ACIM Lesson 25: I do not know what anything is for.

I do not know what anything is for.

Wow, today’s Lesson is a ‘biggie’, particularly with regard to business.

The crux of the idea is that things are meaningless to me because I don’t know what anything is for. ACIM does however tell me what things are for:

They are for my own best interests.

Issues arise because I don’t really know what my own best interests are.

Of course, I think I know!

I have goals and ideas about the kind of things and situations I would like to attract into my life. Can you relate?

But the problem is this: goals are of the ego.

Remember, of the millions and millions of bits of information surrounding me every second I’m only consciously aware of about 40. The ego puts its entire trust in the 40 and thinks it’s got the whole picture!

Crazy, right?

And ACIM confirms that the ego is not me, which means that these ‘goals’ are not in my best interest. They cannot be.

In Ho’oponopono the ego doesn’t actually exist, that what we sometimes refer to as the ego is merely memories and data replaying in the subconscious. This is bad news!

My goals, then, no matter how personal they may feel, are nothing to do with my personal interests at all.

ACIM tells me that:

“It is crucial to your learning to be willing to give up the goals you have established for everything. The recognition that they are meaningless, rather than ‘good’ or ‘bad’, is the only way to accomplish this.”

Today I will look about me and add my gaze rests upon each object, whether animate or inanimate, I will say to it:

I do not know what this [table] is for.

… and repeat to it the key words of Ho’oponopono:

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. I’m grateful.

… and then move on to the next object.

“I do not know what anything is for. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, I’m grateful.”
