Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 85

Today’s review will cover these ideas:

1. (69) My grievances hide the light of the world in me.

     My grievances show me what is not there and hide from me what I would see. Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. To see, I must lay grievances aside. I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.

2. Specific applications of the idea might be made in forms like these:

Let me not use this as a block to sight.

The light of the world can shine all this away.

I have no need for this. I want to see.

3. (70) My salvation comes from me.

     Today I will recognize where me salvation is. It is in me because its Source is there. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. Today I will not look for it outside myself. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.

4. These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific application:

Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation.

I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the source of my salvation.

This has no power to remove salvation from me.[1]

Personal Notes:

“My grievances hide the light of the world in me.” Because grievances hide the light of the world everyone stands in darkness with me beside him. But as the veil of my grievances is lifted, my brother and I will be released from the hell we made possible in darkness. I choose love, peace and joy over grievances. My salvation and the salvation of the world is much too precious a gift to throw away for grievances that are only an illusion which has No Truth in it to begin with. Salvation is our only need. There is no other purpose here and no other function to fulfill. Let us end the search today by finding the light in us and holding it up for everyone who searches with us to look upon and rejoice. “My salvation comes from me.” All temptation is nothing more than some form of the basic temptation to believe salvation, guilt and pain comes from someone or something outside of my-Self. My source of salvation lives in me. As nothing outside my-Self can give me peace, this also means nothing outside my-Self can hurt or disturb my peace or upset me in any way. Today I will practice remembering that God’s Will and mine are the same. He wants us to be healed and we do not really want to be sick, because it makes us unhappy. In accepting the idea for today we are in agreement with God. He does not want us to be sick. Neither do we. He wants us to be healed. So do we. Today I practice going through the clouds of illusions, lies, darkness to the Light of my Salvation. Nothing outside me can hold me back. Within me is the worlds salvation and my own. I pray for all my brothers, sisters, and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!

God is Love

Love is God

I choose Love
