In much romantic love, the picture of our brother that we see is one of contradictions. We both love and hate him, and the two concepts effectively cancel each other out. So we are left with nothing. We do not know whom we see in our brother any more than we know whom we see in ourselves. A Course in Miracles counsels that we will be given a picture to replace what we thought, an image of our brother that we will prefer over all our contradictory images. Even this is not all of him, for it is a perception, and it remains for perception to be translated into knowledge before we will ever see our brother truly. This final step remains in the future for all of us, because it is our translation into Heaven, a step taken at the end of our pathway by God himself.
