My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world
This is the first idea we have had which is related to a major phase of the correction process: the reversal of the thinking of the world. It seems as if the world determines what you perceive. Today’s idea introduces the concept that your thoughts determine the world you see. It will take a great deal of practice to believe this idea. Be glad indeed to practice it in this initial form, for in this idea is your release made sure. The key to forgiveness lies in it.
The practice periods for today’s idea are to be undertaken somewhat differently from the previous ones. Begin with eyes closed, and repeat the idea slowly to yourself. Then open your eyes and look about, near or far, up or down-anywhere. During the minute or so to be spent in practicing the idea, merely repeat to yourself, being sure to do so without haste, and with no sense of urgency or effort.
To do the exercises for maximum benefit, the eyes should move from one thing to another fairly rapidly, since they should not linger on anything in particular. The words, however, should be used in an unhurried, even leisurely fashion. The idea should be practiced as casually as possible. It contains the foundation for the peace, relaxation, and freedom from worry that we are trying to achieve. On concluding the exercises, close your eyes and repeat the idea once more, slowly, to yourself.
Three practice periods today will probably be sufficient. If there is little or no uneasiness and an inclination to do more, as many as five may be undertaken. More than this is not recommended.
Personal Notes: My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world. The first paragraph of this lesson says, be glad indeed to practice this idea for with it our release is made sure. So I put this to practice, beginning, ending and throughout the day to pause, and listen to my thoughts, look around examine what I think my eyes see, identifying the meaningless, releasing these things, if they are not true, not eternal, then they are meaningless and of no worth to me but to clutter my mind and block my true vision in Christ Jesus. First paragraph also ending in, this being the key to forgiveness. When we identify the mirages, the nothingness, how could there be grievances against ourselves, others, or the world. How could there be anything but continually walking in the receiving and giving of forgiveness. Flowing in the rhythms of The Grace of God, powered and led of Holy Spirit. Stating in paragraph three, This contains the foundation for the Peace, Relaxation, and Freedom from worry that we are trying to achieve. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend.
