Let all things be exactly as they are. It is very practical in every situation to see with the eyes of non-judgment. By having no investment in the play of form, the mind can rest and see only Love behind all things.
The body’s eyes do not see. The first 10 lessons of “A Course in Miracles” lay out this idea very clearly and springboard into the grandaddy of all ideas, “God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.” (W-29) Of course, God isn’t in the table as I see it. Yet the practical element, while I still believe I see through the body’s eyes, is seeing the purpose the table holds along with all the universe: to know I am one with Source. The Holy Spirit equalizes all the images of the world and shows me their sameness so I can be steady and at peace. When I see differences, I am blind. Coming into spiritual vision, I start to see sameness and my mind begins to loosen from the inability to judge. The result is truly peace.
In this world, the ego uses the body for many many things. If you follow the ego, you will seem to get sick and die and have a pretty rough life. If it was a computer, the body would have the default settings of sickness and death. But, the Holy Spirit offers an alternative to the belief in death. The Holy Spirit has only one purpose for the body. The Holy Spirit uses the body as a communication device to expand your perception all the way to forgiveness.

All the teachings of Jesus could be boiled down to just two words: “Judge not.” If we could simply be in a state of complete acceptance and allowance, the idea of a “problem” would be impossible! When we are content with “what is,” we are no longer looking to “get” anything from the world, whether it be attention, money, fame, possessions, or even companionship. Problems only arise when we have expectations about what should be given to us or what should happen for us. But without judgment, everything of time and space is seen as without meaning and the Present Moment is recognized as the ONLY thing that is wanted.
There is a Jesus Christ “central casting” where everything gets handled. You can let go of control and relax. The Holy Spirit will give you what you need. You are safe; you can’t mess it up. Jesus Christ central casting is in charge. You are together with Jesus until the end of time, just looking back at what has already gone by, just imagining that you are making the journey again. You believe that there are still choices open, but this world is all over and done!
In “A Course in Miracles,” the Real World is equated with the State of Enlightenment. It is a state of mind that is an actual experience resulting from an acceptance of our Self as a pure Creation of a Loving God. The Course offers a very direct and radical path towards Awakening to this Truth which involves releasing the belief in separation. During this interview conducted by Penelope Chatterton back in 1998, David explores many topics including the true meaning of forgiveness, the idea that sickness is a decision, and the incredible Joy that is experienced when one relinquishes the idea of judgment!
In this video, David talks about how beauty is a state of mind. To the Holy Spirit everything is love or a call for love. Yet we are unable to distinguish these two orders of reality because we are bound to form and do not understand spiritual Truth. The body’s eyes were made not to see. The five senses are in cahoots with the ego as instruments of judgment. Beauty is the state of mind of non-judgment. Beauty is within, in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is in the mind, not the senses. This state of mind feels beauty everywhere, all the time, regardless of apparent physical conditions. Everything is consciousness, unified, the quantum field. Unification of perception is happiness.
Don’t go into irritation over a noise. Merge with the miracle. It is all interpretation. Give yourself over to unified awareness. Everything is an opportunity. You can judge or go into the glory. God is in everything because God is in my mind. Let your mind be lifted up. All things are the same in unified awareness.
