Chapter 4, Introduction

If you speak from spirit you have chosen to “Be still and know that I am God.”

Do not embark on useless journeys, because they are indeed in vain.

The only message of the crucifixion is that you can overcome the cross.

Such striking words in the phrase “Be still and know that I am God.” In my stillness and quiet of my mind is how I come to know Him and what I am to Him. With thoughts chattering away, all thought of the world with lists and memories, I further engage the separation. Those thoughts are a wall dividing my mind from the clarity of truth.

I chose this journey but I can yet choose another way to go. I can overcome all that I provided for myself here and allow God to provide for me which is really knowing that I am in need of nothing at all.

Jesus has shown me that destruction in any form is not warranted. He led the way, why repeat unnecessary maneuvers when freedom is mine right now?

Yes, be still, be very still and listen and know and be at peace.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
