A Course in Miracles: Lesson 343

Lesson 343

I am not asked to make a sacrifice

To find the mercy and the peace of God.

“The end of suffering can not be loss.  The gift of everything can be but gain.  You only give.  You never take away.  And You created me to be like You, so sacrifice becomes impossible for me as well as You.  I, too, must give.  And so all things are given unto me forever and forever.  As I was created I remain.  Your Son can make no sacrifice, for he must be complete, having the function of completing You.  I am complete because I am Your Son.  I cannot lose, for I can only give, and everything is mine eternally” (ACIM Lesson 343 1:1-11).  

At the Door of Everything, you are given Everything.  You are not asked to sacrifice a thing.  You don’t even have to give up your insanity, as that is lovingly integrated as we experienced in the previous section, 12.  What Is the Ego?.  Thus, we give all things to the Light and in our surrender we are gifted the Queendom.  No cost, free of charge, with no terms, conditions, or blackout dates.  It is the holiest and most peaceful of contracts!

“The mercy and the peace of God are free.  Salvation has no cost.  It is a gift that must be freely given and received.  And it is this that we would learn today” (ACIM Lesson 343 2:1-4).

Today, we scan our mind, body, and actions for any areas where we still believe sacrifice is warranted.  Where do we feel we would in loss and lack rather than holy abundance?  Notice the smallest of areas where there is still attachment to the idea that you know better, holding on to this world rather than giving it to God.  Experience fully the beauty of giving in all areas of your life.  Come to know the eternal flow of energy that moves through you as you give, as there is always more where that comes from.  It is the Eternal Well of Everything…And it is in You, as You.  Namaste.
