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.

Excerpt from Lesson 290 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


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.
