ACIM Lesson 23

I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.

Some friends & I love to go to Boothbay Maine every year. Far from go-go-go, this trip is relaxing. We sit. We chat. We eat amazing food. And we chill.

Aaaaaand we puzzle. Puzzle? Yup, we put together at least two- or three, thousand-piece puzzles. Some are easy. Some pieces look exactly the same and are hard to differentiate.

Even when we think a piece of the puzzle can’t possibly belong, eventually we see just where it fits.

Lesson 23 reminds me that our thoughts can be very much like these puzzle pieces. Each one unique. Each one valuable. Some with sharp, attacking edges.

Every one makes up a part of the world I choose to see. Completes the total picture. And if I want a world that is different. That transforms this picture. It begins with a thought.

THIS is where I can have a true impact on the world. Here is where I can create a new picture from my little puzzling thoughts.The trick is to remember I am the puzzle-maker. That I am the creator of these thoughts and can therefore affect my world by changing just one single piece (aka thought).

The others will follow. The edges will soften. To accommodate the bigger picture.

Adapt the picture so that all the pieces fit. Open the door to Narnia. To a world that is out-pictured as a life beyond your wildest dreams. Accept. Receive. Let go of the sharp edges.

Begin with your next thought.

Namaste dear ones!
