Nothing to fear in Truth: CA Brooks and Bruce Rawles on ACIM’s Workbook Lesson 48

This audio features CA Brooks and Bruce Rawles talking – on another segment of her bi-weekly ACIM internet radio program on 12Radio – about  that appears in Part II of the Workbook of A Course in Miracles which precedes Workbook Lesson 48, which reminds us that in truth, there is nothing to fear. We catch up on ‘dream news’ and return to the ongoing mindful examination of the “alternative reality”  thought system of fear – and the unsavory results that this shabby substitute for Perfect Peace proffers – and the thought system of unchanging love that motivates our continued investment in shared interests and trusting the Teacher of Kindness we all share.

There is nothing to fear.

The idea for today simply states a fact. It is not a fact to those who believe in illusions, but illusions are not facts. In truth there is nothing to fear. It is very easy to recognize this. But it is very difficult to recognize it for those who want illusions to be true.

Today’s practice periods will be very short, very simple and very frequent. Merely repeat the idea as often as possible. You can use it with your eyes open at any time and in any situation. It is strongly recommended, however, that you take a minute or so whenever possible to close your eyes and repeat the idea slowly to yourself several times. It is particularly important that you use the idea immediately, should anything disturb your peace of mind.

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness. The instant you are willing to do this there is indeed nothing to fear. – W-pI.48
