Lesson 175 2021

Lesson 175 

God is but Love, and therefore so am I. 

1. (159) I give the miracles I have received. 

²God is but Love, and therefore so am I. 

2. (160) I am at home. ²Fear is the stranger here. 

³God is but Love, and therefore so am I. 

(ACIM, W-175.1:1–2:3

The miracle I want is Christ Vision. I want to see everything through Christ. If I react with anything less than unconditional love, I am seeing through the ego and I ask for another way to see. I receive that miracle, and then I give it. I give it through looking without judgment and seeing the Light of God that exists in all living things. Giving it is how I know I have it and giving it ignites the spark of truth in the mind of the receiver. 

The more often I give and receive this miracle, the less fear there is in the mind. What happens eventually after asking for this miracle and giving it as I receive it, is that I know who I am and I know who my brother is. I know that, like God, we are Love and only Love. We are still as God created us. Nothing seen in the world can change the Will of God and we are God’s Will. 

Because the world feels so real to us, it requires great vigilance and consistent practice to shift out of that belief and constant reminders of the truth to remain in the truth. I wake up each morning to thoughts of the body and I begin right away to remind myself that the body and the world as it appears to exist is an illusion.  

I remind myself that the body is not me and that I am not in it, that it could not contain me. I am not this Myron character, rather I am observing this ancient story of Myron. My job today is to experience her thoughts and reactions and to decide what it is that I want to believe and what beliefs I will release to the Holy Spirit on behalf of the Sonship.  

That is the only connection I have with this body of Myron and her story. This is the way I protect my mind from slipping back into the story as if it is real and really happening to me. This is the way I keep myself from believing in the fear that is the ego’s natural state. The goal is to know that God is but Love, and so am I, and to keep that knowing foremost in my mind.
