I am holy. We are all holy. We are sinless. To focus on the past mistakes and that which I feel guilty, even slightly guilty, is not seeing what God sees. I have reminded myself numerous times already this morning as I thought about the freezing rain possibly canceling tonight and tomorrow night’s classes at my studio and the implications; the workload ahead of me today; the happiness I felt from last night’s meditation class and the enthusiasm from the students; the mind healing on a lost past issue that took place just before falling to sleep last night; the current state of affairs in this country, and so on do the thoughts go. This includes as this lesson states all that is in front of me, the computer, the coffee cup, etc.
When I extend my holiness to all, i.e. people, places and things, all is surrounded by the Light and Love of God. All opinions and judgments melt away. It brings serenity to my mind in knowing this.
We have to practice this first as written by seeing that all that we see “my holiness” is enveloping it. I also surrounded my thoughts, my judgments and all as I stated above with the same. We can’t fool ourselves that we do not have these thoughts, because we do, they creep in so slightly that we seem to not notice. But my friends, they are there. They will occur. Just because we are studying this Course does not mean that the ego stops speaking. Ken Wapnick told us as such. The ego and Holy Spirit vie for our attention. We bend our ear more frequently, we hope with our practice, to the Holy Spirit’s Voice.
No excuses once again today, your holiness envelops every single thing.

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.
