Keys to this Lesson
What we see before us is our thoughts projected outward.
We do not recognize them as nothing or meaningless.
We think we think them, so we think we see them.
Jesus tells us that this is how our SEEING was made.
We gave the body’s eyes this purpose.
We are not really seeing, we are making images, pictures, illusions.
Jesus says this is an introductory idea of image making and our supposed seeing.
We will understand, he says, when we have seen light around familiar objects, ever so subtle at the edges.
This is the beginning of real vision.
Do not be afraid of these light episodes.
They are the sign that we are beginning to awaken.
They symbolize true perception but knowledge.
We are preparing for knowledge by doing these lessons.
Repeat idea to yourself.
Apply to whatever you see.
Use its name as you rest your eyes on it.
My thoughts are images that I have made.
This table is an image that I have made.
That monitor is an image that I have made.
This ring is an image that I have made.
That body is an image that I have made.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
