Each day, we make a choice to live in love or be controlled by our ego mind and live in fear. For every situation, we make a choice. We can choose to see the purity of the situation or circumstance surrounding us. In this lesson, we are encouraged to live, love and see in the purity that the holy vision of God provides. Blink, clear your eyes and see in love.
My holy vision sees all things as pure.
Father, Your Mind created all that is, Your Spirit entered into it, Your Love gave life to it. And would I look upon what You created as if it could be made sinful? I would not perceive such dark and fearful images. A madman's dream is hardly fit to be my choice, instead of all the loveliness with which You blessed creation; all its purity, its joy, and its eternal, quiet home in You.
And while we still remain outside the gate of Heaven, let us look on all we see through holy vision and the eyes of Christ. Let all appearances seem pure to us, that we may pass them by in innocence, and walk together to our Father's house as brothers and the holy Sons of God.
Quote of the Day
"The ego is our mind's endless need to attack itself. And how do we escape this? Through the acceptance of God's will as our own. God's will is that we be happy. God's will is that we forgive ourselves. God's will is that we find our place in Heaven now."
