“All things are lessons God would have me learn.” This ACIM review lesson from last year seems perfect for the day (as always!). Here is the reminder to choose the thoughts of God over thoughts I made (because ego’s aren’t always very loving!).

thoughts I made

5 second rule

“All things are lessons God would have me learn.”  I don’t know what anything is for so why in the world would I think that my ideas should be in charge of the lesson plan?  It is a much better idea to embrace the lesson God “offers to me, in place of thoughts I made that hurt me.” I’m feeling plenty of resistance today – back to old patterns and putting myself in hell.  I seem to be believing my thoughts again.  I don’t know why.  Oh yeah, “why?” is an ego question: a hook to suck me back in.

It helps to remember that thoughts are like viruses floating through the air.  Just because I noticed one doesn’t mean I have to make it mine.

Okay, so here is today’s review lesson:

Lesson 213

I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.

(193) All things are lessons God would have me learn.

A lesson is a miracle which God offers to me, in place of 
thoughts I made that hurt me. What I learn of Him becomes
the way I am set free. And so I choose to learn His lessons
and forget my own.

I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.

Sometimes the only answer there is is “do it anyway.”  It is the recognition that when ego is in charge there is never going to be a moment when I feel like doing what I “should” be doing.  That includes writing.  Some days, I don’t want to write.  I don’t want to listen to the Holy Spirit, or I don’t want, I don’t want.  Whatever.

I return to Mel Robbins 5-second rule which says, “If you have an impulse to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill the idea.” Today, I have work to do and it is getting in the way of my writing (it happens some days).

I suppose my life is screaming exactly the point of the lesson.  God’s lessons are not painful, but since I feel like I am in pain (resistance) then clearly I have some centering work to do to get back to the Love that surrounds me always.

Sigh.

It is what it is.

Namaste, my friends, Namaste.
