“You have surely noticed an emphasis throughout our recent lessons on the connection between fulfilling your function and achieving happiness. This is because you do not really see the connection. Yet there is more than just a connection between them; they are the same. Their forms are different, but their content is completely one.”

In case I think that the Course asks me to abandon reason, there is this lesson, in which I am urged to think about certain premises which lead to a conclusion-that my happiness and my function are the same. If forgiveness ( my function) means letting go of the past and the future and living as far as possible in the present, then happiness is inevitable as I will neither ruminate about dark memories or worry about what will happen. No, I’m not there yet, but at least I’m willing to consider what Jesus says here about the love of God and the truth of Truth.

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.
