ACIM Lesson 169 notes.

By grace I live. By grace I am released.


“Grace becomes inevitable instantly in those who have prepared a table where it can gently be laid and willingly received; an altar clean and holy for the gift.”

As I wrote last year, my experience has been more of witnessing grace just coming to aid me, unexpectedly. These are the memories of great blessings in my life. Now I am ready to live in the state of grace all of the time. I lay my table with care and beauty. I welcome the gifts that HS will provide to lend me where I am meant to be in God’s will.

“By grace I live. By grace I am released. By grace I give. By grace I will release.”

Grace blesses me moving onto my blessing of others … necessary and needed to flow.


“… for grace cannot come until the mind prepares itself for true acceptance.”

OK, but right now my mind can think of two types of grace then …

The lesson speaks of the preparation we make to be open, loving, accepting to release to join God’s will in a field of grace.

Also, I have experienced miracles of grace in my life. Wonderful connections (and miracles) where I was unaware and did not set an intention for grace.

I’m thinking of a lovely phrase that was given me by either Oprah or Iyanla. “Grace just comes.”



I feel such gratitude for these lessons on grace. I love the understanding that grace is the experience in this place of unity, timelessness.

By grace I am released.

This Viktor Frankl quote has moved me …

“Between the stimulus and the response, there is a space. And in that space lies our freedom and power to choose our responses. In our response lies our growth and freedom.”

The grace given to the introvert.
