“To your tired eyes I bring a vision of a different world, so new and clean and fresh you will forget the pain and sorrow that you saw before. ⁵Yet this a vision is which you must share with everyone you see, for otherwise you will behold it not. ⁶To give this gift is how to make it yours. ⁷And God ordained, in loving kindness, that it be for you.” (ACIM, T-31.VIII.8:4-7)
“You are still worn and tired, and the desert’s dust still seems to cloud your eyes and keep you sightless. (ACIM, T-18.VIII.13:2)
I am indeed world-weary and tired indeed of not seeing. Of projecting, judging, and reincarnating over hundreds of lifetimes.
Over the past six months, I have given myself over to daily study of A Course in Miracles in order to see differently. With vision. Through the eyes of Spirit. It’s the beginning of envisioning myself and everyone else as we really are in Spirit. Equal and divine. Together. One with God. A huge endeavor, but not without hope–or help. The reason for Spirit.
Difficult to share these new and emerging understandings of mine outside the context of the Course. I’ve been delving into this for the past three years, but only after studying with my online study group have I begun to understand and find increasing glimpses of Inner Peace–the goal of the Course.
