“Be grateful to your brother,” does not mean be grateful to their body or their personality self. It means be grateful to the seeming separated mind that is your brother, not their body that seemingly encases it or the personality self the mind thinks it is. Both the body and the personality self we made up to witness to the separation. It means be grateful to the mind that is still sleeping and dreaming it is separate. Be grateful to that mind, like yours, that must be returned to God.

One of the greatest gifts you can give your brother is to think as you engage with them, “You are not that body and that personality self. I am not this body and this personality self. Those are hallucinations. We are not alone. We are not guilty, unworthy of love and deserving of punishment. We are invulnerable, all powerful, one self united with our Source. We are the supernatural sinless Son of God Himself. He loves us now, always and forever.” As you smile and sing that song of freedom to their sleeping mind, know that you have performed an act of true kindness, an act of true forgiveness.

The mind we share is shared by all our brothers, and as we see them truly they will be healed. Let your mind shine with mine upon their minds, and by our gratitude to them make them aware of the light in them. This light will shine back upon you and on the whole Sonship, because this is your proper gift to God. (T-7.V.11:2-4)
