ACIM Lesson 216

Lesson 216: Review: “I am not a body.  I am free.   For I am still as God created me.”  “It can be but myself I crucify.”

Lesson 186 says, “Such is a form of madness you believe, if you accept the fearful thought you can attack another and be free yourself.” 

The ego’s interpretation is that someone has to be attacked. 

It has to be them or us or both.

The ego never gives us the option of not attacking. 

Attack is the ego’s weapon of choice and always engages in it no matter how we may want to do otherwise. 

The Course reminds us that we are all joined energetically and what we feel another feels or what another feels, we feel at some level, even if it is not conscious. 

We are reminded how we are all interconnected and feel each other.  This means we all have a responsibility to each other and others have toward ourselves.

The ego definitely believes that we are isolated.

The ego thinks what we feel is just our little detached iceberg. 

The ego thinks that attacking others is always justified.

Others automatically have screwed up and the ego is first to be judge, jury and executioner. 

The ego is totally delusional, thinking we can escape the attack ourselves when we feel it. 

The problem and the reality is that it goes right through us. 

There is no way around this.

That is why we have to be perfectly clear to the ego that we have to eliminate the attack thoughts toward other people so we are not the ones suffering over them as well.
