ACIM Workbook Lesson 77 Insights

“I am entitled to miracles.”

Today’s lesson means I am entitled to remember my true Identity. I am entitled to remember the peace of God. I am entitled to extend what I am, the love, joy and peace of God, to everyone. I am entitled to be happy. As I am willing to accept my entitlement, my mind opens more and more to accept the truth. I am part of God. Everyone is part of God. God is but Love and therefore so am I. Inherent in Love is God’s peace, God’s joy, God’s giving all to all. This is true happiness. I am entitled to true happiness because it is already mine. It has always been mine. I am just learning now to accept my entitlement.

Last night I woke up and realized I was concerned about a friend. I took that concern to the Holy Spirit. It seemed like a hopeless situation. The Holy Spirit reminded me that I am the peace of God. He reminded me that my friend is the peace of God. My friend is still safe, whether I remember it or not. My friend’s identity cannot change. The Holy Spirit reminded me that it is not helpful for me to join my friend’s hallucinations of lack and loss. What is helpful is to remember the truth about her. It is helpful to remember that she still is the peace of God. She is still as God created her. Nothing can ever change that. Illusions of harm are just that, illusions.

I spent time telling my friend mentally that she is the peace of God. This also helped me remember that I am the peace of God. This was very helpful for me. I asked for a miracle and received it. I received the change of mind, the change in perception that I asked for. The feeling of worry was transformed into feeling the peace of God. I am entitled to miracles everyday. It is up to me to open my mind to receive them. That is what today and every day is for. As I open up to and am willing to accept the miracles that are always there, waiting for my acceptance, my mind is healed.


“I am entitled to miracles” means that I am entitled to happiness because God’s will for me is happiness. If I am not experiencing happiness, I need a change of mind. I need a new view of what I think I am perceiving. Unhappiness can only come from believing that I am not as I was created by the Source of happiness. It is that belief that must be changed. It is that change of mind that is a miracle. This is why it is important any time I am feeling less than peaceful and joyful to affirm that I am entitled to miracles. I do not need to accept fear, sadness, guilt, anger or distress of any kind. I am entitled to miracles.

Through my studies of A Course in Miracles, I have come to experience more and more peace and happiness in my life. Yet if I honestly look at how I feel throughout the day, I cannot claim to be perfectly happy and in deep peace in every moment. This tells me that I still need to be reminded that I am entitled to miracles. I still need to be reminded about my true Identity. I still need to be reminded that God has not changed His mind about me. He still gives me all of His joy, all of His peace, all of His Love, all the time.

I want the peace of God, fully, without limit. I want to be able to see my brother as innocent, always, no matter what behavior he appears to be displaying. I want to be able to feel the Love of God flowing through me and connecting with every brother in every instant. In truth, this is what is happening all the time. It is only the shadows of false images and mistaken beliefs that keep me from recognizing this as a fact, now. And so I am grateful for this lesson which reminds me that I am entitled to miracles.


With the combination of studying the Course, applying these lessons to my everyday life, and a little willingness, the thought of being entitled to miracles because of who I am is finally beginning to sink into my head. There are no words for the peace and serenity this thought gives me. I find myself still resisting, I think, because the thought is so alien to me. In my own sick way, I fear change, even if the change is for the better. But I find that as I slowly let go of the old tapes and begin trusting God, the Holy Spirit, I begin to welcome change and realize it is possible that I am entitled to miracles.

As I remember this, I try to apply this thought in my personal life with my loved ones; in my work life, especially when my boss is, in my perception, irrational; or with people in my world who aren’t behaving the way I feel they should.

This Course, in itself, is a miracle in my life and for that I am truly grateful. I place my belief of this thought at the altar of my Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit; please help me have the willingness to use this thought throughout the day. Amen.
