ACIM Lesson 36 notes.

My holiness envelops everything I see.


“You are holy because your mind is part of God’s.”

My holiness envelops the space that I am in.

The lesson today tells me that this lesson is about what I perceive and yesterday, I was meant to perceive myself differently … as holy. My learning yesterday did not proceed this way. Instead, I felt a shift in my perception of others from my reflection on how I use words to describe others.

I still feel the honoring flow of Love in my being as I consider changing the words I use. As I choose to put people first.


“Your sight is related to His Holiness, not to your ego, and therefore not to your body.”

This grabbed my attention for more reflection.

“Above all else I want to see”

I want the pure loving vision of God; through the lesson I understand this holiness.

My ego is the programming that our practices work to undo to once again know ourselves as Holy Children of God. But, what about my body?

My thoughts and emotions affect the growth of my body so it could be seen as a reflection of the ego. But if my holiness envelops everything I see why is my body not enveloped in my holiness?

It just popped into my head … a new understanding of co-creating!

Like all physical natural life, it is created by God, from Source. But just like a mother grows a baby, nurtures a child, then release a young adult to the care of their own body, so God does the same.

We take over the well-being, or destruction, of our bodies. God’s holiness is still there just like a mother’s love and blessings remain with their adult child.

In later lessons we learn that the body is a communication device, this makes more sense to me now as it is a physical place where our will and God’s interact.


Thank you for the blessing of these insights.

Happy Sunday!
