A Course In Miracles – My THOUGHTS Are IMAGES Which I Have Made.

So, here I am, on the road. We have packed up all our stuff and are in transit from Wisconsin to Australia. I fully understand that moving is not going to solve my problem. I thought I would have a look, again, at one of my favourite lessons. Because it seems to be different dealing with Minds that are still asleep then with Minds that are at least, in some way, sick and tied of dealing with the limitation and complete nonsense of the dream.

It is because the thoughts you think you think appear as images that you do not recognize them as nothing. You think you think them, and so you think you see them.”

Best case scenario, your thoughts or the images, are already gone, past, so why not let them go. Worst case you have made them real in your own mind and are now reacting to them as if they are real but forgetting that you, as a construction, have no cause, thus anything you think you see is actually…nothing.

This is how your “seeing”was made. This is the function you have given your body’s eyes. It is not seeing. It is image-making. It takes the place of seeing, replacing vision with illusions.”

So the vision of Reality is available, still. Yet covered over by the veil of past thoughts. Isn’t that strange? So now you are going to have to look at the value you are still placing on your thoughts in order to justify an image, as separate from you. At this point you can throw out the idea that you are the cause of what “he” does because “his” image is already gone. So saying “I am the cause of that school shooting” which is true, but doesn’t really help you because it’s already too late, it’s gone. You have to look at how that is affecting you. Why should illusions, good or bad, have ANY affect on you if they are not real?

You see, that until your mind has truly been changed you are going to be given all sorts of opportunities to come to this realization. And so this is how it is with me, I don’t know what is in store and I am not able to plan ahead. I am left with complete dependency on God because the images are dependencies that WILL let me down, at some point, because they have no cause, in Reality.

As we go along, you may have many “light episodes.” They may take many different forms, some of them quite unexpected. Do not be afraid of them. They are signs that you are opening your eyes at last. They will not persist, because they merely symbolize true perception, and they are not related to knowledge. These exercises will not reveal knowledge to you. But they will prepare the way to it…”

Your Mind is changing and you are beginning to see, for you are in my Mind and that is the Mind we share with God. So even my ideas about “light” start to loose their meaning with that realization, because God’s Grace is EVERYWHERE. When I make application of it…there it is…where ever I find myself.

I am aware I am dreaming. This is a dream. I can take responsibility for it, in it’s entirety, but only for this moment, at that point I am completely relived of it, because it truly has no cause. And I am free, along with you.
