ACIM and Cultivating a “No Worries” Mindset

This may be the most fundamental lesson I learned in the past few months.

If someone cuts me off in traffic, does it matter? No.

If someone doesn’t call me when they said they would call, does it matter? Nope.

If someone doesn’t get something done on time, does it matter? Will I remember it tomorrow? No.

So why get upset about any of it? All of a sudden life is so easy. The phrase I endeavor to keep on the tip of my tongue at all times is “no worries.”

And how relieved are all the people in our life when they realize we are not mad or upset about anything? That every stress or pain of the past has been forgotten, and all that matters is we love them RIGHT NOW. They can rest easy, they can be at peace, they can breathe. They are free.

“Now in the hands made gentle by His touch, the Holy Spirit lays a picture of a different you. It is a picture of a body still, for what you really are cannot be seen nor pictured. Yet this one has not been used for purpose of attack, and therefore never suffered pain at all. It witnesses to the eternal truth that you cannot be hurt, and points beyond itself to both your innocence and his. Show this unto your brother, who will see that every tear is wiped away in laughter and in love. And he will look on his forgiveness there, and with healed eyes will look beyond it to the innocence that he beholds in you. Here is the proof that he has never sinned; that nothing which his madness bid him do was ever done, or ever had effects of any kind. That no reproach he laid upon his heart was ever justified, and no attack can ever touch him with the poisoned and relentless sting of fear.

Attest his innocence and not his guilt. Your healing is his comfort and his health because it proves illusions are not true. It is not will for life but wish for death that is the motivation for this world. Its only purpose is to prove guilt real. No worldly thought or act or feeling has a motivation other than this one. …

“Your function is to show your brother sin can have no cause. …

“So does your healing show your mind is healed, and has forgiven what he did not do. And so he is convinced his innocence was never lost, and healed along with you. Thus does the miracle undo all things the world attests can never be undone. And hopelessness and death must disappear before the ancient clarion call of life. This call has power far beyond the weak and miserable cry of death and guilt. The ancient calling of the Father to His Son, and of the Son unto His Own, will yet be the last trumpet that the world will ever hear. Brother, there is no death. And this you learn when you but wish to show your brother that you had no hurt of him. He thinks your blood is on his hands, and so he stands condemned. Yet it is given you to show him, by your healing, that his guilt is but the fabric of a senseless dream.”

  1. The trick though, is that Jude has worries, but learns to make them better.

    So should we all.

  2. John~

    I’m loving the Beatles reference


    Let’s take it one step further:

    Hey jude, dont make it bad.
    Take a sad song and make it better.
    Remember to let her into your heart,
    Then you can start to make it better.

    Hey jude, dont be afraid.
    You were made to go out and get her.
    The minute you let her under your skin,
    Then you begin to make it better.

    And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
    Dont carry the world upon your shoulders.
    For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
    By making his world a little colder.

    Hey jude, dont let me down.
    You have found her, now go and get her.
    Remember to let her into your heart,
    Then you can start to make it better.

    So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
    Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
    And dont you know that its just you, hey jude, youll do,
    The movement you need is on your shoulder.

    Hey jude, dont make it bad.
    Take a sad song and make it better.
    Remember to let her under your skin,
    Then youll begin to make it

  3. Love is all you need. So sayeth me, and the Beatles.

  4. I believe in the “no worries” mentality when it comes to life. If you have strong beliefs, then anyone else’s doubt will not matter and you can just brush off things.

    Because it things don’t work out and you understand that it’s not your fault then it will not affect you.

    Is that on the right track?
