Unexpected occurrences do not have to keep me from remembering that God is the light in which I see. It is mind training Jesus is accomplishing with us. I can ask myself, “Do I want to train my mind?” or “Do I like the way my mind is now?” Excellent questions for self-reflection.

Obviously for me personally, I have been training my mind for a long time, for several decades through meditation and of course, ACIM. When I came to ACIM back then, to me it was a sign of self-love. Interestingly enough, I bought the book on Valentine’s Day. For too long I had chosen not to love myself nor to see myself with the light of God. That moment I picked up the book was the moment I began to see the spark of light within.

Light is synonymous with truth and with love. Don’t be concerned if you do not see a physical light, perhaps you experience it differently. If you find the sense of relaxation and the feeling of approaching God as Jesus indicates here, then you are indeed practicing it correctly. If not, don’t judge yourself, love yourself even more. Every lesson is to help us to remember the truth that we are loved by God. He does not care of our forgetfulness or mistakes, only the ego keeps score.

Relax and allow it to occur. Do not force it. If it seems nothing occurs, just remember “God is the light in which I see.”

I’ve been there and I’ve been here. I still have to remember truth. We do it for each and everyone.

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.
