Lesson 73 I will there be light.

Keys to this Lesson

Today we learn more of the will we share with God.
This is not the same as what the ego wills.
The will you share with God has all the power of creation in it.
The ego cannot and does not care to share.
This is what we have believed and now we learn something different.

We learn that we have no need for grievances or righteous judgment against anyone or anything.
The ego only uses other people and situations to keep us away from God and knowing Who we are and what our purpose is.
Don’t listen to the ego today.

Today’s lesson will help us to reach into past the world as we know it and into the light.
The light is there.
It is seen when we withdraw our belief from the ego and all it tells us.

What we see outside of us is what is there in our mind. It is a mirror.
If grievances are in our mind, then we will look out on a darkened world, a depressing world, an unforgiving world.
Forgiveness lifts the darkness and we see only light.

Today we ask ourselves:
Do I want to be in hell?
Do I really want to continue to suffer?

Let go of the ego today and see that in God is where we can be happy and at peace.
We will succeed today if we remember that we want salvation.
We want to accept God’s plan.
We want the freedom to do so.
Our will is free. We have the choice.

So today we practice with confidence and trust.


2 longer practice periods.
Begin with recognizing that God’s plan for salvation is in accord with your will.
It is not pushed upon you as it is your purpose.
Jesus assures us that we will succeed today.
We will be released from hell.

Keep your will clearly in mind and tell yourself with gentle firmness and quiet certainty:
I will there be light. Let me behold the light that reflects God’s Will and mine.

Let your will joined with God step forward.
Put the rest of the practice period in His Guidance.

Shorter practice periods.
Repeat this several times an hour:
I will there be light. Darkness is not my will.

If you are tempted to hold a grievance throughout the day, any kind of grievance or judgment, say the same.
I will there be light. Darkness is not my will.

By doing so it will help you to let go of your grievances and judgments.


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.
