“Heaven is the decision I must make.”

Practical application is the hallmark of MiraclesOne, and this morning I had a wonderful example of what that means.

After my morning meditation, I checked my email. I found a notice from Google that I was almost out of storage space. On following the link to my account, I found that most of my allotted storage was filled up with files I no longer use. Since I’m not the most savvy person when it comes to technology, my first reaction was to panic! What do I do now? I need email since I can’t read any print mail, etc. Then I participated in the daily lesson practice call, which calmed me considerably. I started putting the lesson into practice immediately, not asking for the situation to be changed, but rather that my mind be changed about it. At an appropriate time, I called my friend Jacob, who helps me with computer issues, asking him to call me on Monday. Then I settled down to read a book for an online class I’m taking. The phone rang about half an hour later. It was Jacob, telling me that he was five blocks away and could come to help. He doesn’t usually work on week-ends. Well, he came, he saw, and he conquered by deleting the unnecessary files. Problem solved.

As I said above, I didn’t ask for anything in the outer world to be changed, but rather that my perception of the situation reflect today’s lesson. I am very grateful that it did.




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.
