Thoughts on Lessons 208-209

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
The peace of God is shining in me now.
I feel the Love of God within me now.

Both of these lessons direct our attention within to the Divine Core. That is where God is found. And, that is where His Peace and His Love resides. We, and I too, can still believe if everything in our lives were rearranged (deck chairs on the Titanic) then all will be peaceful and I would have all the love in the world. Sometimes we have to make difficult choices in our lives to bring about the love and peace for ourselves.

Yesterday I met with a student and we shared on ways we could do as such. I know for me and this student, setting boundaries were of major importance. Jesus does not call us to suffer, or to be walked on like a doormat. He calls us to end the sacrifice of self and to have full appreciation for who we are, and of course our companions in the world. How can I do this for others if I am not doing it for myself?

That’s the big question, isn’t it? Can we show the love to ourselves that we wish others would show to us? Others may not change and most likely won’t, but we can change our minds about ourselves. We can feel the Love of God within us and let lead the way. We can feel the Peace of God within us and let it light our path.

Are you ready to do the work now?



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.
