In this Review Lesson, Lessons 6 and 8 are resonating with me the most today. Lesson 6 is “I am upset because I see what is not there.” and Lesson 8 “My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.”

The past is an apparition that stands in my way. But it has no substance at all. It was literally dreamed up in my mind.

The answer: Be present. Be IN the present.

A wooden block sign I have in my home office says, “Don’t believe everything you think.” That goes for the past.

Why let the past haunt me at all? It’s just to cause myself misery. This includes something that happened five minutes ago, five hours ago, five days ago or five years ago.

What’s with the ghost references today? LOL…I guess the only ghost I need is the Holy Ghost!

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.
