“Love will immediately enter into any mind that truly wants it.”—A Course in Miracles
If you want to fish, you need a pole or a net or maybe a spear. But if you really want to up your angling game, nothing beats a pair of polarized sunglasses.
By eliminating glare from the water, you gain a whole new superpower. Polarized filters change the axis of light transmission, so the vertical reflections from the water’s surface no longer block your vision. You can better peer beneath the surface, get a 10-20 on that 35-pound trout. It’s kind of revolutionary.
Just like spiritual practice that enables us to see things anew: each other, the sky, the trees, the habits and patterns and emotional routines in which we so often get stuck.
Spiritual practice allows us to see beyond our private, self-made worlds. It allows us to recognize love in everyone, in everything.
A Course in Miracles, my main spiritual squeeze, can be summarized in five words: Help me see this differently. Whatever it is, I can be sure my view pales in comparison to the Dude’s vision.
That’s my daily mission. To be open to the infinite and therefore see infinite possibilities.
I’m ready for a new pair of shades. How about you? #222 Forever
