Seeing from Our Right Mind

Do not seek vision through your eyes, for you made your way of seeing that you might see in darkness, and in this you are deceived. ²Beyond this darkness, and yet still within you, is the vision of Christ, Who looks on all in light. ³Your “vision” comes from fear, as His from love. ⁴And He sees for you, as your witness to the real world. ⁵[Christ] is the Holy Spirit’s manifestation, looking always on the real world, and calling forth its witnesses and drawing them to you. ⁶He loves what He sees within you, and He would extend [Love]. ⁷And He will not return unto the Father until He has extended your perception even unto Him. ⁸And [in God] perception is no more, for He has returned you to the Father with Him.

You have but two emotions, and one you made and one was given you. ²Each is a way of seeing, and different worlds arise from their different sights. ³See through the vision that is given you, for through Christ’s vision He beholds Himself. ⁴And seeing what He is, He knows His Father. ⁵Beyond your darkest dreams [Christ] sees God’s guiltless Son within you, shining in perfect radiance that is undimmed by your dreams. ⁶And this you will see as you look with Him, for His vision is His gift of love to you, given Him of the Father for you.

The Holy Spirit is the light in which Christ stands revealed. ²And all who would behold Him can see Him, for they have asked for light. (A Course in Miracles, T-13.V.9:1–11:2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Sometimes when we are surprised by what we see we say, “I can’t believe my eyes.” Truer words were never spoken. Nothing the body’s eyes see is real. All we see in the world is a projection from the part of our mind identified with the ego. Projection makes perception, but it cannot make real. Perception shows us what we believe about ourselves. If we accept the ego thought system, we believe we are separate and see a separate world.

But there is another way of seeing that does not use the body’s eyes at all. This vision comes from our mind united with our Creator. In this unity, it sees only Love, for That is what It is. This is the vision, seen in the Light of Love, that will awaken us to our eternal Home in the Heart of God. We welcome Christ’s vision today, for we want to remember that only Love is real. In this remembrance, we find joy and peace.
