Lesson one:

Nothing I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] means anything.

Imagine if all of the years of trauma, emotional suffering, shock, faulty beliefs, and just overall baggage we carry with us was eliminated. That’s what this first lesson reminds me of.

If we could clean our lens – so squeaky clean that when we looked out and everything was new, we would look at the world with fascination and curiosity.

There is a book called “My Stroke of Insight” by Jill Bolte Taylor. In this book, a neuroscientist experiences a stroke in which her discriminative faculties are washed away. She talks about the miracles that happen during that time of mind liberation.

Each of the first three lessons should not be done more than twice a day, each – preferably morning and evening. Nor should they be attempted for more than a minute or so, unless that entails a sense of hurry. A comfortable sense of leisure is essential.

Lesson 2:

I have given everything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] all the meaning that it has for me is the second lesson in A Course in Miracles.

I love this lesson because it requires us to take full accountability for our thoughts, beliefs, and not only that but the question them as well.

I have had so many unaddressed and unquestioned belief systems that cause me to suffer. I used to think I had to apply rules and regulations to myself but it just kept me in a box and made me feel tense and suffer. The illusion was that this would keep me in line, but in reality, it caused me to rebel, left me feeling exhausted, and
nothing was ever good enough.
