“My only function is the one God gave me. My happiness and my function are one.”
If I let go the darkness of the past, the fear that I felt then and continue to remember, I will release myself from the prison of sadness I have made. The past does not have to be long ago; it can be five minutes ago. As I’ve noted, it doesn’t mean ignoring the darkness; rather it means turning within to my Teacher and asking for help in looking at it directly and correctly.
On a practical level, I have a forgiveness opportunity in response to my reaction to what I perceive as unkindness on the part of some neighbors. I can either hold on to the anger and frustration I feel, or allow my Teacher to show me how to think, speak, and act in a loving manner. I am grateful.

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.
