ACIM Lesson 153 notes.

In my defenselessness my safety lies.


“For you will not see the light, until you offer it to all your brothers. As they take it from your hands, so will you recognize it as your own.”

I woke with a full heart this morning. It being Sunday, I spent time texting with family and friends offering Love across the miles. I was not lessened by all that I shared. If anything, my heart is more full.

“Salvation can be thought of as a game that happy children play.”

I am all into the joyous games. I let go of the competitive games, wanting to be seen as good. Being as God created me gives me all that I desire: Love, joy, peace, truth, strength, and community!

I am as God created me … Loving, Loved, Beloved.


“Defenselessness can never be attacked, because it recognizes strength so great attack is folly, or a silly game a tired child might play when he becomes too sleepy to remember what he wants.”

I have been noticing lately that my arguments and defensive spoken points never say what I truly want. My mind plans for difficult conversations by searching for good arguments that describe possible problems that may lie ahead for those I care about. My first word offerings are never to just say how I feel, what I desire, or how I want things to go. I believe that coming into a state of defenselessness can bring forward my inner truth to speak of what I want.


“In time, with practice, you will never cease to think of Him, and hear His loving voice guiding your footsteps into quiet ways.”

The practice carries me to where I want to be.

‘Nearer my God to thee.’
