ACIM Workbook Lesson 79 Insights

“Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.”

As I worked with today’s idea, I saw how applying the understanding that there is one problem and therefore one solution can help me with the seemingly varied of the “problems” in this world. I saw that an easy way for me to describe the one problem is the belief that loss is possible.

Separation brings the experience of loss. When I remember that separation is impossible and I remain at one with the Love that created me, the perception of loss disappears. I no longer feel threatened. And with this sense of safety comes deep peace. When I am in this place of deep peace, I have let go of any idea of defining the problem myself. My mind is open to the Holy Spirit’s solution. I find that even my perception of the problems of form in this world find easy resolution.

The solutions come through synchronicities and ideas come into my mind that changes my perception of the problem. This is a result of accepting the idea of one problem, one solution. I no longer try to define the problem myself. I then experience the peace that comes with remembering the real solution, which is my unity with God. And then my mind is open to Holy Spirit’s inspiration in how to be most helpful in the situation I see myself in. This frees me from fear and doubt and saves me time to continue my focus on healing my mind. It is a win-win situation leading to growing awareness that I remain safe in the Heart of Love.


I am learning from this lesson to recognize the real problem — separation — behind every problem. I am learning to step back from separation’s perspective, which is the ego’s perspective. The ego always sees in terms of separation. The ego is the idea of separation.

Within the ego thought system, there is always a continuous flow of problems because the underlying problem is trying to be separate from Love. The ego operates within the framework of time and space. Love operates within the all encompassing, framework of formless Love, which is eternal and changeless. Whatever thought system I attach to, I will experience.

This lesson is reminding me to step back from the ego thought system. The ego thought system is an hallucination. We could never truly be separate from our Source, which is all encompassing Love. When I step back from the ego thought system, I open to what is real. It fills my heart and mind.

In truth, we all are the Spirit of Love. As Love, we all are eternal. What we all are is outside the framework of time and space. As I practice stepping back from what I think I know and go to the Holy Spirit with every perceived problem, I am again returned to the awareness that I am Love and that nothing else matters because nothing else is real.

From this perspective, there are no real problems. The awareness of peace returns. My priorities get shifted. I return to the experience of God’s peace and joy. With peace always comes understanding. When the light gets turned on, the darkness disappears. Separation is seen for the bogus thought system it is. The ego is seen for the false idea it is. Simple, uncomplicated Love returns to my awareness and I remember that all is well in eternity. All is really safe, no matter what hallucinations appear to be real. All are loved. All are Home.


Just as the lesson states, there seems to be no end to my problems; just as one is settled, another arises, then another. And unless I recognize the problem, I’ll never know the solution. And it is so true that there is never a time in my life when I feel completely free of problems and at peace.

Most Holy Spirit, help me have the willingness to understand what this lesson means because I do despair when just as I feel a sense of peace, another “problem” surfaces and I sometimes feel like giving up and, like the lesson says, a “failure.” Help me to step back and recognize the problem as is truly is — the thought of separation. I am grateful today for the fact that my Source is trying to reach me and help me live a more peace filled life. Thank you, Father. Amen.
