ACIM Lesson 161 notes.

Give me your blessing, Holy Son of God.


“I would behold you with the eyes of Christ, and see perfect sinlessness in you.”

(I spent time in reflection thinking of a family member.)

Thank you dear one for how full my heart feels when my mind opens to consider an unlimited you. Is this feeling a taste of ‘one whom Heaven cherishes, the angels love, and God created perfect’?

Feeling blessed that the peace of God comes to me through this lesson with the thought of you, Holy Child of God.


“It seems to be the body that we feel limits our freedom.”

As I read the lesson I thought about us, in our bodies, driving around in cars. This furthers our separation and, perhaps, is why we all seem to be affected by ‘road-rage’.

Later that morning, I was driving ad found myself upset with the driver ahead of me for going too slow. I imagined his light shining outside and around his car. The light then extended back toward me and touched my heart.

We’re all connected.

“One brother is all brothers. Every mind contains all minds, for every mind is one. Such is the truth.”


While reading the lesson I was reminded of today’s email message from ‘Bowl of Saki’, Hazrat Inayat Khan.

“When power leads and wisdom follow, the face of wisdom is veiled and she stumbles; but when wisdom leads and power follows, they arrive at their destination.” ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

I see in myself, with all my seeking of wisdom, that power leads. I still wish to be seen as good, smart, above.

In the lesson, my Holy brother is there for me to see myself, flaws and beauty, alike as all created in the image of God.
