“You need the practice periods today. The exercises teach sin is not real, and all that you believe must come from sin will never happen, for it has no cause. Accept Atonement with an open mind, which cherishes no lingering belief that you have made a devil of God’s Son. There is no sin. We practice with this thought as often as we can today, because it is the basis for today’s idea.”
Before I came to the Course, when someone, including me, said, “God’s will be done,” it was often with a sense of resignation. If God was real, then His will would be done, no matter what we wanted, and that will might call for us to do something difficult and even painful. Now, when I say, “Your will be done, Father,” I do so with a sense of lightness and ease, because I know that God wills only good for me and all of us. I may not perceive it yet, my mind being clouded by the ego’s thought system, but I am certain that when I am willing to give up the nightmare I’m weaving now, I will know true joy, a joy not dependent on circumstances of any kind.

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.
