ACIM Lesson 285 The hush of Heaven holds my heart today. My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest.
The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.
1. Father, how still today! ²How quietly do all things fall in place! ³This is the day that has been chosen as the time in which I come to understand the lesson that there is no need that I do anything. ⁴In You is every choice already made. ⁵In You has every conflict been resolved. ⁶In You is everything I hope to find already given me. ⁷Your peace is mine. ⁸My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest. ⁹Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.
2. The stillness of today will give us hope that we have found the way, and traveled far along it to a wholly certain goal. ²Today we will not doubt the end which God Himself has promised us. ³We trust in Him, and in our Self, Who still is one with Him.
All Errors Are Corrected
Jesus is encouraging us to have the day we can have every day. We can let today be one in which we allow ourselves to be carried, which will show us that we can do this always. We do not need to make decisions with the ego-mind. We do not need to plan on our own what to do and when. We can be told because all choices have already been made. The Holy Spirit has corrected all errors. Our part is to simply accept the correction through forgiveness and thus to quiet the ego-mind and be at peace.
My Mind Is at Rest
Interestingly enough, I woke up this morning from a frustrating and upsetting dream. When I read the lesson, I was calmed. But at the same time, there was an insistent thought that today was not a good day for stillness. I felt pulled toward that thought which seemed truer at the moment. But I now know that the mind is my servant not my master. I choose what to believe and I believe that today I can experience the hush of Heaven. I can turn from the raucous noise of the split mind and place my awareness on the peace of God. I can let my mind be at rest. And if I can do that today, I can do it every day.
