Lesson 322: I Sacrifice Illusions: What was Never Real

lesson 322 A Course in Miracles

Lately, I find myself contemplating just what illusion is.  In A Course in Miracles terms it is ego’s version of reality, which is not Reality at all.  “Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”  So all the ideas that my mind conjures to tell me there is something […]

Lesson 321: The Freedom Found in God: Exercise in Listening

lesson 321 ACIM

Today’s ACIM lesson, #321, Father, my freedom is in You alone is hard for ego to accept.  The temper-tantrum prone inner child that proclaims, “I’d rather do it myself” is not keen on relying on powers outside of itself.  Except there’s the rub – the power isn’t outside.  We reside within the mind of God […]

Lesson 314: A Future Different from the Past

Lesson 314 ACIM

Today’s ACIM lesson, #314, I seek a future different from the past, is the place where faith unties us (me) from what I think happened.  No longer am I tethered to the way things have always been.  I am freed to move forward in love that allows fear to fall away into the nothingness that […]

Lesson 309: Looking Within to Embrace Innocence: The Heart of Us All

I will not fear to look within today. ACIM Lesson 309

Today’s ACIM lesson, #309, I will not fear to look within today, is the recognition that we are innocent.  That is a difficult concept for ego to accept, for it can name countless instances that “prove” guilt.  But the Course tells us, “You are not guiltless in time, but in eternity.”  Time is part of […]

Lesson 307: Relinquishing Conflicting Wishes: Surrendering to What Is

Conflicting wishes Lesson 307 ACIM

This is today’s ACIM lesson from last’s writing, #307 Conflicting wishes cannot be my will. It is about surrendering to what is. Naturally, my day reflects this and so I am surrendering to the fact that my life today isn’t unfolding the way I thought it “should.” Oh well. God’s got my back, so all […]

Lesson 298: God is Good: Letting Go of Specialness

ACIM Lesson 298

Today’s ACIM Lesson, #298, I love You, Father, and I love Your Son, calls me into relaxation.  It is the reminder that God is Good and give us everything.  This funny thing happens when you (meaning I) let go of worry and just allow God to handle the details – things unfold in a beautiful […]
