It means that nothing outside yourself can save you; nothing outside yourself can give you peace. 

This is not to be taken lightly. It is true. It is a fact. Can you accept it now? You’ve searched long enough to find peace and salvation through the world –education, money, material possessions, relationships, ideologies, righteousness and judgment. Now let it go. Let go and relax into God. I think here of the trust exercises in a group atmosphere where a person is to trust and fall backwards into the arms of their co-workers. Fall back into the Arms of God. That is where we find peace.

As I practice this throughout the day, I will breeze past the clouds. I know I will not find any hope of the light in them. The judgments and grievances indeed cloud my vision. I appreciated Jesus saying to think of him extending his hand and leading me through. He does so as I imagined it and I know he will always lead me rightly. I am in charge of my mind. It is my decision for peace or not. I can save myself from the thoughts of darkness by being willing to grasp his hand.

Rev. Deb

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.
