ACIM Workbook Lesson 84 Insights

Review: “Love created me like Itself.”
and “Love holds no grievances.”

With every situation, it is helpful that I remember that I am Love. With every situation, it is helpful to remember that everyone else is Love. With every situation, it is helpful to remember that only Love is real. Illusions of separation are meaningless and I do not have to give them meaning. It is when I give them meaning that I forget my Self and the Self in others.

I am here to be truly helpful. I can only be truly helpful when I allow my perceptions of distinct bodies with distinct minds to be undone by the Holy Spirit. If I am not at peace, let me remember that I am holding a grievance against the truth. Let me take that grievance to the Source of Love That shines a light on it and shows me that it is not real.

Love holds no grievances. When I hold a grievance, I am forgetting What I am. I am attacking my Self. Today I am willing to practice recognizing grievances for what they are and handing them over to the Light so that they can be undone. I am willing to focus on this practice today.


Since Love created me like Itself, and Love holds no grievances, judgment is never justified. Any time I judge, it is because I have denied What I am. I have denied my Self. It is only by Self denial that I could believe that it is possible to judge. The body’s eyes were made as instruments of judgment. They show me only differences and I have learned to label these differences. I see a shape defined by differences and I call it a piano or a tree. This instrument, designed to show me differences, was made to make the illusion of separation appear real. This is denial of my Self as Love created me.

Yet even in this world of denial it is possible to let the denial go. While it is possible to simply cease the denial, in practice the denial is let go of gradually. The sudden and complete release from the image I have made of myself would be terrifying because it would appear that I am sacrificing my identity. And so the Holy Spirit is present in my mind to teach me in every moment as I am willing to be taught.

Today I would practice, with the Holy Spirit’s help, recognizing the little grievances, the little judgments that run through my mind. I am willing to turn each of them over to the Holy Spirit for Him to shine His Light upon them and show me the truth beyond the illusion, show me the unity beyond the perception of separation and differences.

Here is peace. Here I experience the joy of connecting in Love with all that is. All conflict disappears. I see that I am one with all my brothers and our interests are the same. We are all Love and our only function is to extend that Love.


“As I look on this, let me remember my Creator.”

This morning, I was doing the stair-master at the gym while watching the images on the television monitors. The images I saw brought great distress to my mind. I found myself in a time of prayer, which turned out to be threefold.

I prayed for the two men being held hostage, that they may feel the great outpouring of love extending to them and that a Comfort greater than anything found within this world will make Himself known to them.

I prayed for the captors, that they may receive so much as a glimpse of their own Divinity and know (no matter how deeply hidden) they desire not these two men any harm.

And I prayed for my own desire to hate, that I may remember it be only myself I crucify with such hate.

“I will not use this to attack love.”
