This lesson can seem hard given our state of affairs in this world in 2019. The fear mongers press on about a fearful and dangerous world and still further in how crazy this world seems.
Those who see hope still think it can be a good world or a world of hope. But if I follow this lesson, either or, is still placing meaning upon the world. The focus on this implies that there is a negative world.
I give the meaning to the world. My upset comes from the meaning I hold to it. It is not all about the negative aspects in the world but the positive ones as well. Jesus tells us in this lesson that we may not understand why the positive responses are appropriate, yet because of the duality that we still seem to believe, it is where we are.
In all, it is all meaningless. Don’t let that idea frighten you. The ego wants to defend itself vehemently with the purpose of keeping us further away from God. When we allow the truth in, this will bring us the happiness and peace we have sought for so long.
We write the script and up until now we have wrote it the way we desire to see it and not how it truly is. Underneath these illusions is the truth of the Word of God. When we stop our projections, we will know His Word.
P.S. Listen to my Living the Lessons podcast episode for this lesson as I expanded a little more on what I wrote here. See link below.

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.
