ACIM Workbook lesson 145

The following statements are given for review:

My mind holds only what I think with God.

(129) “Beyond this world there is a world I want.”

(130) “It is impossible to see two worlds.”

You tend to think that your mind holds all kinds of thoughts and feelings, because when you look within you can see the monkey thoughts passing by and jumping up and down, distracting you. In addition, you sense all kinds of feelings that those flitting thoughts seem to cause you to experience. They are like clouds and shadows of clouds. By your focus on them you allow yourself to be drawn into their play and before you know it, you have completely forgotten about the sun, where it is, what it is about and how to find it.

Your mind’s focus determines what you experience. As an intrinsic part of creation mind is ideally suited to receive a creative impulse and bring it to expression. As an intrinsic part of creation you are ideally suited to allow your mind to do just that and allow yourself to be part of the expressing. The mind receives and holds creative impulse, and through you, the channel, allows it to manifest.

Clouds and shadows have no power whatsoever to interfere with or disturb this process. However, in your experience they may seem to do so, but it seems that way only to the extent that you are allowing the focus of your mind to drift and attach to them. It is entirely up to your choice of focus.
