A meaningless world engenders fear.

“Nothing without meaning exists.”

Although I definitely give a lot of meaning to what I see and experience. We search for meaning. We ask “Who am I?” Yet, here it is all nothing. Now this is not something to be depressed about. It is about that only God can write the meaning.

“The ego rushes in frantically to establish its own ideas there…”

How many times did I believe I knew the reason for a situation or what a friend said in an email. I think “I know” but what it comes down to is that I know nothing at all. My fear searches for meaning so I can feel safe.

If I am with fear, everything I see and touch will project that fear. But as I look around today, and as we do together, we can know “I am looking at a meaningless world. A meaningless world engenders fear because I think I am in competition with God.”

It is easy to find resistance at this point, but take this lesson as it is and keep moving forward. The understanding will come in time.

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.
