Lesson 2: I have given everything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] all the meaning that it has for me. ( Read or listen to the full lesson, click here.)
This lesson continues the idea from lesson 1. As you gaze at the things, events and people around you, you need to apply this idea to each of them and affirm that you gave it all the meaning it has for you.
For example, if you see a fire, you might give it the meaning of warming yourself on a cold evening. Or it might mean a means of cooking food. None of these are the fire but only meanings you give to it.
ACIM says ”try to apply the exercise with equal ease to a body or button, a fly or a floor, an arm or an apple.” James Twyman, in his commentary on this lesson says that Jesus, who is credited as the author of the Course, must have chuckled when he dictated this.
