ACIM Lesson 28: Above all else I want to see things differently.

Above all else I want to see things differently.

This is a more specific application of yesterday’s idea.

It is also a continuation of Lessons 7 – I see only the past, Lesson 8 – My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts and, Lesson 9 – I see nothing as it is now.

I do not want to ‘see’ based on my historic thoughts about a particular thing.

Lesson 28 invites me to stop defining the objects and people in my life in past terms. In Ho’oponopono this is ‘Ihaleakalā reminding me that when the data is playing I see with ‘old’ eyes, but what I really want is to see with the eyes of Divinity.

Looking at the world through data is like wearing sunglasses. As soon as I take them off, everything becomes bright and clear.

So, because at the physical level I see myself as separate from everything and everyone around me, I am not really seeing at all.

But if I am willing to see people and things with an open mind and attempt to understand the true purpose of why they are here I can begin to draw back the veil on the universe.

Hidden under all the data and memories I have about the objects and people in my life are their real purposes and if I can get to the point where I can see the real purpose of something as innocuous as a table, I can just as easily see the purpose of the universe.

That’s something worth thinking about!

So today, I will remind myself that:

Above all, I want to see this [table] differently

… and then repeat to it the key phrases of Ho’oponopono.

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. I’m grateful.

I’ll repeat this process with a whole variety of people and things.

Today, I am trying to see the universe. Wish me luck!

“Above all else I want to see things differently. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, I’m grateful.”
