ACIM Lesson 352

Lesson 352: “What am I?”  “Judgement and Love are opposites. From one come all the sorrows of the world.  But from the other comes the peace of God Himself.”

The “What am I?” section says, “I am God’s Son, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love…  In me is love perfected, fear impossible, and joy established without opposite.” 

The Course has the opinion of us that is often much higher than we are used to having in the ego’s perception. 

We are learning to accept it and catch up when we can with integrating this great news that we are as extraordinary as Love perfected. 

The ego’s opinion of us is shabby at best.  The ego never reaches for anything as lofty as describing us as Love perfected.  We just have to get used to being better than we thought we were.

This opinion of us as little and inconsequential, and sinful is very common for us because we generally tell this to ourselves all the time. 

The whole purpose of the message of the Course is to change our opinion of ourselves.

We just need to surrender those old crazy ideas that we are unworthy.

This idea that we are love perfected is quite a statement.

The most important point of the Course is to get us to learn to accept this amazing truth as ourselves.

We must release that old thought that we deserve less than all the love of God and love of all beings around us, and all of God’s abundance and favor in the world because we deserve it.

We are asked to just allow God’s vision to be our correct vision. 

The Course’s description of all of us is always startling to me because it is really different than what I learned growing up.

Just appreciate that changing our minds about our opinion of ourselves to something as lofty as the Course teaches is sometimes quite a process, because we generally have our egos in the background, speaking in our minds, resisting like crazy. 

We will come up with all kinds of blocks when we are trying to get to that place of grateful serenity, giving our minds to God for correction. 

Just know that this is the seriously most regular thing the ego does and the ego is so good at standing in our way to numb us out to leaning the real truth as God tells us here. 

Just remember to forgive ourselves when we make a thousand roadblocks. 

We just need to be willing to lightly dance ourselves right back to God’s resting place where we can relax in comfort in the process when we get stuck. 

Just get up and move again as soon as we can, and have that inner trust that all we are doing to heal ourselves is enough.
