Intro to Lessons 51 – 60

LESSON 52

+++

W-pI.52.1. (6) I am upset because I see what is not there.

There is either Oneness or there is “Something else”. God creates in the mode of Oneness and not in the mode of this world that you perceive. What God created cannot be perceived. Even though “The Real” is not perceptible, “The Real” is what you really are. This is why the experience of “Something else”, must be upsetting.

W-pI.52.2. (7) I see only the past.

As you look upon the world, you must notice difference and separation in all you perceive. You notice that your “current” experience is different from your “past” experience. Because you think that what you look upon is real, you fail to notice the evidence of Oneness shining behind it.

W-pI.52.3. (8) My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.

The meaning of the Oneness of “eternity” is the state if being “outside of time” or timelessness.

Separation must be true, if today is different than tomorrow. In this way, time argues against Oneness. Because you think there are problematic differences between past and present, you are distracted from questioning the lie of separation.

W-pI.52.4. (9) I see nothing as it is now.

You chose to see the “here and now” by comparing it to a different place and in a past moment. This is not possible in Oneness.

W-pI.52.5. (10) My thoughts do not mean anything.

Private means separated which has no meaning in Oneness.

LESSON 51

Course In Oneness Blog

Intro to Lessons 51 – 60

LESSON 51

+++

W-pI.51.1. (1) Nothing I see means anything.

Close your eyes and imagine whatever you like. Think of this as seeing, as you know it. There is a place in your mind that knows that your “eyes” are actually sightless, even though you may be having a vivid experience of “sight”.

W-pI.51.2. (2) I have given what I see all the meaning it has for me.

If you find a reason to be upset with something in this “vivid experience of “sight”, you will ignore your suspicions that your eyes are actually sightless. Your commitment to this Course is evidence that you have not completely deceived yourself. You recognize that you are in pain and because of this, you have a willingness to let go of your judgments.

W-pI.51.3. (3) I do not understand anything I see.

If this were a dream, you would probably not devote so much serious attention to solving the problems that you see within it. This is a dream.

W-pI.51.4. (4) These thoughts do not mean anything.

Only God’s thoughts are real thoughts. God can have no “attention” on (or thought of) the non-existent, (the un-Real). What you call thought is not really thinking. Real thinking is the thinking you think with God. Why must you take “your” thoughts so seriously?

W-pI.51.5. (5) I am never upset for the reason I think.

“Your” thoughts seem to be important but this thinking is not the thinking that you think with God. What you now call “upsetting thoughts” are about “something else” or “someone else”, which cannot be true in Oneness. Further, can you be upset, even with yourself, if there is no witness, victim or judge (all missing in Oneness)?

Your upset-ness is like a loud noise to distract. “… full of sound and fury signifying nothing.”

I am sustained by the Love of God.

Oneness is eternal, it does not change. Multiplicity is the very “shifting sands” of the unreliable.

Intro to Part I

LESSON 48

There is nothing to fear.

+++

The “you” that-you-think-you-are, is the source of all that you fear.

Fear is a separation idea. The feared is your thought of walls, projected “outward”. There must be a separating wall between you who fears and what is feared. There can be no walls in Oneness.

Anything that is not Oneness is illusion, no matter how much you may desire something else. The extent that you recognize that Oneness, only, is true is the same extent that you remember God.

Oneness and God are the same.

LESSON 47

Course In Oneness Blog

Instructions below *

Intro to Part I

LESSON 47

God is the strength in which I trust.

+++

“You” believe the impossible. “You” believe you are a part of the indivisible.

As “you” identify with a part, or a piece, the strength that you identify with is the strength of a part, or a piece. How can this strength be trusted compared to the strength of the whole?

Separation means that you are on your own. Separation means that there are other parts, as you are a part. These other parts must be different if separation is true. One of these other different parts may be bigger or stronger, therefore threat seems possible.

By definition, the “parts” must be unknown to each other else separation must be denied. You feel vulnerable to the unknown part that is potentially bigger or stronger  than the part you identify as “you”.

Strength has no meaning in Oneness. Power is not necessary. There is no such thing as effort. This, however, is not your experience because you do not accept or identify with Oneness.

Fortunately, Oneness remains true if you believe it or not. It is the strength of Oneness that we connect with and rely on in todays practice.

LESSON 46

Course In Oneness Blog

Instructions below *

Intro to Part I

LESSON 46

God is the Love in which I forgive.

+++

If Only-ness (Oneness) is true, only God exists. If Only-ness is true, God=love=forgiveness. Forgiveness is the reminder that Oneness remains true while we seem to live in a separated world.

 

Forgiveness represents the letting-go of the justifications that specialness and distinctions require. It is these justifications that enable you to assert that you really are “set apart” from others and therefore “set apart” from God.

Notice that fear requires that the fearful and that which is feared, be “set apart”.
