A Course In Oneness Blog
Instructions below *
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. Even so, you recognize that you are in pain. Because of this pain, there is a willingness to let go of painful judgments. Your commitment to this Course is also evidence that you have not completely deceived yourself.
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.”
The purpose of this blog is to assist you with deepening into A Course In Miracles by clarifying the Course concept of Oneness.
