ACIM Lesson 190: I choose the joy of God instead of pain.

If you think about it, how could pain be real in any form?

What use would God have for it? If He is unconditional and eternal joy and love, what part would pain play in the Divine Plan?

Pain doesn’t exist because God doesn’t understand it. It’s not part of the plan.

To acknowledge pain and think it real is a sure sign that illusions – the memories replaying – are in charge.

I will remember an earlier Lesson: I am Spirit. And Spirit cannot be harmed in any way because God created it and He cannot be harmed.

But sometimes the data convinces me that pain is real. And I forget to realise that the pain is purely in my mind! I am hurting myself! For no reason!

Definitely time to clean… 😉

So, today I will definitely choose joy as I repeat the key words of Ho’oponopono:

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

… and ‘… put aside the withering assaults with which you seek to hide your holiness.’

Be yourself today. Be joy!

“I choose the joy of God instead of pain. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you.”
