Lesson 269 My Sight Goes Forth to Look Upon Christ’s Face.

PART II.  SECTION 5:  WHAT IS THE BODY?

Lesson 269 My Sight Goes Forth To Look Upon Christ’s Face.

  1. I ask Your blessing on my sight today.  It is the means which You have chosen to become the way to show me my mistakes and look beyond them.  It is given me to find a new perception through the Guide You gave to me, and through His lessons to surpass perception and return to truth.  I ask for the illusion which transcends all those I made.  Today I choose to see a world forgiven, in which everyone shows me the face of Christ, and teaches me that what I look upon belongs to me; that nothing is, except Your holy Son.
  2. Today our sight is blessed indeed.  We share one vision, as we look upon the face of Him Whose Self is ours.  We are one because of Him Who is the Son of God; of Him Who is our own Identity.

When our heavenly Father blesses our sight today, we have the means to see our mistakes, our illnesses, and despair, and look past them. Holy Spirit, our God-given Guide gives us a new perception and leads us to truth. He gives us the illusion that transcends all illusions in that we forgive the world. In that forgiven world everyone shows me the face of Christ. We are one face, one Sonship, one Brotherhood, the holy Son of God.

It is a beautiful day, and unlike the blind man in the video above, we can see it as such with God’s blessing upon our vision today. Our sight goes forth to look upon the face of Christ today. It is the face of reconciliation. It is the face of offering forgiveness to keep forgiveness. It is the face of warm reunions, happy embraces, and tender recollections. It is the face of polka dot dreams, meetings of the mind, and letting bygones be bygones. It is the face of mutuality, invulnerability, and love. Let us look upon the face of Christ today and be one.

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.
