ACIM Workbook Lesson 244 Insights

“I am in danger nowhere in the world.”

Opening to God is opening to the awareness of safety. Opening to God is opening to the awareness of peace and eternal joy. In God there is constancy. God is consistent and does not change.

If I do not feel safe, it is because I am not remembering God’s Love and peace. God’s Love and peace are What I am and so I am not remembering my one Self. It is frightening to feel all alone and separate from God. Making decisions on my own is not a happy situation.

Dear God, I surrender my belief in individuality to You. I surrender thinking that I have to decide what anything means on my own. I surrender my separate identity. I see how false it is and how it causes only fear. I open my mind to You today. I relax into Your Love and rest in Your peace. We are one and nothing else is true. Herein lies my safety. It lies nowhere else. I surrender all my fearful dreams to You and they dissolve in Your healing Light.


If I am not experiencing God’s perfect peace, I must be in some way perceiving danger or threat. I can only perceive this if I believe I am separate from God’s Love and safety. This is the core mistake that is the basis for the appearance of this world. The world is the effect of believing that it is possible to be without God’s Love. The Course tells us only Love is real. If that is true then the world we perceive must be false.

My reawakening to the reality of Love is how I remember that I am in danger nowhere in this world. The means for returning to Love is forgiveness. It is letting go of attempting to replace God’s Love with illusions of individuality and specialness.

Because we made the world of illusions, it will appear real to us because we believe in what we made. That is why we need to practice listening to the Holy Spirit, Who did not make the world of illusions and thus does not believe it. He is the Bridge of return, given us by God so that no matter what insane illusions we may make, there is always a means for returning to sanity.

Holy Spirit, I give my thoughts to you. I am tired of wearying myself with trying to hold together a world of illusions. I am tired of trying to control reality and control the world. I would step back and let you be the Director and the Guide. I know that you will show me the way Home to the safety of God’s loving Arms. I give the burden of control to You. With a sigh of relief, I step back and follow You. With You holding my hand, we walk lightly and carry the Light of Love. This day I walk in gratitude.
