The Light in You


Today I shared with those on the “Lessons in Light” list a wonderful Guided Meditation I recorded this morning that helps us to integrate this passage from ACIM: The light in you is what the universe longs to behold. All living things are still before you, for they recognize Who walks with you.  The light you carry is their own. 

If you are interested, you can go to www.lessonsinlight.org to sign up for today’s lesson and previous and future lessons.

 

Awake to a New Perception on the Election


My Dear Friends,

Early this morning we found we have a new President-Elect in Donald Trump. You may have chosen to vote for him or to vote for Hillary Clinton. If the latter is true and you are awash with grief and emotions this morning, let me say to you to first and foremost, honor your feelings. Let yourself be with those feelings for as long as you need to do so. All the while remembering the Holy Spirit can visit these feelings with us. Let Him hold your hand and minister to you. Then, as you are ready, be willing to see in a new light.

I believe it is no accident that today’s lesson is Lesson 313 – Now let a new perception come to me.

I wrote the following years ago in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages on this same Lesson:

When I am ready to let go of all that I have placed my faith in, I will sit in contemplation with the Holy Spirit. As I release each thought of fear to Him, peace floods into my awareness. I have given Him the chains that have bound me. He returns ever so gently with His Love. Indeed in this very instant of release, “Now let a new perception come to me.” I am ready to see myself and my brothers with the Vision of Christ. I am radiant in this knowing that I can now see a forgiven world, for it is through my willingness to let go of old perceptions that the miracles are experienced. Forgiveness once again, is the focal point for it is the key to my happiness. Through forgiveness I can see the truth and return to the richness of a life in God. It is important for me to remember today that forgiveness works as I am ready to work with Holy Spirit with my thoughts. I affirm that today, I will offer all thoughts to the Holy Spirit for His true perception and that I will accept His peace gladly.

In this lesson we offer our prayer of the heart to God by recognizing there is a vision that sees all as pure. As we do the terrific fear leaves us and love is its replacement. Love is only present. Here, we see world forgiven and the Eyes of Christ are used to allow a new perception, a true perception, be in our mind.

Tall order with what you are feeling? I know it is. I was disappointed myself by the outcome but as I communed with the Holy Spirit for hours overnight it seemed, I knew in my heart that union is what solves the problem of separation thinking.

As we allow the Holy Spirit to help us to envision the world with forgiveness, love and peace, we will see how beautiful we all are. We will experience our interconnection. We will affirm how holy we were created. We save the world when we have joined. For in our vision it becomes as holy as the light in us.

 

May we all be blessed in peace.

Rev. Deb

Thoughts on Lesson 201


Introduction to Review VI
Review of Lesson 181

In this review period, 15 minutes twice a day, plus we add on hourly remembrances. This assists us in keeping God in the forefront of our minds. With God as our sole focus in our minds, our life is happier and easier. He also tells us here that the last 20 lessons contain everything we have learned in this Course.  IF…we practice and apply. That is the key.

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

Our goal is to move beyond the words and into the experience of what the words hold. If we are tempted, we use: “This thought I do not want. I choose instead ____” and gratefully use the review lesson for the day. We place our trust in the Holy Spirit, our Teacher, to lead us on the path.

Lesson 201 – Review of Lesson 181

I trust my brothers, who are one with me.

Trust in my life has rocked me to the core. Mainly it’s been mistrust from childhood into adulthood. I know still even with my practice of ACIM for many, many years I can still have my antennas up in hyper-vigilance. I could place blame on the many people in my life who “caused” me to be this way. Ultimately, it is discernment with the Holy Spirit that can assist me in knowing whom to trust and when. In the end, I trust the true nature of my brothers.

That is what this lesson speaks of, trusting the truth in our brother. On that wavelength we can never fail or be hurt. There are times we need to step away from people in our lives who wish to do harm or hurt. We back away with love and offer the blessing. In this, we are blessed. As we learn to love ourselves, we learn to love everyone’s True Self. This comes with time as we study and practice. Certainly I am not the same person I was 25 years ago opening the book for the first time. I am not the same person I was 10 years ago or even 10 days ago or 10 hours ago. We are fine-tuning who we are each day. You do grow, whether it seems a little or lot, let the process be what it is. Don’t worry, Holy Spirit has your back!

 

 

Thoughts on Week 26, Ch. 15, III. Littleness versus Magnitude


Be not content with littleness. That’s all that I have felt of late is littleness. Littleness and abandonment. How could I be content with such. This world means nothing, it is dark in its nothingness. By choosing this, I have chosen the opposite of peace. I chose nothing.

There is a deep responsibility you owe yourself, and one you must learn to remember all the time. The lesson may seem hard at first, but you will learn to love it when you realize that it is true and is but a tribute to your power. You who have sought and found littleness, remember this: Every decision you make stems from what you think you are, and represents the value that you put upon yourself. Believe the little can content you, and by limiting yourself you will not be satisfied. For your function is not little, and it is only by finding your function and fulfilling it that you can escape from littleness.

It is a lesson that is hard, so very hard. It is from my own state of mind. It is from my very own beliefs. It is from the littleness I have embraced. I have allowed everything that has happened to me drag me down. I believed what was said of me. I believed it all. Yet, Holy Spirit can cleanse these thoughts. He can purify the littleness and let me experience the magnitude that is mine.

Do I want joy or sorrow?

Sorrow has been enough of my life. Time for joy to take precedent. I cannot trust the ego and its dark witnesses. I can only trust the Holy Spirit from this moment forward. I will be skeptical of the ego’s voice and I will only listen for truth. I can only trust Jesus as well. I will allow my holiness shine on and on. I will forgive those who saw only my littleness and wanted my demise. I will see only the magnitude and grace of everyone.

Thoughts on Lesson s 171 & 172


(151) All things are echoes of the Voice for God.
(152) The power of decision is my own.
(153) In my defenselessness my safety lies.
(154) I am among the ministers of God.

In these review lessons we are surrounding our practice with the thought, “God is but Love, and therefore so am I.” We use this with each review lesson.

I only need put one foot in front of the other. I stay mindful. I am present. The still Voice will speak to me as I still myself. I silence the thoughts of the ego to receive only what He can give me. He alone offers me Love. He alone offers me Peace.

Let us all be practitioners today and everyday as we undertake these Review Lessons.
