Jesus Faces His Inner Critic in the Desert. (1 min 29 sec)


    1. Imagine Jesus hanging out in the desert for 40 days and nights. He's gotta be famished, right?

    That's when a sly voice pops into his head (the ego, not an actual devil with horns).
    Voice: "Hey Jesus, feeling peckish? Why not turn these rocks into bread? Easy peasy!"
    Jesus, wise as ever, knows true satisfaction isn't about a quick McMiracle. He replies, "Hold on, happiness isn't just about food. It's about connecting with something bigger."
    The voice tries again, this time flashing fancy visions of power and control. "Look at all this cool stuff you could have, Jesus! Just bow down to me and BAM! It's yours."
    Jesus isn't interested in shortcuts or worshipping anything but the good stuff. He says, "Nope, thanks. Real power comes from serving others, not lording it over them."
    Finally, the voice gets tricky, quoting scripture to tempt Jesus to show off his divine powers. Jesus sees through it though. "Whoa there, no need to test God! True faith trusts, it doesn't need flashy demonstrations."
    The whole experience is like us facing our own inner critic - that voice whispering doubts and desires. ACIM teaches that by recognizing these temptations as distractions and choosing to connect with our higher selves, we find lasting peace and purpose.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
