I came into this dream as a blind person. For this reason, when I read the word “see” in the course, I change it to “perceive”. After all, are we all not attempting to perceive truly?
The most intriguing paragraph in today’s lesson to me is the following one:
As we go along, you may have many “light episodes.” They may take many different forms, some of them quite unexpected. Do not be afraid of them. They are signs that you are opening your eyes at last. They will not persist, because they merely symbolize true perception, and they are not related to knowledge. These exercises will not reveal knowledge to you. But they will prepare the way to it.
In the adventure of the Workbook, I am eager to find out how true perception will manifest to me. I do often perceive light when meditating, having been able to see physical light until the age of 17, but I don’t think true perception is just that. I think it is coming to understand the world I live in more lovingly, less fearfully.
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.
