I do not understand anything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].
The ego wants us to understand, analyze and figure out every little, teensy, eensy thing. Round and round it goes with its distractions. Stay open, don’t question, use everything you see.
In today’s lesson we are clearing our mind of the past. We do not know what anything is for nor do we understand anything we see. As Jesus says, have an open mind, one without judgment and this will do the function it is meant to do.
I enjoy going through the Workbook with others, even though technically according to Jesus, we only need to the Workbook once. For me, a fresh approach, a beginner’s mind if you will, assists me even after multiple decades of ACIM in my life. When I believe I know everything, I have to remember I know nothing at all. The arrogance of the ego can keep me separate if even ever so subtly. I am one with everyone here.
