Explanation of Images: We’ve been training our eyes and our brains to look out for certain bits of information. We culturally evaluate others based on how they talk, what clothes they’re wearing and how attractive we find them. We use our bodies to signal others how to treat us. We are mostly relationships, as the course teaches. It also teaches that we are in the one mind of God. We can learn to see that. We can learn to present ourselves that way too. It involves being ourselves in our bodies and letting others do that as well. It involves being present to the information that coming through our bodies. What happens is we step through a door into the eye of a storm. It’s peaceful here, no matter what’s happening. We are present to what exists, but we are peace. We are the center. In this place we meet others as they are. We see God. It’s safe here in this relationship with God. It’s all there is.
