ACIM Workbook Lesson 346 – for Monday, December 12, 2011
Affirmation: “Today the peace of God envelops me,
And I forget all things except His Love.”
“. . .I would find the peace which You created for Your Son, forgetting all the foolish toys I made as I behold Your glory and my own. (WB476)”
1 – A Reality Check
This passage is a reality check. What is really important to us? If we say the “peace of God,” then we will forget those “foolish toys” that the ego inspired us to cherish (and probably to spend our hard-earned cash on, if they are material things).
2 – The Felt Presence of God
We are at peace when we are feeling the presence of God. When we are still and quiet, that peace envelops us. And we do not hanker for things beyond our sphere.
3 – Commune with God
Spend time today in communion with God. He will not fail us. And that communion will bring happier days, beginning immediately and going full force into the future.
Today I would see as a quiet day. I would not make waves. I would know peace. And this will be the day that You give me if I commune with You on a continual basis. I would pray often today. Guide me throughout this day.
May this quietness enfold me and give me peace without anxiety. I would not ask for a solace that I would not extend to others. May my peace enfold the brothers and sisters whom I meet along my walk today.
