Accepting the Self God Created

The power of decision is our own. ²And we accept of Him that which we are, and humbly recognize the Son of God. ³To recognize God’s Son implies as well that all self-concepts have been laid aside, and recognized as false. ⁴Their arrogance has been perceived. ⁵And in humility the radiance of God’s Son, his gentleness, his perfect sinlessness, his Father’s Love, his right to Heaven and release from hell, are joyously accepted as our own.

Now do we join in glad acknowledgment that lies are false, and only truth is true. ²We think of truth alone as we arise, and spend five minutes practicing its ways, encouraging our frightened minds with this:

³The power of decision is my own. ⁴This day I will accept myself as what my Father’s Will created me to be.

⁵Then will we wait in silence, giving up all self-deceptions, as we humbly ask our Self that He reveal Himself to us. ⁶And He Who never left will come again to our awareness, grateful to restore His home to God, as it was meant to be.

In patience wait for Him throughout the day, and hourly invite Him with the words with which the day began, concluding it with this same invitation to your Self. ²God’s Voice will answer, for He speaks for you and for your Father. ³He will substitute the peace of God for all your frantic thoughts, the truth of God for self-deceptions, and God’s Son for your illusions of yourself. (A Course in Miracles, W-152.10:1–12:3. See also ACIM Lesson 152 Insights.)

Our true Self has all the attributes of God, being eternally one with our Father. This is not a concept, but a fact.

In dreaming of a world of separation, we have made up a concept of our self. This concept hides the changeless Self that God created from our awareness. We have not lost our true Self. But as long as we identify with a separate self, we cannot know the glory that God shares with our Self. But we have a choice. We can choose to let go of a self concept we made and accept our Self as It is.

We need to accept the Holy Spirit’s help Who always speaks for our Self and our Father. By declaring that the power of decision is our own, we are reminding ourselves that we can choose once again. We can choose to let go of our self concept and accept that we are Love and nothing else. In this acceptance we awaken to the Heaven of God’s Love.
