Lesson 146

My mind holds only what I think with God.

(131) No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.

(132) I loose the world from all I thought it was.

The reason my mind holds only what I think with God is that my mind is in God. The thoughts I think I think are just imagination, not true thoughts. They are not eternal thoughts so they are not thoughts at all and do not exist. Every time I say to myself that my mind holds only what I think with God, I am reminding myself of the truth and claiming it for myself. I am turning away from the nonsense of ego thinking and toward my Self. 

I Cannot Fail

Because I am trying to remember the only true thing in existence, my Self, Which is in God, I cannot fail. How can I fail to know myself? There is a way to get back to sanity and remember Who I am. To do so, I must loose the world from all I thought it was. The world is in my mind and so I do this as I question my thoughts. If I feel anything but joyful, I pay attention to what I was thinking and I bring that belief to the Holy Spirit for correction. That is how I heal my mind and a healed mind shows me the real world. While this is not reality, it is a reflection of reality.

How I Loose the World

Here is an example of how I loose the world from what I thought it was. One time I was in a wreck. A man somehow missed the fact that I was driving on the road he wanted to turn into and just T-boned me. At one time, I would have been upset by this and probably angry at the man for his carelessness. But that is not what happened.

After being in the car wreck, I had headaches and an aching body. The ego would have loved to make a big drama of this. It would use these circumstances to prove I was suffering because of another’s carelessness. But this time I wasn’t interested. I didn’t want to use this situation as an excuse to move away from my brother. I didn’t want this wreck and its aftermath to become a wall between me and my brother and between me and God. The symptoms of pain and achiness were just ideas. I knew that I didn’t have to believe them. The idea that this man somehow forced his way into my script and made me his victim was too ridiculous for words.

Giving the World Another Purpose

Yes, I came here to hide from God, to escape my guilt. But now, I am using this life to awaken from this dream that I could be guilty. And I wonder how I ever thought that I wanted to hide from God. So instead of using the world to dream of separation, I am using it to awaken. And awakening from a dream of being separate from God is all that is happening here. In truth, we never left God and we are still as He created us and where he placed us.

This is what we are told in the Manual for Teachers.

³Choices made long since appear to be open; yet to be made. ⁴What has been learned and understood and long ago passed by is looked upon as a new thought, a fresh idea, a different approach. ⁵Because your will is free you can accept what has already happened at any time you choose, and only then will you realize that it was always there. (ACIM, M-2.3:3-5)

So clearly, we cannot fail to reach the truth as we loose the world from what we thought it was.
