Learning That You Are Light

Hello Course Students,

How kind it is of Jesus to share that we can actually learn from the Holy Spirit that we ARE light in this episode’s reading from the Text, The Holy Encounter (T-8.III, pg. 141). This is a key distinction because we are not only clearly being told the fact, we are also being told that we can personally experience it for ourselves. The potential for healing and personal impact is huge with this information.

Jesus also explains that we can accelerate our path to enlightenment by remembering a meeting with anyone is a holy encounter. He challenges us to give up all thoughts and judgments about others because the very process imprisons us and delays us from our own awakening. Instead we are to look beyond the bodies we see to the light within them.

To help us continue to learn how to see this light within ourselves and others, I suggest working with Lesson 181: I trust my brothers, who are one with me (pg. 377). It is in this meditative space where the Holy Spirit will bless our minds with the perception of the light that we ARE.

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

P.S. Our treat this week for the full meditation. Be sure to see Rev. Deb’s meditation to go along with this week’s readings. Be sure to sign up each week to receive the meditations. Free if you are a monthly donor at the $20 and above level. Otherwise you can purchase them in the library.


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.
