I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

182 – I will be still an instant and go home.
183 – I call upon God’s Name and on my own.
184 – The Name of God is my inheritance. 

My life has given me pause to contemplate on what is valuable and what is valueless. Only God is of value in my life. The rest is all filler material that really does nothing but take up space in my mind. My mind is full because of what I placed there. How can I be refilled and replenished by Him when the mind is full of nonsensical imaginings.

Taking out an instant, upon instant, upon more instants throughout the day, I can return Home. I call on Him Who is my Father. I have treasures to behold, yet I am swayed by the glittering of the ego’s toys. It dangles its promise in front of me, yet I am dedicated and close my eyes. Yes, close my eyes to the ego so I can remember what is whole and new and free.

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.
