ACIM Lesson 43: God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.

God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.

Because my mind is part of God’s, it would make sense that I cannot see apart from Him.

Today’s Lesson gives further weight to the fact that, as a great sage once said, “I and the Father are One.”

Today it’s my mission to move from my perception of the world to what it truly is. I ask that my perception be healed in order that “… the Son of God forgives his brother, and thus forgives himself.”

Forgiveness is what Ho’oponopono is all about. I am trying to ‘make right’. I want to see with Divine Inspiration, not the data that seeks to make me forget who I am, who my Source is, where my Strength lies.

The Course puts forward a number of ways that today’s idea can be used. For example, I can look about me and to each item I see I can say:

“God is my Source. I cannot see this table apart from Him.”

I can repeat the idea and then see what relevant thoughts come to mind, thoughts such as:

“I can see through the eyes of forgiveness.”

But perhaps most interesting is to use the idea when I meet people I know or pass strangers in the street. In both instances I can silently say to the other:

“God is my Source. I cannot see you apart from Him.”

And should a troubling situation arise I can similarly bless it by reminding myself:

“God is my Source. I cannot see this apart from Him.”

As usual, in each case, I can repeat the key phrases of Ho’oponopono after each application of the idea because I want to literally clean my perception of the people and events that are part of my life. I will silently tell each one:

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

This is a powerful Lesson. And I will remember that if I cannot see apart from Him, neither can the other person. We are both one with God, our Source. To judge another, to see him as separate from me, is to judge God and I’d rather not do that!

Here’s to having my perception gently healed.

“God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you.”
