Lesson 9, January 9

I see nothing as it is now.

In seeing nothing as it is now, we are reaffirming what the two previous lessons stated, that “I see only the past,” and that “my mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.”

Understanding the lessons are not needed, but daily moment to moment practicing of the lessons is mandatory.

Each time that we remember this moment to moment practice we are on the road to becoming more aware of the need to take what we are seeing less seriously.

How can I be reactive towards someone or something that I don’t understand or see clearly?

Why would I want to take it seriously?

I would only take it seriously if I was being in my egoic mind, which, because of its judgmental nature, pretends to know everything about everything.

Otherwise, I don’t know, nor do I need to know or understand anything about what I appear to be seeing. It’s just none of my business!

My sole responsibility is to offer what I see to the Holy Spirit to help me see it differently, and to reveal to me what I need to know about it in the right time and place.

My only job is to relax, let go, and let God offer me a new perception of a world that is not real, as well as a new perception of the past which no longer exists.

Knowing that I see nothing as it is now offers me a perspective that releases me from an illusory sense of control. I am never in control, much as the ego would to think it has or wants to be in control.

Knowing that I don’t know empowers me to surrender to the universal force that does know, and that will rightly guide me when I follow His lead.

I see nothing as it is now. So, relax, let go, and let God.
