ACIM Lesson 113

Lesson 113

For morning and evening review:

1. (95) I am one Self, united with my Creator.

²Serenity and perfect peace are mine, because I am one Self, completely whole, at one with all creation and with God.

This lesson makes so much sense. Because we are one Self, we are serene. There is a reason we are not aware of peace and serenity. It is because we are caught in a dream of separation. When there are two, there is competition and thus conflict.

Faith in Specialness

All that is ever cherished as a hidden belief, to be defended though unrecognized, is faith in specialness. ²This takes many forms, but always clashes with the reality of God’s creation and with the grandeur that He gave His Son. ³What else could justify attack? ⁴For who could hate someone whose Self is his, and Whom he knows? ⁵Only the special could have enemies, for they are different and not the same. ⁶And difference of any kind imposes orders of reality, and a need to judge that cannot be escaped. (ACIM, T-24.I.3:1-6)

What comes of this is war in some form. As it happens, I am at war with my neighbor. My neighbor wants to cut down a tree that straddles our property line. I am not fighting him on this because I understand why he wants to do so. But in my heart, I hope he doesn’t follow through. Every time I sit under that tree, I wonder if this is the last time I can enjoy its shade. I wonder if today is the day he will have the tree removed, and I feel resentful. Even though there will never be an escalation of this little war in my mind, when I think of my neighbor I am not at peace.

2. (96) Salvation comes from my one Self.

²From my one Self, Whose knowledge still remains within my mind, I see God’s perfect plan for my salvation perfectly fulfilled.

As long as I choose to dream of separation, I will always be in conflict and will never know unbroken peace. But there is a solution. God has a perfect plan for my salvation and my true Self knows that plan. It is in my mind and so I can be aware of it. Each person has this blueprint and while mine might look different than someone else’s, they all lead us back to God.

My version of the plan, and yours too since you are reading this, is based on A Course in Miracles. Since we are dreaming of separation, we are being taught how to awaken from that dream. We got here through our thoughts of fear and guilt and we are learning to release these thoughts. When the mind is free from the belief in separation and the desire for specialness, we will awaken from the dream. We will know our Self as what we are. We will know ourself as One and in perfect undisturbed peace for eternity.

3. On the hour:

³On the half hour:
Salvation comes from my one Self.
