ACIM Lesson 320 notes.

My Father gives all power unto me.


“Your Will can do all things in me, and then extend to all the world as well through me.”

The ‘I am’ statements in this lesson perplexed me. I asked, who is the ‘I’? My initial thought was Christ Jesus (as Christ, he has all the power stated). So, when I achieve Christ consciousness, this lesson will apply to me.

I reflected more, read Hollie’s notes in the hope she would have a perspective on this. With no additional clarification I read the lesson again, this time reading the ‘I am’ sentences as myself. I felt their power and understood that they apply to me.

There is no need for me to wait for ‘someday’ for me to achieve ‘something’.

“I am he [she] to whom all this is given. I am he [she] in whom the power of my Father’s Will abides.”


I had a difficult visit with my mom in the nursing home. She has severe dementia, so she told me stories of other people and places she had been visiting. I hate to correct her, but when she insists that I take her home, I don’t know how to support her fantasies and must tell her the truth of her current life.

She would not believe me.

To break her obsessing, I tried to get her to put her attention on her heart, or God, or Jesus. She smiled for a minute, but then returned to her fears. As I drove home, I was happy that she puts no blame for her life on God.

“God is Love,” I told her. This could have gone very wrong if she had asked why he put her in her situation. My thoughts go toward how we are all said to be co-creators of our lives.

We reap what we sow.

It would be awful to put that on someone, that their life choices create their situation. I think I know about such things but must question everything when I see good people hurting. I don’t think that these situations are God’s will (or a test as some might say).

My life is good. Is this a sign of my good choices, my releasing of the negative, or just luck?
