2 lessons a day.
The first part of the day is devoted to one, and the latter part of the day to the second lesson.
One longer exercise period and frequent shorter practices.
Longer Practice Periods
Think about the ideas (both) for the day and the comments that are included.
Devote 3-4 minutes to reading them slowly, several times if possible and then close your eyes and listen.
If you find your mind wandering, repeat the above.
Spend a majority though of the 15 minutes to listening quietly but attentively.
There is a message waiting for you.
Be confident that you will receive it.
Remember that it belongs to you and you want it.
If you have distracting thoughts that appear, remember that they have no meaning or power.
Replace these thoughts with your determination to succeed.
Trust that you will succeed.
Shorter Practice Periods
Reaffirm your determination.
Use the original form of the lessons.
(65) My only function is the one God gave me.
(66) My happiness and my function are one.
Lesson (65) My only function is the one God gave me.
My function releases me from all conflict.
I have one purpose only that tells me what to do, what to say and what to think.
Applying the idea:
My perception of this does not change my function.
This does not give me a function other than the one God gave me.
Let me not use this to justify a function God did not give me.
Lesson (66) My happiness and my function are one.
If I follow my function then very simply, I am happy!
Applying the idea:
This cannot separate my happiness from my function.
The oneness of my happiness and my function remains wholly unaffected by this.
Nothing, including this, can justify the illusion of happiness apart from my function.
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.
