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 ego thoughts passing by and jumping up and down, tempting you to follow them. 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 continued focus on them you allow yourself to be drawn into their play and before you know it, you will have completely forgotten about the sun, where it is, what it is about and how to allow it to shine on you.

Your mind’s focus determines what you experience.

As an intrinsic part of Creation, the mind is ideally suited to receive creative impulse and extend it. 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 extending. The mind receives and holds creative impulse, and through you, the channel, brings it to the world.

Clouds and shadows have no power whatsoever to interfere with or disturb this process. However, in your experience they may seem to do so. It seems that way only to the extent that you are allowing the focus of your mind to drift and attach to these clouds and shadows. It is entirely up to you to choose again and redirect your focus. You will experience one or the other – cloudiness or sunshine, the darkness or the Light – never mixed together.
