Simply the best-More ACIM Reviews.
Lesson #21:(I am determined to see things differently. [W-p188.8.131.52]) A personal fav- Despite my insane urge to see all this dirty laundry at my life. I am determined to see the truth. That life is bigger than the laundry. Or my to-do list. That truth is heartbreakingly beautiful and more real than I could ever imagine (like my partner doing laundry ; ) ).
Lesson #22: (What I see is a form of vengeance.[W-p184.108.40.206])) When (on good days) I can get over lack. Scarcity. And getting back at ghosts who have mysteriously ‘wronged’ me somehow. I find myself. I find my peace. And it has nothing to do with what’s going on in the external. Only the sweet, sweet sound of silence within.
Lesson #23: (I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts.[W-p220.127.116.11]) Once I find my center I can-you guessed it-choose again. I can replace my thoughts of negativity and scarcity with the limitless abundance of my source within. What a wonderful world it is.
Lesson #24: (I do not perceive my own best interests.[W-p18.104.22.168]) I am willing to go on a scavenger hunt for good. Pam Grout (my fangirl is showing) suggests taking a walk and looking at the world like a child. Taking an extra moment for the caterpillar or the penny you found for good luck. When our perception changes our lives do too. So why not exchange any illusory yuck-magnets for a pot of gold?
Lesson #25: (I do not know what anything is for.) I used to play dress up in my mother’s 70’s orange bridesmaid gowns when I was a kid. I loved this game of being in burnt-orange tulle and scratchy polyester. As much as I loved the game-you probably wouldn’t catch me wearing that gown to work today. Yet every day I try on my old, outdated thoughts and wear them around like I’m at fashion week. Like my mom’s orange dress, it’s time to put these thoughts in storage. To forego the scratchy perception I have made of my reality. And open my mind to the truth and the beauty of what is. A world that makes much more sense when I see it in love, rather than what I’ve told myself it was for (aka fear).
Namaste Sweet Friends.
