ACIM Workbook Lesson 49 Insights

“God’s Voice speaks to me all through the day.”

This lesson is very comforting to me. It assures me that no matter how uncertain or confused I might feel in any circumstance, the calm and loving voice for God is always available to me in every instant. To me this is one of the central thoughts of the Course. I am never alone. God’s help is always available to me. No matter how fearful I may feel in a given moment or guilty or sad or angry, God’s Voice is still available to me, ready to shed His Light to heal my perception. I need only quiet my mind and listen. The Holy Spirit is there, always.

As it says in Chapter 8 of the Text, that His Voice is as loud as my willingness to listen. It is my responsibility to be willing to hear the Voice for God. It is not imposed upon me, for if it were, the equality in which God created me would be broken. I am always free not to listen, but I cannot destroy the Voice for God. His comfort is ever present, waiting to be accepted. His loving message is always available to guide me all through the day.

The more I practice staying in peace, the more I practice taking each unsettling thought to the calm place in my mind where truth resides, the more I will let His Voice guide me all through the day. It really is my will to do so, because my will and God’s Will are truly the same. Resistance comes only from identifying with a false image of myself and wanting it to be real. I cannot defend a separate identity, alone and independent of God, and hear His Voice. But as I recognize that my happiness lies in my union with Love, with God, then my mind is open to the message of Love that His Voice offers me in every moment.

This is my intent. The more I practice, the more I experience His loving, comforting presence. I dedicate today to practice.

In order to hear God’s Voice, I must be willing to turn the ego voice down. When my mind is filled up with the ego’s voice, there is no room left to hear God’s Voice.

Today’s lesson is reminding me to quiet the ego’s voice. This may take some determined practice, because if I am used to the ego’s chatter, it will feel strange when it is quieted. It may feel too quiet. But as I continue to practice this, I will get used to this quietness and the peace that comes with it. I am being asked to open to a new habit of quietness, a new habit of making room for God’s Voice. As I make room by stilling the ego’s voice, the Love and comfort of God is always there. Today is a very important day of practice, making room for God’s Voice.

Help me, Holy Spirit, have the willingness to hear the Voice for God. Help me find and sustain that place of quietness in my mind so I can hear my Heavenly Father speak to me so that I may know of His Will for me today. Help me to remember that my will is in accord with His and that to listen would mean my own salvation and the finding of my real home, that place where I am truly welcome. Thank you. Amen.
