Keys to this Lesson
This lesson describes you as you are.
You are ONE!
Your perfect unity with God makes change in you impossible.
Look at how perfect you are!
You are in perfect harmony with all that is.
You are holy.
Jesus needs your help today to bring happiness to the world.
He tells us many times in this lesson:
Do not forget today.
Acknowledge Who you are today.
First 5 minutes of every hour.
Practice today’s idea.
You still need discipline of the mind to not allow your mind to wander.
Keep to this schedule as it imposes firmer structure for you.
Do not use your lapses from this schedule as an excuse not to return to it again as soon as you can. There may be a temptation to just give up because you seemingly failed to do what you were supposed to do. Just do it when you remember!
This feeling of temptation to give up on the day is really:
A REFUSAL TO LET YOUR MISTAKE BE CORRECTED AND AN UNWILLINGNESS TO TRY AGAIN.
When you make a mistake and forget, it is just a mistake. It just needs to be corrected. You do not need to berate yourself. Just remember what you are to do.
I am one Self, united with my Creator, at one with every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and in peace.
Then close your eyes and tell yourself again, slowly and thoughtfully.
Allow these words to sink into your mind:
I am one Self.
Repeat several times and then feel the meaning.
Frequent, shorter practices throughout the day.
You need to be reminded of your purpose frequently because you forget.
Your acknowledgement of Who you are, united with God is a call to join with everyone in the world.
To everyone you meet today in your mind tell them this:
You are one Self with me, united with our Creator in this Self. I honor you because of What I am, and What He is, Who loves us both as One.
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.
