There is a light in you the world can not perceive. And with its eyes you will not see this light, for you are blinded by the world. Yet you have eyes to see it. It is there for you to look upon. It was not placed in you to be kept hidden from your sight. This light is a reflection of the thought we practice now. To feel the Love of God within you is to see the world anew, shining in innocence, alive with hope, and blessed with perfect charity and love.
Beautiful lesson. There is a light in you that the world can’t perceive, because it can’t be seen with the body’s eyes. It can be experienced, and this requires a little willingness to have an open mind. This course is an experience, it can’t be understood within your limited thought framework. Practice the lesson every day and let it work in you. Every lesson offers you the totality of an experience that is not of this world. And then… you go beyond it all together.
Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed. Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.
It’s beautiful because it is so simple and so personal. This is between you and God. It is an experience, not a study of concepts. You feel the Love of God within you and extend it to the world, so that you may remember that you have it.
