Never forget there’s an off button on the remote

“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.

  1. I was reminded of this last night when my husband and I had an argument over something really insignificant. I had to keep turning my mind back to love and letting go of what my ego said was important. Thanks for this post that reiterates that thought.

  2. I look forward to the day that choosing love in the face of the illusion is easy. Awareness is the first step. The more who are aware, the easier it will become. Thanks, Pam.

  3. “We can trust in love, love that ensures we are wholly loved, wholly lovable and wholly loving”. YES. I was Remembering this yesterday afternoon as I was walking my dogs. Play, dance, laugh, and trust…trusting love. That’s the reason I am here. Thank you for the wonderful words again, Pam Grout.

  4. “Committing to love no matter what” is the endless challenge in life isn’t it. I love the idea that everything else apart from love is a VIRUS in my consciousness! Ha! That’s an hilarious way of expressing it, and for me it takes some of the heaviness out of the judgments I place on myself for all the things in my life I think aren’t good enough. Love is all there is. The only thing that’s real. Thankyou for this excellent reminder which I will enjoy re-reading several times today 😊🌷

  5. Lesson 138 was a long read and not all that clear but you rephrased it in a more clear way. I had become a bit lazy and not read the actual lesson before reading it here and know better now. 136 & 137 really hit home and I had to sit with those for a while. Wow! With this one, I have no problem feeling love for the whole world. It’s myself that come up a little short on from prior conditioning. Time to change that one. Thanks for using understandable language here.
