ACIM Rewind: Loving Our Inner Critics & Coffee Stains, ACIM Lesson #139

I will accept Atonement for myself. [W-p1.139.1.1]

I have been known, on occasion, to avoid photos. Or listening to my recorded voice. Or reading my own books....

My inner critic goes into overdrive on these occasions, so I sometimes avoided them altogether. Mostly because I always seems to find some blemish. Goofy smile. Or faulty grammatical error.

The interesting thing about these internal diatribes is that I find these same traits endearing in other people. It makes them relatable. And every time I notice a perceived fault. I feel a greater connection with their humanness.

Lesson 139 states we have only one choice. To accept ourselves for the Divine beings that we are. And this is really no choice at all. If you are anything like me, you talk a great game about seeing this Divinity in others, but when it comes to yourself….Well it may feel like a world of coffee stained shirts and dangling participles.

When we truly become whole. When we truly recognize our at-one-ment, we let go of denying the truth of our Divinity in anyone. Including ourselves.

We have a holy mission Dear friends. A goal that is greater than our senseless musings about fault and unworthiness. We are one. All other thoughts are distractions from this holy aim. To love and accept ourselves and others just as we are in Spirit is beautiful to behold. It is even holier to reveal. Seek it today in truth amazing angels. In our one-ness we are perfect.

Namaste Sweet LightWorker.
