Lesson 111 2021

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 had to cry today and I don’t know why. It came and went but I wonder what it is all about. I cannot see in darkness and so I cannot ask my ego what this was all about because the ego is the darkness. If I want to be enlightened, it makes no sense to look to the dark for light. So, my prayer is that the light of holiness and truth light up my mind and show me the innocence within. 

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. 

When I ask for the help of the ego, it can only point its bony finger at someone else or something else. Someone is not giving me what I think I need. Something in the world is depriving me of my happiness. And the darkness seems to thicken all around me and I feel weak and vulnerable. But when I turn to the Holy Spirit in my mind and ask for healing, I receive a real answer, one that enlightens me and I feel the strength of God that is my strength as well.  

I feel safe and I feel certain. I open my mind to whatever He knows I need to see and I welcome it into my life for the gift it offers me. Then I release it to Him and I am free. This is a miracle. Today, I have no idea why the tears came. A release, I think, a washing away of some untrue thoughts, maybe. But the answer, the miracle, is my happy heart. 

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

³On the half hour:
⁴Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.
