Lesson 19 – I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.

Keys to this Lesson

What are we learning with this lesson?
What I see does not affect me alone.
Thinking and its results are simultaneous.
Cause AND effect.
Cause = Thinking
Effect = What you see

Minds are joined.
There are no private thoughts.
Don’t let the idea of no private thoughts scare you though.
You will probably have resistance to the idea.
Yet, as Jesus says, you will understand it later.
Why is this important? It is for your salvation.


Eyes closed.
Repeat idea.
Minute of mind searching for thoughts.
Name the thought using person or theme it contains.
Hold the thought in your mind as you say:

I am not alone in experiencing the effects of this thought about my niece’s new baby.

Every thought is useful for this lesson.
Random in nature.

Jesus states, Lack of order in this connection will ultimately make the recognition of lack of order in miracles meaningful to you.

3 practice periods, no more than 4.
Shorten length if needed.
Use as needed throughout your day.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
