Whereas true perception, "seeing" with the spiritual eye, or Christ Vision, is seeing beyond the body, beyond mistakes and connecting with the truth of everyone. This is the practice; eventually and progressively, I begin to be in a world where I see my brothers (and myself) as innocent, their mistakes being just that, mistakes. I relate from my true Self to theirs. Peace, joining, joy and defenselessness become my experience. And the obvious result is to spread this joy. This is healing. This is being in the world and not of it. This new focused and true perception is what takes us Home.

By now, I am understanding we are all God's creation, created from love, as love, whole, perfect, in oneness with God and with each other. There is one holiness, divinity within us that we all share. This unity and Self is changeless and eternal. Not like the body. So, when I see someone as a body (personality, role, physical) I am attacking their true identity and seeing them as weak, impermanent, lacking and myself as well. What I believe I am I will see in another.
I practice seeing another vision with the spiritual eye, or Christ Vision. I look beyond the body (not with my physical eyes) and see the truth. As I do this consistently, I am healing their mind and my own. I am remembering for both of us what we truly are. I ask Spirit for help in this because of myself I can do nothing really. I am so programmed to see the body, judge it and attack. This seems to keep me separate (feelings of isolation and aloneness). In order to experience oneness, joy, peace of mind and truth, I need to see my brother as a pure and innocent being. Not a body.

How easily I can make things always about me. This quote attributed to Yogi Bhajan is true wisdom.
I never know what's really going on with anyone. I don't have that kind of wisdom. But I easily can project my own stuff onto another. Let me instead choose to be understanding and respectful of another's journey. I never know the full picture, so it's not all about me. It's probably not about me at all. I am learning not to take another's behavior personally. There's peace in this.

This is another one of my favorite lessons in A Course in Miracles. I repeat it to often as a reminder that I don't know what is best for me, but God does, and God is within me. So, I decide moment to moment to let go of the reigns, release control (as best as I can), and allow Truth to guide my way. I cannot judge because I don't know the whole picture.
This is today's lesson, #155. I spend the day, hourly, repeating the idea so it stays fresh in my mind.
It also states that we walk to God. This is our journey here, to return Home. And we are also here to remind each other through acts of kindness, compassion, love, and recognizing the light in our brother.
One of my favorite Ram Dass quotes is: "We're all just walking each other home. Ain't that the truth!!!
