Miracles are seen in light.

You say: “I see the Light!” What You mean is: “Now I understand!”  Just so it is with miracles brought by Your understanding of the Love of God.  For His Love, Itself, is a miracle.  A Gift of Love for You and Every One.  Rejoice then, in every evidence of Love You see for it speaks to You of an eternal Goodness that is everywhere; even here in the dream.

1 It is important to remember that miracles and vision necessarily go together. This needs repeating and frequent repeating. It is a central idea in your new thought system and the perception which it produces. The miracle is always there. – For the miracle is but Reality standing waiting for Your willingness but to receive it. – Its presence is not caused by your vision; its absence is not the result of your failure to see. It is only your awareness of miracles that is affected. You will see it in the light; you will not see it in the dark.

The question is: In what realm are You using Your vision?  In the make-believe realm of the ego or as Reality?  The territory of Your mind usurped by the ego is dark indeed.  It is quite hard to see there.

2 To you, then, light is crucial. – Illumination by the Holy Spirit is the Light that is crucial to You. – While you remain in darkness, the miracle remains unseen. Thus you are convinced it is not there. – For Your trust in Good has been usurped too. – This follows from the premises from which the darkness comes. Denial of light leads to failure to perceive it. – When You do not believe that It is there, You cannot see It. – Failure to perceive light is to perceive darkness. The light is useless to you then, even though it is there. You cannot use it because its presence is unknown to you. – You have rendered it inoperable for You, quite deliberately at first, and now You have forgotten that the Light was ever present for You. – And the seeming reality of the darkness makes the idea of light meaningless.

Some sort of myth, made up by foolish minds just like the belief that there is a God.  What a childish fancy, rants the ego.

3 To be told that what you do not see is there sounds like insanity. It is very difficult to become convinced that it is insanity not to see what is there and to see what is not there instead. – You have it all quite backward. Like a poor learner, yet You can be on Your way to being a better one. – You do not doubt that the body’s eyes can see. You do not doubt the images they show you are reality. Your faith lies in the darkness, not the light.

You simply need the proper Teacher to correct You.  Listen:

4 How can this be reversed? For you it is impossible, but you are not alone in this. – Your belovèd teacher stands right by You. – Your efforts, however little they may be, have strong support. Did you but realize how great this strength, your doubts would vanish. AnyOne can change. – Today we will devote ourselves to the attempt to let you feel this strength. – The Holy Spirit stands right here, ready, willing, able and happy to help You! – When you have felt the strength in you which makes all miracles within your easy reach, you will not doubt. The miracles your sense of weakness hides will leap into awareness as you feel the strength in you.

You will be inundated with the Love and Life of God as It is Be-ing You!

5 Three times today, set aside about ten minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind. This is accomplished very simply, as you instruct yourself that you are not a body. Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly. Your will remains your teacher, and your will has all the strength to do what it desires. You can escape the body if you choose. You can experience the strength in you.

Your experience of Body will be transformed and surprisingly delightful.

6 Begin the longer practice periods with this statement of true cause and effect relationships:

7 Miracles are seen in light.
The body’s eyes do not perceive the light.
But I am not a body. What am I?

Do not fear the answer, but rather wait for it with joyous anticipation.

8 The question with which this statement ends is needed for our exercises today. What you think you are is a belief to be undone. But what you really are must be revealed to you. The belief you are a body calls for correction, being a mistake. The truth of what you are calls on the strength in you to bring to your awareness what the mistake concealed.

9 If you are not a body, what are you? You need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit uses to replace the image of a body in your mind. You need to feel something to put your faith in, as you lift it from the body. You need a real experience of something else, something more solid and more sure, more worthy of your faith, and really there.

10 If you are not a body, what are you? Ask this in honesty, and then devote several minutes to allowing your mistaken thoughts about your attributes to be corrected, and their opposites to take their place. Say, for example:

11 I am not weak, but strong.
I am not helpless, but all powerful.
I am not limited, but unlimited.
I am not doubtful, but certain.
I am not an illusion, but a reality.
I cannot see in darkness, but in light.

12 In the second phase of the exercise period, try to experience these truths about yourself. Concentrate particularly on the experience of strength. Remember that all sense of weakness is associated with the belief you are a body, a belief that is mistaken and deserves no faith. Try to remove your faith from it, if only for a moment. You will become accustomed to keeping faith with the more worthy in you as we go along.

13 Relax for the rest of the practice period, confident that your efforts, however meager, are fully supported by the strength of God and all His Thoughts. It is from Them your strength will come. It is through Their strong support that you will feel the strength in you. They are united with you in this practice period in which you share a purpose like Their own. Theirs is the light in which you will see miracles because Their strength is yours. Their strength becomes your eyes that you may see.

14 Five or six times an hour at reasonably regular intervals remind yourself that miracles are seen in light. Also, be sure to meet temptation with today’s idea. This form would be helpful for this special purpose:

15 Miracles are seen in light. Let me not close my eyes because of this.

Remember: Joyous anticipation!
