Only my condemnation injures me.

It is my own thoughts that cause me the pain that I seem to experience. If I am down on myself, I am doing it. It doesn’t matter what someone else has said, no matter what the framing of the words. If I let it effect me then somewhere deep down I am believing that what they are telling me is the truth. I have forgotten my own Truth and I have judged against myself and found myself guilty and impart severe punishment upon myself in the form of depression, anger, sadness, misery, whatever.

If I forgive all that is coming into my mind whether it seems that it is coming from outside of me or from inside, then I will simply go about my way in peace. The importance is to take everything in as information. That’s all it is. Information. It is up to me what I will do with that information. Do I judge it? May what someone be saying to me be true? Am I stubborn? Is there a lesson for me to look at?

Excerpt from Lesson 198 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.
