A Course In Miracles Lesson 2
A Course In Miracles Lesson 2 states:
I have even everything I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) all the meaning that it has for me.
This lesson continues yesterday’s idea which is asking us to reconsider where we believe meaning and significance to stem from. Significance does not come from objects. Objects are filled with significance by us. We give and refrain from giving meaning to all the things around us.
If you take a moment to do the day’s lesson as instructed in the original text, you may discover how many object you glance at prompt a string of associated ideas about what you look at. So that when I say, I have given this blanket all the meaning it has for me, I discover I am thinking of my grandmother or the town I spent my summers in. Every object we see is equally embedded in a cluster of associations.
The first eleven lessons are very straight forward statements of logic that a reader will have varying degrees of acceptance or resistance to. The book itself even explains that how you feel about the day’s lesson is not really important so long as you give it some level of consideration. You do not have to agree or like the lesson. Just consider how everything you see in this room or wherever you may be is experienced in the way it is because of the complex network of thoughts associated with each object.
