Miracles are seen in light

It is important to remember that miracles and vision necessarily go together. This needs repeating, and frequent repeating. It is a central idea in your new thought system, and the perception that it produces. The miracle is always there. Its presence is not caused by your vision; its absence is not the result of your failure to see. It is only your awareness of miracles that is affected. You will see them in the light; you will not see them in the dark.

What you are shown in today’s lesson is crucial: the miracle is always there. When you do not experience a miracle, it is because you are unaware. Miracles are seen in light, they can’t be seen in the dark.

To you, then, light is crucial. While you remain in darkness, the miracle remains unseen. Thus you are convinced it is not there.

You do not realize how much you have been stumbling around in darkness, until the light hits you. This happens by your request. Your mind is all powerful and God will not go against your will. Be satisfied with littleness, and so it will be for you. But all the while grandeur is your inheritance, miracles are all around you, yet you can’t see it. What is your way out? Asking for help and showing a little willingness by applying today’s lesson.

Three times today, set aside about ten minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind. This is accomplished very simply, as you instruct yourself that you are not a body. Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly. Your will remains your teacher, and your will has all the strength to do what it desires. You can escape the body if you choose. You can experience the strength in you.

Miracles are seen in light.
The body’s eyes do not perceive the light.
But I am not a body. What am I?

It is by asking this question, by vacating your mind for a moment from every idea about yourself and your brother, that the answer can be given you. Ralph Waldo Emerson says it beautifully:

Our being is descending into us from we know not whence.

The experience of God is given you, the awareness of miracles and light is given you, it descends into you. It is not through your doing, it is only by your request. The only thing you have to offer is your awareness that you don’t know anything. In that, all things are revealed to you.

I am not weak, but strong.
I am not helpless, but all powerful.
I am not limited, but unlimited.
I am not doubtful, but certain.
I am not an illusion, but a reality.
I cannot see in darkness, but in light.

Miracles are seen in light.
