I am forever an Effect of God.
Father, I was created in Your Mind, a holy Thought that never left its home. I am forever Your Effect, and You forever and forever are my Cause. As You created me I have remained. Where You established me I still abide. And all Your attributes abide in me, because it is Your Will to have a Son so like his Cause that Cause and its Effect are indistinguishable. Let me know that I am an Effect of God, and so I have the power to create like You. And as it is in Heaven, so it is on earth. Your plan I follow here, and at the end I know that You will gather Your effects into the tranquil Heaven of Your Love, where earth will vanish, and all separate thoughts unite in glory as the Son of God.
Let us today behold earth disappear, at first transformed, and then, forgiven, fade entirely into God’s holy Will.
I didn’t get a chance to read the lesson till this evening, as the Manchester trip was an early start and a late finish, but thankfully it was ACIM support group night, where we began with laughter – actual joke telling, and ended with the lesson. It was a lovely way to start, and set the tone for the rest of the night.
I had to pick my son up from MediaCity in Manchester and was astonished to see how much it has changed since I last visited the Lowry eight years ago. I’d like to go back and spend a bit of time exploring it again.
I had a massive example of the applications of yesterday’s lesson, that the things (and people) in my life reflects my thoughts. Now I have to make a decision to think different thoughts, project different ideas. Please Holy Spirit, give me strength, courage and guidance to do so.
