“In this book you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves. We hope you are convinced now that God can remove whatever self-will has blocked you off from Him. If you have already made a decision, and an inventory of your grosser handicaps, you have made a good beginning. That being so you have swallowed and digested some big chunks of truth about yourself.”

surrenders wrong methods of development.”

“Let us waste no further time looking for the secret of success or the key to happiness. Already the door is open and whosoever will may enter.” 
Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind
My step father caught me stealing his money 
and told me that he wasn’t going to tell my 
mother because it would break her heart. 
My mom and dad have been married 
28 years now and I see him as my father. 
Occasionally we will be overwhelmed, 
mostly we will be enchanted.
Jean Houston
“In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you,
but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”

ACIM Workbook Lesson 365 Insights
“This holy instant would I give to You.
Be You in charge. For I would follow You,
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.”
“Be You in charge.” Those are the words I need to remember in every situation. Those are the words that will carry me Home. Trying to be in charge on my own is the problem. Letting the Holy Spirit be in charge is the answer. In the Epilogue it says, “Whatever troubles you, be certain that He has the answer, and will gladly give it to you, if you simply turn to Him and ask it of Him.”
“Be You in charge.” These four little words are not complicated to remember. If I have the willingness to remember these words, I will remember them. Letting myself be carried by the Holy Spirit is how I will return Home. It is how I will awaken to the truth. Opening my mind to the Holy Spirit’s healing perspectives is how the insanity in my mind will be undone. The Holy Spirit brings the Light of God, the Light of Truth, to every dark corner in my mind, to every fear, to every judgment, to every false idea.
The rest of my life is dedicated to these four words, “Be You in charge.” I may falter and falter again, but with my focus on these four words I will be carried past all the false illusions of the world. I will be carried through every fear, every nightmare dream. Letting the Holy Spirit be in charge is my most important prayer. My openness to the Holy Spirit allows Him to do His work. Healing my mind is His job, not mine.
“Be You in charge.” These words open the gates to Love’s healing Light. These healing words pave the way to my awakening to the truth. On this last day of the year, I need remember but these words, “Be You in charge,” and I can be confident that healing will follow.
My heart is filled with gratitude for this year dedicated to receiving Holy Spirit’s healing perspective for each lesson. This practice has strengthened my trust in His presence in my life. It has strengthened my confidence that He is ever present to guide me in all things, to teach me the way of healing and to be a Friend and Comforter.
The fact that I am not alone is more real to me now. I remember it more quickly when I get wrapped up in the events of my day, thinking I must solve my problems on my own. The experience has taught me that I have the means to resolve all problems, not on my own, but in union with the Holy Spirit in my mind. Thoughts of vulnerability and guilt still enter my mind. But I do not give them a dwelling place nearly as long as I used to. My home is Heaven. Separation and isolation cannot abide there and therefore cannot abide in me.
With an enthusiastic heart, I dedicate the coming year to the continued practice of going to the Holy Spirit to receive His healing perspectives every day and throughout the day. This practice has brought me great blessing, yet it is but a tiny taste of what is available to me as I develop the habit of letting Holy Spirit be in charge in every instant. This is my heart’s desire.
This is what will bring me peace. This is what will help me see the Love in my brother that is my own. This is what will help me remember that God’s strength is mine and I share His invulnerability. This is what will help me remember in every moment, “The sight of Christ is all there is to see. The song of Christ is all there is to hear. The hand of Christ is all there is to hold. There is no journey but to walk with Him.” (T.24.V.7:7-10) It is a journey of joy and I give thanks.
If you feel there is more to gain from the Workbook lessons than you have taken in this year, we encourage you to go through the lessons again. You may find you see things the next time through you didn’t see before. Because the Course is leading us to a complete thought reversal, sometimes our attachment to our old way of thinking does not allow us to see the message there in front of us. But trust there has been much gained in this year. Your willingness has expanded dramatically and you will find many gifts as you go through the lessons again.
