Unless I look upon what is not there, my present happiness is all I see. Eyes that begin to open see at last. And I would have Christ’s vision come to me this very day. What I perceive without God’s Own Correction for the sight I made is frightening and painful to behold. Yet I would not allow my mind to be deceived by the belief the dream I made is real an instant longer. This the day I seek my present happiness, and look on nothing else except the thing I seek.
When your awakening is all you want, when you are determined to see things differently, everything you need is given you. This is the simplicity of cause and effect. Now everything you encounter, everything you see or hear, every person you meet, is a chance for you to let things be new. You have been told in A Course In Miracles that you are dreaming and today you declare that you no longer will allow your mind to be deceived by the dream you made, you will no longer pretend that the dream has any reality. True happiness is offered you today, it is a happiness that is in you, that has always been in you, and that you could not experience because it was so heavily covered with the illusions of a dream that was never real. Today you ask for happiness, for your present happiness, and you choose to look on nothing else.
With this resolve I come to You, and ask Your strength to hold me up today, while I but seek to do Your Will. You cannot fail to hear me, Father. What I ask have You already given me. And I am sure that I will see my happiness today.
