My holiness envelops everything I see.
W-pI.36.1. Today’s idea extends the idea for yesterday from the perceiver to the perceived. 2 You are holy because your mind is part of God’s. 3 And because you are holy, your sight must be holy as well. 4 “Sinless” means without sin. 5 You cannot be without sin a little. 6 You are sinless or not. 7 If your mind is part of God’s you must be sinless, or a part of His Mind would be sinful. 8 Your sight is related to His Holiness, not to your ego, and therefore not to your body.
W-pI.36.2. Four three-to-five-minute practice periods are required for today. 2 Try to distribute them fairly evenly, and make the shorter applications frequently, to protect your protection throughout the day. 3 The longer practice periods should take this form:
W-pI.36.3. First, close your eyes and repeat the idea for today several times, slowly. 2 Then open your eyes and look quite slowly about you, applying the idea specifically to whatever you note in your casual survey. 3 Say, for example:
4 My holiness envelops that rug.
5 My holiness envelops that wall.
6 My holiness envelops these fingers.
7 My holiness envelops that chair.
8 My holiness envelops that body.
9 My holiness envelops this pen.
10 Several times during these practice periods, close your eyes and repeat the idea to yourself. 11 Then open your eyes, and continue as before.
W-pI.36.4. For the shorter exercise periods, close your eyes and repeat the idea; look about you as you repeat it again; and conclude with one more repetition with your eyes closed. 2 All applications should, of course, be made quite slowly, as effortlessly and unhurriedly as possible.
Yesterday, we learned that our mind is very holy. Today, he reminds us that since our mind is part of God’s it must be holy. If that feels arrogant to think like that, consider this. Because our mind is part of God’s Mind, to think our mind is not holy is to think that there is something in God’s Mind that is not holy. He also has us realize that since our mind is holy, what we see must be holy as well. What a thought! We can go through the day blessing everyone and everything as we remember that our holiness envelops them.
If you are worried about someone or something in your life, this is such a beautiful prayer for them. Envelope them or the situation in your holiness. I need to have my house in order by tomorrow. I also have to do my writing and posting, work on some courses that I am doing with other students, take my daily walk, and then I got a message from my CPA about turning in my tax stuff. Yikes! Too much!
I felt stressed for a few minutes and then I remembered I could choose peace instead of this. Now I see that I can also envelop the whole thing in my holiness. Whew! I trust that I will be guided through my day to what is important that I do. I trust Jesus to arrange the time for me. My mind is very holy and I extend that holiness over all that I see.
