Lesson 263 My Holy Vision Sees All Things As Pure

PART II.  SECTION 5:  WHAT IS THE BODY?

Lesson 263 My Holy Vision Sees All Things As Pure

  1. Father, Your Mind created all that is.  Your Spirit entered into it; Your Love gave life to it.  And would I look upon what You created as if it could be made sinful?  I would not perceive such dark and fearful images.  A madman’s dream is hardly fit to be my choice, instead of all the loveliness with which You blessed creation; all its purity, its joy, and its eternal, quiet home in You.
  2. And while we still remain outside the gate of Heaven, let us look on all we see through holy vision and the eyes of Christ.  Let all appearances seem pure to us that we may pass them by in innocence, and walk together in our Father’s house as brother and the holy Sons of God.

How do we see all things as pure when the world around us rages and whirls with fear and terror?  The rapists, and killers, the psychopaths, and bums, the drug dealers and human traffickers – are we really called to see them as pure?  Who are we kidding? 

And yet Jesus calls us to use our holy vision where we do see all things as pure.  As the Sons of God begin to use their holy vision, the holy vision itself becomes a reality – we see past the false perceptions of this world’s messengers.  Our real eyes, our holy innocent eyes, not bamboozled with the framework of fear, guilt, and shame on which the ego world is founded and maintained, perceives with love.   

 Am I supposed to walk through this life wearing rose-colored glasses, in a la-la land of love and joy and peace while the world around me is fraught with starvation, floods, fires, and war?  Please illuminate me Holy Spirit I asked.  Show me what this means and give me the means to use holy vision.

Holy Spirit showed me that it is a choice to use my holy vision.  I ask for it, and I choose it. Using holy vision, I bring love and joy and peace to all situations.  Walking in innocence means that we walk with intentions of genuine helpfulness.  We do not promote more violence, shame, guilt, and sorrow by buying into what this world’s messengers tell us is happening to God’s Creation, but instead use our holy vision to look beyond it and make it pure.  Of course, we see what is going on about us, but instead of promoting more hatred and punishment, we look upon all that is wrong as a mistake that can be corrected.  An error, a misinterpretation, a perverted call for love, a stark example of the effects of separation – whatever it may be is a call for holy vision.  Instead of gossiping and casting judgment, we offer healing, hope, and restoration. 

Few of us are willing to take this stand against the nightmare world.  When the ego’s messengers are screaming, “Kill, kill, kill,” the Voice for God is quietly urging us to “Forgive, heal, mend.” 

Father, let us learn to use our holy vision.  Let us see all things with the understanding that this is just the nightmare world of separation from You.  Give us holy vision, so we then walk in purity and innocence past all the madman’s dreams of Your Creation and the holy Sons of God.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
