Lesson 304

 

Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.

 

 

Two lines stood out to me in today’s lesson, “Perception is a mirror, not a fact. And what I look on is my state of mind, reflected outward.” An inward picture of an inward condition might be another way of saying it. Perception is always a mirrored illusion to obscure Light and Truth. I am in charge of my state of mind. Like it says in an earlier lesson, “I have a kingdom I must rule.” This kingdom is my mind. Since my perception is a mirror that reflects my state of mind, if my state of mind changes, my perception will change. 

 

I look around me this morning and feel both good and dissatisfied. Some of what I see directly effects some spiritual changes I have experienced recently giving me more peace. However, I see that not all my thoughts have been healed, not because they cannot be healed, I just have not let these grievances be brought to the Light for healing. I am comforted knowing that perception is a mirror and not a fact. I am not stuck with these unhealed areas in my life. I can give them to the Holy Spirit for healing, I have seen the results of doing so.

 

The world I see will always show me which thought system I have aligned with. If I want happiness, if I want the joy and peace of God, I only need to align with the Holy Spirit. With my willingness to join Him comes the vision to see the innocent face of Christ in all my brothers and sisters. From this sight I remember my own innocence.

 

 

 

 

Holy One, 

 

Today I dedicate once again to practice letting the Holy Spirit guide my thoughts, words, and actions. I will not lead, but only follow and learn to see with forgiving eyes and recognize the Christ in all. Holy Spirit, I have wandered far from Home and have become lost in illusions of being separate from my brothers, sisters, and my Source. Under Your gentle guidance, I will return to my true natural state. I will follow; I will not lead. You are always there in my mind as I am willing to quiet my mind and open to Your voice. Your peace is waiting to fill me overflowing with the Love, joy and the peace of God. I turn to You now with an open mind. I accept Your presence and Your gifts. I bring every concern or fear to You and open my mind to Your healing Light. I am grateful to know that truth is true and nothing else is true. I am grateful to remember that only Love is real. I am grateful for being shown what is real in every circumstance. I am grateful to let my mind be healed. Today, Holy Spirit guide me and lead me from darkness to light, to truth. Thank you Holy Spirit for your patience and your Love, and for your gentle hand that guides me Home. Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.

 

 

Wishing each of you the Deepest Peace, 

 

Ryan
