How to Have a Blessed Day

The ego is the part of the mind that believes in division. ²How could part of God detach itself without believing it is attacking Him? …⁵If you identify with the ego, you must perceive yourself as guilty. ⁶Whenever you respond to your ego you will experience guilt, and you will fear punishment. ⁷The ego is quite literally a fearful thought. …¹⁰Listening to the ego’s voice means that you believe it is possible to attack God, and that a part of Him has been torn away by you. ¹¹Fear of retaliation from without follows, because the severity of the guilt is so acute that it must be projected.

Whatever you accept into your mind has reality for you. ²It is your acceptance of it that makes it real. ³If you enthrone the ego in your mind, your allowing it to enter makes it your reality. ⁴This is because the mind is capable of creating reality or making illusions. ⁵I said before that you must learn to think with God. ⁶To think with Him is to think like Him. ⁷This engenders joy, not guilt, because it is natural. ⁸Guilt is a sure sign that your thinking is unnatural. ⁹Unnatural thinking will always be attended with guilt, because it is the belief in sin. ¹⁰The ego does not perceive sin as a lack of love, but as a positive act of assault. ¹¹This is necessary to the ego’s survival because, as soon as you regard sin as a lack, you will automatically attempt to remedy the situation. ¹²And you will succeed. ¹³The ego regards this as doom, but you must learn to regard it as freedom. (A Course in Miracles, T-5.V.3:1-2,5-7,10-11;4. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Guilt is a valuable signal that our thinking is unnatural. If we practice being mindful of these signals and asking the Holy Spirit to help us heal our thoughts, we can change our life experience. Instead of experiencing fear, we can have our perception transformed and experience peace and joy. Our natural thinking is always an expression of Love.

The more we set aside our fear-based thoughts, the more we will experience the Heaven of God’s Love. Today we practice taking our guilty thoughts to the Holy Spirit to exchange them for His Thoughts of Love. It will be a day of many blessings.
