Being Determined to See Love’s Presence

³You want salvation. ⁴You want to be happy. ⁵You want peace. ⁶You do not have them now, because your mind is totally undisciplined, and you cannot distinguish between joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, love and fear. ⁷You are now learning how to tell them apart. ⁸And great indeed will be your reward.

Your decision to see is all that vision requires. ²What you want is yours. …⁶God has one Son, and he is the resurrection and the life. ⁷His will is done because all power is given him in Heaven and on earth. ⁸In your determination to see is vision given you.

…as you repeat the idea [I am determined to see], you are stating that you are determined to change your present state for a better one, and one you really want.

³The extra repetitions should be applied to any situation, person or event that upsets you. ⁴You can see them differently, and you will. ⁵What you desire you will see. ⁶Such is the real law of cause and effect as it operates in the world. (A Course in Miracles, W-20.2;3:1-2,6-8;4:3;5:3-6. See also ACIM Lesson 20 Insights.)

True vision cannot be seen with the body’s eyes. Determination to see means we do not want to give any meaning to what the body’s eyes see. We are determined to focus on the vision that shows us the Love in which we live. This vision shows our unity with our brothers and our Creator, because Love is one. Our determination to see is our commitment to disregard the dream of separation and welcome awareness that we are Love and nothing else.

In any situation where our peace of mind is disturbed today, we remind ourselves that we are determined to see Love’s presence. We are willing to accept help to let go of our mistaken focus. We want to know that we are Love.
