ACIM Lesson 311 notes.

I judge all things as I would have them be.


“Let us not use it today, but make a gift of it to Him Who has a different use for it.”

Most often, my judgements are to find the positive in all things. These days I avoid looking at all the negative (a judgement) craziness in the world. I find this to be growth in that I know I don’t know how to resolve in a loving way. Therefore, why would I want to involve my mind into worthless judgements?

The lesson reminds me that I can improve my methods to eliminate my judgements by remembering to turn it over to God.

So be it.


“What is the last judgement?” ~ Part II, Section 10

Both this lesson and our start on Section 10 bring me new understanding of judgement. God’s judgement, which I’ve lived my life fearing, is freeing … forgiveness.

As I read the Section 10 narrative, I could only think of Jesus’s revealing all of this to us in the parable of the Prodigal Son (see lesson 306 notes).

“This is God’s Final Judgement: ‘You are still My holy Son, forever innocent, forever loving and forever loved, as limitless as your Creator, and completely changeless and forever pure. Therefore awaken and return to Me. I am your Father and you are My son.’”

My judgement, which I thoughtlessly spread with no concern (along with lots of self-righteousness), is/was destructive to God’s children.

“Judgement was made to be a weapon used against the truth. It separates …”

My judgement lacks broad perspective so it is false, and it forgets the innocence within all God’s children. I ask to always keep these lessons in my awareness. _/\_
