“Today, then, let us practice with these thoughts: Let me not forget my function. Let me not try to substitute mine for God’s. Let me forgive and be happy.”
I have not memorized the order of the lessons, so I did not remember that this lesson is about the function I have–my true nature and activity. I am grateful that I now understand this word, so that to forgive is less something added on to me than simply an outgrowth of who I really am–part of God’s One Creation. Letting go of the past, then, is how I should live each day. This is simple, but not always easy, as the ego mind keeps attempting to pull me back into dark memories of difficult situations. When I feel such a pull, my choice is to turn within to my Teacher and ask for help in fulfilling my true purpose–my true function–forgiving.

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.
