ACIM Workbook lesson 80

Let me recognize my problems have been solved.

This statement is a continuation of yesterday’s statement “Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.” Looking at its individual elements we get the following:

“Let me” indicates a decision and a willingness to change course. To “recognize” means to see, know, acknowledge, and accept a certain fact. Even more than that, it means to acknowledge and accept a new basis of understanding. On the basis of yesterday’s statement, it may be clear that the term “my problems” no longer applies, for there is only one problem: the sense of separation caused by a faulty sense of self, a sense of self that is fed and perpetuated by the images the monkey mind conjures up on the basis of that faulty concept.

Lastly, the word “solved” indicates that your troubles are gone. All the things that seemed to be bothering you have dissolved in the light that is your presence. You have entered this experience in order to shine your light, or put differently, to be the channel through which the light might shine. You have not come here to zoom in on perceived mistakes and errors or to correct any so called injustices. They are all images projected by a mind that is shackled by faulty notions about what it is and who you are.

Combining it all we get: I have changed course, because I understand that I am light and it is my function to allow that light to shine.
