This second book on kindness centers on two statements of caution Jesus offers in A Course in Miracles. Characteristic of his gentle guidance, he tells us not to be disturbed by the shadows surrounding our “little willingness” to learn from him, and not to despair because of our limitations. These cautions were the themes of two workshops presented at our center—"Shadows of Limitation" and "Sweet Are the Uses of Adversity"—that form the basis of this book. If we identify with the ego, our limitations become cause for comparison and judgment, and thereby impel us to seek ways to overcome the imperfections in our bodies and the world. This focus serves the ego's purpose of concealing the mind's decision for guilt, substituting a limited self for the unlimited Self of Christ. Identifying with the loving Presence of the Holy Spirit in our right minds, we recognize our self-defeating choice, thus allowing true correction to heal. We now look kindly on our imperfections, redefining them not as our reality but as mere detours on our journey home. These shadows of limitation become the contours of the classroom that Jesus uses to teach us his kind lessons of forgiveness. Thus do they ultimately fade in the light of the Atonement, in which we all are joined as the one perfect Son of God.

"Kindness created me kind."
