For me, the affirmation to repeat, “This idea will help to release me from all that I now believe” stands as a brilliant, flashing marquee today.
Release me…from what I now believe. Where I have focused on the past, I can now experience liberation and incredible freedom. My thoughts are what has kept me embroiled in pain, even if I don’t even believe I am in pain. If I am not at peace, then I am in “pain.”
I hadn’t slept very well as I tossed and turned not feeling well within and without. I was up extra early and meditated. I stayed with this practice as I was aware of the judgment of my mind, the emotions that had arisen, and the seeming illness of my body.
I judge my feelings as good or bad, but they are all meaningless. Yet, I do not have to allow that idea to frighten me. I can know that I am taking steps to my freedom and the recognition of the Truth.
P.S. Listen to my Living the Lessons podcast episode for this lesson as I expanded a little more on what I wrote here.
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.
