Lesson 142 2021

Lesson 142

My mind holds only what I think with God.

(123) I thank my Father for His gifts to me.

(124) Let me remember I am one with God.

(ACIM, W-142)

Every time I have the thought that I am one with God, I feel like I am floating a little above the chair I am sitting in or the floor I am walking on. Or at least that I should be floating. How can I be in this body when I am one with God? Clearly, I cannot. There is no connection between me and this body we all think of as Myron, except the connection I give it with my beliefs.

Something else that comes into my mind with today’s lesson is a feeling of deep love for my Father and His love for me. It is like being wrapped in a warm blanket or like sitting with someone who loves you so much. I just feel the love flowing through me almost as if it is a physical sensation.

I am aware of some senseless ideas in my mind, thoughts I think I am thinking, but they are as nothing compared with the realization that I am one with God and that my mind holds only what I think with God. My daughter could use my help today and knowing this is like having an itch I can’t scratch. The ego thought is that I wish the itch would go away.

But then there is the Love that is in my mind, the thought I think with God, and that Thought doesn’t seem to have an opinion about this. It just wants to extend Itself in whatever way it can. Before the Thought of Love, the thought of inconvenience fades away into nothing. That Thought of Love is a gift from my Father and I am grateful.
