Father, my freedom is in You alone.

   If I am feeling a twinge of sadness or a sliver of upset then I am not free. At those times I feel weighed down by the heaviness that I have made by these thoughts of fear. I may even feel it in my physical body in one way or another. When I then turn my attention to God, I am given the means in which I can lift the weight from my spiritual shoulders. Turning my attention to God assures me that I have the tools to remember the truth and allow freedom to come into my mind.    As I begin to quiet my mind, my mind may indeed chatter with all the worries and concerns that may seem to be right there. Even though I may even know intellectually that it is all fear, all from the past wanting to come into the future and present, it chatters away and I cannot seem to rest. In these situations, I can “ride the wave” so to speak. I allow the feelings and thoughts to be there, slowing rising and then falling, not resisting, but simply allowing them to be there. I am the observer. As I acknowledge, I can release them as they flow back into the nothingness from which they came.

******************

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.
