On the journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth, A Course in Miracles (ACIM) offers profound lessons that guide us toward a state of inner peace. Welcome to ACIM lesson 6 with Qigong support for ACIM students.
ACIM Lesson 6 Introduction:
“I am upset because I see something that is not there.“
The Course in Miracles Lesson 6, “I am upset because I see something that is not there,” builds upon the foundation laid by its preceding lesson. In the video we explore the significance of this lesson and how it can be practically applied in our daily lives.
Lesson 6 teaches us that our distress and upset emotions stem from our tendency to dwell on the past or worry about the future. We often perceive situations through the lens of our past experiences or project our fears onto what lies ahead. The lesson challenges us to recognize that what we perceive as upsetting is, in fact, not present in the current moment.

Practical Application of Lesson 6
One effective method is to write the lesson down on Post-Its and place them in visible areas like your computer, car dashboard, or handbag. This serves as a constant reminder to stay mindful of the lesson’s essence throughout the day.
Before delving into the lesson, take a moment to identify what is causing distress in your life. It could be a recent event or something lingering from the past. By pinpointing the source of your upset, you gain clarity on where to apply the lesson.
Fill in the blanks with your specific circumstances. For example, “I am upset with [fill in the blank] because I see things which are not there.” This personalized application helps tailor the lesson to your unique experiences.
I encourage acknowledging that there are no small upsets; they all equally disturb our peace of mind. The key is to be willing to let go of each upset, recognizing that holding onto any one of them hinders your return to a state of inner peace.
Anchoring the Lesson with Qigong:
To solidify the practice, use breath and movement to anchor the lesson into your experience. The video concludes with a grounding exercise—a protective cross visualization. By drawing energy from the earth, inhaling it up through the body, and exhaling it back down, you create a protective shield around yourself. This simple yet powerful ritual ensures that you carry the newfound peace with you as you navigate the challenges of your day.

ACIM Lesson 5 Original Text:
1. The exercises with this idea are very similar to the preceding ones. ²Again, it is necessary to name both the form of upset (anger, fear, worry, depression and so on) and the perceived source very specifically for any application of the idea. ³For example:
⁴I am angry at _________ because I see something that is not there.
⁵I am worried about _________ because I see something that is not there.
2. Today’s idea is useful for application to anything that seems to upset you, and can profitably be used throughout the day for that purpose. ²However, the three or four practice periods which are required should be preceded by a minute or so of mind searching, as before, and the application of the idea to each upsetting thought uncovered in the search.
3. Again, if you resist applying the idea to some upsetting thoughts more than to others, remind yourself of the two cautions stated in the previous lesson:
²There are no small upsets. ³They are all equally disturbing to my peace of mind.
⁵I cannot keep this form of upset and let the others go. ⁶For the purposes of these exercises, then, I will regard them all as the same.
