A Course In Miracles Lesson 3
A Course In Miracles Lesson 3 states:
I do not understand anything I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place.)
If our limited perceptions and past experiences are wrapped up in how we see what we see, today’s lesson points out that it would be impossible for us to really understand what we see. What we see is distorted by what we’ve experienced. Everyone’s experiences have been totally different from everyone else’s and so it is a statement of fact when the Course explains that we do not understand what we see.
The lesson is very careful to emphasis that we do not discriminate or evaluate between choosing objects to apply the lesson to. There are not some objects we understand and some we do not. We do not understand any of them. Some objects may evoke more meaning for us than others, which is proof of how we have embed everything with its own sense of meaning based on our past associations.
Today’s lesson teaches how to place judgement aside and begin seeing all things in this world as equal in value, meaning, and importance.
