I’ve decided to do A Course in Miracles (ACIM)again. When I completed it the first time in 2005, I couldn’t understand why anyone would want, or need, to do it again. Surely, I thought, if one followed all the lessons as prescribed, and had all the learning, there should be no need to do it again. How naive I was then, as I often am about things spiritual. How grossly I underestimated the the egos ability to find any and every available opportunity to re-establish itself in little pockets of fear, feeding and growing larger.
I am now in my tenth year of active spiritual development; prior to that I didn’t even believe in a spirit. ACIM helped me to understand, in ways that speak to me directly, that only love is real, and anything that isn’t love is fear. But when my resistance is low, and the ego speaks more loudly than usual, I forget, and I believe fear to be real. This year will be my treat to myself. My time to re-establish myself in the energy of love on a daily basis. I am currently at the undoing of old beliefs stage. My lesson today is:
‘My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.’
‘This is the first idea that is related to a major phase of the correction process; the reversal of the thinking of the world. It seems as if the world determines what you perceive. Today’s idea introduces the concept that your thoughts determine the world you see.’
