ACIM Lesson 104 notes.

I seek but what belongs to me in truth.


“God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.”

“Joy and peace are my inheritance.”

The lesson says that we fill up the space meant for God’s gifts with stuff we have created ourselves. They may fill me but they don’t fulfill me.

“Today we would removed all meaningless and self-made gifts which we have placed upon the altar where God’s gifts belong.”

Joy and peace belong to me today.


“God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.”

I woke before sunrise this morning; my mind was spinning with family concerns. For a while now it has been an effort in the morning to bring my mind to gratitude. My efforts tend to be prayers of petition for loved ones as I wake with an underlying fear. Today, I finally thought to bring my mind to the lessons. I recalled yesterday’s lesson, so I repeated it. Another recent lesson took over as my mantra.

Love and joy and peace abide in me.

This brought me the presence of peace and gratitude that I sought.

I sought what belongs to me in truth and felt the gifts that are forever within me.

So it is. _/\_


God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.

This is true for me; I want these above all else and I find them within me. I was going to ask why others don’t find these things, but I feel I answered this by saying ‘within’.

I am further blessed when I see the joy and peace from within manifest outwardly, into my world. This must be why meditation is so important, to quiet the outside world and put emphasis on the gifts within.

Joy and peace are my inheritance.
