ACIM Workbook Lesson 57 Insights

Review of Lessons 31 - 35

This review lesson for me comes back to “What am I allowing into my awareness? Which thought system am I choosing to be in?” The thought system I choose will bring me what I see. This is how I invent the world I see. Ideas leave not their source. What I see is coming from my own mind. There is no outside. That is why I invent the world I see.

If I am not happy, if I am not in peace, I can change it. I can choose peace instead of what I am seeing. I can choose to recognize my right mind. I can choose to recognize the holiness that resides right in my mind, always. From this place I will feel peace, I will be aware of peace, I will extend peace. I will be aware of Love, both in myself and others. It is always my choice. It is all up to my level of willingness to chose to identify with my one Self instead of the ego thought system.

To me this lesson’s principal emphasis is my freedom of choice. It shows me how I have misused it to limit and imprison myself, but in reminding me that my mind is part of God’s and it is very holy, it is also showing me that I can use my choice to let go of the limitations and walk out the prison door. What a relief it is to know the power of my choice. The ego would have me believe that I do not have the choice, that I am the victim of the world I see.

Here I am learning that I have the choice not to buy the ego’s lies. This does not mean that I simply say the world is an illusion and deny what I am experiencing. It does mean that if I experience anything other than peace, that I am believing in something that is untrue. It is a clear indication that I need to turn to the Holy Spirit in my mind and ask His guidance. If I am not experiencing peace, I am following the wrong guide.

Every time i recognize that I am not in peace, it is simply a reminder that I need to ask for help that comes from outside the world that I see. By exercising the choice to listen to a different Guide, I have the help and strength and clarity I need to walk out the prison door and accept the peace of God. I don’t deny that I have believed I am in prison. I simply ask for help to let it go. And I wait with a quiet mind to receive the comfort that God is forever holding out to me.

There is one Life and that I share with Him. As I choose to lift the veil of separated thoughts from my mind, I feel and experience Love, laughter and peace within. This is the freedom of experiencing my true Self. In this freedom I am aware of my oneness with all God’s creations. This is the world I choose to see, shining brightly through the eyes of Love. Peace to my brother who is one with me.
