ACIM Lesson 95 notes.

I am one Self, united with my Creator.


In my reflection, I compared the words of yesterday’s theme with today’s. “I am as God created me” brings two ideas of myself in separate ways.

There is the old traditional way of ‘created in the image of God’ which has me think of my body. Of course, today I don’t think of God as a human with a body so this is a carry over. But, does it offer me any jewels? I am as God created me, a physical being created as a part of a natural ecosystem. I will pick up this jewel.

The second thought on being as God created me is being reminded of my original blessed innocent light. The Presence of Love that I experience when I connect to my true Self.

For some reason this lesson, “I am one Self”, has me think of my mind as part of the greater mind. My mind seems separate, but sometimes I wonder if it is one mind and my thoughts are all there is. I don’t see any evidence of this being so from my interactions with others. Curious … it is said I am but one Self.

LOL. God must have a very cluttered mind.

This just feels like rambling today so I will let it go. All is well. I am loved.

“You are [I am] one Self, united and secure in light and joy and peace.”


“… at one with every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and peace.”

Practice for five minutes every hour!

Logic tells me that this is an impossible request so, in the past, I have chosen to put it aside. In today’s lesson, the request is emphasized.

I want to be that guiltless Child of God but find this request burdensome. I can’t do this perfectly.

In Hollie’s notes she has the perspective that the practice is that ‘we must first fill our own cup’. (I did not think about there being a motive behind the request … this helps.)

For starters, I will acknowledge the practice period request. Then try to do better. I can do my best … do my part. (For me, the lesson offers to call things a mistake to ease the guilt. A mistake still brings up guilt in me.)


I am feeling resistance to the emphasis this lesson is putting on practice time. And yet, I know all it says about my beliefs and excuses to practice. As I read paragraphs 8 & 9, I asked ‘why?’, and told myself there would be no answer about my resistance to the practice. Then, paragraph 10 gave the answer.

“They (errors) are attempts to keep you unaware you are one Self, united with your Creator, at one with every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and peace.”

I am surprised by my resistance. I do give so much time and attention to growth, so resistance of ego is not so obvious as in this circumstance.

I like paragraphs 12 to 15 connecting me, God, and others. It is motivational.
