I will not use the body’s eyes today.
Father, Christ’s vision is Your gift to me, and it has power to translate all that the body’s eyes behold into the sight of a forgiven world. How glorious and gracious is this world! Yet how much more will I perceive in it than sight can give. The world forgiven signifies Your Son acknowledges his Father, lets his dreams be brought to truth, and waits expectantly the one remaining instant more of time which ends forever, as Your memory returns to him. And now his will is one with Yours. His function now is but Your Own, and every thought except Your Own is gone.
The quiet of today will bless our hearts, and through them peace will come to everyone. Christ is our eyes today. And through His sight we offer healing to the world through Him, the holy Son whom God created whole, the holy Son whom God created one.
In my attempt to do my Morning Pages, washing, and make breakfast, I didn’t leave enough time to do the lesson before leaving homr. At about 11 o’clock my mobile phone developed a fault. It would not allow me to hear what people were saying when they called me. They could hear me, but I couldn’t hear them.
When I got home at about 4 p.m. I hastily looked through the lesson, just so I’d be able to talk about it at the group tonight. It didn’t make much sense to me immediately, and I didn’t have time to decipher the convoluted language of the first paragraph. I quickly got on with cooking dinner, and looking up on the internet the possible solution to my phone problem. I couldn’t find it.
It was only at the end of the group meeting when someone read the lesson, that I really heard the second paragraph. ‘The quiet of today will bless our hearts.’ I was being given enforced quiet, and I was pleased that I’d accepted the situation without complaint. This was probably due, in part, to the massive breakthrough I had while writing my Morning Pages. I realised what the novel needed to make it more exciting, I got a lot more ideas and can’t wait to incorporate them. So… I’m about to show up to write.
