There are many wonderful pointers in this lesson. Let’s look at each of them briefly:
“You are entitled to miracles because of what you are.” – Yesterday’s tip encouraged you to ask, “What am I?” Today’s lesson begins by prompting us to look in the same direction. “What am I?”
“You will receive miracles because of what God is.” – God is another word for truth. It’s time to wonder, “What is truth?”
“And you will offer miracles because you are one with God.” – What is a miracle?
The mind wants to be decided about these things. The mind defines you, defines God/truth, and thinks it knows what is and is not a miracle. However, careful observation of the mind reveals the mind is not as sure as it would pretend to be. For example, according to the mind, in one moment you are smart and in another you are stupid. So, which are you? Are you either?
Today’s lesson says, “Your claim to miracles does not lie in your illusions about yourself.” That’s another way of saying that miracles have nothing to do with the mind. Miracles are completely beyond the mind, including beyond mind’s ideas about you, God and miracles. That’s why it is good to ask, “What am I?,” “What is truth?,” and “What is a miracle?” Don’t try to find answers for these questions by thinking about them. That’s staying in the mind. Just ask.
“You have been promised full release from the world you made. You have been assured that the Kingdom of God is within you, and can never be lost. We ask no more than what belongs to us in truth. Today, however, we will also make sure that we will not content ourselves with less.” – Don’t decide what this means. Ask God to show you. Be like a little child that cannot find her own way, but willingly, openly and trustingly takes her parent’s hand and lets it guide her into realization.
“There is no room for doubt and uncertainty today.” – Put the mind aside. Put your illusions about yourself and about God aside. Be innocent, trusting and curious.
“We are asking a real question at last.” – What am I? What is God/truth? What is a miracle? Show me, that I may know.
