Lesson 304: Perception is a Mirror, NOT a Fact

Perception is a Mirror, ACIM

Today’s ACIM lesson was written last year on Election Day (Nov. 8th, 2016) not on Halloween.  Both days are perfect for today’s Lesson 304 Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.   This is a teaching about learning to see past perception to reality.  I’m not a huge Halloween fan, probably because I grew […]

Lesson 300: All that Matters – Only the Love is Real

lesson 300, ACIM

Today’s ACIM lesson, #300, Only an instant does this world endure, is about distinguishing between the eternal and the ephemeral, truth and illusion, love and fear.  Only the love matters because only the love is real.

Lesson 281: Evil Requires a Host: I Can Be Hurt by Nothing but My Thoughts

Nothing but My Thoughts

Today’s ACIM lesson, #281, I can be hurt by nothing by my thoughts, is the first lesson in the “What is the Holy Spirit” section of the workbook.  It’s important stuff to understand because as humans, we are frequently hijacked by our thoughts and it helps to know that God gave up a helper to […]
