This speaks volumes right here as we begin this section. The holy instant is the SHINING example. It leads us to the light. It shows us the light. It is the light. We are only asked to allow truth to be what it is and only that. Nothing more is required.
When I think about the holy instant, I know I want it to be an ongoing instant. Who doesn’t? Isn’t it better to live in the light than merely tolerate the darkness? I have seen both worlds in my life. I know the dark night of the soul as I have relived it over and over again. Yet my study and practice of ACIM is what keeps my eye on the prize. That is, the light of who I am.
When I look at the multitude of changes I have encountered in my life, many times early on I approached these with great fear and worry, even intense anxiety. But as the years have rolled by and changes still appear, I now approach them with a sense of wonder. I wonder what this opportunity will bring me. What can I learn? What belief will now fall away from my psyche so I can truly accept peace in my life?
I like to question and wonder. It’s open ended. I don’t question God though. I know that He is true. But I do question my thoughts if they do not bring me peace. Even now in a project I am currently working on, what will it bring me? What new ideas? What can I learn about myself in this?
Are you open to learning too?
