When I got to this lesson I became a bit anxious. If what’s out there doesn’t mean anything and what’s inside doesn’t mean anything. What does mean anything?November 19, 2017 at 3:41 pm #16545
I think the point is that the only meaning it has for you is the meaning you gave it. A piece of wood can be a baseball bat, a fence post, a weapon, etc. By itself, it has no meaning. It just sets there waiting for you to give it meaning. But here is the important part, the meaning you give to it will define for you its purpose and its value. If we’re able to do this lesson as described, we will begin to put everything into perspective. If something adds to our peace, or helps us teach/learn Love, it becomes very valuable to us. If it does not, it will cease to have value for us. This lesson only has whatever meaning you give to it.Ralph LatterFebruary 2, 2018 at 12:36 pm #16563
* the meaning you give to it will define for you its purpose and its value.*
Two or three times to day, I have thought about my thoughts and wondered what it would mean to me if my thoughts meant nothing I think the point is as our anonymous contributor has said.
Say someone you love seems upset and does not want to talk about it but their attitude suggests it is your fault. If they really think it is your fault, that thought they hold is defining how they feel about you, how they act towards you and how they react to you. On the other hand, if in reality, it is only your thought that they are blaming you, when in fact they are not, your thought is defining your mood, attitude, action and reactions. In a sense, a thought has no meaning until it is no longer a thought and is certain knowledge. Very often, certain knowledge is only a strongly held thought.
