And Yesterday we had a family barbeque which was very nice,.. We all ate and talked all day long. We kept having to force the kids to play outside. Because they all wanted to sit on the couch.. "NO go outside its not raining its warm enough!"
Lesson 7 (I'm one day behind) "I see only the past." Taken from the Course in Miracles - workbook for students.
Description: It says this idea is hard to believe. But it is why nothing that you see means anything. It is why you have given everything the meaning that it has for you. It is why you do not understand anything you see. And it is why you are upset because you see something that is not there. It talks a lot about time You really need to read the book if you are trying to do this. It is fascinating. You need to go around the room and acknowledge that you see only the past in each item you see.
My interpretation: It is trying to teach us that time is not as perceived and our reality really isn't what we think it is. So by slowly deconstructing some of our basic ideas about what we are experiencing, we will ultimately find our real connection to god, as the lessons proceed.
A final note on this - if any of this makes you very upset or uncomfortable you may want to get the book and do it at your own pace. Its taken me 11 years to get comfortable with this. Or even start with the introduction book.
