A Course in Miracles is a scribed text that has been around since the 1970s.Its success has been phenomenal and have reached around the world. A whole network has been set up with many teachers of the Course writing their own books about their own perspectives of the Course.
‘Nothing that I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place, etc.) has a meaning of its own.’
1.Repeat to yourself the idea above, then look slowly around you and apply this idea very specifically to whatever you see. For example:
‘This table does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘This chair does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘This hand does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘This foot does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘This pen does not have a meaning of its own.’
2.Then look away from your immediate area, and apply the idea to a wider range of objects. For example:
‘That door does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘That body does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘That lamp does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘That sign does not have a meaning of its own.’
‘That shadow does not have a meaning of its own.’
3. Notice that these statements are not arranged in any order, and that they are applied to a wide variety of things; this is the purpose of this exercise. Apply it to anything that you see at random, but do not apply it to everything that you see. These exercises should not become a ritual. Only be sure to not deliberately exclude anything you see. As far as applying this lesson is concerned, one thing is like another.
4. Apply this lesson once in the morning and once in the evening. You should do it for a minute or so, unless this makes you feel rushed. Apply it with a comfortable sense of leisure.
Mentor’s Notes: This lesson teaches you that the physical world that you perceive is neutral; it has no meaning of its own.
