Lesson 240: “What is salvation?” “Fear is not justified in any form.”
The Course reminds us there are no small upsets.
Everything that is a form of anxiety disturbs our minds.
We have the chance to make our life experience a wonderful and peaceful one or we can create one that is one with ceaseless emotional turbulence.
Even the smallest piece of energetic intrusion is a ripple in the ocean of our placid mind
Even the most minuscule speck of unsettling news all affects us acutely and unfavorably if we let it go unchecked.
We must realize that our experience is something that occurs when we think in a certain way.
The Course teaches us to become aware of what our thinking does to impact the level of peace and happiness we feel. And it also gives us instruction about how necessary it is to watch our minds and catch these disruptions in our peace.
We learn to do a little bit every day. We must be vigilant in the process.
We must first become aware of the thought; this is imperative in the process.
However, from there, we also need to realize that it is our calling to choose again.
