In this review lesson, you are encouraged to acknowledge the light of the world in you. As you live in this light, you rid yourself of darkness and choose to see. Seeing with the light within, you realize your salvation is not outside of yourself, but inside.
Today's review will cover these ideas:
My grievances hide the light of the world in me.
My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see. Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. To see, I must lay grievances aside. I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.
Specific applications for this idea might be made in these forms:
Today I will recognize where my salvation is. It is in me because its Source is there. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. I will not look for it outside myself. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.
These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific applications:
"Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all."
