Lesson 291 This Is A Day Of Stillness And Of Peace

PART II.  SECTION 8.  What is the Real World?

Lesson 291 This Is A Day Of Stillness And Peace.

  1. Christ’s vision looks through me today.  His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace and offers this same vision to the world.  And I accept this vision in its name, both for myself and for the world as well.  What loveliness we look upon today!  What holiness we see surrounding us!  And it is given us to recognize it is a holiness in which we share; it is the Holiness of God Himself.
  2. This day my mind is quiet, to receive the Thoughts You offer me.  And I accept what comes from You, instead of from myself.  I do not know the way to You.  But You are wholly certain.  Father guide Your Son along the quiet path that leads to You.  Let my forgiveness be complete and let the memory of You return to me.[1]

Today I seek the vision of Christ.  To accept the vision of the forgiven and peaceful world – for myself and for the world, is my prayer and my goal.  I look upon loveliness today!  I see holiness surrounding us!  Our holiness is the Holiness of God Himself. 

Quiet my mind, Holy Spirit, to receive the Thoughts of God that You offer me.  I accept what comes from You instead of myself.  While I generate thoughts of attack and defense, You generate thoughts of love and forgiveness and forgetfulness.  I want to do things Your way.  I do not know the way to God.  Father I ask you to guide me along the quiet path that leads to You.  Let my forgiveness be complete, that the memory of You return to me. In Jesus name.  Amen.

About the Author

Posted by

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
