Part 1 Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 10

My thoughts do not mean anything.

This idea applies to all the thoughts of which you are aware, or of which you become aware in the practice periods. The reason the idea is applicable to all of them is that they are not your real thoughts. We have made this distinction before, and will again. You have no basis for comparison as yet. When you do, you will have no doubt that what you once believed were your thoughts did not mean anything.

This is the second time we have used this kind of idea. The form is only slightly different. This time the idea is introduced with “My thoughts” instead of “These thoughts”, and no link is made overtly with the things around you. The emphasis is now on the lack of reality of what you think you think.

This aspect of the correction process began with the idea that the thoughts of which you are aware are meaningless, outside rather than within; and then stressed their past rather than present status. Now we are emphasizing that the presence of these thoughts means that you are not thinking. This is merely another way of repeating our earlier statement that your mind is really blank. To recognize this is to recognize nothingness when you think you see it. As such, it is the prerequisite for vision.

Close your eyes for these exercises, and introduce them by repeating the idea for today quite slowly to yourself. Then add:

This idea will help to release me from all that I now believe.

The exercises consist, as before, in searching your mind for all the thoughts which are available to you, without selection or judgement. Try to avoid classification of any kind. In fact, if you are watching an oddly assorted procession going by, which has little if any personal meaning to you. As each one crosses your mind, say:

This thought about__________does not mean anything.

That thought about__________does not mean anything.

Today’s idea can obviously serve for any thought that distresses you at anytime. In addition, five practice periods are recommended, each involving no more than a minute or so of mind searching. It is not recommended that this time period be extended, and it should be reduced to half a minute or even less if you experience discomfort. Remember, however, to repeat the idea slowly before applying it specifically, and also to add:

This idea will help to release me from all that I now believe.

Personal Notes: We are on day 10 of Undoing the Way We See Things Now. Learning to distinguish when our minds are blank, being that the thoughts we imagined there, were of no meaning. To identify this will release me from all I now believe. Clearing out the mind for a new way of thinking with the mind of Jesus. Inviting Holy Spirit to teach, lead, and guide this process of renewing the mind to original state of God’s Masterpiece. I am thankful God gives us the Will and Will Power to do this, not ever alone but in Him, to Him, through Him. Stated in (Romans 8:26-The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.) We are never alone in this renewal process, Holy Spirit is always “On Call”. Let us brother’s continue to encourage ourselves and each other, that productive , creative, fruitful thinking is attainable. With God All things are Possible. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend.
