ACIM Lesson 136 notes.

Sickness is a defense against the truth.


“What God wills for you must be received.”

This is such a tough lesson. I confess that I just perused it and at this level it was negative and confusing. Paragraph 11 pulled me back in as it provided more positivity.

“God knows not of your plans to change His Will. The universe remains unheeding of the laws by which you thought to govern it. And Heaven has not bowed to hell, nor life to death. You can but choose to think you die, or suffer sickness or distort the truth in any way. What is created is apart from all of this. Defenses are plans to defeat what cannot be attacked. What is unalterable cannot change. And what is wholly sinless cannot sin.”

The Love of God is stable.

All our false beliefs about who we think we are related to our body just tangles its systems between the true-loving energy field and the mistaken thought forms we feed into the body’s source field.

“I have forgotten what I really am, for I mistook my body for myself.”

I am not separate from the Loving Source of Creation. My thoughts are to change to be in support of my True Self which will then support my body, mind, and soul.

God wills for me that I accept the Love, light, peace, joy, strength, and truth that I really am.

So be it.


“I will accept the truth of what I am, and let my mind be wholly healed today.”

In her lesson notes, Hollie describes the body as ‘a neutral channel through which Love’s work can be done.’ She beautifully instructs me to use Love – that my attention should be on the soul as the body untangles itself.

“We need to bring the Love that we find ourselves to be to water all the abandoned, isolated parts of ourselves so that we can identify with our true nature above all else in an integrated way.” ~ Hollie Holden

I love you body … all of your parts and every cell.


I am feeling the ‘little crack’ that Hollie always mentions, meaning that a new insight is forming, or some false thought is being released.

Thank you, body.

I am so grateful for all you are capable of and able to handle, coming from this consciousness. I respect you and only wish for that respect and admiration to grow. You amaze me regularly with healing as you do.

I am blessed by you. Please forgive me for the influences of my mind. I am grateful for the new awareness.

I mistook my body for myself. I am not a body. And my mind cannot attack.
