Today’s lesson begins with, “What has been given you? The knowledge that you are a mind, in Mind and purely mind, …” Mind is synonymous with consciousness, awareness or life-presence.
The lesson is very clear that you cannot give truth. Truth simply is, and as such, it is beyond what can be given. Our concern is with vision. This we can learn, and this we can extend through practicing it.
The lesson tells us that true vision has one law. It does not look upon a body and mistake it for truth. It beholds life-presence, which is “beyond what can be touched, a purity undimmed by errors, pitiful mistakes, and fearful thoughts of guilt from dreams of sin.” We are also told that vision sees no separation. That’s because vision knows there is only one life. “And it looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and all events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees.”
As you come across people today, regardless of whether you meet them in person, over the phone, on the Internet or you simply think of them, take a moment to acknowledge them as the same life that you are. Take a moment to appreciate the life that we are. Every person provides an opportunity to practice and extend this remembrance. Life is always present and available to be seen, regardless of … whatever.
