ACIM Lesson 239 notes.

The glory of my Father is my own.


I feel the false humility that the first sentence mentions. Thank you, Lord for Your gifts, and for Your promise.

“Salvation is a promise, made by God, that you would find your way to Him at last.” ~W.II.2 What is Salvation.

Thank you for the light that always shines within me. I promise to always remember to turn back to it when I get turned away.

So it is.


Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility. Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us.”

Where does the false humility come from?

It must serve the ego, giving some sense of protection, that I lean on being less instead of having lived this life knowing I am a Holy Child of God. I came in that way, a divine child lit from within, beautiful girl.

I recall two things from my childhood:

  1. Being one kid in a large family; we all had to be loved equally, no specialness
  2. Excited of an achievement, making a mistake, and then severely teased by my siblings.

No one was meant to be special, more than the other, so instead we were all unworthy, unlovable.

But how did it serve to protect?

Others didn’t like it when I shined and could be cruel toward me. It seems that It can take just one bully, with others as quiet bystanders, to ingrain behaviors into the psyche.

I stopped shining and knowing my holiness because of children’s play so as to avoid future pain.

Is there a better way for our children to grow, to keep their own light?

I’m asking you Great Love …
