Thoughts on Week 27, Ch. 15, IV. Practicing the Holy Instant

The holy instant is this instant and every instant. The one you want it to be it is.

I desire the holy instant here and now. I see not the past nor the future. I embrace the holy instant right this very moment. Gladness is what I want. I need the release from the nothingness of the world that holds me back from my glory.

I have tried my best, yet for some of those in my life it was never enough, no matter what I did, nor how I encouraged, nor how I listened. Only God’s Will content me. What did I really hope to gain? I didn’t gain anything but further loneliness.

Now it is time to clear the altar to pain, and humble myself before God. I place my altar to you my Father. I seek Your Freedom and Your Love. I put forth more effort in my practice, and I double my willingness so that all littleness will be banished from my mind.

Jesus, I need your assistance, now and forever. Stand with me in the holy instant, be with me, do not let me stand alone again. I know what you teach me is the truth. I trust in you.

I will uncover the thoughts that I have kept hidden that have shut the door on communication. As you have said:

Ask yourself honestly, “Would I want to have perfect communication, and am I wholly willing to let everything that interferes with it go forever?”

I ask myself this presently. I do it in tears but willingness to let every obstacle go. I know the Holy Spirit’s purity will shine all away and bring to my awareness the Love and Peace of God that will carry me Home.


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.
