Lesson 17 –  I see no neutral things.

Keys to this Lesson

We are looking at how cause and effect works here in the world.
So why are there no neutral things?
If we remember from our previous lesson, we do not have neutral thoughts.
The thought comes first, then the world is projected.
This lesson then is a continuation of what we have been learning in the previous lessons.
Why could this idea be hard?
We want to believe that it is something outside of us that is affecting us.


Eyes open.
Say to yourself, I see no neutral things because I have no neutral thoughts.
Look around you, glance on each thing, then say:
I do not see a neutral wall, because my thoughts about walls are not neutral.
I do not see a neutral body, became my thoughts about bodies are not neutral.

No distinctions between animate or inanimate, pleasant or not.
You do not see anything that is really alive or really joyous.
3-4 practice periods, no less than three.
If you experience discomfort or resistance, reduce the length of the practice period.


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.
