ACIM Lesson 190 notes.

I choose the joy of God instead of pain.


“Pain is illusion; joy, reality.”

I was grumpy yesterday afternoon, this after writing of the Love of God within me. I wasn’t very loving. I wanted things my way, saw it, and still could not choose to behave kinder.

Oh joy, where are you? The other gifts of Love I can open to receive. Joy is different.

I have a block to joy – I make this declaration so this can change.

(I am guided to the ‘Body Code’ energy healing method that I’ve been hiding from for several weeks.)


I’m thinking of a couple acquaintances who, days before passing, said their good-byes to friends, knowing (or choosing) to go – both were younger ill people.

As bystanders who are given these insights into free will choices being made, if it is ‘fear thoughts’ of the mind that causes pain in the body, what can we offer to our brothers in pain?

I tend to avoid prayers for ‘miracles’ (my own ideas of how things should turn out) and just pray for MBO, most benevolent outcome. God’s will.

The lesson says that we create all of this, so do my prayers for another mean anything? Can the outcome only be created by a persons own thoughts?


I know a change of thought/belief in the person is best, but God can intervene (when best for all involved – MBO!).

More people die then experience spontaneous healings. I think that an elevated atmosphere, Grace, is how I can help.

My prayer has changed for an ill person I know … that he be surrounded by the love of his ancestors and entourage. “Let the Grace in!’ Then MBO!
