I am the light of the world

ACIM Lesson 81

Lesson 81

Our ideas for review today are:

1. (61) I am the light of the world.

²How holy am I, who have been given the function of lighting up the world! ³Let me be still before my holiness. ⁴In its calm light let all my conflicts disappear. ⁵In its peace let me remember Who I am.

2. Some specific forms for applying this idea when special difficulties seem to arise might be:

²Let me not obscure the light of the world in me.
³Let the light of the world shine through this appearance.
⁴This shadow will vanish before the light.

First, let me say that I re-read the instructions from the introduction. They are specific and also inspiring. I wanted to be sure that I get the most from these reviews as I can. I wished my friend Linda O’Connell a happy birthday this morning and she said that it was a happy day because she decided it was. I’m taking my inspiration from her. Today is the day I want it to be. It is a happy day as I allow the light I am to shine through me onto the world. It was a lovely meditative experience as I let my holiness lead the way.

3. (62) Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.

²It is through accepting my function that I will see the light in me. ³And in this light will my function stand clear and perfectly unambiguous before my sight. ⁴My acceptance does not depend on my recognizing what my function is, for I do not yet understand forgiveness. ⁵Yet I will trust that, in the light, I will see it as it is.

4. Specific forms for using this idea might include:

²Let this help me learn what forgiveness means.
³Let me not separate my function from my will.
⁴I will not use this for an alien purpose.

The World Needs Our Light

I’ve noticed that ego thoughts can be very persistent even as I practice forgiveness. So, I’ve learned to not be concerned about that. I just keep forgiving and releasing and the mind clears a bit and a bit more. Peace descends and I feel so tranquil and happy. When I am forgiving, I don’t settle for a neutral feeling. I know that I am not done unless I feel love for the person or the situation.

So, I patiently forgive until that is done however long it takes. A few minutes or a few days or a few years. This is my function and the world needs my light. I used to get impatient and discouraged if I didn’t succeed quickly. But now I’m ok however it unfolds. I forgive anything that is in my awareness whether it feels like mine or not. We are all aspects of the Oneness and so everything is mine to forgive. It could feel like a chore, or it can be a joyful function to fulfill. It is up to me.
