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.)
Today’s idea is applied just like the two previous lessons, without making any distinctions of any kind. Whatever you see becomes a suitable subject for applying today’s idea. Be sure that you do not question the suitability of any object for today’s lesson. These are not exercises in discernment or judgment. If you see an object, it is suitable for today’s exercise. Some of the objects you see may have emotionally charged meaning for you, like a wedding ring, or a photograph. Try to lay such feelings aside and just use these objects exactly as you would any other less “meaningful” objects.
The point of this exercise is to help you clear your mind of all past associations to see things exactly as they appear to you now, and to realize how little you really understand about them. This is why it is essential that you keep an open mind about what you select with your eyes. Putting judgment aside, select things indiscriminately to apply the idea to. One thing is like any other, equally suitable and equally useful for our exercise today.
