Teachers of God,
SECOND WEEK! How's it hanging? Are you about ready to throw this Course out the window? I see only the past! We're still working with how our minds construct 'meaning' and what we believe in and how that contributes to our suffering. How do feel about being a world that has no inherent meaning? Make you nervous? Feel off the hook? Maybe hyper responsible, that's what I felt the first few times. That and like child with a bad habit of picking his nose in public. I couldn't stop doing it and I didn't know I was doing it half the time.
Cornerstones 8-14
8.   My Mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.
9.   I see nothing as it is now.
10. My thoughts do not mean anything.
11. My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.
12. I am upset because I see a meaningless world.
13. A meaningless world engenders fear.
14. God did not create a meaningless world.
I have the habit of relying on my past learning to tell me what everything is and what it's for. Because of that I don't ever take a moment and really look without judgement at the beauty around me without a story. I cannot rely on my opinions to give me accurate information about what I'm looking at and what I am supposed to do. When I rely on my opinions and past learning I hurt myself and piss people off. When I believe my opinions I tend to make others wrong and bad and frighten myself with worry and anxiety about getting hurt. But the real world is here too. I'll ask God to show it to me and help me recognize it.

Explanation of Images: What God has placed in your heart to do, you can do. It is in
fact yours to do and is necessary to the wholeness of the world. But we’re afraid of
ourselves and the world we live in. We tell ourselves stories, lies about how the world
works. There is a place of peace within each of us that does know what to do. It’s the
Altar of our Heart. We must not try to take lies and illusion into our hearts. Our heart
will deny them. We are learning the expression of wholeness our heart is trying to
teach us. Wholeness and Peace are of our union with all beings. Let go of the past
learning that tells us our deepest heart desires and longings are not possible. Join
with the supportive universe in creating what it is for you to create and living the life
that you were meant to live. Make a commitment to honor yourself and your treasure.
