Lesson 2, January 2

I have given everything I see all the meaning that it has for me.

Money, foods, people all become good or bad only because of the meanings which I imbue them with. And those meanings that I give to something, to anything, can change at any time.

I cannot therefore understand anything that I see. Trying to understand anyone or anything gives you the booby prize.

All meaning is ego bound, unlike love which is eternally infinite and changeless.

All attempts at making meaning, or understanding is how my focus of attention gets taken away from its home, in my heart, and up into my head, the ego, where judgment resides.

My judgments come from me and go out into the world, to become a colored lens through which I see the world. Every judgment becomes another lens coming between me and what my eyes see.

These lenses of judgment pile on top of each other, clouding what is before me.

Soon, I am no longer seeing clearly at all.

A Course in Miracles is a way to return my vision, as all that I misperceived is erased when I recognize that I have given everything that I see all the meaning that it has for me.

What is not to my liking, what I perceive as causing me pain or struggle, is but a judgment that I have made at some time in the past.

Nothing I see out there means anything except where I have declared it to be good or bad or easy or difficult or lacking or abundant or whatever.

Nothing is good or bad or easy or difficult or lacking or abundant.

Erase all the meaning that I have given to things, Holy Spirit.

Let me be purified, that I may see clearly.

It is beneficial to verbalize the lessons out loud because that is how to access the energy of your power of higher vibrations.

Our goal is an open mind and an open heart.

Releasing our judgments from everything is what will purify us to become an empty channel, to be an instrument of God’s Love.

In my emptiness [of ego] I am filled with Sprit. I need do nothing but allow God’s Love-Light to radiate from me, out to all the world.
