My present happiness is all I see.
The world that we see with our eyes is not real. It is difficult for us to believe this because we seem to be seeing and doing things everyday. The world seems to offer us many things to do and places to go where we can play. Mail-order catalogs and advertisements entice us with things to buy and do. The colorful ads and the descriptive writings give us the illusion that we need to have these things in order to gain happiness. And we come to believe these things over and over again but only to find in the end that true happiness really wasn’t delivered. It was just a temporary illusion offered by the ego to deceive the Son of God once again.
There is another form of seeing that is available to each and every one of us. There is a light within each and everyone’s mind that we can learn how to see. It is the Light of God and of His world that He will show us if we but desire to see Him with our hearts.
Quiet your mind of all your busy thoughts, close your eyes and observe the dark screen of your mind’s eye for Father to show you the Light of His world. When you wholly desire to see His Light within your mind He will begin to show it to you. First the little sparks, then the stars and the stars begin to blend together into one light, and in the perception of the light happiness is seen and felt. You begin to see and know your Friend in the Light. The Light begins to show you your way Home for miracles are seen in the light.
