281: I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts

Lesson 281 “I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.”
 “Father, Your Son is perfect.  When he thinks that he is hurt in any way, it is because he has forgotten who he is,  and that he is as You created him.  Your Thoughts can only bring me happiness.  If ever I am sad or hurt or ill, I have forgotten what You think, and put my little, meaningless ideas in place of where Your Thoughts belong, and where They are.  I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.  The Thoughts I think with You can only bless.  The Thoughts I think with You alone are true.”

 I will not hurt myself today.  For I am far beyond all pain. My Father placed me safe in Heaven, watching over me.  And I would not attack the Son He loves, for what He loves is mine to
love as well.

The New Beginning

The “new beginning” now becomes the focus of the curriculum. The goal is clear, but now you need specific methods for attaining it. The speed by which it can be reached depends on only this; your willingness to practice every step. Each one will help a little, every time it is attempted. And, together, they will lead you both from dreams of judgment to forgiving dreams, and out of pain and fear. They are not new to you, but they are more ideas than rules of thought to you as yet. So now we need to practice them a while, until they are the rules by which you live. We seek to make them habits now, so you will have them ready, and for ANY need.

Atonement

In the Online Daily Miracles classes we dive into the key lessons of A Course in Miracles. Today: I will accept atonement for myself, lesson 139 of the Workbook of A Course in Miracles.

But what is that? Atonement. In the early chapters of the Course we read that atonement really is the ‘undoing‘ of yourself. But what is that you might ask. And is it a pleasant occasion or am I losing things I might want to keep?

And what about this new beginning, can I really start my day over and begin again? How can I spend my day and not making any decisions of myself? Is that even possible?
