Longer Practice Periods:
Repeat these thoughts several times, slowly and with firm determination to understand what they mean, and to hold them in mind:
There is no will but God’s. I cannot be in conflict.
Then spend several minutes in adding some related thoughts, such as:
I am at peace.
Nothing can disturb me. My will is God’s.
My will and God’s are one.
God wills peace for His Son.
During this introductory phase, be sure to deal quickly with any conflict thoughts that may cross your mind. Tell yourself immediately:
There is no will but God’s. These conflict thoughts are meaningless.
If there is one conflict area that seems particularly difficult to resolve, single it out for special consideration. Think about it briefly but very specifically, identify the particular person or persons and the situation or situations involved and tell yourself:
There is no will but God’s. I share it with Him.
My conflicts about ________ cannot be real.
In the shorter periods at regular and predetermined intervals today, say to yourself:
There is no will but God’s. I seek His peace today.
**Please see full lesson in A Course in Miracles for practice. These posts are intended to show what ACIM is and how it might be helpful, however I recommend if you make it your own practice to start from the beginning and to use the book. In general, the longer practices are between 10 and 15 minutes and the shorter practices are less than a minute.
