The central theme that we are contemplating during this review period is:
My mind holds only what I think with God.
The workbook instructions for the review period say, “It is this thought that fully guarantees salvation to the Son. For in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares. Lack of forgiveness blocks this thought from his awareness. Yet it is forever true.”
This means that when we let our attention dwell with any thought, emotion or desire that is inevitably temporary, or when we let our attention dwell with anything that it cannot dwell on eternally, we block our realization of truth.
With this thought in mind, I contemplate today’s review lessons.
There is no love but God’s. What, then, is love? To discover what love is I must compare human feelings of love, which do not last, to that which is always present. For example, sometimes I think I love something because it brings me pleasure, but pleasure is not constant. Therefore that is not love. Yet I notice beingness or isness is always present. That must be love.
The world I see holds nothing that I want. That’s because the world I see holds nothing. It all comes and goes. Whether I perceive it as grand or totally undesirable, it has the same quality. It is not eternal; it is not held. I seek that which is eternal, that which is held, and I let the temporary be as it is.
