Review Lesson 193

When the time came for the problem to be resolved and it wasn’t, I began to feel stressed, irritated and angry. I wasn’t meeting my expectations and so I began to believe in my own inadequacies and shortcomings. I began to feel angrier and a self-hatred. I felt trapped not knowing which way to go to solve the problem. I felt more and more disconnected from Inner Wisdom. Blinders were put on within my mind and I was unable to focus clearly. My mind became closed instead of open to possible alternatives in solving the problem.

   I became so wrapped up and frustrated on this situation that I became absolutely miserable and useless in a way. I eventually stepped away from the situation and carried the anger and the fear with me for a long time. I felt like I had failed a very simple task and was afraid that my co-workers would look down upon me and criticize me for failing. This was a very unpleasant experience. It was my own little hell within the illusion of hell. It wasn’t until I began to completely resurrender myself to God that I began to feel a letting go and feel free again.

Excerpt from Lesson 213 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.
