第2章V節10:慈悲の表現として奇跡は苦痛の時間を短縮する

Charity is a way of looking at another as if he had already gone far beyond his actual accomplishments in time.

Since his own thinking is faulty he cannot see the Atonement for himself, or he would have no need of charity.

The charity that is accorded him is both an acknowledgment that he needs help, and a recognition that he will accept it.

Both of these perceptions clearly imply their dependence on time, making it apparent that charity still lies within the limitations of this world.

I said before that only revelation transcends time.

The miracle, as an expression of charity, can only shorten it.

It must be understood, however, that whenever you offer a miracle to another, you are shortening the suffering of both of you.

This corrects retroactively as well as progressively.

前段落に続いて”charity”の定義がされています。

Charity is a way of looking at another as if he had already gone far beyond his actual accomplishment in time.

慈悲は、やがてそうなるように、あたかも相手がすでに実際の達成をはるかに越えたと見る方法だということですね。そして…

The charity is both an acknowledgement that he needs help, and a recognition that he will accept it.

彼に助けが必要だという認識と、彼が助けを受け入れるとの確信、この二つを合わせて慈悲であるとしています。

つまり、”charity”は、相手に助けが必要だと認める(現在、誤りがある)のですが、やがてそれが修正されるという見方なのですね。現在、現れている誤りで相手を決めてしまわない。やがて現れる本来の完全さを見るのです。

この見方を他者に施すことが奇跡を施すことになります。そうするとき、奇跡を施す者とそれを受け取る者の両方にとって、苦痛の時間が短縮されます。さらに、時間の進む方向(未来)にも、時間を遡る方向(過去)にも修正が為されるのです。
