Review Lessons 137-138
As we practice the lessons in the Workbook for Students let us remember that Jesus is helping us to restore our gift of Spiritual sight. He is helping us to remember that there is another way of seeing. We can learn how to see through the other part of our mind that has been kept hidden from us by the ego thought system. Everything we see through the body’s eyes is part of the ego thought system. When we see a person we are not seeing what God created, we are seeing what the ego thought system made, an image of a body. The body is not really there but we think it is because we think we can see it, feel it, smell it, etc. Imagine that, the ego thought system seems to have manifested thoughts into physical reality that gives us the illusion of seeing, feeling, smelling and hearing things that really aren’t showing the truth about who we really are and where we came from. And then to make things a little more difficult, the ego thought system gives us the illusion that we have forgotten who we are and where we are right now in Reality.
