Lesson 6, January 6

I am upset because I see something that is not there.

Yesterday’s pivotal lesson stated that “I am never upset for the reason I think.” This statement invites us to respond with a “No” any time we experience any emotion other than peace, love, or joy.

Today that response of “No” is being generalized to all that we see. If we are upset because we are seeing something that is not there, then our seeing itself is what is being called into question.

Yesterday we discovered that we no longer had the luxury of not taking responsibility for our thoughts. Today we apply this to our vision as well.

A connection is being made that bridges what we are thinking with what we are seeing.

What we see is not real. It may appear to be real, but in truth it is only a reflection of our thoughts, which are nothing but judgments, the dualistic thoughts that come from our heads and not our hearts.

Thoughts are ephemeral. They swing back and fro on both sides of the fence. Thoughts are not the deep, changeless, and eternal love that lies in our hearts. Only love is constant. Only love is real.

What is real is invisible.

What we see through our physical eyes is a mirror of our minds, but it is never what is real.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye.” The Little Prince (1943) by Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

We are being moved into an eternal place of spaciousness, of safety, and security.

A place that is always there for us.

We are discovering, or uncovering the truth that only love is real, that Nothing is Real except God, that Nothing is Real except Good.

Only what is changeless is real.

Form does not matter. All form, any form.

Form is not real but is only a reflection.

If no form is real, then can I continue to take the world that I see seriously!?!

Why should I become upset if what I am seeing is not there?!?

I no longer need to rent out any space in my mind to a dualistic ego mind! Let me stay in the safety and security of the heart space.
