Sometimes the sentences that are most helpful to me are those that cause me to think: Really? Are you kidding? Such a sentence is this one: There is such a temptation to dismiss fear thoughts as unimportant, trivial and not worth bothering about that it is essential you recognize them all as equally destructive, but equally unreal.
Every thought is either fearful or loving. I can tell this because, as Jesus points out, they either bring peace or war–make me feel calm or anxious. I think that a thought like: I wonder what I’ll eat for breakfast–may seem innocuous, but if I follow that thought, it can lead to anxiety about hunger or gratitude for being fed. Ridiculous? I used to think so, but I don’t anymore.
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.
