In this lesson, Jesus tells me that I have no personal interests. At first, this sounds both absurd and insulting. Of course, I have personal interests, don’t I? Even though the quotation below comes before this assertion, I think it explains what he is getting at. I am not a separate being, self-sufficient and alone. I am part of God’s one creation, what the Course calls the Sonship. What I think and how I perceive affects everyone, even those I will never meet, and so my true interests are connected with the rest of creation.
“You perceive the world and everything in it as meaningful in terms of ego goals. These goals have nothing to do with your own best interests, because the ego is not you.”
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.
