ACIM Lesson 304 notes.

Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.


“Perception is a mirror, not a fact. And what I look on is my state of mind, reflected outward.”

I don’t see the real world. My mind judges everything I see against the small bits of knowledge and experience I have gained in this short life. I don’t see because my mind can’t handle taking in all I am exposed to in every moment. I don’t see because, mostly, I am afraid.

Looking out my kitchen window this morning I could see the sea. As I turned away my mind popped up the idea, ‘what if there is a tidal wave?’ I had to turn back to look again, checking the horizon.

Everything I see is a threat or a problem to be solved.

I shall look again, give a second gaze, to move past the reactionary impulses of my mind. Now the sea shines with the reflection of the Sun giving me colors of white, yellow, orange, and blue (with purple on the horizon).

Long loving looks bring me into this holy instant where I can SEE.

Great Love, help me to remember to pause to honor Your Creation that surrounds me.



Something grew in me this past weekend, which I blogged about yesterday. Today, I recognize that I’ve been obscuring the sight of Christ. When I think of people in my life and events of my past, there is an ease, understanding, and the openness of forgiveness to my feeling now.

It’s all OK. My perception has changed. I bless all my loved ones — I was unable to see them.

Christ has risen in me! Thank you, God. _/\_
