Part 1

Undoing The Way We See Things Now

Lesson 147

My Mind Holds Only What I Think With God.

1.  (133) I will not value what is valueless.

2.  (134) Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.[1]

[1] A Course in Miracles Complete & Annotated Edition.

Personal Notes:

“I will not value what is valueless.” You do not ask too much of life, but far too little. When you let your mind be drawn to bodily concerns, to things you buy, to eminence as valued by the world, you ask for sorrow, not for happiness. This course does not attempt to take from you the little you have. It does not try to substitute utopian ideas for satisfactions that the world contains. There are no satisfactions in the world. If you choose a thing that will not last forever, what you choose is valueless. What fades and dies was never there, and makes no offering to him who chooses it. He is deceived by nothing in a form he thinks he likes. All things are valuable or valueless. Complexity is nothing but a screen of smoke which hides the very simple fact that no decision can be difficult. “I will not value what is valueless, and only what has value do I seek, for only that do I desire to find. “Let me perceive forgiveness as it is. The twisted view of what salvation means is easily corrected when you can accept the fact that pardon is not asked for what is true. It must be limited to what is false. It is irrelevant to everything except illusions. Forgiveness is the only thing that stands for truth in the illusions of the world. It sees their nothingness, and looks right through the thousand forms in which they may appear. It looks on lies, but it is not deceived. It does not heed the self-accusing shrieks of sinners mad with guilt. It looks on them with quiet eyes, and merely says to them, “My brother, what you think is not the truth.” “Let me perceive forgiveness as it is. Should I accuse myself of doing this? I will not lay this chain upon myself. No one is crucified alone, and yet no one can enter Heaven by Himself.” I continue to pray for all my brothers 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!
