ACIM Workbook Lesson 350 – for Friday, December 16, 2011
“What we forgive becomes a part of us, as we perceive ourselves. The Son of God incorporates all things within himself as You created him. Your memory depends on his forgiveness. What he is, is unaffected by his thoughts. But what he looks upon is their direct result. (WB478)”
1 – Miracles in This World
We would “save the world,” and the way that we can do this is through miracles. We do not, as we have noted many times in this blog, choose which miracles to perform. Jesus guides us in this decision. And no miracle will be unaccepted forever. If it does not seem to have effects now, we need only wait, and the results will become evident. Time does not have any meaning, for only eternity exists. When we remember God, we do save the world.
2 – Projection Makes Perception
Our thoughts determine what we will see with our body’s eyes. And this the truth of projection making perception. We are not determine by our thoughts, for we have not changed in essence. But what we see is so determined, and if we would see aright, we need to think aright.
3 – At Home in God
These final lessons are guidance in how to worship rightly (an interpretation, not stated in ACIM). Words become unnecessary, as we are at home in God.
May the miracles that You would have us perform arise easily and peacefully before our eyes. May we not arrogantly choose what miracles we will perform, but let ourselves be guided, sometimes almost imperceptibly. May we do Your will in this world.
I would, in these final weeks of the year that we have spent together, be reassured that the end of the Workbook is not an end to our communion. Nor is it the reassurance that we have learned all that we need to know. We await Your word on when our learning is at an end. In the meantime, may we be patient students, eager and willing to learn Your way. And may we help our brothers and sisters as we continue to learn.
