Accepting the Atonement for oneself

Accepting the healing of your own thinking, accepting right-mindedness into your mind (even if only briefly), which leads directly and automatically to extending healing to others. Accepting healing is the precondition for extending healing, for you must have before you can give. This acceptance is the sole responsibility of the miracle worker, because once Atonement is allowed into your mind, it will automatically extend through you and give miracles to others (unless you block it). Thus, rather than implying that others are of no concern to you, this idea tells you how you can be truly helpful to them. You can accept Atonement by changing your perception of self or others, as well as by joining with your holy relationship partner. (See T-22.VI.4:4-5:3. See T-2.V.5:1, M-7.3:2-6).
