Guidance from Elder Brother
as Received and Transcribed by Sun~Rose*
CIMS DAILY LESSON
TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.
Nothing I see in this room
[on this street, from this window,
in this place] means anything.
1. Nothing I see means anything.
Nothing I see means anything. Why not? It surely looks real enough to my eyes.
Why not? For You have taken Heaven and made it into hell. How have You done this? By removing Love’s All-encompassing dimension from Your vision, so that all You see are things, absent their true Nature.
Nothing You see means a thing as You are not looking at it through the eyes of Love. For Love is the Substance of All Things and to see Love, One must both live and Be Love.
This may be easier to feel through Joni Mitchell’s song lyrics of Both Sides Now:
I’ve looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take and still somehow,
It’s love’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know Love at all.
You could, just as easily, sing this song about the chair in which You are sitting.
While You may not yet understand this at all, You do understand that I have only Your very best interests at heart and wish for You but happiness and peace.
Now let Us do the Lesson together:
1 Now look slowly around you, and practice applying this idea very specifically to whatever you see:
2This table does not mean anything.
This chair does not mean anything.
This hand does not mean anything.
This foot does not mean anything.
This pen does not mean anything.
3 Then look farther away from your immediate area, and apply the idea to a wider range:
4 That door does not mean anything.
That body does not mean anything.
That lamp does not mean anything.
That sign does not mean anything.
That shadow does not mean anything.
5 Notice that these statements are not arranged in any order, and make no allowance for differences in the kinds of things to which they are applied. That is the purpose of the exercise. The statement is merely applied to anything you see. As you practice applying the idea for the day, use it totally indiscriminately. Do not attempt to apply it to everything you see, for these exercises should not become ritualistic. Only be sure that nothing you see is specifically excluded. One thing is like another as far as the application of the idea is concerned.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
