Miracles Are Seen In Light

ACIM Lesson 111

Lesson 111

For morning and evening review:

1. (91) Miracles are seen in light.

²I cannot see in darkness. ³Let the light of holiness and truth light up my mind, and let me see the innocence within.

I want miracles and I expect them because they are my right. However, I won’t be aware of it even though they are given if my attention is focused on dark thoughts. I must learn to look away from the ego and toward the Holy Spirit for me to benefit from miracles. My only goal is the peace of God, and I have achieved that goal for the most part. But sometimes, I allow the world to distract me from peace. An example of this occurred Monday.

The Ego Interpretation of the Experience

I had a very busy and physically active holiday weekend. When I got home, I was exhausted and went to bed early. I got up the next morning expecting to be well-rested, but discovered that I was still tired. For a little while, I was feeling tense about this and was trying to push my way through my exhaustion to get things done. I felt like I was stumbling in the shadows of my darkened mind. Then I realized that I was no longer peaceful and I know what to do when that happens.

I saw that my problem was not a tired body, it was that my attention was on the ego interpretation of this experience. I let that go immediately and peace returned as quickly. Then I allowed the body to slow down and rest until it was recovered, and I did this in peace. Miraculously, I got everything done that needed to be done. But the real miracle was that I saw the problem for what it was, a belief in my mind. I let go of the belief that I shouldn’t be tired and light displaced the shadows. I let myself be at peace.

Sometimes It Feels Harder

2. (92) Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.

²I see through strength, the gift of God to me. ³My weakness is the dark His gift dispels, by giving me His strength to take its place.

Monday’s opportunity to receive the miracle of a healed mind was pretty simple. I just needed to pay attention and choose again. It doesn’t always feel so easy, though, really it is. When it doesn’t feel easy it is because I have some resistance to letting something go. Or I don’t know how to see it differently. But since my desire for peace is strong, I overcome these obstacles.

When I am listening to the ego, I feel weak, like I can’t do what needs to be done. But I know this isn’t true. I have the strength of God in me and I can access that strength simply by desiring it. When my son was sick, I temporarily fell headlong into his story. I worried about him and listened to all the dark “what if” thoughts of the ego. I had to redirect my thoughts often during the day before I finally chose peace instead.

Looking Directly With the Holy Spirit

Though it took longer, it was the same process as always and not any harder. The momma gene kept pushing me toward worry. And it feels normal to worry about a sick child even when that child is grown. Here is what changed my mind. I suddenly realized that I was actually trying to protect that worry from the miracle.

It was as if I was telling the Holy Spirit not to touch that worry thought. As if it was proof of my love for my son, maybe. Looking at it directly with the Holy Spirit and letting the feelings come up was what helped me change my mind. It was the way I was able to see what I was doing and how foolish that was. Then I could let that belief go and the light replaced the darkness.

3. On the hour:
²Miracles are seen in light.

³On the half hour:
Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.

It would be a good idea to go back over the detailed instructions for the study of these review lessons given in the Introduction.
