This Need Not Be

This need not Be ACIM

One of the beautiful things I love about  A Course in Miracles(ACIM) is its simplicity. The Course talks about the power of our mind, and how much we misuse its power especially by 

 1. not forgiving, especially ourselves and

 2.judging others. 

From the actions of non forgiveness and judging we project our guilt onto others and we also punish ourselves through the choices we make.  Guilt demands punishment and so we make choices where we punish ourselves.

The Course says simply - this need not be. 

Start simply by saying that to yourself in a moment where you have made a choice which leaves you with no peace. 

When you are constantly sad, know that - This need not be 

When you are  constantly anxious and afraid know that - This need not be

When you  constantly feel guilty know that - This need not be

A simple statement, said with belief starts a shift

This need not be

Give it a go

Peace
