Today, I practice ACIM Lesson 124: Let me remember I am one with God.
As I close my eyes and attempt to concentrate on my oneness with the Divine during the recommended half hour meditation, my mind itches like a pocketful of ants.
Ego pesters, asking why I’m not “enlightened” by now. I’m long overdue for at least one small, tingling moment–a flash of light–a temporary out-of-body dangling, that would finally prove I’m making progress.
Somehow another Voice breaks through and assures me I’m already there—wherever it is I think I need be. Says I’m already One-With.
Do the many shining moments (holy instants?) over my lifetime, wherein I feel slightly Cherished and On Board for a Quick Glimpse of the Eternal, count for nothing? Perhaps I am on track.
Ants and all.
