This may seem an absurd idea in a world where there is illness, pain, loss, injustice, etc., but it is not. That is because the kind of experience spoken of here is not dependent on circumstances. It is changeless joy, which is unaffected by happenings in the world. It is not an emotion at all, but a state of mind and being, our true being.
Yesterday, I allowed myself to become stressed because I seem unable to find a place to live that I can afford. This morning, as I reviewed this lesson, I realized that I was mistaken because, in spite of the situation, my true joy still remains within me. In other words, “I share God’s will for happiness for me.”
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.
