God did not create a meaningless world.

“What God did not create does not exist.”

Yes, indeed. This lesson can seem difficult when we are naming all the examples of the “horrors” of this world and certainly there are plenty to name. We also have the opportunity to name our fear. The key is to name the exact fear and not generally speaking.

God did not create that COVID, and so it is not real.
God did not create that climate change, and so it is not real.
God did not create that insurrection, and so it is not real.
God did not create fibromyalgia, and so it is not real.
God did not create my brother’s death, and so it is not real.

God did not create a meaningless world.

As I list these out, I can hear the ego’s voice in my mind saying, “But of course it is real, you see or feel it! It is a part of you or part of this world. Be upset! Be angry! Be sad!”

Yet, the practice helps me to just “be” with what is without judgment. It’s a noting process similar to that in mindfulness.

-Rev. Deb

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.
