Lesson 87 2021

Lesson 87

Our review today will cover these ideas:

W-pI.87.1. (73) I will there be light.

2 I will use the power of my will today. 3 It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. 4 Light shall be my guide today. 5 I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me. 6 This day I will experience the peace of true perception.

W-pI.87.2. These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific applications:

2 This cannot hide the light I will to see.
3 You stand with me in light, [name].
4 In the light this will look different.

My Thoughts

Everything is going well today. I prepared the ceremony for the memorial service and I am happy with it. I put everything necessary for the memorial service in my car so I would be sure that I wouldn’t leave anything, my notes, my robe and stole, and other things. I took care of my call and my zoom meeting. Now I am working on the lesson. When I am done, I am going to place the phone mount I just bought so that I can use my phone as a GPS hands free and I am having trouble figuring it out.

What I noticed this morning is that I was feeling a little anxious about getting everything in order so I wouldn’t leave too late for the long drive. I am especially concerned that I am having so much trouble with this mount. I stopped what I was doing and I used today’s lesson to bring me back to peace. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. I feel anxious now, but in the light this will look different. I relaxed into that promise and let it fill me with peace.

W-pI.87.3. (74) There is no will but God’s.

2 I am safe today because there is no will but God’s. 3 I can become afraid only when I believe there is another will. 4 I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. 5 Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. 6 I am safe because there is no will but God’s.

W-pI.87.4. These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications:

2 Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God.
3 It is God’s Will you are His Son, [name], and mine as well.
4 This is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it.

My Thoughts

When I became momentarily anxious this morning, it was because I had asked the ego to interpret these events. I know that I asked the ego because when I ask the ego, I get very poor advice that leaves me feeling upset. When I ask the Holy Spirit, I am at peace and I am happy. There is really only the Will of God, and any other will is an illusion. Since there is only the Will of God, that must be my will as well. I am not asking for some foreign will to take over my mind; I am only asking that I become aware of my true will. When I ask to perceive this situation in accordance with the Will of God, I am asking for a return to sanity.
