"I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing."
PRACTICE SUMMARYExercise: 3 or 4 times, for 1 minute or so (or even less).
- Look about you, randomly selecting subjects and resting your glance on each one long enough to say: "I am not alone in experiencing the effects of how I see______."
- Conclude by repeating the idea.
COMMENTARYThe concept that "minds are joined" is easy to grasp, but literally far-reaching in its implications. How I see things affects other minds, not just my own. The miracles that the Course can bring into our lives will prove this to us time and time again. A shift in the way I see things can bring about miraculous effects in people around me.
A miracle is never lost. It may touch many people you have not even met, and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are not even aware (T-1.I.45).
The fact that how I see things affects more than just myself makes the thoughts that give rise to my seeing even more important. How I think and perceive things affects, quite literally, the entire world. By opening my mind to love I can be a conduit of love for the world.
