“The ego is trying to teach you how to gain the whole world and lose your soul. The Holy Spirit teaches that you cannot lose your soul and there is no gain in the world, for of itself it profits nothing.”

Where do I place my investment? If I invest in what the ego tells me that is to be attached to everything of this world, to seek after praise and prestige, money, relationships, adoration and the like, then I am lost. Not that any of these are not a fulfilling experience, however, if left to the ego’s devices then they are a hollow experience. To give everything to the Holy Spirit means to let go of my attachment to it all. Love will come when I stop trying to hold on so tightly to it.

The Holy Spirit is my strength. He only sees the truth in me. He sees that I have everything I could possibly want, and that is God’s Love and Peace. God’s Love and Peace is what He wants to teach and share with me. In this I am abundant.

“You do not want the world. The only thing of value in it is whatever part of it you look upon with love.”

Some still look for value in the world, in their education, their titles, their number of friends on Facebook, and other poor demonstrations of how much they are “loved.” This is not love. When we seek outside of ourselves for validation it is because we will hollow and alone. When we have Spirit’s strength we know we are not alone and we know we do not need outside validation.

Holy Spirit is here to correct our vision. We have been blinded to what the truth is, we all have, I have. The truth is I need nothing of this world to satisfy me, to protect me and to keep me safe. I do not need others in the world to pat me on the back and tell me I’m okay.

In His eyes I am perfect. Let me see through Your Eyes today Holy Spirit and see everyone the same. We are one and it is time to arise from our slumber and into the Light of Truth.

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.
