fear, not happiness. “
T – 18.V.5
