Be sure to listen below to today’s podcast episode on this lesson (only a couple of minutes long) as I expand on what I have written here. See link below.
The key word in this is “but”. We are so accustomed to saying things like, “I could have peace but…” or happiness, or fill in the blank. We make excuses as to why we cannot have the peace, the happiness or whatever it may be. So here we are practicing “I see myself as…” both positive and negative, then Jesus hits us with the big BUT…..
My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
How could you argue with Jesus on this? Yet we do all the time. “I could forgive but…” and so on. Stop making excuses and accept your mind is part of God’s and in fact you are indeed holy.
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.
