“Man’s chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness.”-Neville Goddard
NASA Astronauts take an oath. They commit to their spaceship no matter what the weather, no matter how far off it goes.
That’s what ACIM Lesson 138 asks us to do. To commit to love. No matter what the weather. No matter how far off appearances go.
We can either buy into the world and its endless list of choices. Or we can trust in the one decision that takes our spaceship home. We can trust in love, love that ensures we are wholly loved, wholly lovable and wholly loving.
Wholly, by the way, means 100 percent. No exceptions.
Everything else (our bodies, our woes, our countless decisions and plans) is a virus in our consciousness.
Long ago, our brains established a false sense of perception. Our brain’s left cerebral hemisphere, where the faulty interpretations and major fabrications started, plucks out a story and creates an image to match. This false perception judges, distorts and causes unnecessary emotional distress.
Suffice it to say, this spin doctor in the brain is not our best resource.
I realize it is EXTREMELY difficult to believe that news events, our bodies, our beliefs are made up. They seem so real.
But in this lesson, we commit to reach for a higher truth. We commit to love no matter what. We commit to guide our spaceship—no matter what the weather, no matter what the appearances, no matter what our brains are telling us.
Until we do, we will continue to question our purpose and wonder why we’re here.
Choosing love is not difficult. It’s just very, very different than the way we were taught.
