Lesson 290: Present Happiness: More Thoughts on Believing Thoughts

Lesson 290, ACIM

Sometimes I pause for a moment and just notice.  With shocking regularity, what I notice is how I’ve blocked my present happiness.  Instead of enjoying what is right in front of me, I scan the horizon for “what’s wrong.” Today’s ACIM lesson is about correcting that bad habit.  Lesson #290 says, “My present happiness is […]
