ACIM Lesson 159 notes.

I give the miracles I have received.


“Behold the store of miracles set out for you to give. Are you not worth the gift, when God appointed it to be given to you?”

Hollie’s notes were a blessing again today. She offered that Christ Jesus’ words, ‘Love one another as I have Loved you’ provides a template for Loving.

“So this is the loop: 1.know you are loved, 2. Extend that love, 3. Know even more deeply how loved you are.” ~Hollie Holden

Feel it; know it; give it away again!

The lesson describes for us that there is a ‘storehouse’ of our gifts open for us to receive and then to give. These gifts that flow into the world through us connect us all to Christ’s Loving intent for us all.


“Christ’s vision is the miracle in which all miracles are born.”

I want the gift of Christ’s vision so my quiet reflection was about this. I would like to be kinder, more giving with my mother now that her body has recovered but her brain is mis-firing with dementia.

In meditation, my attention went to my breath where I understood I should take a breath before responding to requests. (They are mostly to go home which just hurts my heart.)

My inner self agreed. “Second thought!” as Fr. Richard has taught me.

Yes I can take a breath which then gives a moment for me to notice the field of grace given to us. Then, let the Love of Christ flow through me as I have chosen Love over the separating thoughts of my mind.


“Christ’s vision is the holy ground in which the lilies of forgiveness set their roots. This is their home. They can be brought from here back to the world, but they can never grow in its unnourishing and shallow soil. They need the light and warmth and kindly care Christ’s charity provides. They need the love with which He looks on them. And they become His messengers who give as they received.”

I love this metaphor of the lilies, grown in the field of Christ’s vision. They can be plucked and taken into the world, but the roots remain in the garden.

The world is enriched, the lily is admired, the garden lives in Christ’s vision and nurturance.
