ACIM Lesson 10

My thoughts do not mean anything.

This Lesson is a furthering of Lesson 4. We have now moved from ‘these’ thoughts to ‘my’ thoughts.

Once again I will remember: my thoughts are coloured and obscured by the data I hold about them. Therefore I do not really see at all and my thoughts truly do not mean anything.

There is so much going on of which I am not aware, how could I have an accurate thought?

Even my Ego, which tells me I am ‘thinking’ is itself a collection of memories and data and therefore, in ultimate reality, doesn’t exist either!

There will be more on the Ego in later Lessons, but for now, I will view any thoughts that cross my mind – whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – as though they were nothing more than a procession passing by in front of me and nothing to do with me at all. Just random third parties whom I do not know and will never see again. I will treat them with the detachment I would to a stranger I had randomly walked past in the street.

And to each thought I will say:

“This thought about __________ does not mean anything.”

And then, with complete neutrality towards it, I will repeat once again the key words of Ho’oponopono:

I love you

I’m sorry

Please Forgive Me

Thank You

In this way, I can be free and the thought can be free too. Divinity can transmute it to void. I am then available for Inspiration to show up and remember that, as ACIM tells me:

“This idea will help to release me from all that I now believe.”

And, importantly, the cleaning will help to release me from all that I now believe. Win-win!
