I see nothing as it is now.
What we call “seeing” is an attempt to cut (shatter) what is Whole, Complete, Perfect and One.
You “see” what-is-Whole through a lens that shows you a shattered existence, much like using a kaleidoscope as a looking glass. You have convinced yourself that each different color, shape and angle is a sane reflection of reality. You have assigned meaning where there is none. This meaning allows you to organize parts of what you see, while other parts defy meaning.
The importance that you have assigned to some parts of what you see, is different than the importance you have assigned to other parts that you see. This seeming importance distracts you from questioning the lie of differences, distinctions and separation.
The mean and its assigned importance is taught to you in your past. This is why you see nothing as it is now.
This is upsetting because, in your mind is buried the recognition of Truth, which is known to you as wholeness and completeness (Oneness). There are no parts in this Oneness. You are upset but are not fully aware of this upset because it is like a constant, dull pain that you would only recognize when it is absent.
Actual seeing occurs outside of time and space. Actual seeing, notices differences but finds them unimportant like the boundaries of a shadow falling across a leaf. The shadow does not cut the leaf that it falls across. The cutting of the leaf can only be true, if the difference between the shaded and unshaded area is of significance.
There is no “significance” in Oneness.
The purpose of this blog is to assist you with deepening into A Course In Miracles by clarifying the Course concept of Oneness.
