“If I so choose, I can depart this world entirely.  It is not death which makes this possible, but it is change of mind about the purpose of the world.  If I believe it has a value as I see it now, so will it still remain for me.  But if I see no value in the world as I behold it, nothing that I want to keep as mine or search for as a goal, it will depart from me.  For I have not sought for illusions to replace the truth.”

Nothing happens by chance. This week-end, I am leaving a physical home I’ve lived in for more than twenty years. The whole process of getting ready has been both freeing and saddening. I have let go of a lot of “stuff” that I don’t need, use, or want. I haven’t seen my new physical home yet, and I am both anticipating and dreading it; however, today’s lesson reminds me that my true home, the home of my spirit, is not a place, but a state of tranquility and love. I don’t have to die to experience it; I just have to change my mind about how I perceive the world where I think I live. This doesn’t mean becoming a bliss ninny, hiding myself from things which seem unpleasant. It means learning to look on all that I perceive in a gentler way. That’s not always easy, but it’s simple. I ask for help from my Elder Brother to do this, and I’m grateful I have the freedom to do it.

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.
