ACIM Daily Poem for Lesson 14 • January-14

Please Read ACIM Lesson #14CLICK HEREGod did not create a meaningless world.No matter how badSomething makes me feel --If God didn't make it,Then it's not real.To all I see this rule applies --Otherwise happiness deniesThe love light in my eyes.My mind's a clean slate,So I let God createThe world He wants for me,For now and eternity.I'm headed in one direction,Toward God's Perfection,And I'm just stopped at a stationOn the way to Salvation.From "Songs for Miracles -- ACIM Daily Poems"© Leo Vidal, 2014, All Rights Reserved

Please Read ACIM Lesson #10CLICK HEREMy thoughts do not mean anything.The thoughts you think are quite unreal,Although your thoughts can make you feel, And your false illusions now are stealingThe true emotions you should be feeling.So don't let the external worldTie you to an infernal world --It's time we all beginTo see the truth within.It's time to say good byeTo false things that must die --Your mind is just a blank,And it's God you can thank.Your thoughts flow through youLike a stream --Let them go through you

ACIM Daily Poem for Lesson 8 • January 8th

Please Read ACIM Lesson #8CLICK HEREMy mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.To the past my thoughts are tied,So now my mind is occupied --My vision needs to be more wide --The things I see already died.Can I be free? I've tried and tried,But my brain is too preoccupied.I pretend I'm having a ball,But I'm not really happy at all --I thought I answered the call,But instead I took the fall --This can happen to one and all.Racing through my brain,Like a runaway train,Are thoughts of the pastThat will never last.With a scalpel and sutureI must cut out the future --I have to learn how To live in the now.I need new eyesThat will recognizeWhy time always fliesInto unseen skies.My eyes are blinkingBut I'm still not thinking --From the truth I'm shrinking --Is my ship now sinking?Though my mind will resist,I know I will persistTill my name's on God's List --If I get a slap on the wrist,It's better than being hit with a fist,And seeing things that no longer exist.God, please help me see what's

ACIM Daily Poem for Lesson 4 • January 4

Please Read ACIM Lesson #4CLICK HEREThese thoughts do not mean any thing. They are like the things I see.Now I see all things I hadAre neither good nor bad,And just like every other thing,Thoughts do not mean anything.They have a strange appeal,These thoughts that are not real --They can keep out the light,So I don't know what's right.On ground where I once stoodI see the bad and good,But now I do dissentFrom what they represent.The truth has been applied --From this I cannot hide --But now I must confide --They took me for a ride.There's no exceptionTo the lessonOf rejectionOf false perception,So it's time for inspectionOf your godly reflection.It's not a trivialityTo look for reality --All we'll really seeIs our own neutrality.Private thoughtsSoon will rot --They just cannotBe soughtOr caught.When you hear the bells of Heaven ring,Like an angel you may sing,And no matter what your life may bring,Your thoughts do not mean any thing.From "Songs for Miracles -- ACIM Daily Poems"© Leo

ACIM Daily Poem for Lesson 2 • January 2

Please Read ACIM Lesson #2CLICK HEREI've given everything I seeAll the meaning that it has for meWhen I see a little boy run,I think of my son,And how we used to have fun.When I see one woman with another,I think of my mother,Walking with my brother.When I see a white bird flying in the sun,I think of the Holy Spirit,God put in everyone.When I see a man in his Mercedes Benz,I know I'm looking at himThrough my jealousy lens.When I see two friends talking on the phone,I remember how it feelsTo be alone.When I see clouds on a rainy day,I think of the obstaclesIn my way. When I see flowers on a sunny day,I remember being a child,And going outside to play.When I see a circus clown,I remember --I don't like to frown.When I see people going to church,I remember that God never

If God Could Dream

You are as perfect as God ever dreamed,Or could have dreamed,If only He could be in my eyes,And see you as I see you now.Even though you are goneYou are with me always,In my heart and in that secret placeWhere no one ever goesOr has ever gone.Yet we will go there together againAnd be as one true loveThat was meant to be

ACIM Daily Poem for Lesson 1 • January 1

For Lesson One PleaseClick HereNothing I see means anythingBefore life's mirror I'm preening,But everything has no meaning --It is what it is,Nothing more, nothing less--An old pair of shoes orA brand new dress --All things I see Have the power to bless --And it doesn't matter what past I bring --Nothing I see means anything. So now let's just let everything be --Stop giving meaning to whatever we see --Whether a high thing or a low thing,It is really a "no" thing.It's not what it isn't --This has to be true --It simply means nothing,To me or to you --And now God's not so distant --
