“My holiness blesses the world.”
This idea contains the first glimmerings of your true function in the
world, or why you are here.Your purpose is to see the world through
your own holiness.Thus are you and the world blessed together. No-
one loses; nothing is taken
away from any
one; everyone gains
through your holy vision. It signifies the end of sacrifice, because it
offers everyone his full due.And he is entitled to everything, because
it is his birthright as a Son of God.
There is no other way in which the idea of sacrifice can be
removed from the world’s thinking. Any other way of seeing will
inevitably demand payment of someone or something. As a result,
the perceiver will lose. Nor will he have any idea why he is losing.Yet
is his wholeness restored to his awareness through your vision.Your
holiness blesses him by asking nothing of him. Those who see
themselves as whole make no demands.
Your holiness is the salvation of the world. It lets you teach the
world that it is one with you, not by preaching to it, not by telling it
anything, but merely by your quiet recognition that in your holiness
are all things blessed, along with you.
Today’s four longer exercise periods, each to involve three to
five minutes of practice, begin with the repetition of the idea for
today, followed by a minute or so of looking about you as you apply
the idea to whatever you see:
“My holiness blesses this chair.”
“My holiness blesses that window.”
“My holiness blesses this body.”
Then close your eyes and apply the idea to any person who occurs to
you, using his name and saying:
“My holiness blesses you, [name].”
You may continue the practice period with your eyes closed;
you may open your eyes again and apply the idea for today to your
outer world if you so desire; you may alternate between applying it
to what you see around you and to those who are in your thoughts;
or you may use any combination of these two phases of application
which you prefer. The practice period should conclude with a
repetition of the idea made with your eyes closed, and another
following immediately, with your eyes open.
The shorter exercises consist of repeating the idea as often as
you can. It is particularly helpful to apply it silently to anyone you
meet, using his name as you do so. It is essential to use the idea if
anyone seems to cause an adverse reaction in you. Offer him the
blessing of your holiness immediately, that you may learn to keep it
in your own awareness.
