Lesson 329

I have already chosen what You will.

1. Father, I thought I wandered from Your Will, defied it, broke its laws, and interposed a second will more powerful than Yours. ²Yet what I am in truth is but Your Will, extended and extending. ³This am I, and this will never change. ⁴As You are One, so am I one with You. ⁵And this I chose in my creation, where my will became forever one with Yours. ⁶That choice was made for all eternity. ⁷It cannot change, and be in opposition to itself. ⁸Father, my will is Yours. ⁹And I am safe, untroubled and serene, in endless joy, because it is Your Will that it be so.

2. Today we will accept our union with each other and our Source. ²We have no will apart from His, and all of us are one because His Will is shared by all of us. ³Through it we recognize that we are one. ⁴Through it we find our way at last to God.

This lesson is another way of reinforcing what Jesus tells us throughout the Course. We are in God and have never left God. This world and these lives are just ancient memories that occurred for an instant. They were corrected by the Holy Spirit the moment they were thought. I used to think this was such a strange idea and very hard to believe. Now I think that believing we have overcome the Will of God and become something He did not create is the strange idea. How could we ever believe that was possible?

So, what keeps me living as if I am an ego?

The only thing that keeps me from living even here in endless joy is the lingering belief in the power of the ego. And yet, I know this cannot be. In lesson 73, Jesus assures us it is not true. ⁶Today it is the ego that stands powerless before your will. ⁷Your will is free, and nothing can prevail against it. (ACIM, W-73.7:6-7) I still feel the pull of ego thinking sometimes. However, I know that it cannot keep me and so I quickly free myself.

Once I had cleared my mind enough to accept what I am, it would scare me when I would get pulled back into a story. But each time it happened, I would remember that this life is just a strange memory and not reality. This helped me to shake myself loose from it. I forgave the false belief that I could be powerless against a lie.

Releasing the idea of a will separate from God is my purpose; it is why I am here. As Jesus says: ⁶That choice was made for all eternity. That we all share that same Will is what makes us One with each other and with God. And I am grateful it is so because the Will of God that is also my will is how I find my way back to God. It is why I cannot be forever lost in my mind dreaming stories of suffering and death. My reality is endless joy because that is the Will of God.

I used to feel guilty because I thought I had established my own will over God’s Will.

But now I know that I didn’t do that and that I could never have done it, so I don’t feel guilty anymore. It took longer to let go of feeling just a little trepidation at the idea of fully embracing God’s Will, even if it is my own. I had forgotten what that is, and the unknown is always a little scary. But it all worked out as I took baby steps giving my mind time to adjust.

Let’s not forget that our special theme over these last several days has been, “What is Creation?” And the answer is, “We are creation.”

In other words, in spite of this dream of consciousness, humanness, and world, what we really are has continued unabated. That’s what awakening is all about. It’s awakening from what isn’t true to what is true.

Are you ready?

My Thoughts

Yes, I became ready. In spite of my unease at the idea of something so profoundly different than the world I made and all I remember, I became ready.

Past Entry


The Course tells us over and over, in many different ways, that nothing has happened. We are as we were created, one, indivisible, part of God, in God, forever unchanged. This will that seems to be different from the Will of God is just a technique for achieving an illusion of the impossible. It was never meant to replace the Will of God and could not and did not.

The experience we seem to be having is just play. We play at being separate. And we play at being different. We play at drama, suffering, and making choices. We play at making something where there is nothing. I am in awe at the realism and the variety and diversity that went into this imaginative, ingenious play. And the cleverness of placing a fail-safe, the Holy Spirit forever in our minds to awaken us from the dream when we have had enough.

It seems we have played long enough and have answered the question the play was meant to answer. We begin to arouse from this long dream; each seeming part, one by one, is choosing to read the books inserted into the dream to point the way home. We are gathering in groups to help each other awaken, and so are remembering that we are meant to be one. Of course, we are one.

This show has had quite a run, but every show must end, and reality takes its place.

I feel relief that the show is, after all, not the truth of things, and I am not this. Dear God, I have but one Will, and am relieved to realize I have always had only that Will. As this truth becomes more and more evident to me, I am filled with happiness and gratitude. Today’s mantra: There is only God’s Will, and, in joy, I embrace it.
