The instructions for this review period give us a central theme to contemplate each day. That theme is:
My mind holds only what I think with God.
The instructions go on to say, “That is a fact, and represents the truth of what you are and What your Father is.”
This means that what our mind holds is what we are, and what our mind holds is what God is. So if we want to find our Self, and if we want to find God, we must look for what our mind holds. What our mind holds is always present. Therefore, our search for God is also the search for what is always present.
Here is my contemplation of today’s review lessons with that thought in mind:
In quiet I receive God’s Word today. All of the thoughts that come and go in my consciousness are not God’s Word, because God’s Word is the Word, that which is before everything. In order to know God’s Word, I must look beyond all of the words that distract from it. I must enter into the quiet, where God’s Word is known; not heard, but known. God’s Word is not other than my Self. In quiet, I realize that today.
All that I give is given to myself. Why do my thoughts appear so mesmerizing, those words that are temporary and are not the eternal Word of God? If I close my eyes and look, I find only one power that infuses thought with power. That power is my attention. I am the power that infuses thought with apparent power. All that I give attention to, I give to myself. The question then becomes, what do I want to give attention to? That is the same as asking, what do I want to have power over me?
