ACIM Lesson 310 In fearlessness and love I spend today.
³We are restored to peace and holiness. ⁴There is no room in us for fear today, for we have welcomed love into our hearts.
In fearlessness and love I spend today.
1. This day, my Father, would I spend with You, as You have chosen all my days should be. ²And what I will experience is not of time at all. ³The joy that comes to me is not of days nor hours, for it comes from Heaven to Your Son. ⁴This day will be Your sweet reminder to remember You, Your gracious calling to Your holy Son, the sign Your grace has come to me, and that it is Your Will I be set free today.
2. We spend this day together, you and I. ²And all the world joins with us in our song of thankfulness and joy to Him Who gave salvation to us, and Who set us free. ³We are restored to peace and holiness. ⁴There is no room in us for fear today, for we have welcomed love into our hearts.
The Belief in “Not Enough Sleep”
I didn’t sleep well last night so it occurred to me this morning that I may not be on top of my game. But the Holy Spirit has been teaching me that I don’t know what is in my best interests and that He does know. So I let that belief in ‘not enough sleep’ go. I forgave it and it disappeared from my mind and as a result, the effects of that belief disappeared as well. Today has been a lovely day.
Where Do I Want to Place My Attention
The only thing I need to do to experience a wonderful day is to turn my attention from the split mind. As a consequence, I begin to perceive it from the part of the mind in which the Holy Spirit abides. This must be so since there are just these two options from which to choose. In making this choice, the Holy Spirit interprets everyone and all events for me. His interpretation is always in favor of our Self rather than our self. It is always an expression of Love.
From Lesson 34
Do you remember Lesson 34? It says that I could see peace instead of this. ²Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. ³It must begin with your own thoughts, and then extend outward. ⁴It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises. (ACIM, W-34.1:2-4)
A Peaceful Day Is a Reflection of a Peaceful Mind
This is why I could so easily turn my day around this morning. I know that a peaceful day is a reflection of a peaceful mind. When I had the thought that I didn’t get enough sleep, I felt concern and so was not peaceful. I then remembered that there is another way of looking at that idea. I decided could replace this feeling of worry over lost sleep with peace. So, I made that choice. It is these simple reminders and different choices that guarantee I spend the day with my Father. I invite you to do the same.
