11. What Is Creation?
All Things I Think I See Reflect Ideas.
This is salvation’s keynote. What I see reflects a process in my mind, which starts with my idea of what I want. From there, the mind makes up an image of the things the mind desires, judges valuable, and therefore seeks to find. These images are then projected outward, looked upon, esteemed as real, and guarded as one’s own. From insane wishes comes an insane world. From judgment comes a world condemned. And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him and find the way to Heaven and God.140
2. Our Father, Your ideas reflect the truth, and mine apart from Yours but make up dreams. Let me behold what only Yours reflect, for Yours and Yours alone establish truth.

Footnote 140. Because perception comes from a process of deciding what I want, making images of what I want, and then projection those images and seeing them in the world, I can see two different worlds. Through judgment, I will want to look on images that should be condemned, and they are what I will see. Through forgiveness, I will want to see images of a gentle, merciful world, and that is the world I will see.
All things I think I see reflect ideas. I meditate on above prayer today, and in quiet I wait to hear my Father’s Voice. I pray for all my brothers and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination, of The Way, The Truth, The Life, in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
