It is impossible to see two worlds.

   I am seeing the pieces of baggage that the ego has created in my mind to slow me down from honing in on fulfilling my purpose for being here. One piece of luggage has been flight instructing, another has been becoming a commercial airline pilot, another has been partying with my friends, another has been the desire for other life experiences, another has been triathlons, and the list of ego developed “luggage-habits” goes on. All of these are solutions my ego came up with to help me find happiness within my life. And when I achieved each one, the happiness never really did last.

   Despite that, it still surprises me that I still find it difficult to let go of each piece of luggage. I still have to work at it. Not as hard as I used to but I still have to still keep turning things over, forgiving them and practicing the true desire to let them go. It’s hard to have the willingness sometimes. I think because I didn’t know of a better way; until now.

Excerpt from Lesson 130 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


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.
