“No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision.  No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him.  No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants.  And no one dies without his own consent.  Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose.  Here is your world, complete in all details.  Here is its whole reality for you.  And it is only here salvation is.”

This is one of those lessons in which Jesus asks us to look at the darkness with him. It’s much like the “responsibility for sight” section of the Text. It’s a hard lesson, and yet it’s a liberating one as well, because I can decide not to punish myself for unreal sins. As he says, “Truth is true, and nothing else is true,” and the truth is that, with the strength of God in me and in all of us, I can change what I want; I can “elect to change all thoughts that hurt”. Thank you, Father.

Blessings,

Mari

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.
