I am blessed as a Son of God

Today we will begin to assert some of the happy things to which you are entitled, being what you are. No long practice periods are required today, but very frequent short ones are necessary. Once every ten minutes would be highly desirable, and you are urged to attempt this schedule and to adhere to it whenever possible. If you forget, try again. If there are long interruptions, try again. Whenever you remember, try again.

This is really the beauty of A Course In Miracles: every moment is brand new. Time is not sequential in reality and there is only this moment, right here and now, where you can let all things be revealed to you anew. Jesus is so incredible in this lesson, He tells you that if you forget, try again. If you fail, try again. Your previous experience is never held against you. Never. An awakened mind only stands in the right here and right now, because it is really the only time there is. The past is over, the future not yet, so all that matters is this moment. What do you choose to do this moment?

You need not close your eyes for the exercise periods, although you will probably find it more helpful if you do.  However, you may be in a number of situations during the day when closing your eyes would not be feasible. Do not miss a practice period because of this. You can practice quite well under any circumstances, if you really want to.

There really is no room for escape in this lesson, no excuse for anything. If you forget, try again. If you can’t close your eyes during the practice period, keep them open. Just remember the lesson. Practice it every 10 minutes.

I am blessed as a Son of God
I am happy, peaceful, loving and contented.

I am blessed as a Son of God
I am calm, quiet, assured and confident.

What you ultimately have to recognize is that the experience that you are having is the one that you have chosen.  You can today choose the experience that you are blessed as a Son of God. You can choose to experience the peace of God, the love of God. You can stand in the certainty that the world you perceive is the direct result of  what you think. There is no without, it all happens within. Repeat the lesson for today and all worries disappear, all confusion evaporates in the nothingness that it is. Every moment you choose between hell or heaven, the ego or God, you are never helpless. The power of your mind is what salvation is and today you remember your true Identity.

I am blessed as a Son of God.
