LESSON 24

I do not perceive my own best interests.

In the world of multiples, there are multiple problems with multiple solutions to achieve multiple possible outcomes to want.

If Oneness is true, there can only be one thing to “want”. Oneness is sometimes a mystery in this regard. When the idea of Oneness is applied to wanting, you are like a child that wants to eat One whole birthday cake at our birthday party because you think this will make that One day a great day.

You think you know what will make you happy, yet you don’t even know what you are. The world of multiples taught you that you are one among many. This is all you know about what you are.

    Hi Ken…
    As a student struggling with ACIM, if I get stuck on a lesson, totally not understanding, should I go to the next or have a conversation/dialogue with you at the next class to help me along? The lessons are getting harder and in spite of my resolution to keep up I am behind already and Feb has not even arrived.

    • Great question Marjorie (In the Murk)!

      First of all, feel free to quiz me about any of the lessons you might find that you don’t understand. You can leave a note on the blog (like this), email or just wait for our meeting. Keep going.

      Second, there are many reasons that you might choose to repeat a given lesson on the next day, but I find that one of the least valuable reasons is that you found the lesson hard or obscure. In other words, it is quite normal to struggle with a lesson from time to time. Your struggle is not an indication that the lesson was of no value. Keep going.

      Lastly, keep in mind the introduction of the workbook:

      “W-in.8. Some of the ideas the workbook presents you will find hard to believe, and others may seem to be quite startling. 2 This does not matter. 3 You are merely asked to apply the ideas as you are directed to do. 4 You are not asked to judge them at all. 5 You are asked only to use them. 6 It is their use that will give them meaning to you, and will show you that they are true.

      W-in.9. Remember only this; you need not believe the ideas, you need not accept them, and you need not even welcome them. 2 Some of them you may actively resist. 3 None of this will matter, or decrease their efficacy. 4 But do not allow yourself to make exceptions in applying the ideas the workbook contains, and whatever your reactions to the ideas may be, use them. 5 Nothing more than that is required.”

      Keep going. Perfection in this is not needed.

      Loving thoughts;
      Ken
