I see all things as I would have them be.
Perception follows judgment. Having judged, we therefore see what we would look upon. The sight can merely serve to offer us what we would have. It is impossible to overlook what we would see, and fail to see what we have chosen to behold. How surely, therefore, must the real world come to greet the holy sight of anyone who takes the Holy Spirits purpose as his goal for seeing. And he cannot fail to look upon what Christ would have him see, and share Christ’s Love for what he looks upon.
I have no purpose for today except to look upon a liberated world, set free from all the judgments I have made. Father, this is Your Will for me today, and therefore it must be my goal as well.
Driving to Manchester at 7.30 a.m. with the lesson in my head, I choose to see the bright sunshine bouncing off the bonnets of cars, streaking through trees, and slipping playfully in and out of the clouds, and not notice the cold wind that tried to snuggle under my jacket as I filled up with fuel for the journey.
Once there, I tried not to judge the state of my son’s house, but rather helped him and his housemates to understand the stifling effect dirt and mess can have on their creativity, and helped them clean it up. I believe it was much appreciated. The enormity of the physical cleansing and the academic planning was too great for the time I’d allowed. I need to go back again next week. Feel like I’ve signed up for a course at the university myself!
I heard today that one of my cousins died. My aunt is being buried on Saturday. Later heard of the birth of my friend’s son, the circle of life goes on.
Back in time to make it to ACIM group tonight. LONG DAY!!
