“If nothing but the Truth exists, right minded seeing cannot see anything but perfection.” (A Course In Miracles ACIM)
According to the Teacher’s Manual of ACIM, “Right- mindedness listens to the Holy Spirit, forgives the world and through Christ’s vision sees the real world in its place. This is the final vision, the last perception and the condition in which God takes the final step Himself. Here time and illusions end together. Wrong-mindedness listens to the ego and makes illusions real; perceiving sin and justifying anger, seeing guilt, disease and death as real. Both this world and the real world are illusions because right mindedness merely overlooks, or forgives what never happened.”
How Do We Invite Right-Mindedness?
We could choose to invite the Holy Spirit to correct all our error thoughts or wrong-mindedness by
saying and feeling anyone of the following statements before arising in the morning and upon retiring at night:
I surrender all my past thoughts, my present thoughts and my future thoughts into the hands of the Holy Spirit and I AM thankful.
I surrender my will into the Hands of the Holy Spirit this day.
I surrender my stubborn will into the hands of the Holy Spirit.
I release all my problems, fears or mis-creations into the Hands of the Holy Spirit.
I am willing to release my worries, my will over to my Comforter.
You will begin to feel the completion of your prayer being fulfilled when you do it and do so with feeling. When you feel the Presence as you get quiet you will KNOW THAT YOU KNOW YOU KNOW; IT IS DONE. You will no longer have poor relationships with anyone. You’ll be looking into the center of the Light at all things. You will be seeing with right mindedness. I frequently hear such comments as, “…this person at work won’t behave the way he’s supposed to,” or “My wife thinks I never do anything right,” or “That person is always mean, loud or rude.” They may also talk about how their daughter or son is full of trouble, or that they are selfish. They complain of their job or a certain ailment that plagues them. The list goes on and on.
Lack Equals Itself
I have found that what some people don’t realize is that, what they are really saying is they believe in lack. Lack is the idol they have faith in. They have proclaimed lack and they believe in it. They have faith in it. It’s not realized that since they believe in lack, lack has to manifest itself to them as an out-picturing of their thoughts. They are choosing to believe what their eye sees, what their egos (surface mind) sees, rather than what is truth on the invisible plane. The truth is that everything is already and always has been perfect. God has not made anything imperfect. We make what we see imperfect by our perception of it with our eyes and words.
The universe, according to our belief in a thing, will provide the effect of the cause rooted in our thinking. This proves to us that what we perceive to be true is true. That is how the Law of Substance (God-Mind) works, that is how the principle of The Law of Attraction works. It works on what we focus on with feeling, what we believe in even if it is incorrect and it’s not what we want. But by focusing on it, it is magnetized back to us by our faith in the lack.
