Translating What the Body Sees

Father, Christ’s vision is Your gift to me, and it has power to translate all that the body’s eyes behold into the sight of a forgiven world. How glorious and gracious is this world! Yet how much more will I perceive in it than sight can give. The world forgiven signifies Your Son acknowledges his Father, lets his dreams be brought to truth, and waits expectantly the one remaining instant more of time which ends forever, as Your memory returns to him. And now his will is one with Yours. His function now is but Your Own, and every thought except Your Own is gone.

The quiet of today will bless our hearts, and through them peace will come to everyone. Christ is our eyes today. And through His sight we offer healing to the world through Him, the holy Son whom God created whole; the holy Son whom God created one. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 270, W-pII.270. See also ACIM Lesson 270 Insights.)

What we see with the body’s eyes is like what we hear when someone is speaking a foreign language. We hear the sounds, but do not understand what they mean. To understand we need a translator. Likewise we do not understand what the body’s eyes see. We need to refer everything we see to the Translator in our mind, Christ’s vision. This vision translates by showing us what lies beyond the surface images in the dream.

To our true Self, the images have no meaning of their own, but the Love that is beyond the images is all meaning. When the images appear to be fearful or guilty, Christ’s vision sees them as calls for Love and offers Love’s vision to translate the calls for Love. This translation inspires us to respond with Love in a form that is meaningful in the dream.

Today we dedicate to letting all that we see be translated through Christ’s vision.
