A Course in Miracles

Chapter 27 - The Healing of the Dream

The Healing Example


There is no sadness where a miracle has come to heal. And nothing more than just one instant of your love without attack is necessary, that all this occur. In that one instant are you healed, and in that single instant is all healing done.

What stands apart from you, when you accept the blessing that the holy instant brings?

Be not afraid of blessing, for the One Who blesses you loves all the world, and leaves nothing within the world that could be feared.

But if you shrink from blessing, will the world indeed seem fearful, for you have withheld its peace and comfort, leaving it to die.


Would not a world so bitterly bereft be looked on as a condemnation by the one who could have saved it, but stepped back because he was afraid of being healed?

The eyes of all the dying bring reproach, and suffering whispers,

“What is there to fear?”

Consider well its question. It is asked of you on your behalf.

A dying world asks only that you rest an instant from attack upon yourself, that it be healed.


Come to the holy instant and be healed, for nothing that is there received is left behind, on your returning to the world.

And being blessed, you will bring blessing. Life is given you to give the dying world. And suffering eyes no longer will accuse, but shine in thanks to you who blessing gave.

The holy instant’s radiance will light your eyes, and give them sight to see beyond all suffering, and see Christ’s face instead.

Healing replaces suffering.

Who looks on one cannot perceive the other, for they cannot both be there. And what you see the world will witness, and will witness to.


Thus is your healing everything the world requires, that it may be healed.

It needs one lesson which has perfectly been learned. And then, when you forget it, will the world remind you gently of what you have taught.

No reinforcement will its thanks withhold from you who let yourself be healed that it might live. It will call forth its witnesses to show the face of Christ to you who brought the sight to them, by which they witnessed it.

The world of accusation is replaced by one in which all eyes look lovingly upon the Friend who brought them their release. And happily your brother will perceive the many friends he thought were enemies.
