Above all else, I want to see things differently.
<You’ve asked Me for “a little willingness”; and I am willing. In fact, I can’t wait!> That’s the attitude that brings Us results. Do not fear to change Your mind for God has only Good for You!
1 Today we are really giving specific application to the idea for yesterday. In these practice periods, you will be making a series of definite commitments. The question of whether you will keep them in the future is not our concern here. If you are willing at least to make them now, you have started on the way to keeping them. Why is this? Because the Father and the Son must share the very same intention: It’s Your happiness. And we are still at the beginning. And Good awaits You.
2 You may wonder why it is important to say, for example, “Above all else I want to see this table differently.” In itself it is not important at all. Yet what is by itself? And what does “in itself” mean? You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all. This means nothing now. Yet You will understand that All is but one cohesive Whole. Just let the words rest in Your mind; no need to comprehend them. Comprehension comes unexpectedly. You either see or not. When you have seen one thing differently, you will see all things differently. The light you will see in any one of them is the same light you will see in them all. The Substance of all things visually – including You – is Light. This is a beautiful experience, and it never ends.
3 When you say, “Above all else I want to see this table differently,” you are making a commitment to withdraw your preconceived ideas about the table and open your mind to what it is and what it is for. You are not defining it in past terms. This is the little willingness I ask. And You’re giving it. You are asking what it is, rather than telling it what it is. You are not binding its meaning to your tiny experience of tables, nor are you limiting its purpose to your little personal thoughts. There is a whole other way of thinking, which is a never-static Knowing coming straight from God. It is a very different use of Your mind.
4 You will not question what we have already defined. And the purpose of these exercises is to ask questions and receive the answers. In saying, “Above all else I want to see this table differently,” you are committing yourself to seeing. You are allowing for a different kind of Vision to illuminate Your mind. It is not an exclusive commitment, to just one object. It is a commitment which applies to the table just as much as to anything else, neither more nor less. A new – a lovely – way to experience the Universe.
5 You could, in fact, gain vision from just that table if you could withdraw all your own ideas from it and look upon it with a completely open mind. It has something to show you-something beautiful and clean and of infinite value, full of happiness and hope. It holds Life’s Reality for You, if You will to see It. Hidden under all your ideas about it is its real purpose, the purpose it shares with all the universe. How glorious is God’s holy Purpose; joy-filled for every One and every Thing.
6 In using the table as a subject for applying the idea for today, you are therefore really asking to see the purpose of the universe. You will be making this same request of each subject which you use in the practice periods. And you are making a commitment to each of them to let their purpose be revealed to you instead of placing your own judgment upon them. All things are Good inherently, despite dreaming misconceptions. It is this Good as everything which We intend to see.
7 We will have six two minute practice periods today in which the idea for the day is stated first and then applied to whatever you see in looking about you. Not only should the subjects be chosen randomly, but each one should be accorded equal sincerity as today’s idea is applied to it in an attempt to acknowledge the equal value of them all in their contribution to your seeing. Only the dream has inequality.
8 As usual, the applications should include the name of the subject which your eyes happen to light on, and you should rest your eyes on it while saying:
9 Above all else, I want to see this ______ differently. God so gently answers Your desires; the sweetness of His Love so comforting. For You are so very precious to Him.
