ACIM Lesson 300 notes.

Only an instant does this world endure.


“[Let] no false perception keep us in its hold, nor represent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene.”

My thoughts go once again to ‘the Prodigal Son’ parable. All the while the son was off following his self- interests, and struggling, there was a loving place, his father’s home, loving him and seeing as his innocent Self.

We all get to choose to return to that place.


I understand the lesson to say that our world lasts just a brief instant. We can take that to reinforce that this is a place of death (nothing lasts) or we can take the pressure off ourselves to release the burdens of this place and time.

Is it all meaningless?

What is eternal is real, so, for us in this world, it would only be Love that has meaning. Let us see everything else we let disturb us, be seen as unimportant. We seek meaning in our lives therefore seeking ways to Love one another is the only sensible path.
